Well done!

Just be careful with the Cv's with the extra grip and diameter.

Yes Kirky i am sure the cv's will snap
I have some funds to buy the HD cv's and shafts.
Firstly i would like to get them working on my 2" lift :woohoo:
I do have some Honda crv springs ready to fit,but then i need new+3" shocks new bump stops.
So this extra cost means no trial gear HD stuff.
I have black front arches i could fit and cut up for clearance :)

What gearing do you have mate? I've re-read your thread and can't see reference to a Rocklobster or Trailgear transfer box reduction gears but that was whilst being jumped on by a 3 year old semi-professional wrestler!

If you've not reduced your gearing yet you'll likely not have enough torque to bust a CV, but your clutch will be suffering!

It's all money, money, money!

New cat day
Going to remove the heat shield before I fit it
Because it spends more time off road
It will only fill with mud and reduce it's life

Late arrival. I just came over here from the link on your new tyres and read through the whole thread. Impressive & informative, especially on clearance re body mounts with different radius arms. Also, CRV springs... Hmmmm.

If I'd have been here at the beginning when you were asking for opinions on colour themes, with your name I'd have Union Jacked it.. Blue plastic trim & bumpers, White roof, mirrors & wheels. Union Jack bonnet. Possibly with the cartoon character somewhere....
Not knocking the red & black, hell, my Suzukis have been Noddy red and yellow themed.
I have a blue soft top that a want a Creative FX Union Jack wrap like they did to the Micras.... When I have money. British pride! Which we see all too little of these days.

Looking for a nice clean and straight LHD Jimny..... Not any more.
Got one that seems to have been magnatized and driven through the "Big Jimny Bits" parts stores too quickly so it missed a few items.

Keithy just fitted 195/80/16's clearance shouldn't be an issue now
Just for reference it drives like shit much better with the 225/75/16 BFG KM2's
But i need the grip for trials
Rabid Rhino Wrapping my Jimny would just be a waste of money you can't see the damage in pics
It's got scratches down the full length and dented......more added with every outing :laugh:

Jack.... I've been watching your RTV trail videos.... constantly hearing all your new scratches on that wonderful thick Suzuki paint job so yes a wrap would be a waste on yours but I think a giant Union Jack on the bonnet or roof would be apt & patriotic.
My first SJ had a small plastic rhino stuck on the bonnet.....
