This Zuke crawls so slowly it doesn't have any wheel spin and makes it look easy!

Nice to see a bit of well controlled and thought out off road action rather than the normal "hit it as fast as you can" videos. Not easy and just shows what you can do on cart springs.:)

That was great to watch, I guess those rocks would be very slippery as well. Food find!

That is a good one. I like it.

I started out with nothing & still have most of it left

Sounds like 500cc.
There are some other videos of these guys with a blue/purple JB23 that flexes well

Looking for a nice clean and straight LHD Jimny..... Not any more.
Got one that seems to have been magnatized and driven through the "Big Jimny Bits" parts stores too quickly so it missed a few items.

How did he manage that level of control in what looks like a manual without burning out his clutch?

Probably. In first gear low I can get out of my Jimny, walk right around it and get back in again whilst it trundles along on idle

They will have fitted a crawler box- a modified transfer case that gives super low gearing in low range. Normally high range is only altered slightly, to correct for oversized tyres, so road speed isn't affected.

When you look at some of their other videos they have transports for the Jimny in the car park. Probably because of some of the body damage they attract.

I can put mine in low range 1st gear and walk around it too a it's that low geared and slow. This guy could probably crawl on the ground next to his as the gearing is so low.

He probably has a trailer for it due to the distance he has to travel to the trail and the high risk of damage. It's not likely to be nice to drive on the road.
