Default Monster Toyota Hilux Surf

Probably belongs to Bharat Dabholkar. Has as much presence as the Hummer H2. And the fact that he got it only for 9 lakhs

His FTO has doors taken from the Toyota Sera. Its seen quite regularly on the road. Looks ok but his Hilux takes the cake

This is one monster that has always made me go weak in the knees. I have seen it several times in South Bombay since the last 5 years odd.

No pictures will do justice to this machine. Its a 10 out of 10 for character and road presence.

P.S. This has sort of inspired me to do a "lift" job on the CJ.

P.P.S. Did you know Bharat Dabholkar has a glass flooring in his office, with snakes underneath!

just by seeing the picture i can feel the road presence this monster has.it would definitly look a lot better in black and the suspension springs if visible will really make it look like a monster truck.man im in love with this.

Awesome set of wheels....

Thats one helluva car no one would mess with.

Yeah in black it sure would have looked hotter.... with a set of flames stickering done on its sides and on the hood....

Also a set of 4 huge round fog lamps on the roof mounted on a bull bar would have given it more raw appeal.....

Default Monster Truck

Hi all, I am sure many of you must have seen this SUV turned Monster truck...I saw it for the first time and was shocked by seeing the size of the tires...anyways check out the pic.

Wow!. thats lot of rubber.

Little off topic, do you require any special sanction from RTO for all these modifications?. especially like this?.
