Mahindra Thar has always been a popular SUV among off-road enthusiasts. With the introduction of new generation Thar, the poularity has gone up even more. It is way more advanced and capable than the previous generation Thar and even now, it has a long waiting period. Just like the previous generation Thar, new Thar also gets a variety of modification options and we have featured some of them on our website in the past. Here we have one such video of a Mahindra Thar that looks massive with its 5 inch lift kit modification.
The video has been uploaded by Thisisgabru on their YouTube channel. It is quite hard to find a Mahindra Thar with no modifications on it. Every modified Thar is different and the one seen here in the video is probably the only Thar in the country to get a 5 inch lift kit. After all the modifications, the overall look of the SUV has completely changed and it looks massive on the road. In this video, the vlogger parks the Thar next to a Wrangler Rubicon and the SUV looks as imposing as the Jeep next to it. In fact, it is taller than the Wrangler.

The vlogger mentions in the video that he has opted for a 5 inch lift kit and with that, he has also upgraded the tyres. The stock 18 inch alloy wheels and tyres have been replaced with an off-road spec rims and massive 37 inch off-road tyres. Even the spare wheel, which is mounted on the tailgate is of the same size. The front bumper has been replaced with an off-road unit and it comes with shackles and also an electronic winch. The suspension setup on this Thar has been upgraded and it is adjustable as well. Just like the front bumper, the rear bumper has also been modified in this SUV. As the spare wheel is now an aftermarket unit and is heavier than the stock unit, a custom made mount has been made to mount the wheel so that it, does not damage the tailgate.
It is also the only Mahindra Thar in the country to get disc brakes on all four wheels. The modifications done on this Mahindra Thar enhance the off-road capability of the SUV. It would have definitely affected the overall handling and ride comfort of the SUV on road. In this video, the owner also takes the SUV to a river bed where his group usually does off-roading. The Mahindra Thar with the 5 inch lift kit and massive tyres was easily towering over all the obstacles. The owner was driving the SUV through extremely rough terrains without much of an issue because, there was no way the SUV was now going to run out of ground clearance. Owner mentions that the on road performance of the SUV has also been not affected much. The SUV with all these modification looks like an absolute monster and is not like any other Thar that we have come across. The owner does not mention the overall cost of this modification in the video.
