Wow ! Khan Sultan - I went thru all the 5 pages of the Bangalore OTR and it is a treat. Scorpio pics with snorkel was the first one I could see in action and now appreciate the utility of it after seeing the pictures. I didnt know such stunts can be pulled off out of a Scorpio.

I guess like me many Scorpio owners would now secretly wish their scorpio too may have this done as a necessary fitment- only hitch would be that while its very utilitarian and excellent offroad- in the city- it will look odd to have a car without bumper and grills in front.

It has both customized exhaust & a snorkel for air intake.

There is no warn winch on this one. The bumper has been removed permanently. Believe me, the street presence of this scorpio is just toooo MEAN. One would just give way to it.. no messing around look.

Fact remains that it is a soft SUV at best. This one is HIGHLY customized and goes though a hell lot of things/pain. Pictures at times convey just part of the story.

Having said that, it is a very capable machine that can perform quite well with some modifications

So I noticed in the OTR thread subsequently. Ought to have one, what with the Warn sticker on the back! Would look REALLY mean then!

Any reports on electricals/electronics problems subsequent to the adventures in water?

wow the Bangalore otr team has really been growing in numbers and i think you guys have one of the best reports / reporters out there giving excellent coverage. have always been an avid reader but have kept shut and not bombarded the threads with pointless comments as i am on a steep learning curve so its wait and watch and learn for now.
although i must say sultan bhai you are an inspiration

A few pics of the Hawk-on-fours from our trip to Corbett. The first two were at the same place, different times - 5:30PM, and later, 9:00AM the next day.
