07/09/08 - Winch mounting in standard bumper

These are the pictures that many of you have been waiting for! My Jimny has a dedicated winch bumper but many owners want a more discrete and tidy installation.

Clinton has installed a winch within his bumper and it looks fantastic. Kevant has sent in copies of the pictures and I hope Clinton does not mind them being published here as this is one of the most popular questions in the Jimny world.

29/8/08 - Brake efficiency

One of the first MOT problems was poor braking efficiency at the rear, I could not sort this one out. However a mention on the difflock site had Zukijimny mentioning bias valve.The Jimny has a variable (automatically adjusts with load) bias valve location above the rear axle.It is mounted to the body and attached by a spring to the axle. Of course, for the MOT the car was emptied, including removing the spare wheel from the back door (because of concerns about obscuring the rear lights) meaning there was no weight (no seats, no tools, no carpets - nothing). With no weight in the back the bias valve is basically switching the rear brakes almost totally off. There is an adjustment on the valve but mine was almost fully adjusted already due to the spring lift. Therefore I loaded up the back with the spare wheel and tools - and passed!Martin

The problem with the front wheel bearings is that they are hidden behind a special lock nut.....

16/08/08 - Baz's Jimny

I met up with Baz today at the Berkshire 4x4 show. As you can see below he has a smart looking Jimny under construction. Currenty it is running 31" Insa Turbo Sahara tyres based on a couple of inches lift. He has cut away the bumper to improve its clearance and underneath the back is a nice sounding Cherry Bomb Exhaust.
