I am not so sure about the color, never been a flashy person I guess. Here was an interesting video showing the off-road capabilities of the Mahindra, even though the guys were being a litle timid with the truck.

TxBlackKnight,

The lack of capability in that video kinda worries me. I don't know if it was the truck or the drivers' fault, but it does make me think twice about wasting my cash on a 4wd if it can't do the job.
May have to stick with 2wd.

Here's a video with me and a bunch of friends playing at Barnwell mountain in East Texas from '03. I'm in my Rubicon.

I have a cut down 1 ton sitting on 42" iroks locked on both ends that I rock crawl with so I have a little knowledge of this.

Video and pics will fool you every time.

And a locked rear and an open front are worthless in that type situation.

Ok thats my knowledge.

The truck had street tires also.

Very nice.

To prove my point on cameras not giving the full effect, where the silver jeep was sliding all four Im sure there was alot of pucker goin on. Am I correct?

I blame driver ability for the most part,but the rig wasnt set up for off roading either.

It was the start of a sixty-five degree/200 foot slope, in the rain, with a pair of offset 2-3' or better ledges midway down.

The pucker factor was way the hell up there the very moment I realized my brakes didn't mean squat.
Good thing that '03 Rubidoo is a billy goat.

Yep, not good in an off road sense. Those guys could try lowering air pressure but the thing was poorly designed for off-road. The 4x4 option is almost worthless. Bet it doesn't have limited slip differential either. Here's a look at its suspension shortcomings:
