Now why cant the Tata guys offer that REAR parcel shelf / cover as an option in India! I've seen something like that on the Indigo Marina as well..

I do not know what is the use of so huge parcel tray at the back?

By the way I am in serious thought of making some parcel tray Just above the rear single seat height. I would ask my carpenter to make it with 19mm plywood. It will serve two purpose

1. It will safeguard small luggage during long drive.
2. Upper side with some cushioning would help people to relax or stretch themselves during long drives. (My cousins Qualis had similar setup and it was very helpful stretching/sleeping during long drives).

If you do this then I think you can also mount your twin 6X9 on parcel tray itself

Ok.. Its my turn now, finally, to start posting in this thread with pictures.

Here is my new Safari EX delivered this past Saturday. Pleased to be here in the company of other Safaris.

My son calls it 'Bulgy', named after a character in 'Thomas the tank engine' kids series.

Mine would be temporary arrangement. I will put only when we will go for long drives. Rest of the time it will be at home.

Twin 6X9 I will put horizontally as of now it is vertically.

Never seen one like that.

And that 3L wheel cover is to die for, Wonderful mod.
Pavan, that's not a MOD but BJ got his Safari with the 3L Wheel cover by luck.

Thanks Pavan, Indian Ranger and Kavi for appreciation.

That is correct. Probably, TML wanted to get rid of 3.0L inventory or I was just plain lucky. However, I missed the face lifts like ORVM indicators by a couple of month.

@ACM: The car looks good. Just get those PLASTIC things (above rearmost mirrors) also painted to either white or blue. Also the BONNET and bumpers need paintjob.

BTW, How are those AUX lights working?

You seem to have a two-tone by intention and mine is three-tone by majburi!

The front door handles broke and couldn't find a replacement so got them from the scrap market. Driver side is white, passenger front is black, car is maroon

Will be getting this back to monotone hopefully soon! Jeep just takes away all my spare money

Mercedised, AVR, thanks,

but somehow I think I am going to loose membership of this Safari club - have just put up my grand old man for sale on TBHP. It's a hard decision for me, but just can't find the time to maintain 3 vehicles at a time, and this time the family too feel that Safari must go.

Mods : pls move this to appropriate thread if required. Positng it here since it is not a weird / whacky mod.


Note : This is NOT my Safari. Spotted this at our office parking lot yesterday.


Looked nice, though on closer inspection the transition between the body & the extra pieces on the head-light stand out a little too much. Also note the blackened pillars - A pillar included. The grille is now meshed, not the OE one.

@condor : Rather than all this effort, he should have gone in for alloys on the Safari. It would add a lot more to the looks than the headlight treatment. The headlights would have looked fine if it wasnt for the eyelashes.
