Modified Jeeps are in plenty in the country, but only a few get the mechanical upgrades to become reliable than ever. This one, however, has been fitted with Mahindra Bolero's engine to do so. Read on to know more of this modified low-rider Jeep.
Jeeps are an icon in the world of automobiles. They first came into existence during World War II. In India, they were introduced in 1954 via an alliance between Mahindra and Willy’s Jeep. Even today, these old set of wheels enjoy a cult following around the enthusiasts. Thus a lot of them can be seen on roads, cruising away in pristine condition with flashy alloy wheels. But ever since Mahindra stopped the production of the Jeep CJ3 in India, maintaining them with stock mechanicals became a tough job. Hence owners often opt to restore their possessions with newer turbo-diesel engines from Mahindra. This Jeep in the video here receives similar treatment as well. It looks flamboyant and gets Mahindra Bolero’s powerplant.

As we quoted earlier, this Jeep gets the heart of a Mahindra Bolero, which is a 2.5L 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine. With its tractable power and torque band, combined with good fuel efficiency; it makes this Jeep a lot easier vehicle to live with.
