Nice pics dude. The Tyres and the Rims are matching so well with the jeep. The tyres are uni-directional so the spare can be fitted only to the right. People who uses them keeps two spares with opposite direction treads.
One question: Is there any special purpose for making that bullbar?

Yes that A-bar is to prevent front roll over while coming down a steep incline. It is made of a 5mm thick hydrallic oil seamless pipe so its strong enough to take an impact or push things out of the way.
Here are some videos.

Love the rubber on the red CJ. Hopefully, we catch up at an OTR soon and I can take a quick spin in it. Before installing the same tyres on my Classic

I'm not a big fan of fording through water though. Water messes up the alternator, starter etc.

Stunning action and thrill nice pictures. Where did you go for this? Looks like perfect place for off-roading. Is it on the way to Lavasa city?

What issues about wheel well fouling and touching while steering in full lock position?

Also to what did you change your dif to then, to compensate for extra weight, etc?

Also, did the extra weight affect the tail gate? did you need to strengthen some parts of it?

Hi Tejas, I did not do any mods as of now it is totally stock setup except the wheels have 1'' spacers. One side steering lock bolt has broken so on that side the wheel does touch. My alloys are 8j size now but will be changing to 8.5j soon so the tire hight will decrease. The tail gate is stock no changes done but its holding the weight as of now but will be changing it soon.
