I meant to comment on this the other day, but was just browsing off-line on my phone then forgot.

Really sorry to hear about your break in (my worst fear of owning the Jimny now as they are not that easily replace (equal to some numpty crashing into me)). Very glad to hear you got it back though, must be such a relief. Have you thought about a tracker that send alerts to you mobile?

If you weren't a firearms owner, I bet you are now.... :D Great news, I'm so glad that you managed to get it back in one piece.

Wow, what a roller coaster ride.
So happy you got it back. Time to get a bigger dog or a smaller dog flap.:laugh:

So the build is full steam ahead now that everything mechanically appears to be in order after the robbery.

Against my better judgement I went with the OME 40mm lift kit. As I said earlier I typically steer clear of ARB (as much as I love their products) but delays and wait times with other kids has pointed me in the direction of OME. Happy to report that the kit has positively transformed the driving experience (on road). Which sounds counter intuitive given the centre of mass is now 40mm higher.

I installed the 7inch XTM spotties from BCF with the help of a mate. They work brilliantly and at $100 a pair what could go wrong lol.







My OCD kicked in and Decided to undertake some more DIY on the weekend and eliminate the rust that had developed rather rapidly on both the axle shaft ends. Something I simply cant hack being a 3 month old car.



After some massaging with a wire brush drill bit...



A sprinkle of primer.



A touch of epoxy enamel.



Ta Da!

Sweet looking rig mate!

did you manage to fit the Maxxis MT762 [235/75r15] on Dynamic Sunraysia steelies [15x7] under the car on stock suspension or did you throw a lift kit under the truck first?

The 235/75r15s were fitted before the OME installation. 235s fit fine on stock suspension IMO. You will experience minor rubbing at full articulation.
