What's the best accessory you've fitted to your Jimny?

Ours being a Gen 4 there's not a vast amount available, but l love the retro "Suzuki" front grille that the first owner fitted.

After that l would have to say the rubber mat for the rear, as it makes it so much more useable without everything sliding around.

Escapegear seat covers - completely eliminated the static shocks that were driving me mad, tough as nails and look great. Best investment I've made.

Are we allowed to remove items?
If so removing the rear seats and making it a permanent load area in our G3 is the best thing I have done to it.
Just in case it's fit only, running a close second is my LED light bar which lets me set up camp in daylight, even when it's dark.

Best modification? Seats? Tyres? Load deck? Tow bar? Trailmaster dampers? It depends on what your criteria are for defining best. Everything I have done has served a practical purpose for working with Dreadnaught on the farm, even the Recaro seats as they stopped my back from aching. The fact that some of them combined make Dreadnaught a lovely car to drive is coincidence.

Since changing the tyres on mine I’ve not had any static shocks.

For me it would be removing the after-market reversing camera and fitting The Genuine JA/EU/UK Reversing Camera with Guidelines, and it works well with the Sonar Beepers in the Bumper!

Next calling Suzuki Roadside Assist who called the RAC Man to re-start my Alternator! :woohoo:

Yes it's a tough call as they all have been fitted to provide a function. But if you had to do without one which would you miss the most?

+1 for the escapegear seat covers. They not only look good but also make the seats much more comfortable. I also got their gear lever cover / pockets thingy. It adds useful storage without taking too much space. Expensive but excellent mod.

Sitting on the floor would certainly be uncomfortable but not being able to tow a trailer safely would make making money very difficult. I'd probably say that the tow bar is the one thing that more than any other has paid for itself most times over.
