T-case Doubler: Vitara & Samurai in a '98 Jimny with 2" Body Lift. Will it fit ?

10 Jan 2018 03:08 #188208 by Rabid Rhino
I have an OTT Kicker 3. Not as good as a RockWatt unit with the breather hoses but I've had it for ages.
I'd like to put it in my 1998 Jimny that I just bought which already has a 2" body lift to hopefully clear the Vitara Bell-housing.

I spoke to RockWatt who said the doubler does go in & gave me a list of parts needed, however I'm looking for people here who have done it and ideally some build pics or even a thread link, as I'd like to see how it fits etc. I searched but didn't find any actually completed.

RW told me to take advantage of swapping out the Jimny transmission for the Vitara Gearbox & Bellhousing and also swap out the 1300 engine for a 1,600cc Baleno engine as the 4 bolts on the engine block match up perfectly with the 4 of the Vitara bellhouse. So no adapter or additional drilling required.
RW said I'll have to swap over the following parts from the 1,300 Jimny engine to the 1,600 Baleno motor.......
Injectors, Sump, Drive Belt Tensioner.
Any thing else needs swapping over ?
What starter motor would be needed ?

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.
