A Vitara on 35"s? Surely not...



On my drive...



At Tom's Farm (RIP Tom)... where it sheared all six 12.9 grade bolts holding a free wheel hub on whilst rescuing a stricken (delayed!) Landy... Rob Storr Crawler Box + twin LSDS + Centerforce Dual Friction (on/off!) Clutch... something had to give... LOL :whistle:

Dave ;)

All i can say, is that was an honour and sheer pleasure in having "Paid n Played" and Green Laned with an absolute beast of a Vitara!!

Jalapeño, IISY?

Spent yesterday fabbing...

First, one of these...



WTF is that then? ;)



Ah... wiring bridge for the switches, wanderlead plug, split-charge relay, and 6-way fusebox...!



It mounts with two self-tappers into the bulkhead, and the other end is neatly (ORA) tabbed to the radiator mount...

The holes every 3" apart along the edges are to ty-wrap all the wires and cables neatly underneath... just needs powdercoating... with...



...the ORA rollhoop I've now finished off... it came in flat-pack form if you remember from further back in the thread... So it was just a matter of me assembling it in the back of the Jimny -







Tacking it together once I'd got the bits cut to length, and then fight to get it out through the passenger door -



And then MIG weld it up in the garage -



And add the ARB compressor bracket -



Currently thinking of anything else that needs adding before it goes for powdercoating...

THANKS to the ORA once again! B)

That compressor mount is a smart idea.

If it were me, I'd add a few small lugs at strategic places around the cage to hook straps and things onto.

With the compressor on loose for testing -



Here if anyone wants one -

www.offroad-armory.com/store/index.php?r...82_88&product_id=407

Yes, will weld some lugs here and there...

Must see how much rear vision is lost with a 235/75 on the rear door... the spare might have to come inside...

What about a fire exstinguisher bracket, And as for rear view i've got a 31 inch tyre on the back and can't see a lot, Maybe that would explain why i reversed into a tree yesterday.

It's been fettled just a tad.

Hmmm... I was afraid of that...

The gap between the roll hoop stays isn't wide enough to have a 29" lying down (it's 27")... so I might have to have it standing up and strapped in on the driver's side (for visibility) and have a couple of boxes next to it for recovery gear and tools...

Will have to put the hoop back in on Wednesday and have a fiddle round...

Fire extinguisher is a wise precaution, thanks Jezz ;) , I'll add a mount for that too...

1. Deflate tyre
2. Wedge deflated tyre between stays
3. Inflate tyre.

Da dah! Tyre held securely without straps!
