Mahindra Bolero has often been modified to look like Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen but here is a build that is inspired by the G63 AMG 6X6! The limited-edition G63 AMG is something that most people cannot even imagine to buy but this Mahindra Bolero based 6X6 modification costs only Rs 5.5 lakhs, including the cost of the vehicle. That’s not much at all for such a build! Here is the owner of the Mahindra Bolero 6X6 who has also modified the vehicle all by himself. He explains the vehicle in the video.
The Mahindra Bolero is based on a ladder-frame chassis, which allowed the modder to modify the chassis and increase the overall length of the vehicle. The car’s length has been increased by a few inches to accommodate the third axle. The extra length and some part of the cabin have been chopped off to make a flatbed, which again is inspired by the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG.
Even though the vehicle has three axles, only two of them are powered at the moment. However, the owner says that the vehicle can be made into a 6X6 at any moment. As per the owner, a new great has to be added between the second and the third axles to make it a proper 6X6. However, it should be noted that power all the wheels require more power and of course, more fuel. This decreases the fuel efficiency of the vehicle. The owner says that the 6X4 set-up is sufficient for his current requirement. The rear wheels are installed on leaf spring suspension, which can be seen working flawlessly on the off-roading sections.
The 4X4 system installed in the Mahindra Bolero comes from a Maruti Suzuki Gypsy. Also, the engine has been replaced with a new one from Mahindra Scorpio. This vehicle gets the SZ2600 2.6-litre diesel engine from the Scorpio. This chain-drive engine is highly reliable and can go on for lakhs of kilometres without throwing any major problems.
This video also shows the cabin of the modified Bolero for the first time. The Bolero also gets a massive sunroof too. The additional changes include a high-lift jack, a snorkel, a rear flatbed cage and more such modifications. This particular Bolero is not on sale at the moment. However, if you want, you can contact the owner to get similar changes and other changes too.
It should be noted that such modifications include a lot of structural changes, which makes these modification jobs illegal. However, you can continue to use them in private locations like a farmhouse or off-road tracks. If you take such a heavily modified vehicle to the public roads, the cops will definitely issue a fine or may even seize the vehicle.
