Hi Everyone,

I've been lurking around the forum and thought it's was time to post something. So, Hi everyone!

I've been recently out offroading in the new Jimny and..... wow! I love it! This thing is an absolute monster offroad. It's been surprising everyone who has seen it in action. For fairly being un-modified, it was keeping up with the big boys.

Here's a couple of videos from our adventures. (please note they are crappy quality and taken on a phone.)

Enjoy!

P.S. I been learning a lot about taking the new Jimny offroad. I'm happy to try and answer any questions anyone has.

This I wish I hadn't done....

Be aware, Jimny's don't float, they leak....

Also, remember to put your windows up when playing in the mud...

Many hours were taken to clean this up.

How deep was the water you went through to flood the inside like that? Just above the sill or halfway up the door?

It wasn't so much the height as the angle. I nosed into a mud pit to check it out and quickly decided it was way too deep. I reversed up a bit, but couldn't get fully out. I called for the snatch strap.

While waiting, I didn't notice that the bottom front corner of the driver door was just slightly submerged. I also didn't realise I had any water inside until I got out of the hole.

That said, I managed to lift, wash and dry the carpet and chassis and spent ages getting the mud out of places, but it looks new again.

The bonus of Jimny's is a conveniently located drain plug.. :)

That said, I won't be doing that again...probably.
