Ordered. No diy kits so it's the pre-cut pre-welded fully assembled by Jimnybits option which I'll gladly take so don't have to ask anybody to cut an Anti Roll Bar in half then send it to me. 
Jimnybits also list off all the additional parts needed which I ain't got so vey helpful.

Looking for a nice clean and straight LHD Jimny..... Not any more.
Got one that seems to have been magnatized and driven through the "Big Jimny Bits" parts stores too quickly so it missed a few items.

Alternate options. I wonder why JimnyBits didn't do cut end links like these few examples.
(If I ever get a complete ARB I'll look at replacing the Jimny bits one and getting some disconnecting end links that fit straight from the supplier or even getting some modified to fit mabe even completely fabed.)

Because they know their market, the shiny stuff like that is not going to sell as well as it might in the Jeep community because there's a perception that Jimny stuff is budget end not high end.

They wouldn't work on the Jimny. The Jimny drop links are very short and, with one removed, the end of the ARB passes very close to the droplink bracket (it may even hit the bracket, depending on how well your ARB is aligned in the chassis bushes.) You need to completely remove the drop link for it to work.

Busta. 
And therein probably lies the reason why Jimnybits did it the way they did.

$59 for 2 steel tubes with 2 steel tabs welded to them ain't cheap. Makes those $120 jeep end liinks look like good value.
I need to check how much my complete kit was with the used ARB.

Ah yes value for money Vs sale price, there's a can of worms and no mistake!

I usually sell a similar kit in complete kit form that you weld up yourself, but I’m unfortunately in various hospitals at the moment, si I’ve had to end all my eBay listings…

 

Bought one of these off Dave and works perfect , Im not racing or in trials but some of my farm work is tough and the extra flex is spot on .

X buggy: nice kit. What are the blocks for ? Hope you're fixed soon and get back on the road to offroading

Here's what I gladly paid.
Basic kit:                                £69.00
Installed on good used ARB: £70.00
Total Price:                           £139.00
Little pricier than the jeep options but seeing as there's no alternative I think it's worth it plus they take the hassle out of cutting & welding making it truly bolt on. 
Like I said, saves me having to find one and asking the seller to cut it in half so as to post it.
Im not paid by them to say this.

The blocks in Dave's kit are spacers
For where the bushes mount to the chassis
When you do a suspension lift it changes the angle of arb
So they help keep the factory angles

I usually list these in 6, 12, 25, and 38mm but am unable to ship due to being incarcerated in various hospitals…

(Nicely finished Aluminium spacers with matching longer bolts and spring washers - £14.95, £19.95, £24.95, £29.95 including UK shipping)

The photo above shows original JimnyBits ~6mm ones stacked with some of my 12mm ones… 6mm to clear the dislocating arms and 12mm on top for the lift as JOJ mentioned…

I’ve got six anti roll bars in the man cave with the intention of offering complete bolt-on disconnect bars, but not had the time to make them up yet…

I think it’s the cutting and welding that puts most people off? This is why I offer mine as just the components you need, as if you have to weld some of it, you might as well weld all of it and save some money… or, buy a ready made up bar?
