Yeah but most of the beaches require 4WD, they won't even let you use an AWD on the sand, let alone a 2WD

I would imagine that when you air the tires down to 12 or 15 pounds, there would not be any beach on the East Coast that you could not go on.

Yeah I was just saying to conserve fuel you don't have to throw it in 4wd unless you need it.

Too true. I remember a day down in Hatteras when I got excited by the surfer girls in their skin tight wetsuits and forgot to put it into 4WD. I drove for miles with 15 pounds of air in 2WD before I realized.

Ha. I can't wait to see people mod their Mahindras like that.

Default lockers?

Black probably.
Blacked out definitely!
Leather maybe, just depends on what their leather
feels like. If not, probably neoprene covers, easy to clean and quite durable.

Window tinting, definitely.

Possibly new speakers. From an Australian review, sounds like they may be inadequate. Of course, its hard to say what bits will change between the Pik-up and the American model, but probably something as minor as speakers won't change.

Now for the fun stuff

Rip the bed off, put a tray (flat bed) on.

235/85R16 Bridgestone All Terrains. I have them on my Cherokee and absolutely love them on bad roads and mountain trails. They work on 1 ton Ford duallies too, so I know they carry loads too.

Black powder coated wheels, definitely.

Mild lift, only if needed to properly clear those tires. Its hard to do any lifts without compromising load carrying. I saw a 2" body lift somewhere that might make the front tires clear. As I'll probably have to build the rear flatbed, it won't be difficult to make the bed clear larger tires.

Front and rear air lockers if at all possible. I don't try to get into bad spots, but when you do, lockers are amazing.

Aluminum front bumper and bull bar, powder coated black, mounting a 9000 lb. winch.

Perhaps a snorkel, not necessarily for river crossings, but to move the air intake up higher to clear dust.

I'm hoping that the Pik-Up will get the Australian aftermarket guys going so that they offer some of these things for the Mahindra trucks.

O.K., so why put all these upgrades on such an economy truck? Well, I've put them on much more expensive trucks, and have some of these mods on two different vehicles right now. I hope to replace my mountain Jeep and my 1 ton truck with a single vehicle that gets better mileage than either! Can't wait!

Has anyone stumbled across any sites offering aftermarket bits for the Pik-Up yet? Please post links if you have, thanks!

I want mine as stock as possible. It's just gonna be for hauling stuff. So maybe throw some Line-x in the bed and get some dark window tinting to keep the insides cooler and I'll be good to go. Oh, and a good hitch for towing too.

All I'd want is a 7 foot bed...
I'd settle for 6 feet. The one on there is way too short.
