Default Isn't this India's version of a BJ74 pickup or something..

I saw it Wednesday on the way home from work in Longmont.

You can see the back window has a Michigan plate and a TEST VEHICLE sticker.

Wes, I wanted to follow them till they got fuel and see about petrol vs diesel, and how much I could pay them to get it for your birthday, but I had to get my kids to swimming.

And the last one is the A-hole who flipped me off because I was trying to get your picture. I'm lucky to be alive because he looks like his finger is ready to put a jihad on me.

I saw something similar in a kind of delivery van the other day, two of them on a flat bed, on Colorado blvd..

I think Overland Journal had an image of their Land cruiser version a few issues back...

I was also really laughing at the the last pic...Dude's finger looks pretty jacked and his cushion behind him and closeness to the steering wheel are dead give aways to us vertically challenged folk..

That exhaust can't be that great for clearance

How about the front hubs that look like something menacing should be attached (like a chariot) as far as they stick out

I hope it's a success for Mahindra. Best case scenario is they sell pretty well and create a buzz - so the other light truck manufacturers try to join them.

But I'm doubtful it'll happen.....

Yep that exhaust would be ripped off in the first pothole they hit. Bu then again if you ever see the cars/mopeds in India they all have funky exhausts on them. Nice to see they hire friendly drivers.............

The guy giving the finger is a different dude, look at the roof rack. Still funny.
