The entire modification took 2 months to complete – Order was placed by Nagpur based customer
Vehicle modifiers get a wide variety of customization requests from their clients and there’s absolutely no dearth for innovative ideas. Some of these ideas can be truly spectacular whereas others can be in the range of being average or just too loud or impractical. In this latest customization project, an old Jeep has been converted into a low rider vehicle. The final product is something that an auto enthusiast would certainly like to try their hands on.
Jeeps are meant for off-roading, so its transformation into a low-rider does come across as a unique concept. Talking about the exteriors, the modified Jeep gets a contrasting orange and black dual colour theme. While the bonnet and side and rear body are done in bright orange, rest everything else comes in black shade.
Key features at the front include the signature angry bird grille, projector headlamps, and additional front bumper with dual horns, two hooks and LED lights. The side profile features wooden door accessory, side-step with roping, dummy twin silencer and wide custom alloy wheels with chrome accents. At the rear, the modified Jeep has LED tail lights and a spare tyre mounted on the rear hatch.
Key features on the inside include matte black colour theme, manually adjustable bucket seats and air conditioning. The modified Jeep has been supplied with a detachable roof, but that has not been shown in this video. Other key features include power steering, power brake and power clutch.
Mahindra Bolero engine
Under the hood, there’s a 2.6-litre DI turbo diesel engine capable of delivering 63 PS of max power and 180 Nm of max torque. This engine has been taken from an old Mahindra Bolero. Clients can choose from various other engine options, as per their specific requirement.
RTO certified modifications
The low rider Jeep has been built by Haryana based Jain Motors, whose workshop is located in Mandi Dabwali. According to the garage owner Deepak Jain, the modified Jeep has ground clearance of around 5-6 inches. All the required modifications have been done as per the specifications provided by the client, who is based in Nagpur. Total cost of the project was around Rs 4 lakh and it took approximately two months to complete.
Jain said that he offers his customization services all across India. He also arranges for the necessary NOC and other paperwork for the modifications, so that issues with traffic police can be avoided. Shipping across India is also available, but shipping charges are extra.
