This is my Jimny I bought it in November 18 after a car accident wrote off my Cooper. It was only meant to be a cheap daily for a year that’s become a run away build

Got rid of the front number plate as it cracked and this looks way better and I also got a 42” led light bar but I don’t like it way up that high so I’ll have to look for better brackets.

So with all the upgrades I’m still not competitive, I just cannot get up the hills despite the chunky tyres I run out of traction as the tyres fill with mud and the wheels spin. Time to spend more money, oh and a tree jumped out behind me as I ran out of traction and I bashed the jeep.
