I went off roading:woohoo:

With a difference. Through two gardens! Drove up wrong drive to a friends house, (semi detached big old hoose), dividing hedge just been howked out so big soft earth trench now awaiting a fence.
"Just drive over" friend says, rear wheel digs in to fine gravel drive.
For the 1st time since purchase last Oct. I engage LR 4wd, sailed across bumpy divide in fine fashion.

I'm no longer an off-roading virgin!

Well, in the three weeks since we bought our Jimny we've done over 700 miles.
l've sprayed the underside with a clear rust preventing product
Fitted clear side indicators, a boot mat, and ordered the rear speaker kit.
Weather's too bad to do much at the moment except drive it though.

I took some pics of the underside and inside the wheel arches to check out the rust situation as I plan on making it look beautiful again! (will start separate topic).

1999 Jimny with 3" lift, Redacted transfer box, under-body protection, Cooper STTs and folding cup holders...

A nice little ride up a local track in Swansea before it closed (seasonal byway).

Got very hairy after this point. Rain set in, clouds came over and it got dark. Ended up going through water which was over the bonnet by the end of the track - a little unexpected! The Jimny handled it with ease.

Had to put the tyre pressure up on the back of Dreadnaught today. Why?

I assume the nose weight of your trailer may have something to do with it.
Now there's an interesting point ( if you are a farmer that is ) why don't Suzuki et-al add to the door post tyre pressure idiogram one representing a fully laden 4 wheel sheep and cattle transporter.
