JImny owner since 2015. Been loving the Katana/Samurai since childhood days. Finally get to own one. I live in China currently, and JImny is highly regarded in the off road community here, and has a small but steady cult following.

When I first got it in 2015. fitted with Cooper ATS 215/70R15


What it looks like now.






Mods done:
Skopri Aluminum alloy front bumper with IPF lamps
Skopri Aluminum alloy roof rack
Ironman 2" suspension lift kit (plus 1.5"spring spacer in the rear)
Wildcat 6000lb winch
Giti AT100 LT215/75R15 tires (used to use Comforser CF3000 MT)
Starworks rear bumper with spare-tire rack
ARB airlocker in the rear axle
Whitelk 4.56 differential gears (front and back)
Manganese Steel transfer box guard, rear shock skid guards, radius arm mounting guards
Starworks axle diff guards
Steel side rock/tree sliders
and other minor additions...

Thats me having fun at a local rock mountain area popular with offroaders.


WIth the new Giti AT100 tires (Same company that manufactures GT Radial, Sold under Giti brand in the local China market)

Looks really nice!

I looked at similar bumpers online and prices are good but shipping to Europe costs from 800$ to 2k $ :O

Thank you Mraz. There are quite a number of manufacturers in China who manufacture aftermarket parts for the Jimny. And yes, shipping via courier is a killer because the items are huge and heavy. The shipping itself will cost more than the products themselves. I know some of the manufacturers and apparently they do ship out their products to distributors worldwide. Last I heard Starworks ship a lot to Russia. And they ship in bulk via containers so the cost is a lot lower. Skopri is a much smaller factory and I know the owner as well. So far they supply to the local China market at the moment.
