  1. Thankyou @munkybizness for bringing up this one. We started off-roading more or less at the same time and this might be a good time to consider this subject even though I would like to believe that I fall in to the category of so called 'purists' in terms of mods. I bought my Jeep mainly for off-roading (its not my daily driver), but I got it in stock form and tried to keep it the same. As of now the only thing I have done is 1- 80Amp Amaron battery as @Gaurav mentioned when my old one died. 2- I had my first pop out on my 53rd drive and until then I had kept the HT tyres came with the car when I bought it. Now I have changed to LT/AT tyre but with the stock measures of 245/75/R16. I had a presumption that changing to a bigger tyre will give me more traction but @Frederic advised me to keep it in stock size and I am glad that I did not change the size. Also to be honest I do not feel much of an improvement in performance by changing my HT tyre to AT (It looks great through!). But I feel the following mods are inevitable for me and hopefully can be accommodated in the next year's budget. 1. Head lights: changing the head lights (I have the stock Neon / Yellow ones and it does not even give me enough illumination on road let alone during a night drive. But I want that retro look and still have not managed to find a retro looking bright head light). 2. Suspension: I have stock suspensions/ shocks which gives me real trouble on bumpy climbs as it is very easy to loose momentum. I eventually want to go with a stiffer suspension. Many people have advised me to get a 2" lift along with the suspension (which apparently will improve my ridge riding abilities ๐Ÿ˜) but I am still considering only about a stiffer suspension. 3. A roof rack: A Rhino / equal rack may be a good addition if I want to roam around with family during winter. Bonus will be the looks. Really like what @Ranjan Das got now.
  2. Congrats @varunmehndiratta Well done. Hope to join one of your convoys soon. Love your trip posts and briefs๐Ÿ˜Š
  3. Sorry Sri @Srikumar my car is still not sorted- starter motor and differential issue, will have to sit this one out. I will remove myself from the drive.
  4. Thanks @Looper for the write up. It was different and more challenging than some of the other drives which I have been recently. The car is in the garage and hopefully they will get to the bottom of the starting issue. I think it is time to put up the looper sticker which I have kept carefully until now.โ˜บ๏ธ
