Thanks that's really interesting I'll look into those soon.

Great to see the correct terminology too, LJK Setright would be proud.

Hi.

Before I could fully read this post I thought the title was accidently phrased the other way around. "Bad back caused by four concrete post solved by Jimny" Ha-ha.
So instead of considering correct manual handling technics I suggest to consider your safety in case of an accident! If I was you I would remove the unsecured concrete blocks and look for alternatives (HD steel rear bumper?)

Just an idea.

Regards. Gabor

I found a set of Recaros out of an Ignis Sport to make a world of difference in a Jimny, the stock seats are awful with no lumbar support, Jimny does take weight well, maybe a set of softer (adjustable) dampers would work well, provided you remember to adjust them before letting your fat mates jump in the back.

Any pictures of that yellow Carry in your profile picture? It looks great.
