Mahindra Thar that was launched in the market few years ago is still one of the popular vehicle among off-road and SUV owners group. Just like the previous generation Thar, it is actually very hard to find a Mahindra Thar with no modifications on it. Mahindra Thar owners from different parts of the country have been experimenting with new modifications. Some of them looks great while some do not. Some Mahindra Thar owners modify the SUV to look more premium while other focus on enhancing the off-road capabilities. Here we have one such Mahindra Thar that comes with extreme modifications.
The video has been uploaded by Thisisgabru on his YouTube channel. In this video, the Mahindra Thar owner talks about all the modifications that he has done to his SUV. The owner wanted to enhance the off-road capabilities of the SUV and the modifications revolved around that theme only. Starting from the front, the stock grille has been replaced with an aftermarket unit with aftermarket LED headlamps integrated into it. The bonnet does not have any modifications. Coming down, the original bumper on the SUV has been replaced with an aftermarket off-road spec unit.

This is not a wide bumper to make sure that it does not rub against the wide and large wheels. The metal off-road bumper gets provision for fog lamps and there are D shackles installed in it. A electronic winch is also installed on the SUV. When compared to a regular Mahindra Thar, this one looks huge and the main reason behind that is the lift kit that has been installed to this SUV. It gets a 5 inch lift kit. The axle on the SUV remains stock at moment but, the owner has plans to upgrade that as well. He can be seen showing the new suspension set up, lower and upper arms and link rods in the video. He has opted for a Neon yellow and Nardo grey theme for these parts.
There is a thick metal sheet that acts as skid plate and the fuel tank and DPF tank also gets metal casing for added protection. The underbody of the SUV has been prepared for extreme situations. The next attraction on this SUV are the tyres. The owner has opted for huge 37 inch rough terrain tyres. This also increases the overall height of the Thar. The off-road spec rims are all blacked out and they looks great on the SUV. The link rods at the rear have also been modified just like at the front. This is the first Mahindra Thar in the country to get disc brakes on all four wheels.
The owner can be heard saying that this has improved the braking massively. At the rear, the spare wheel is also a 37 inch unit. It is heavier than the stock 18 inch unit which is mounted on the tail gate. A custom mount was made for the spare wheel so that it does not put load on the tail gate. It is now resting on the rear bumper which is also a custom made off-road spec unit. The tail lights have also been modified.
