Being tight I have one of these on mine: www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07G2WWRXF

Fits well and I prefer the fabric look to vinyl but that's a personal thing :)

I use the polar blast first (as recommended by Ash) - LOL Cheers buddy!

Then Polar wash.... then followed by the BRILLIANT .... "Polar seal"



The polar seal makes the paintwork aqua-phobic :laugh: BUT it Works!

Then a "dabbing" down with this beavers fur to fully dry. No chamois! No swirlies! Perfect.

Highly recommended.

Andy - does David Attenborough know about your use of Polar Bears, Seals and Beavers?

looky what we have here? Very nicely laid out jack n kit. I Space optimisation is key with the little jimny, and every little helps.


was able to place a few handy tools in with the jack.


With Jack foam holder removed. Very nice paintwork ;-)


Some crucial (in my eyes) kit .... now loaded - x2 HAM radio's, Medi-kit, Tyre inflator, tyre pressure gauge, torque-wrench, Emergency strobe (yes over-kill is my style), Playing cards (why not), extra gain HAM antenna with roof mount, LED power torch (which reaches the moon on a good night), hand wipes, lighters, handy bags, gaffer tape (for my unsuspecting victims), mini saw, wheel bolts, compass and a glock 17 ;-) Last one made up.



Or maybe not? :-)

They are truly powerful head lights.

Now all you've got to do is stop them turning on and off every time you drive through the shadow of a tree/building/bus stop/...

My Yeti had Xenon headlights, which i thought were excellent.

The Gen4 Jimny LED's are far better, IMO.

Overpasses are causing me a headache. There’s a few on the new AWPR near me in a single stretch - folks must think I’m flashing them :/ Wonder if you can adjust their sensitivity? I’ve also noticed they don’t really cut in until it’s pretty dark outside, I see 90% of cars driving with their headlights on and mine are still off in ‘auto’ mode.

Yep, a veritable PIA, for sure, Bill. That and the slow response back to high beam after auto dipping, which is quite exciting on dark country roads.:laugh:
