Stay safe pal.

Having had a glass this evening, it is time to reflect a little and maybe embarrass myself a tad too.

Martin Lines - The chap who runs the forum, this forum, a place where I have felt welcome and comfortable.

jackonlyjack - The first chap I had a ride out with.

Maverick - Runs the Jimny Jaunts laning group, a guru in the lanes, top bloke.

Dave Jones - Mavericks right hand man and the nicest bloke who's held a steering wheel.

Riccy - Lives in my bestest place (Cumbria) and always up for a trip out. Cost me plenty because of envy.....

James Priestley - Built a dream car and sold me a few bits......

So many from the forum, we've met, laned, laughed... and plenty of others who I have just had a chat with.....

Jimnybits has been a special place for me, I needed something and you lot came along....

I'm better for having known you, wether that was virtual or in the flesh makes no difference.

Thank you all xx

What to do with the back end ?

Having decided to go loud, fit a snorkel and chop the back end of the car off. I still can't make my mind up wether to put a pick up back on it or a tray back...

This may make no sense..........but makes perfect sense in my head
So here goes
double tray
Flat plate just above chassis but made removable.....for access to top shock mounts ect
On top of that fit spare wheel slightly poking out the back.........just in case you reverse into anything.......bounce
Then over the top of spare wheel a flat load space.....like picture 1 without the wheel
Some really short mud guards just up back of body to stop any mud/gravel from causing damage
ALL makes sense in my head :laugh:

Just a small box over a chassis rails to put a few bits of recovery equipment into and mud guards attached to the axle. Kinda like the back of a jcb fastrack. And kinda like Dave's buggy no front wings and trim the bonnet and have mud guards on the front hubs too, like a scammel pioneer.

One of the last 200ish of the gen3s, probably.
