Bonjour et bienvenue:drink:

Hello Renard38, nice work there. Did you do it all yourself? My Jimny is pretty standard apart from the obvious differences.

Hi, welcome to the forum Renard38. Like the shovel holder on the spare wheel. Do you have much areas over there to play or are the Greenies closing it down like they have in England and trying to in Australia.

In my town, it's forbiden everywhere to practise offroading, so with my friends we are "outlow".

Many pieces on my jimny, i do it myself. I find ideas on the differents forum.

Oi your steering wheel is on the wrong side Ha Ha Ha.

Nice jimny love the rev lights. Is the bar in the vehicle all the time or can you remove it. What about your rear vision mirror? I bet 200W of lights comes in handy for "tailgater's"

the bar in the vehicle is for all the time ( i never remove it ). It's not a problem, the rear vision mirror is ok:thumb:

Good videos Renard. Would not like to be driving a huge hummer in that second clip. Nice drop off over the side.

I love Japan's jimny. I would like have this:

with a small front bumper:
Image

and a small rear corner bumper:

Image
Image

and an exhaust like this:

Image
Image

so i decided to make it myself ( cause it's impossible to find rear corner bumper in France, and in import, it's to expensive:mad:)

I used polyester resin:

hi,

I painted the rear corner bumper. It is not easy to do, this is why, it is not quite finished:

Image
Image
Image

After, I put the turn light in place of reverse light:
( but, there is a special bulb socket, so i must buy a light who come's from a suzuki swift )

Image

Then, i changed the location of silentblock to adapt my exhaust:

Image

and i maked my license plate bracket :

Image

Image

Image

the plate is illuminated with LED lighting motorcycle

Image

in the night:

Image
Image

next pictures coming soon

My jimny have air bags ( when i practice offroading, i disconect it ):

Image
Image

the air bags are not problems for the body lift.
