I have a question, Is the radiator guard of MM540 interchangeable with Thar? I like the ring around the headlight stamped on the radiator guard.
I think you saw modified white Thar with SPOA , it has attended various events and few RFC.

Yes, net is interchangeable.

Cool, I`m glad to meet yet another Hero Jeep

I was referring to the bit where headlights are mounted on by saying radiator guard, is that interchangeable as well? There is this ring channel around the headlight on the MM series which is a nice detail to have.

Hi,

The front radiator grille can be fitted albeit with alterations made to suit the Thar Radiator, intercooler, condensor and all other fittings. As for the body yes, it will fit. Also, the bottom mounts are different for Thar and 550.

I feel its a lot of work. Not a direct fit.

A question for you. What is the biggest (most powerful) engine you could put into a MM550-MM540 in India?

I mean, without having to do way major exotic surgery, without having to break the bank, without having to diminsih reliability? BD30 is pretty good. Is there yet another upgrade possible and pragmatically speaking beyond the BD30?
Hi DD,

I have the BD30Ti. Shells out around ~150bhp. The best and the most reliable option of retrofitting a reliable and powerful engine would be of a Scorpio chain drive engine and tune the hell out of it.

The reason I opted for the BD30 was weight. I really wanted the jeep to be light weight. if you really want even bigger engines, a v8 petrol from the LC sounds great. It'll fit in the 540, but you'll have to alter the firewall.
