      Jeeped!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      It has been long time dream to own a jeep. I have been fantasing driving a jeep from my school days.. and finally the day arrived that I own a jeep.

      Its an army auctioned jeep and pre-registered one in a different state. So shouldn't have too much trouble in re-registering in bangalore

      I plan to get the following things done.

      Full buildup of the jeep(guess this should be enough to tell what things are going to be done)

      Stage 1
      1. Engine/Gearbox/Differentials/Brakes(overhaul/rebuild)
      2. Body (Tinkering)
      3. New Paint job
      4. Power steering (I need this as I am not a He-Man)
      5. Better seats in front. Plan to retain the side seats(request from daughters). May be this will be changed after they travel few kms and if they feel they need front facing seats.
      6. 2" Shackle lift + 2" lift kit(based on vitamin M)
      7. Innova shocks
      8. Soft top
      9. Retain the army rims and put 245/75/R16 ATs or HTs


      Stage 2

      1. 6 point rollcage(In plan but not sure when I can get this one)
      2. AC at a later stage
      3. Front bumpers with Winch (Not sure how much this is going to be useful for me)
      4. Side rock sliders( plan to use them as steps to get into the jeep)
      5. Automatic convertible top (If available for the 550)

      Congratulations kvk aka Karate master. Jeep and Power steering wont go hand in hand know? Jeep thingy is when it is rugged and being a karate master you cannot say that you cant handle jeep without power steering. The real fun is to drive without PS know?

      Having fun and being practical is two different things...


      PS : If I am martial art student doesn't mean I will have bulky muscles to handle the jeep in city traffic
