From a shop in opera house, Bombay. yes, drilled holes in the bumper, no brackets. the light beam doesnt shake unless rattled by extra large pothole stretches.

dear tajas, it was done in 1st gear, max rpm (4500), speedo (aroung 35-40). Handbrakes not used . I just completely turned the steering while moving slowly and then just pressed full accelerator in and kept it fully pressed in 1st gear only. I wasn't able to do that in 2nd gear.

I love to drive both . Safari's powerful, more suv feeling than vitara. Safari gives you "King Of Road" kind of feel. Driving Vitara after driving Safari feels safe. Because its brakes are better and the vehicle feels more under control than safari. Safari is a better off roader than vitara.

Ya and also were you scared to increase speeds and change gears for fear of toppling or you just liked the powerband in the 1st gear?

This was done in 2WD or 4WD high or low?

Next time you do this, ask someone sit with you and shoot an insiders view also.

I shifted to 2nd gear but car wasnt able to do that because engine was not able to take that load. beacuse in 1st gear tyres were spinning at 35-40kmph . and spinning in 2nd gear means speed increased and i think it will be too much.

It was done in 2WD mode. In 4WD mode its not possible.
