I also started on jeeps, but I'm just a weekend mechanic! Jeeps are very simple to work on and fun! I'm talking about pre-JK ha ha.

and die hard too. I like the old Willys Jeeps . . . 10 spline Danas w/5:38 gears, 72 HP F134 4cyl., 3 sp T-90 with a Dana 18 & Warn OD, that's MY baby right there. The last of the flat fenders, CJ 3b , don't care for the German Dainler or Italian Fiat Jeeps either.

The Mahindra jeep (Axe)

India is an odd country in that instead of a highway system the country has been almost completely dependent on railroads to move people and goods. I know nothing of their trucks but I wouldn't be at the head of the line of new buyers.

#1 I'll believe that when I see it at a dealership, and not a second sooner. Jeeps famous for not delivering on concepts. Hurricane and gladiator are two that stick out in my mind.

#2 let's not judge it quite yet. If jeep put it's own spin on it, I might be pretty excited. That short wheelbase, I'm sure a very low msrp, and 4 wheel drive would make it pretty formidable. It'd basically be jeep's samurai, but newer. I'd buy one in a second!

For what it's worth, approximate price conversion from Rupees to USD is about $13,500.

They'll never convert the price straight over. They know they can charge a premium and they will, if they ever come!
