Nickey, those things you stick in the coils to give them a lift are called "Coil Spacers".

Here is a link to an Ebay dude who is selling them for the Jimny.

Yep Dogbox. They said it could take up to 60 days. I have the patience but also have the urge to yell "Is it here yet?, is it here yet?, is it here yet?..." ;)

Only an email last Monday to say the bumper had left the port of Hong Kong. Not usre how long the trip to Oz is. My Jimny is off the road at the moment anyway, son-in-law is fitting the clutch kit.

Will let ya know when it gets here.

Hopefully on the same boat hey :) I'm thinking of ordering the transfer case guard as I have had issues with rocks hitting it in the past.

Thanks for giving me the name of the coil spacers and the website to go to.
Was hoping that you had your bumper my now.
Please post some pics when you get it installed and let us know how you like it.
I'm really interested in getting one for myself.

Hey Zook,

How did the front bar and winch turn out? I ordered the rear bar recently and I'm tossing up between the "heavier but more protective" ARB bar, or the "lighter and will still hold the winch" MIC bar... Love to hear your feedback on how it's working out for you :)
