Mahindra Thar to Jeep Wrangler Conversion – Other Details
The first step that the good chaps at Jeep Studio undertook was to compare the dimensions of the Thar and the Wrangler using dimensional blue prints. Next, they bought a Thar and stripped it down right to the chassis. The custom body panels were then hand crafted to mate the aesthetics of the 3-door Wrangler with the underpinnings of the Thar. Jeep Studio asserts that the engine compartment has been left untouched to enable ease of servicing and maintenance. Speaking on this, Mr. Naveen K, CEO, Jeep Studio, said,“While designing the engine room layout, we challenged ourselves on better design for serviceability. As the result, we have retained exactly same engine room, such that all the spares, hoses, clips, fasteners are all exactly same as OE Thar,” said Naveen K, the CEO of Jeep Studio.
