Hi all,

I've replied to a couple of topics on here, but never actually introduced myself. So - I'm Hannah, and I bought my first Jimny ("Rocky") just over a year ago. I absolutely love him!

I have no mechanical knowledge what-so-ever, but with the help of my wonderful boyfriend (Harry - he has a modified Jimny and TD5 Defender) and his Dad, I'm hopefully going to learn a few things along the way!
Rocky was completely standard when I got him - since, I've added (with the massive help of Harry and his Dad), a chrome grill (because bling seemed to suit), larger tyres (215/75/15 General Grabbers), spot lights (which will be replaced with LEDs and wired up) and a CB. I'm also hoping to update the stereo.

I have absolutely no experience of off-roading at all, apart from Harry letting me drive his defender down the occasional greenlane (he trusts me too much). As Rocky is my daily driver, which includes motorway driving to and from uni, as well as the fact that I don't have the funds to put anything right if I mess up, he'll probably be more of a 'poser' than an actual off-roader! I may venture to a tame greenlane. We'll see.

Many of you are possibly questioning my choice of car based on this- my answer would purely be that I love them. I grew up around a Land Rover Series 3 and a SJ - and never wanted anything different! Plus - I don't feel the need to go fast anywhere ;)

So - although I won't be able to contribute much on here, I thought I'd show off my wee Rocky anyway, and I love looking at all the fine machines all you guys are building! Maybe one day ;)

So, here's a photo of my Rocky:


Cheers!

You'll be surprised at how far the Jimny can go on the setup you have him at now and how much less it breaks bits doing it compared with the defender :) it does look like a nice Jimny tho

I think all Harry needs is a snorkel and he's ready for anything!

Yeah, many have tried to convince me that it's very capable already, and I'm sure it is... but with me as the pilot, maybe not so much! It passed the MOT with no advisories in November (after a lot of work from my boyfriend and his Dad, including replacement of leaky shock absorbers), so I'm very pleased with it! The only 'fault' is a ABS light which likes to come on, but we think it's due to a faulty connection somewhere, or a damaged sensor.

Hahah Harry is my boyfriend! Rocky is the Jimny ;) I did wonder about a snorkel, but was thinking that it may look a bit silly having one on a near-standard Jimny?

For what it's worth mine is near standard with a snorkel and I've had the last laugh this week when all the roads out of my town were flooded, water was over the headlights and i just sailed through excuse the pun
