Correct me if I am wrong but aren't the chassis and the body supposed to be in one line.

Hi NDMS the jeep is in a rut where it is articulating so the chassis is not in line with the body. It could also be that when the body swayed to one side the photo was taken, no problems with the jeep tough.

no james, remember thats the spot you droped the entire 1.5L sprite between my legs, so the extra weight is causing the body tilt

on a more serious note, its just the chassis twist that u see apart from the regular suspension travel

@ NDMS: It may be because of C-Section chasis that the earlier MM540/550 jeeps had. It had a bit greater amount of flex than current NGCS chassis. However this may be experiencd only during such high articaulation scenes. Nothing wrong with the Body & Chassis fitmnet.

My first ever experience of offroading and it was stunning. Before this day I never new what is offroading and how it is done but I thank a ton to my friend Danny who told me about this and took me along with him.

Chassis flex in extreme articulation is normal. Clearly seen on MM540 more than other vehicles. Modern vehicles have less flex in the interest of handling.
