Very cool. But I agree with your comments on not wanting to start modifications again from scratch.

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

Good review.

It seems disturbingly rusty already around the trailing arms and axle cases :ohmy:

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

Now I've been to see one, I can't work out what they did to get rid of the space behind the seats. Mine has enough room for shopping as it fits on top of the tool tray, the new one is noticeably shorter.

The white doesn't look too bad in the flesh tbh, but I ordered the silver as photos show it as a pale grey.


Oh, and the power steering must be a motor on the column, as there is a plain steering box under the bonnet.

Has anyone seen technical documentation on the new Jimny yet?

I`m just wondering if they have upgraded any known weak points, like wheelbearing size front/rear, king pins etc..

If you get the opportunity to drive a new model Jimny one off-road or even down a muddy track, I'd be very interested in learning how it compares to the previous version - including selection/operation of the 4WD system.
