Each to their own...

yes there is a member on here somewhere that has done it on his build thread. You need the wings, bumper, bonnet and probably the wheel arch plastics. Fairly straightforward if you have the parts.

Afraid i cant remember who that was tho :silly:

As mentioned before, I have.

It was somewhat easy to do as the Jimny remains remarkably unchanged since '98

Is it possible to keep the bumper while still swapping fenders, grille and hood maybe?
I do not think its ugly(er)!
The Jimny is never a piece of jewelry anyways :)

I for one would probably find that this might be too expensive and that there where no immediate practical reason to do this swap. but i like the other grille as long as there is no chrome. and someone tries to make it look like a hummer.
Hummers are very ugly and other than the H1 they are completely pointless.

Yes, I had a MK3 Bumper on mine before I did the rest of the front end conversion.

if money Isn't a concern, they do a similar/older style bonnet on the JB32s in Japan with a hood scoop and space for the grille, no need to swap out the wings.

On the other hand, I would rather spend the money on a diff locker....

It's your Jimny, you do whatever you want with it ;)

I've been modifying and offroading Suzuki Vitaras and Jimnys for 25 years now, and part of that hobby is that everyone has different ideas about what they want to do with their vehicles and how they want them to end up looking... B)

If they all looked the same it would be a dull hobby! :woohoo:

is It Sunday Yet?
