Mahindra MM550XD - NGCS (New Generation Chassis & Suspension)




I have searched for this vehicle across the length and breadth of India and finally last week found this about a mile from where I live.

I decided to buy the Jeep. It is a 2004 model with BOX-Section Chassis, DANA 44 LSD Axles. The Transmission is KMT90 with Dana Spicer. I am looking forward to drive this JEEP everyday.

I salute the American inventors for the Technology and help given to Mahindra & Mahindra, India.

Larry's Comment: That's a beauty Sateesh! I really like the way Mahindra & Mahindra has preserved much of the basic lines of the American CJ but with improved technology.

Newer Version of Indian Army Jeep
by: Anonymous

The latest version of the White Jeep put up by Sateesh has a 5 Speed New Generation Transmission (Reportedly Not Preferred by the Army) and a Borg Warner Transfer Case.

The Alignment of Differentials on Post 2006 is on the LHS if seeing from the back, whereas Pre-2006 is on the RHS. RHS Differential Offset indicates a 4 Spd. Transmission.

Exceptional buy !!

This is junk box

This jeep sucks....I've seen this one up close and it's at ram koti hyderabad...there's no connecting rod for the 4wd gear box and body is all rusted out and the paint job is done on the rust to cover the true condition of the vehicle...and the cost is 2,75,'s a mahindra engine not a peugeot one...lads please don't buy this junk but if you really wanna buy it then it's worth just 1,30,000 and less not even a single penny more than that...

I do not know what you saw in Ramkoti. Maybe some
piece of crap. The NGCS 550 even sold by weight will cross Rs. 2,00,000 in the Army Auction itself. Know your facts before you comment.

Info required on MM 550
by: pskanp

Hello friends,

I'm a fan of jeeps. I wanted to know:

1) from where we can buy MM550 (what is the difference between 550 & 540?)

2) is it possible to put a hardtop on it and 2 front facing seats in the back row and install an Air Conditioner also in the jeep?

3) I live in Kanpur U.P., so will there be any problems in servicing..?

I was considering Thar, but somehow I feel that since I will use jeep only for off roading tours, it will be good for me to save money on it.

Thank You...

NGCS or the box type chassis never came with LSD. I see from the picture that it is FFRA and not LSD axles as quoted. Please correct me if I am wrong

I am a hard core fan of mm550, and I own one as well. Mine is 2002. Would you mind me coming and seeing your Jeep? I got my 550 fixed with A/C. I put it up for sale for 3.8 lakhs.
