In the spirit of the Ronny Dahl YouTube videos I thought this would be a fun question to ask on here. What are your top 3 favourite mods that you have done to your Jimny, and why?

Also, bonus question, what modification (if any) do you most regret?

1) AVM Manual Hubs - 2WD sucks
2) 215/75 AT3s - ground clearance
3) 2" Lift (Trailmaster) - clearance and comfort

In terms of regret for me, it's probably my stainless exhaust. It made sense at the time, as my old one had rusted through, and it sounds very cool, but it's just a bit too loud on longer journeys. Great quality and good fun though.

2004 Jimny Mode; General Grabber AT3s (215/75/R15); Trailmaster 2" Lift; Jimnybits Snorkel; Jimnybits Front and Rear Recovery Points; Osram Nightbreakers; Suntop Roof Rack; AVM Manual Hubs; ORA Radius Arm Guards; Stainless Steel Exhaust System.

1, 2" lift and 215/75/15 tires because it looks right.
2. Transfer box guard for piece of mind when belly down.
3, HD Transfer box mounts as the original ones are weak.

Regrets would be fitting Pro-comp dampers. Work well off road but to hard on road.

Jimny JLX Facelift model 2005.
Kashmir Blue Pearl Metallic.
2" lift with Procomp Es1000 shocks.
Diff and transfer box guards from Jimnybits.
215/75/15 General Grabber x3's
and a driver called Allan (1066Boy)

Best mod has to be the bfg urban terrain tyres, exceptional dry grip and not particularly bothered about snow and mud.
Next but equal are the avm hubs, reliable and simple with the benefit of 2x4 lo.
Then rear seat removal, so practical for working and quite astounding what will fit in the back.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

1. Rear brake conversion
2. 2013 Facelift
3. Upgraded stereo

Regrets - Facelift, as it's not all the same colour, I still need some pieces to complete it, and it was bloody expensive :woohoo:

At least it give me an excuse for a lick of paint in the future...

1. Tyres.
2.. Rear seat removal.
3. Removal of the Dealer sticker from the rear window!

Regret: Buying a steering damper. The steering wheel won't centralise on it's own.

2012 Jimny Black. Totally standard (except for rear seat removal mod).

1. M16a engine swap for the low end torque
2. Disabling the annoying beeper in the dashboard.
3. BF MT 235-75-15 replacing lousy slippy nexen mud tires

Runner up: New stereo and speakers, caster correction bushings for the 2" lift and most likely my upcoming low transfer gears.

Regret: Buying M16 engine with too high compression rate giving me a headache for the ignition pinging and lack of high end power.

2005 Jimny M16A VVT
