Though if someone were upgrading to VX 4X2 over the GX 4X4, I would say that GX 4X4 makes more sense, the airbags some into play only after an accident, and in a large SUV may not be critical.
+1 to the above. Going for ABS makes more sense than 4x4. (Well, you will finally regret that you did not go for a 4x4 GX, but that will be another story).

For a SUV of this mass, having ABS is a must-have IMHO.

Default Black Tigress in Khajuraho and Pandav falls- Few pics

Here are few pics of the Black tigress from our short weekend trip to Khajuraho and Pandav falls. This was our first trip in this black beauty, and she took everything in her stride to give us a smooth ride in a mostly bumpy and dusty NH 86.

@LongDrivelover: this trip was the spiti loop, and the pictures are along the loop. I have a 3L EX 4x4. It is possible to do it in a 4x4, but there are many places where you might have to half clutch, which can be avoided in a 4x4

@Trancenut, can you pl. share:

(1). The location of this trip, the scenery is so beautiful, jut couldn't resist asking it. (2). Do you have 4x2 or 4x4. (3). The place you visited (as shown in these pics), can it be done with a 4x2 without any risk of getting stuck?
Thanks Nordmariner

Pretty unforgiving territory. Impressive.

Great pics LDL, the first trip [wherever it may be ] always remain a cherished one for long. Hope you have good tours in future!



Missed out on your images, fantastic pictures among all the snow. The spare tyre cover with "Safari" written is way, way better than our current model with that oversized overfed "T" Really dont like to take the backside photo because of that "T"! Best of luck on your future tours.

This reminds me of our picture in Spiti itself last year [October 2008], all the splashing and dashing!! Great consecutive pics of two generation Safaris performing with aplomb. Koi shak??

sierrakamat - the TCIC looks good, when (if it was) was it repainted last?

Was it originally with blue colour cladding or was the cladding grey originally.

Mine is the same colour 2001 TCIC with grey cladding.

@ adc. Thanks. Yes, first visits are always memorable. I too agree that our present spare wheel cover doesn't look as nice as the previous one.

@ trance_nut. Thanks for sharing the info.

@ sierrakamat. Great view. It looks like coming from the showroom! Old is Gold, as they say.
