Hi, so continuing to check over my new (to me) Gen 3 Jimny and I need to make modifications declaration to insurance and I want to make sure I am accurate.

Garage I bought it from said it had been lifted, this was not material in my purchase decision, so I don’t care really either way, so now I am looking over the underside and comparing to the various images and articles on here I can see no evidence one way or another.

Please can anybody suggest a measurement I could take or something I could check so that I know for sure one way or another?

Thanks.

They did not say, but in truth they had no real knowledge of the car.

How can I check?

Have a drive round and find another one park next to it and compare
Or jump out with tape a measure and measure from ground to underside of door mirror/door handle

You need someone to measure the length of their shock absorbers across the centre of the bolts.

If is definitely lifted, on my gen3 I could just get the width of my hand between the standard tyre and rear wheelarch on the drivers side, and about an inch extra on the passenger, so there would be about 4 1/2" between wheelarch and wheel. Yours looks loads more.

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

Thanks all so much for the info and help, mine is a 6 inch gap between chunky tyre and arch, so as Mike suggested looks like 2 inch lift.

Very happy with that.

2" because it looks to still have standard everything else (including brake lines - might want to check that they are long enough ;-) )
