I have just stumbled upon this Youtube video which shows an ordinary Jimny being modified to appear like the Brasilian "4sport" Jimny edition:



I do not know if the modification is full or partial, or if original 4sport accessory items were used.

I love the step they add just behind the door. I hadn't noticed that before.

I measured up for the step.....how small are their feet.....100mm wide=tiny "Trump" feet :D


It's Brazilian so probably genuine parts?

It appears that the first video which I linked here is actually part 2 of a 2-part video.

Here is part 1:



Part 1 shows only the installation of the snorkel.

I also noticed that step for the first time in my life.

However, only 10 cm of width makes it unusable for putting your foot in, unless you are a small to medium sized female with some light shoes.

Also, the side molding between the side door and the rear wheel arch would have to be cut, probably making the end result rather ugly.

On the other hand, if one could, instead of a side step, make a storage box inside that space (with a lid similar to the fuel tank flap lid), that might be an interesting addition to the vehicle. Jimny is very frugal on cargo space and that might be quite handy to keep some items in.

That's just a concept idea.

I figured I could make it neatly....just couldn't get my dainty feet in....then the extra bracing to make it strong enough.......probably easier to cast one in Al..

Maybe a small cargo box with a lid would then be a more sound solution because it does not have to be nearly as strong? It just requires a nice looking lid (perhaps a fuel flap lid from another Jimny or a larger lid from some larger vehicle?

Or could a lid be made from the cut-out section of the side plastic molding (which has to be cut for this anyway)?

It could be identical to the factory one?



I just couldn't see a practical use for it....either as a step or as storage for that matter.....I have side bars for standing on?

Looks like the next edition which is due soon in Brazil.

I'm not a fan of squared arches....might be possible to buy from Brazil at some point.....I looked to buy the previous version....ended up making my own. Jimny4k
