Great pics Foby! Thanks for sharing them here. Must pick up a 'real' 4x4 sometime to do all that!

Ok, ok, how exactly do you make the Bolero lift his paw? That can be very useful in offroading. A walking bolero...

I saw this feat first on CAR INDIA magazine if iam not wrong! Anyway no secret tricks, you need lots of guts and practise here. Take a sharp turn at speed and Bolero will lift its front wheel. Vehicle will roll beyond this point. Further this can be done on 2wd bolero only due to IFS. 4wd Bolero does not lift its front wheel before rear wheel. Behaves more or less like a jeep. This happens as rear suspension of 2wd is extremely soft and has long travel compared to front IFS.

Samurai this trick has no use in off roading.

Foby, I got a call one day from a friend asking me to come as his Jeep was stuck near Coimbatore. I called my friend in the vicinity who is the Invader seeing rescuing the white invader. Is this your Jeep?

The Bolero lift is crazy.

I saw this Jeep last year and found out that the job is done by fusing eight gypsy discs and 3500 labour cost.

I did not want to learn further. I don't think this will be reliable. I saw the same Jeep again in the Munnar MGE and the wheels were still intact though.

Bolero shot is awesome. Really crazzy! The way the tyre is lifted. How did he manage to get that picture right? How many takes did the Bolero do for that picture?
