Nice pics, tyres looking good. They allow you to take your vehicle on to the beach at Puri? They didn't earlier but that was decades ago.......haven't been there for ages!

The AT tires do inspire confidence, more so since we are a lot more informed lot here, else ignorance would certainly have been a bliss.

Noticed that your temp gauge is also slight off from the center as mine. Nice to see the same calibration error on another vehicle!
But seriously the Yokos are great. Ill check out the temp gauge tonight.

And nice number plate.
Thanks JK, the Yokos under immediate exchange cost me 10K. I'm not sure how much new ones would cost.

Precisely, but the long range of the 3rd gear comes as an advantage to a certain extent.

And yes, you really have a very cute baby.

Any mileage figures for the trip that you made a note of??
Thanks Dev, didn't check the mileage as the trip was way too short (Only 167kms in total) and yeah he is also slowly turning out to be a terror.

Thanks Suman, once the rains are finally over, i'm going to paint them again. When I was driving on the beach two cops were lookin at us but they didnt stop us. Maybe, because it was not crowded or maybe their sheer ignorance/laziness.

+1 to it. But the visors on 1st and 2nd row look cool. How much did they cost you ? However, safari can never look bad whatever you do to it.

Will the regular 4x2 Safari be able to move on the beach? Or will it get stuck in the sand enroute? Anyone tried this on a 4x2?

Thanks and another +1 to that. I'm not really sure but I guess it would have been around 1700-1800, as I had bought it while fixing woofers in my Chevy Uva. He gave a bundled price.

Don't even try that with a safari. A few years back i just took my Opel swing about 2-3 feet off the road and onto the sand at the same spot and the front wheels just sunk in. Luckily the rear wheels were still on tarmac and two friends had to push it out while I reversed the vehicle. In the Safari it might just go through till you can maintain good momentum, but eventually with all that weight, I feel it'll definetely sink.
