When I ordered my new tyres (see here)  there were only 4 in the UK. However I have found one so now I have a proper spare. Its all very heavy on the rear door but thats a problem to tackle another day. Very pleased as it now looks like a Jimny!

Heavy Duty Transfer Box Rubber Mounts (update)

sized_Jimny_IMG_20180130_201301
Quick update: I have been running the ZookBOB heavy duty transfer box mounts for a week now and can report a very noticeable drop in "noise" from the Transfer Box. The transmitted vibration from the box to chassis and rest of the Jimny has gone! A whole made Rocklobster is never going to be quiet but this one just got a lot better.   ...

Heavy Duty Transfer Box Rubber Mounts

The standard Jimny rubber mounts are notoriously weak when the Jimny is used in anger offroad. It is common to break one, you find your transfer box lever suddenly leans to one side or the stick seems to disappear into the floor and everything shakes and rattles.

In the early days of modifying Jimny's, everyone developed Polybush style heavy duty mounts. Indeed I have a set of mounts which were early production models from Off-road armoury. However, the material used in Polybush items or variants is hard and unforgiving. Yes, it is long lasting and tough but it does not lend itself to comfort. That is why I got rid of my caster correction bushes in the radius arms and went back to rubber based ones, to improve the ride.

The same can be said of the transfer box. The heavy duty polybush style mounts on mine have lasted well but they transmit every vibration and bump onto the chassis and body work.

Getting an identity

I have had the Jimny over 10 years now and in that time it has never had any badges. When I purchased it there was no badges on it and I did not do anything about it.

Centre Dot Fasteners

Not really a how-to, more a rant on the mis-use of these fasteners!

I have had my Jimny for 10 years so it was owned by others for 4-5 years before that. Up to now I have been giving it a hard time off-roading it so I have not been too concerned about the finer details of how it looked. However...
