there is no updates to update this thread!!

looks like i will have to skip EXMM/AKC this year.

so possibility is that i will mod this vehicle from ground up to a extreme offroader.
all work (read-as much as i can ) will be done DIY way.

with new,
  • Engine
  • 5+1 GB
  • BW TC
  • axles
  • body
  • re worked suspension
  • chassis mods
basically re engineering the whole vehicle with existing parts from other vehicles.

so it may take a month or a year to update this thread.
& even more to complete this vehicle.

rgds,
Nikhil

EDIT: after logging off i am going to complete the tools list for the DIY workshop that i am planning to build at our MIDC plot with all the necessary fabrication tools.
& the workshop is my main priority now.

You already have a Digi Warner transfer case. Incase you decide to sell your current gearbox TC setup, please sell it to me.

Dear Nikhil , please spend some time with your Jeep before modding it .Take a year for this ( driving ,offroading & maintaining it as a standard vehicle ). Meanvhile make a detail plan of modifications & alterations WRT possibilities in doing it your way & with available resources .

yes that was the initial plan but lack of STOCK spare parts availability is pushing me to take this route.

i will discuss this with you offline.
