Looks great!

I bought a tarp with rods and ties and stuff at Biltema or Jula years ago. I have brough it to the last three meets, but never got time to put it up.
Too much suzuki-talk, and nice weather. We usually stand around with our heads in or under someones car, or try to help someone with their last adjustments. And fluids to be consumed... :)

And there is a large hut with a center fireplace and lots of fire wood so might never need it :)

Only three weeks to go now, feel like a kid the days before Christmas.

Took the lock right out today, tired of driving with 100% locked all the time and with winter coming on mud terrain tires it would go straight ahead in all turns. It feels like the drivetrain gets to much beatinh with it. As a daily drive its not optimal, works like hell in terrain tho!
Havent done much else with the car lately, just driven it. Only thing it really needs is heavy duty tow points

That's always been my concern with an un locking diff that road driving and especially on winter roads would be almost impossible to live with on a daily driver.

Just to be able to run completly open diff in the snow, like sidehill situations, is reason enough to stay away from lockrite and even lsd diffs.. Lockers is the way to go for sure.

Ive got the JB towpoints up front on my winch plate, and they sem very solid! I also got the rear ones, but havent installed them yet due to conflict with my towbar mount... Not sure how to do that one. But the towbar mount is most likely great for towpoint anyway.. (the mount, not the towbar).

Yes i think i’ll go for JB points, front and rear. I took the towbar off so now i dont have any tow points :lol: the original one are a joke

Never thought about making them myself, but I got plenty of steel at work so why not!

After driving in 110km/h for 5 minutes my exhaust collapsed. Remember this happening to my blue Jimny also! Ordered the rear muffler and the pipe that goes to the middle of the car. It was only the muffler that had come off but i bought the pipe aswell since the rest of the exhaust is new also.. when i had the car in the air i saw the front right hub started leaking. Changed that side a year ago, so i ordered a seal kit for that side and a complete kit for the left side since i got a feeling that one will fail anytime also.

Installed some new stereo yesterday also. Only had a dab radio until now without cd, and i like good quality sound (vinyl cd) so i bought one with cd! And a better front set speakers
