Mahindra has been a vehicle manufacturer that Indian buyers have mostly related with rugged looking SUVs. One of those rugged looking MUVs that Mahindra still manufactures is Bolero. Mahindra had made changes in this vehicle to make it compliant with current safety and emission norms. It is an MUV that has been in production for over two decades and is still in demand. At one point, Mahindra used to offer bolero with 4×4. It has been a popular SUV among off-road enthusiasts for its bold, raw looks and off-road capabilities. Here we have a video of Mahindra Bolero 4×4 that has been neatly modified to make it more capable off-road.
The video has been uploaded by Revokid Vlogs on their YouTube channel. The vlogger starts by showing all the modifications done to SUV and then later takes it out for a spin. This is a 2006 model Mahindra Bolero 4×4. Starting with the front, the owner has installed a hi-lift jack on the bonnet. The front gets a custom made metal bumper and electric winch is also integrated with it. The headlights on this Bolero are the stock unit but, it gets LED bar lights in front of the bumper and set of six HID lights on the roof.
Coming to the side profile, the SUV gets steel rims with 33 inch MT tyres from Maxxis. The vehicle has been lifted for almost 4 inches and that is very much visible on this car. This Bolero also gets suspension kit from Rough country. A stainless steel snorkel has been installed on this SUV and the fenders are custom made units. The owner has also installed custom foot steps and sand ladder on this SUV. There is a luggage rack installed on the roof which might come handy during extreme adventure trips.
At the rear, there is a spare wheel mounted on the tail gate. The mount on which the spare wheel is mounted is also a custom made unit. A heavy duty pintle hook has also been installed at the rear. There are LED lights at the rear of the SUV as well. On the inside, this Bolero gets a basic cabin. The side facing third row seats have been removed by the owner. There are switches on dashboard to control the LED and HID lights installed on this SUV.
Owner mentions that, he takes this SUV off-road almost every weekend and he has made changes and modification accordingly. There is a master cut off switch which completely cuts off power from battery. There is even a switch which needs to be pressed after the turning the key. buttons to control the winch are also placed here. This SUV also gets a custom made stainless steel exhaust which has sweet sound to it.
The vlogger then takes this SUV off-road on a hilly road and was very impressed by the performance. As the vehicle has been lifted, it has enhanced the off-road performance. The vlogger was driving through a fairly bad stretch and even then, it felt very easy inside the cabin. This Mahindra Bolero is powered by a 2.5 litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine. This engine generates 68 Bhp and 138 Nm of peak torque.
