Just bought a Jimny after some weeks of looking. The task begins of adding bits. I'm looking for:
Roof rack
Cage (as I'll be carrying tools, and don't want to have my toolbox wrapped around my head in the event of a smash)
2" lift kit (to accommodate BF Goodrichs - still haven't made up my mind on 235s or 215s)

Any and all recommendations gratefully received.

I will have a 2" trailmaster 'comfort' springs and shocks lift for sale in Jan (used for about 2 years). Trailmaster are widely thought of as the best of the kits.

I also have a set of 5 Maxxis MT tyres in 235 size for sale currently, But if you havent thought about gearing yet then they woudnt be for you. 215 is the limit without starting to mess about with gearing ;-)

2007 with M16 VVT, R7me gearbox,
31x10.5r15 Cooper STT, 3.9 ARB Locker diffs & rocklobster,
5.5" total lift, Zookbob HD steering shock,
Custom front bumper, guard & rack,
Arches, CB, Light bar, rocksliders, diffs/shocks/t-box/fuel guards,
Snorkel + K&N panel, Tow points & 13500lb Winchmax, Buzzweld...

Yes, I'm going for the 215s - just waiting for a price. Haven't made up my mind on a lift kit yet. Will also be looking for a tow hook/bar. One that unclips looks interesting, but the price isn't.

A 2" lift with 215/75/15 is a good spec without going too serious. It doesn't need castor correction radius arms like 3" plus or longer brake lines.
