Mahindra Thar and Jeep Wrangler carry an uncanny resemblance. Even though both the cars are available in the Indian market, the Jeep Wrangler carries an exponential price tag and remains out of the reach of many enthusiasts. Such people use the Mahindra Thar and transform it into the Jeep Wrangler with minimal changes. Here is one such beautiful modification that is done by the Jeep Clinic.
What are the changes?
The modification is based on the Mahindra Thar. It gets a new Jeep Wrangler inspired grille with the angry-bird headlamp cover. To add the premium look, it also gets LED headlamps with LED DRLs. However, the shape of the headlamps remains round to give the authentic feel to the vehicle. There is a long LED bar mounted on the top of the windscreen of the Thar too, it is illegal to use on the public roads but can be extremely useful while doing off-roading at night. There are two more small LED auxiliary lamps placed on the bumper of the Thar.
The bumper itself is aftermarket and off-roading grade. It is made up of steel and gets an off-road bullbar attached to it. Jeep Clinic has also added an extreme stance to the Thar by installing extremely wide fenders. The wheels have also been upgraded to the off-roading ones with big block mud terrain tyres. There is also a hardtop roof installed in the vehicle. It should be noted that Mahindra only sells soft-top canopy roof with the Thar but many customers get it changed to hardtop for durability and safety. Apart from these changes, the vehicle remains stock.
Mahindra Thar is an extremely popular vehicle in the Indian market and off-roading enthusiasts prefer the vehicle for a number of reasons. Mahindra also offers various factory customisation options that can change the way it looks completely. Mahindra is also said to be working on the all-new Thar that is expected to be launched in 2020 but the brand has not announced anything officially yet.
