Did you have front mudflaps fitted as well?

Today I raided my penny jar, as I needed extra storage space. I came up with a nifty solution.

Got some velcro from Toolstation.


Some gear stowed. The soft boxes come with a divider and velcro already attached at the bottom.


Looks good too.


Provides a decent amount of staorage space


But best of all, the storage holds the luggage net, and for security/privacy so know one can see what you have, the boot matt lies snugly over the top.

Stowage boxes can be taken out with ease (because of velcro) and your seat down matt out option is available at any time.

Perfect.

Lot of work you've put in there Andy - and the result is looking mighty fine.

All you need now is to be talent-spotted as the new presenter of the upcoming TV show "Pimp My Jimny" and you can then begin to recoup some of all that money you've spent!

Seriously though, really good job well done.

Thanks fella's. I dont like to brag over material goods, its just passion and excitement. Aldo to give ideas to any new jimny owners.

Anyways.. i did a bit of off roading this morning. I'll try and upload my video too later.


Not one bit of noticable wheel spun, just beavered straight up the incline. Decent control works a treat! Confidence now building up nicely, it'll be on its roof in no time

Have you considered professional tuition for off road driving, it's one of the best investments you can make in a 4x4?

Be prepared for most of them to be very land rover centric. That said the basic principles are the same it's just less automated and more real in a Jimny!

Avery light play. Video's never show the true scale of the ground though. It felt and looked much steeper. #BabySteps.
