Lovely jeep. I would like to change the shoes to 7.00x16 non-directionals, but then everybody has their own tastes. What's under the hood?
I've been so sick of the dabwalli so called "low-bonnet" jeeps, that frankly i lost all taste for even the original low hoods. Out of all jeeps , i love the flatfenders best, and since low hoods are out, it leaves only the high hood 3B in the picture.

Dear Jammy,
First of all, thanks a ton to you for letting me drive this Jeep. This is the first (n still the only ) Jeep i've driven in my life.
I always thought that Jeeps had an extremely hard ride quality, noisy engines, rough transmission n so on n so on.
But this jeep made me realize that i was totally wrong. It has a really smooth, yet powerful engine, smooth gears. I just fell in love with this Jeep.
Super Jeep Jammy! I hope, i own one some day.
Cheers,
Deepak

I had described this Jeep in the very first post of my Savandurga report:

Quote:
It was a SWB running Bolero XD3P engine (75BHP), with a 4+1 gearbox (4th on overdrive), 4.27:1 axle ratio and 31x10.5 Michelin LTX tyres.

Music system? I bet you canot see that thing in any of Jammy's Jeep They are all Re-Built for hardcore Offroading. At any OTR joints, Jammy will at least find 3 to 4 Jeeps once belonged to him Looks awesome after the paint Job Jammy!!!

Thanks

ehh, with a 4+1 gearbox (4th on overdrive)?
I did'nt quite get it. 4th gear as overdrive?
Is he using something like a saturn overdrive unit that bolts to the xfercase or is it a different type of gearbox other than the Kmt90?

Wicked wheels,
A very well done body and paint job... excellent.
Rims and Top do not compliment the rest of your Jeep, Tyres are good but 16 inchers would be more suited for the mean machine look and added lift. Rear end is too bland. Foot rest should have been more thick and protuding.
On the whole a good specimen.

Great looking Jeep, however you should have a rollcage.

I don't see a foot step, he only has a rock slider.

The foot rail or rock slider (red arrow) should have been thicker not only for looks but also for durability esp. for rock sliding.

Well, it depends on the material and the construction, hard to asertain that from the photos. I have seen thin rocksliders that are really stong.

+1 to that. It is very well possible to have thin rock sliders that are equally durable.

Hi test drive,
A very neat looking MM550 XD. I have few questions for you-

1. What type of P/S assembly is it? How much did it cost you?

2. The rear springs are flat. Did you make it like that for better ride quality?

3. Does your vehicle have an A/C? If yes which make and cost please?

with regards
N Vinod
