Thanks Nathan ;)

Well, today, having spent the weekend with the rest of our little group in the Lake District greenlaning, I was keen to get back to work and get the Jimny ready for a return to the Lakes for a one-day-trip on the 20th of July, so I cracked on on my "day" off (10am -3pm)...

I started by trimming the ORA-made hoop to size -





Now a perfect fit... I hope to weld it up on Sunday and then pass it to my powdercoaters to do it in black next week...

I then bolted the winch to the bumper and respooled the synthetic rope back on -



Before fitting the winch bumper back onto the Jimny, proplerly fixed in place now -



And looking awesome! (especially with the new' plate!)

I then fitted a JimnyBits ABS-suitable second battery tray -



And an Odyssey PC1200 battery supplied by the ORA -



Just need to finish the T-Max (JimnyBits) split charge system and winch wiring / isolator switches / remote in-cab remotes, and then move back onto the rockcrawler box.... more soon!

looking good Dave

Where are you going to attach the winch hook to as I can't see any recovery points big enough on your new bumper?

Thanks Darth' ;)

There's recovery points left and right at the bottom of the main middle section, on the same level as the front drainage holes... I just couldn't find a spare shackle yesterday... they're in the shed somewhere... I'll get one and photograph later ;)

Phase one will be done soon (i.e. Suspension, Redacted Rocklobster, rear air ARB Locker / compressor, front winch in ORA bumper and ORA roll hoop, CB, my waterproof bucket seat), as I want it ready for the next Lakes (day) trip on the 20th of July... still got plans for a lot more after that (rear winch and ORA rear bumper / rookrack-tree-sliders / front LSD and 26 spline shafts)

Hopefully not (rolling on the 20th) but will have the ORA hoop powdercoated and in by then - just-in-case! ;)

Spent a few hours yesterday starting to wire up the split-charge system to the Odyssey winch battery... hoping for most of the day working on the Jimny tomorrow... photos then ;)
