Bad old roads where we live and the Jimny doesn't do well in the old crash test. I think I will be building some kind of bumper and recovery points. If I EVER BUY ONE.

Steel bumpers are not good in a crash. They transfer energy into the car instead of absorbing it. The Jimny is already fairly poor at absorbing energy to start with with much of it being transferred to the occupants. I would sooner walk away from a crumpled write off than have to be stretchered away from something that looks fairly visually intact.
