My Gen3 Jimny is so big and heavy it does not stop well. Whilst it does pass the MOT, I think the brakes need sorting so I have updated it to vented disks. Here is a quick video

With the Gen4 being a new Jimny and also being discontinued (hopefully temporary) in Europe, properly designed Snorkels are hard to come by.

One of the most common upgrades people want to do to their Jimny is to lift it.

We like the look of a slightly perkier Jimny, not a soaring lift but just enough to make it look a bit more purposeful.

I sell the Trailmaster 50mm lift kit in the BigJimny store which gives that extra lift without going too far. In particular, it does not require the spacers on the front cross member that other kits seem to need.

I have videoed the experience and the videos are below......
