Treated myself to another set of 6T axle stands. I've had a set for years and they are great, but now with the addition of two more I can host the Jimny upwards and keep it level, perfect for the pending gearbox / diff service.
Slightly over rated I know, but happiness underneath is knowing that 1 stand could hold the vehicle on its own, now I have 4. :laugh:


I have 4 of these. At full stretch at the ends of the chassis they still allow full droop with the wheels on which is useful or under the central section of the chassis they allow a very comfortable working height. They also work well with Leviathan who is even further off the ground than Dreadnaught.

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

Bought this from a ships chandler but I have seen them in car accessory shops. Quick and easy to disconnect when you get in the car and reconnect when you get out. Roger

Something from Martin that might bang on my dash, surely not? I have to admit, I haven't tried it yet, so if it does bang on the dash it might have to go, unless I make a dash defender or something.

I did see these, which I quite like (about 70mm long) but thought that would definately mark the dash


I bought this for my other car, it just hangs down away from the dash, I was hoping the Jimny would do the same.


That's my keyring obsession over, at least for 2020

R2D, Just remember it is the oil that goes in the Jimny, the beer goes in you. Probably best not to do both at once.

Set of 4 TPMS valves of ebay from China for £29.58. Thought they were worth a punt to try on my now spare alloys.

Came with two disposable face masks as well :woohoo:

Are you supposed to put a mask on before you open the package:(
