Thank god you didnt say the ford garage at the roundabout lol - had a few bad experiences from them!
Im fae macduff/turru/buckie/cornhill....... around :)
Unfortunately my jimny isna lifted yet cause adam needs to pull his finger oot and get his new lift kit on so I can get his old spacers :D ( and I need to raise the cash )
I'd say get the jimny if you dont need much stuff carted about and dont mind sitting at 50-55mph on the roads round here.....get the jimny :)
Absolutely amazing in the sna - even on normal tyres and even for a tiny motor, I manage to fit the bairn and wife in the car, and all of santas pressies + 3 rig bags....but it was a squeeze.

As for what mods to do, Ive been looking at the shop section on here,
here: www.zanfi.it/modules.php?name=catalog&file=index&cPath=63_66 does a full bodylift kit that comes with brake lines, fuel lines, etc etc
and here: www.offroad-armory.com/jimny.html


Any info Ive asked here has been quickly answered.....however look thru the whole site, theres a LOT of info here :)
