Castor correction and an extended line on a 50mm lift. This is why I like Trailmaster they have applied engineering and r&d to their products. Good quality at good prices. Thank you Martin.

I do think that the Gen 4 Jimny looks better with a lift and wider tyres. Although it looks fantastic as it is, it is very small and I think a lift does have some benefits.

I would only have a conversion done if it had a genuine off-road benefit and was properly engineered though. I asked the dealer if suspension upgrades would invalidate the warranty in any way, and they said it would only affect related claims (so engine issues would still be covered, for example).

This video gives a great side-by-side comparison here: Side-by-side

I'm not sure if these have been discussed already, but Gollek Automotive have some good options here:
Gollek

There is the Wald Black Bison Edition which is possibly rather too high (but I wouldn't be interested in all the styling bits) here: Black Bison

And finally, KAP Suzuki who make the Landmaster are currently working on a Gen 4 pickup conversion and they have some very interesting initial photos on their Facebook page - I hope they don't mind me copying this photo:

Anyone else have some views?!

Hi. That video of the 2 blue jims. Any idea of the lift height on it? Seems mighty high to me.

Thanks atinod. That Gollek link in particular, is really useful to see different options side by side - don't think I will be doing any of them anytime soon, but it does give an excellent comparison.

Not a very accurate way of showing but the height difference is quite substantial in this photo. Perhaps a 2" lift and the rest from wheel/tyre diameter increase?
