Will require a bit of trimming to fit here and there. The LRs have very flat sides, Jimnys are rounded and have body moldings as well. Probably never going to fit perfectly, but depends what your after.

Cheap:

But will probably not look good.. Cheap seldom does sadly..

The Keithy ones from the post above here, and the very expensive and hard to get, Arctic trucks / formverk / Icelandic / extreme 32 ones are the only ones that look good in my opinion..


formverk.is/brettakantar/suzuki-jimny/

Some of the other alternatives are so ugly i will not even mention them to avoid upsetting those who have them.

2005 Jimny M16A VVT, 2" Trailmaster, 235/75-15 MT
1987 SJ413 lwb, G16BB, 4" trailmaster, 2xARB, 4.16:1 transfer, 325/60-15 MT -project in pieces..

Mine are fugly, Land Rover F'ugly...

If you go for the single skin moulded ones like these -



They can be heated with a hot air gun to get a tidy(ish) fit -







Depends what you want to do with your Jimny? Mine gets greenlaned once a month and pushes through lots of undergrowth, these have been on for a few years and have taken loads of abuse, been reattached and repaired over time...

(Mine's running 31" x 10.5" tyres on offset rims for sizing reference)
