Picked these up in the mail today :silly:

After some really good reviews, I bought a pair of CREE 28w, 6 LED foggies. I really went this these over typical halogens because they'll draw a lot less power.

XScorpion digital battery terminal

And red skyjacker shock boots for the rear...

Added a 3" intake with a new jdm filter and a 2" flex tube to channel air from the front grill... I'm surprised that I can actually feel the difference in low to mid rpm, which is where I do most of my driving

Before with stock tubes



After....

Thank you all.


Today I added these WOLO 402 air horns... Bloody hell I'm impressed they are at the very least, twice as loud as the oem unit and the don't sound toy-like as with other electric air horns, the sound like a trains horn. This is just temporary, I plan on doing a train horn build :silly:

Looks good B)
I have train horns on my Pajero. Are you going to fit some Nathans or Leslies?? Biggest restriction is where to put the air tank, compressor and horns on a Jimny. I like the use of my now empty rear seat space so for me that's out of the question. The only place for the actual horns is either on the roof or cut away the floor and mount the trumpets facing down and out; a good place would be that dreadful jack space. You aim them down to the tarmac to get a good sound spread; it radiates around that way. If they go through the floor the tank and compressor could sit in the back.

Do it right - use Hammerite
When the blue light is flashing I am kidding.

Yup.. I'm gathering parts to build a custom kit as we speak.... I'm actually still trying to decide where to put the horns and tank as well... Awesome suggestions though. Give me some more details on your setup
