SJs used to have a centre dash mounted inclinometer & tilt meter made by Suzuki.
Vitaras even had one to fit in that little coin holder indent in the top of the dash... made by Suzuki.
They were both like hen's teeth. I only ever saw 1 of each.

What about the Jimny ? Does one exist for them ? With a little picture of the Jimny ?

Looking for a nice clean and straight LHD Jimny..... Not any more.
Got one that seems to have been magnatized and driven through the "Big Jimny Bits" parts stores too quickly so it missed a few items.

You don't need a meter to tell you things are getting hairy and if your looking at that your not looking for the big hole one wheel is about to fall in and cause you to go over!

So in short - don't bother unless you have a thing for them!

I'm sad i have one :blush:

This is the closest i could get - www.johncraddockltd.co.uk/products/jc3_l...fibre_appearance.php - looks ok, but as kirkynut said theyre useless - accelerating and braking normally gets mine rocking like a north sea trawler in a gale :-)

I suppose I do have one but it's my arse going 50p - 5p. When it starts to do that it's over enough!

The best version though is an experienced spotter outside the car!

They take you further than your arse let's you but not too far!

I always wanted a genuine Suzuki one.... just because.
I was just curious if one existed for the Jimny with a little pic of the Jimny in it.

A few years ago Fiat did an accessory like that. There is one on eBay and some other from China.

Do it right - use Hammerite

My Jimny had an aftermarket inclinometer fitted when I bought it. I confirm everything that Kirkynut wrote.

They are practically useless and potentially even dangerous (if you focus on monitoring the inclinometer instead on the actual situation when the situation gets dangerous).
So I removed it.

But I do remember that every passenger used to ask me with awe and enthusiasm "what the heck is that!?" while I used to have it in the car.

I'm not really looking for it as a gauge but more a Jimny thing.
By chance I found a photo of a Genuine Suzuki JDM Samurai Inclinometer. Note the detailed Samurai pics.
I want to know if there's a similar one specifically for the Jimny.

Here's a closer shot of an auction I missed out on because I don't check eBay enough. I also thought $250 was a lot but regretting it now.
