Its not with allan, I am doing it @ my regular garage (MASS). The yellow one got sold long back.

100 really?? will that not be too risky? I just came back on from coorg on my gypsy - I could only touch 105 very few times, like on the downhills, else only 80 kms was my avg speed (1.3 carb, softtop).
Back in my home town, a friend (still with the bandages) rolled his 540 with SPOA at 60 km/hr in the highway, since it had the offroading cage it could not stand that impact, even the cage is crumbled.

BTW MASS in bombay do touch gypsies!!! here in pune, they act like they have seen a ghost

Devang, the articulation is to-die-for. Looks like the 'missing shackle' doing the work here.

Looks like your gypsy has come out VERY nice. I can see that you using fused rims also and they helping increase the track width & allowing the bigger tyre size. What J you running on right now?

Post some pictures of the underside, leafs & shackles.

Again, very very nicely done Gypsy.

Khan its all because of your spidey. inspired by your work only.

Articulation is yet not upto to the mark because of stock shocks. missing link opens full but springs only half way.. need bigger shocks but still its awesome with stock shocks too.

Rims and tyres are from allans orangie, i believe its 8.5J. allan can give you exact size.

You need to help me with some tips to make it little more stable.

i will post all the pics soon. too tired and exhausted.

thanks for your comments and for the detailed thread of your own gypsy.

Those are 31" M/T tyres you are using, right ? What rim width are you running ? I was thinking of Yokohama mt's 31/10.5/15 for my Pajero (in future) - how is the performance on - road ?



Cheers

Ricky,

rim details already mentioned above in a reply to khans question.

Performance on road

1) you can definitely feel power loss
2) without the sway bar car goes anywhere because of Heavy wheels
3) Offroad performance is awesome.
4) steering becomes hard as it doesnt have a Power Steering

few changes going on with the vehicle to make it more stable and may be in future i will install PS.

Pardon me, but I missed the rim details, no problem. Considering that the Pajero is way more torquier than the Gypsy & has power steering & I am running Ironman suspension liftkit, I should be ok with this size, I reckon, I wanted the 32" or 33" but it seems that 33" would foul with suspension & these tyres are got on order only, so going by the above I think 32" should be safe & 31" the safest bet..

I think if you were to install a PS you would be way better than now !!

Many thanks.




Cheers
