Lol tell me about it!! Way too easy to get get carried away with stuff. I'm thinking 3in lift, corrected radius arms, steering damper, rear shock relocation brackets, snorkel, various armour bits for underside, don't know what tyres and wheels to go for really as i want to go big but don't want issues with catching on full flex? What do you guys think? Oh and have i forgotten anything off list that's a must have?

15x8 rims are a good size for 31's , as for what tyres are you going to be using the jimny as your daily driver if so you might want to avoid tyres like special tracks as they are noisey on the road

for a lobster box get in contact with tony bigoffroader on here

I'm going to see how i go with using it as a daily driver as i can't justify having two cars really so i'm selling my Audi. iI's going to be a bit of a shock to the system driving a 1.3 though hehe Smile
