14/01/09 - Rocklobster conversion - Episode 2

I am gradually working through this conversion. As it modifies a transfer box from an old SJ most of the work at present is with the realm of the SJ rather than the Jimny. The main Jimny work will come when I fit the Transfer Box.

When I had an SJ I wrote a guide to doing the work - which is HERE. I am using this guide but I have found a couple of areas that need updating so look out for a revised edition at some point which wil include the details for fitting it to a Jimny......

We recently visited Hogmoor which is a fantastic site, so the club will be booking it for a trial next year. The visit to Hogmoor showed that the standard Transfer Box (if you remember I am back on a standard box after the chain stretched in my Low Ratio Gearset Jimny Transfer Box) is not up to the job so I am starting to build up an SJ410 RockLobster ready to fit. I am producing the write up for this and hopefully this will appear in the new year.....

24/10/08 - Cutting the wheelarches

In order to fit larger wheels you have to cut the wheel arches to stop them rubbing. My Jimny was already modified so I have not had to cut the wheelarches myself. However a number of people have asked how it is done and what needs to be done. Therefore I have put photos of mine below to show what has been done. The pictures are clickable to make them larger.......
