That is massive tyres. I Have trouble fitting 31". do you have some sort of reduction gears? I know there is a guy in the UK that sells them for about a sheep sation.

I'm running 80mm Tough Dog suspension lift & 50mm body lift (along with some wheel arch massaging with an angle grinder :D )

replaced the transfer case with a Sierra transfer case with 185% low range reduction and a 25% reduction in high range

Rig is a lot of fun off road but not the most practical as a daily driver.

Dorfl,

I am a bit jealous i have a 2010 Jimny so a body lift is out of the picture as its my daily drive and need to keep it insured. If its possible could you throw a pic up of your wheel arch? I'd like to see the line you chose to trim and and how it changes the look of the car. I like the idea of chopping guards to fit big tyres as it keeps the center of gravity low.
Fun Size!

Fuel consumption for Suzuki Jimny.

Hello to all. My name is Peter and I recently purchased a Suzuki Jimny in the Philippines. It is a 2004 model Automatic Hard Top in good condition with 74000kms on the clock. My major problem is that i am only getting 5kms/lt or 20lts/100kms. I know that I should be getting at least double this in fuel economy. I have replaced the spark plugs which appeared slightly burnt and also a small rubber cap on the fuel return canister that was faulty. But to no avail. The vehicle runs well whilst travelling but has an intermittent miss when hot and idiling. Prior to replacing the the rubber cap on the fuel return canister there was a strong smell of petrol coming from the engine. The cap replacement stopped that smell to a large degree but there is still a slight smell of petrol there when the engine is hot and idiling. Can anyone PLEASE offer any suggestions as to what may be causing this very poor consumption or where I should begin to look.
