Dreadnaught has been accused of being smol by one of the neighbours kids today. I had to look this up. Apparently smol is small and cute. Not quite sure that was the first impression I was going for but hey ho!

Today I filled a 20l bucket with mud and filth off the under side of the arches and out of the foot wells. Disgusting. Goes better though without the extra weight!

Today I fitted a set of 2018+ Jimny Load Bars and a 1.4 M Eazy-Out Awning. Was considering the 3/4 rack and full rack but put off by the weight with 3/4 rack being 22 Kgs and the full rack being 27 Kgs. Add the awning on at 9.5 kgs you are already over the 30 kg limit.

Load bars plus Awning comes in at 18 kg so still some capacity for carrying as well and given the primary reason for the load bars/rack was to mount the awning I'm happy with the choice I made.

Quality of load bars and gutter mount etc was very good, One minor niggle in that the gutter mounts did not come with rubber or plastic coverings it was very much metal on metal. I appreciate that this the strongest option but don't like metal on metal. Easily fixed using some Gorilla tape to cover the ends before fitting.

The awning was again good quality however the bracket supplied with the awning was not black. Looked odd against the black load bars so sanded down applied some grey primer followed by black matt. Obviously just cosmetic but does now look better. One surprise when fitting the awning was that the bolts used to connect the awning to the bracket already fitted to the load bars was only M6. All other bolts relevant to the load bars and used to fix the mounting bracket to the load bars were M8. Initial thought was 4 x M6 bolts was not particularly strong however after actually fitting it does appear robust and well secured. I suppose giving that the awning only weighs 9.5 kg then 4 x M6 bolts should be fine.

Lastly I fitted 4 tie down points. Happy with my purchase and should give me some extra protection whether it be sun or rain when I head off on my 4 x 4 adventure next week.

So last week fitted an Armstrong steering damper from JB's and didn't have the opportunity to take it for a decent run until I took the Jimny in to have the slam panel replaced at an Excellent, not so local Body shop.
I can happily report that it has removed all trace of the steering 'shimmy' and was money well spent! I included a pic of the '05 on the ramps because this is the first time I actually used 2WD in Low range and was chuffed to mintballs at how easy it was to climb up the said ramps!







Cheers
