Nice looks and great specs not to mention the 45 degree dep angles

Just from a newbie's point of view, though cosmetic modifications might be very much possible, the mechanical transformation of coil and associated stuffs are tricky and more from a reliability aspect. Very few examples of those kind of modifications exist here.

everything done to the jeep in the photos can be done here in india, it all depends how much $$ you have and how much you willing to spend.

there are many examples on TBhp where many jeeps and gypsies have been done by people like Allan from Goa, Raj from NOIDA and many others.

things and stuff required to build a vehicle like are available in india or can be arranged or made!

so have mullah will make!

What are the engine specifications in the incarnation of the CJ3B???

79k U$D is a lot of money. Converted to INR comes to almost 40 lacs!!! MAN THAT A LOT.
For maybe 25% of that amount spend over here on a CJ3B we can have a much more capable machine!!! But the question is who would spend something like that. Regarding workshops I think we have the people to execute something like this!!!

But something like this is like having the best of both the worlds!!!

Good information is available there. Info on this link

@Ricky 3007: The wheels seem very similar to what is available from "Cragar: 342 Series Black "D" Window ". Here is the link

Default Re: ICON CJ3B reincarnation

Wow, this is an awesome looking whale of a JEEP. How much will it take to bolt a 1.3 MULTIJET engine into an indian CJ3B shell and bring about all those LED lights, plastic interiors, winch et all? Is it possible to get a TOTALLED vehicle with an almost intact 1.3MJD engine for this cause. If so, how can the endorsements be made in the RC book. Oh my lotsa questions here and am hungry for info as if I'm a hungry goat in a dry desert land
