Does it really do that? I doubt it knows what the speed of the wheel is by the ABS sensor, unless its tapping into some sort of traction control system maybe?

The standard jimny has a speedo sensor on the rear output of the transfer box, likley the same for you Lambert? I would imagine the device is simply reading the ECU data from that sensor? Is there a correction option in the menu for that? I think Dave (S200KYS) has one of these and thats mainly what he wanted it for...

Yeah it does have the correction facility but just using the raw data it's reading correct to the gps not the cluster and i know for a fact that even though my bfg's are 205's they are noticeably taller than the duelers it came with. Hence wondering if the abs and propshaft sensors are correlated in some way?

Maybe you've found the sweet spot with the tire's it should have came fitted with in the first place :laugh:

You've realised my dream of green with old english white/cream wheels!

I'm a bit behind I know but I don't get on here as often as I'd like these days.

It looks every bit as good as I'd envisaged it would and you've done a grand job!

I think that if I were to buy another Jimny I would get one in this green and paint the wheels the same colour as you have with a Trailmaster 2" Comfort lift kit and a Jimny Bits hidden winch mount behind the front bumper housing a Goodwinch 9500lb winch. It would wear 215/75/15 BFG mud terrains on standard gearing. It would also have a full length roof rack like Dave Jones has, as they sell in Jimny Bits too. That would make me happy to have as a daily.

Cheers kirkynut

It was your comment that got me thinking.

I'm pleased with the combination. I have had several comments from passers-by in car parks about the combo as well.

I noticed the passenger wiper arm moving about at the base whilst driving in the rain yesterday.

It was the usual suspect - wear in the nylon bush. So rotated it 180 degrees as suggested elsewhere on this great site and problem sorted for now.

HI All

Having started a new business project with my old business partner I find that Wee Jimmy has been sat alone in the drive and has only done 8 miles in 6 weeks.

Given the scope of the business project and the time I am putting in, I think it would be best to let someone else enjoy the Jimny now that it has been made ready to play.

So if anyone has any interest or knows of someone who is interested please let me know. Ideally, I would like to recoup what I have put in if possible meaning I want £2700. That may be too rich for some. I'll probably stick it on eBay and a few other places in any case.

You have all been ace, and no doubt I'll be back on here in the future once things settle down. I do fancy one of the new Jimny's in the future.

Sold last night - to a nice man from Halifax. Hope he will enjoy Wee Jimmy as much as I did.

That's a little sad to see you go your separate ways. I just read through this whole fascinating thread. I just wish I understood it as much as I enjoyed it, LOL.

Best to you and to the new owner.

And whether the blood be highland, lowland or no,
And whether the skin be black or white as the snow,
Of kith and of kin we are one, be it right, be it wrong,
As long as our hearts beat true to the lilt of a song.
