That's a very responsible attitude if it's not your land or a dedicated site.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

We have exclusive use of 6 private sites along the Kent/Sussex boarder. If possible we only use each one once a year (twice at the most) so the ground gets a chance to recover. :)

Just spent a couple of cold hours under and around the Jimny checking all the bushes, props, nuts and bolts, etc, jacked the wheels up one at a time and checked for bearing play, and checked the free wheel hub and ARB air locker operation at the same time, then checked all the fluids and ended up topping up the transfer box and engine oil a little...

All ready for another 'laning trip on Sunday then, more parts of Shropshire ;)

Blog soon B)

Is It Sunday Yet? :)

Bit of planned maintenance never did any harm!

I fitted a new ZookBOB product to my own Jimny today - Anti-Roll-Bar 20mm Spacers

As predicted the droplinks have straightened out (a little, I may need some bigger spacers as I'm running 5" of lift, but you can see the positive effect of fitting these!)



Before -



After -



Chuffed B)

(I'm easily pleased :lol: )

Here's the blog - greenlaning.blog/2018/02/27/south-shropshire-milestones/

Bit of TLC before Sunday's greenlaning trip today...



New wiper blades so my co-pilot Alan can see where we're going! ;)



And then an oil leak from the rear diff required my attention :(



Hmmm, it appears to be coming from the bottom two diff bolts that also hold the rear axle's diff guard in place?

So I decided to take the diff guard off for a look, partly as it was full of mud and I struggled to get to the drain plug, so I unbolted the U shaped brackets that held it to the axle and then the two bottom diff bolts, making sure to get a tub underneath to catch the oil that then leaked out of the two diff bolt holes...

I could then get to the drain plug to clean it all out and drain the rest of the oil from the diff...



Yup, the diff guard is full of mud...

(the puddle of oil is just what leaked out when I had the two small boats out to get the guard off)



So, I fitted two new bolts at the bottom of the diff after dunking them in some sealant to cover the threads, and then refilled the diff...



No leaks,,, Hmmm, I suspect the diff guard getting banged offroad has loosened the bolts on the diff, so I decided not to refit it... And then...



Took the front one off too...

Okay, some of my reasoning is due to a falling out with JimnyBits - I simply don't like his business principles, but won't go into details, so I've removed nearly all their products from my jimny - but also they just fill up with mud and reduce my Jimny's ground clearance... so they're off and in the for sale section of this fine site...



Just need to check all the other fluid levels and give the Jimny the once over and we're good to go...

Ah! And having serviced the cordless chainsaw, I've also ordered a spare chain for it :)

Oooh, I forgot... earlier in the week...



I fitted some bigger 'ZookBOB' (Me!) anti roll bar clamp spacers...



These are 40mm ones rather than the 20mm I originally made and fitted, so the droplinks are even straighter now -



I also fitted, whilst developing, a hand throttle -



It simply bolts to the bottom edge of the dashboard, and then when needed -



Folds down and you set the revs to whatever you want with the wing-nut equipped foot that sits on the accelerator pedal, thus keeping your Jim' ticking over at say 2,000 rpm to recharge the battery(ies) after a bit of winching, etc...
