22/09/09 - National 4x4 Show 2009

We travelled up to the National 4x4 show today, this was held a Donnington Park near Derby so was just under a 2 hour trip for us.

It was a pleasant day out and we managed to catch up with a number of people. Saying hi for the first time to Andy, Richard Wattam, Dave (Bits4Vits) and Richie, all from Shropshire Suzuki.

Jimnys featured on a number of stands.....

Over on Rhinorays stand was a very smart black Jimny.

As you can see this has a very smart RhinoRay style front bumper with a nice wrap around piece which my KAP bumper doesn't have. This Jimny is running on 31" tyres and what looks to be a 3" spring lift with perhaps a body lift sneaking in somewhere.

 Not to be outdone Rob Butler at the Offroad Armoury brought along his Jimny with some new prototype parts.

 

Again this winch bumper has a nice wrap around on the ends. It is also a "bolt-on" bumper which is a bit unusual in a Jimny, although the bolt-on is achieved by welding a couple of mounts to the Jimny chassis and then bolting the bulk of the bumper to the ends. This Jimny is sporting a 4.5" spring lift, 2" body lift and 33"tyres. Hidden underneath is an SJ Rocklobster conversion.

And here is the new rear bumper as well with integrated light mounts and again a nice wrap around at the edges to cover the expose bases of the rear wings.

Outside there were some unusal vehicles.

 

And then.....hidden in the back of the car park was this little gem that we have seen on this site before.

It is Steves Jimny which he sold on earlier this year - so who owns it now?
