Amazing locales with equally good pictures

Absolutely then TM should now write off my EMIs and sponsor an extensive Ladakh trip. Please anyone, do put up a word to the marketing department or even better to Ratan Tata if you do have contact.

Hell, the Safari got me back from Spiti and Adc back from Chopta valley. Ive taken it to forests in Orissa where there is no road nor a fone network and the Safari did not skip a beat.Cheers,

These are like Reader Digest quotation sentences!!

As suman and tsk had said, newer machines you just cant touch anything. The only extra thing that I carry is a 12 feet nylon rope so that someone can pull me up if I am stuck in a rut.

I think you should contact TML to get a LSD for your rear diff. If its not a difficult fit, it will be very useful. On a recent trip I decided to get out with just LSD without engaging 4x4(was stuck in a freshly harvested field). With little drama, I could get out.
I also liked the ICEd pics. Hopefully this summer I will also visit such locales, and sometime in the future, I will visit sikkim too!
Thanks, going out there with a 6MP camera having a 35 mm wide angle lens is a sin and a crime. A 10-20 lens or even the kitlens 17 mm on a DSLR would be the one to have out there.


LSD will definitely make a difference but here in Calcutta it is not possible to pursue this, feel like North India dealers are much more exposed to the technicalities and will able to manage the TM contacts due to the much more better exposure of Safari they get there due to the increased sell nos. And the other thing is retaining the 4-year warranty after this fiddling.

Default ORVM Heater

This is how the heating takes place. Even I didnt know that there was a heater until my beast crashed. And be careful, the heated ones costs you 4.5k.

Might be difficult to find suitably sized bikini bottoms to fit the Safari's rear. Then again, Hrag's talent may not be limited to the camera alone.
