Almost certainly going to have to be custom made at this early stage of gen4 availability. Nice idea though.

Curious as to why?

Where will you keep the spare, inside the car?

Yeah, personally i think the spare tire on the back gives the Jimny its unique character.

In fact, ive seen the dealer model sat without the spare wheel, and just my opinion - It looks weird and not quite right.

One of the local fencing contractors used to have a motorised spool thing on the back door of his for winding up reclaimed barbed wire. Kinda cool and abjectly terrifying at the same time. It was like a motorised rope saw for the zombie apocalypse!

I see a weird trend out of India, particularly in the Mahindra Thar community where a lot of guys have smaller, very bling rims with massive tyres.

It seems guys just have a naked rim mounted back there presumably because the tyre won't fit and would also block vision.

A rim would bolt right up and be smaller thus presumably out of sight?

Can't you get something made like this -

But to move the spare wheel down rather than up?

Is that buggy finished yet?...

In act looking at your original photo -



That spare wheel carrier looks like it could be flipped? and then the above spacer could be used on it to move the spare wheel DOWN...

Perhaps ask JimnyBits if they could try it first before you order?

You might want to look into the legalities of number plate reading angles before lowering the spare. I vaguely recall it had to be readable from 45 degrees for those pesky overhead speeding cameras. Not sure if that was just QLD though. Perhaps solved by lowering the number plate and letting air out of the spare. The same applies if you fit a larger tyre.

you can take the bracket off and just have bolts.

Or, I did see a cover like the one you found for the 3G, but i'm sure it was for the new 4G. Possibly just on Instagram, but will try find it.

The guidelines can be switched on or off. While the camera is on, press the settings button, from there you can adjust Contrast, Brightness and Guidelines.
