Holy Shift Turns Suzuki’s Omni Into A Bespoke Adventure-Ready Battle Van

Though the India-based outfit typically focuses on motorcycle projects, Holy Shift Garage is equally capable when its comes to four-wheeled builds, as the outfit recently demonstrated with the “Gymni” — a rugged, combat-ready van based on a Suzuki Omni.

Once torn down a rolling chassis, the HS crew proceeded to swap out the stock rear axle for a beefier unit plucked from a Suzuki Samurai. The shop also turned to the Samurai when it came time to swap out the Omni’s notoriously-underpowered engine, replacing the lackluster triple (from the Indian-spec Omni) with the Samurai’s liter-sized four-cylinder mill, giving the project an extra cylinder to work with, along with some added displacement. Cut-out wheel arches fitted with bespoke step pieces now open up space for a noticeably larger set of Maxxis all-terrain tires decorated in custom “HOLY SHIFT” side-wall prints and in place of the original windows are a set of slotted metal panels. Wrapped around the ruggedized Suzuki is a full external roll-cage equipped with a massive skid-plate, sliders, jerry-can rack, a trellis-style roof rack, a folding rear rack to carry a motorcycle, a bevy of custom diamond-plate panels, and half-a-dozen forward-facing auxiliary lights supplementing the build’s new LED headlights.
