31/12/07 - Air System - updated

The Jimny is fitted with an ARB difflocker in the rear axle. These difflocks are operated by compressed air, therefore an air source is required.

Andy has designed and built a "Swing Away" carrier that not only solves this problem but also deals with the weight issue of the wheel. In my solution the weight is carried by the rear door and based on past experience with the SJ series this will eventually lead to "door sag". In Andy's solution the weight is carried by the rear bumper......
