Two years ago Jonny bought the first UK Suzuki Jimny. Now he is modifying the new Smith family Suzuki Jimny with a combination of practical and cosmetic parts.
Welcome to The Late Brake Show. Thanks for stopping by.
In what is part 2 of life with the Suzuki Jimny Jonny fits the following parts:
Rigid 360 Series spot lights: up to 8,600 raw lumens, aluminum housing, blacked-out circuit board, lifetime warranty, 4-inch or 6-inch diameter, 4 backlight colours - £348pr
Jimny Bits Heavy Duty Rock Sliders: double bent tubular, powder coated - £298

Bolt-on drinks holder: 3 mounting different positions, matching design to OEM dash
In the original Jimny video from 9 months ago (see link in video to see that first) it compiled footage and feelings from the first 18 months of living with a new 2019 Suzuki Jimny SZ5. Not only that, but the Jimny was ordered 12 months in advance as a secret surprise Christmas present for Jonny's wife. The Jimny is used every day and is the idea has always been to try and maximise its practicality without the realms of the aftermarket.

Parts fitted originally:
L.E.D rear light units and accessory dash top tidy supplied by Jimny Style -
Rust proofing products used are by Bilt-Hamber -
Roof rack: The Slimline II by Front Runner

  • Congratulations man, this is the type of motoring content I'm looking for! Slow, simple and honest. A proper enthusiast doing videos for other enthusiasts. No need for over the top cinematic sequences, with a bloke trying desperately to sound eloquent. This is what I want! Thanks Jonny

    • Its Not a Bullbar ,,its a Nudge Bar. I'll be opting for one myself but not sure how the Spotlights will Attach.

  • I'd wait on new tires and wheels, have to wear out the tires that came with the vehicle. Never could understand why people get new wheels and tires on a spanky new car.

  • For this money I could buy a short wheel base Mitsubishi Pajero/shogun Automatic. Don't get me wrong the Jimny is a fun beach, light off-road car with decent fuel efficiency buy is I just don't see the price sorry.

  • Isnt that quite a lot of additional weight to stick on a car that isnt exactly overendowed with power in the first place ? Genuine question by the way and not know it all dig.

  • I like the front grill , very reminiscent of the old fj40 land cruisers, so to keep with the theme I think the plane steel rims that flashed up would look great especially if they were grey (aka old fj’s )

  • Love a Jimny, used to sell the old one over a decade ago. I walk past one once a week which says on the spare wheel cover, "you can go fast I can go anywhere" which is so true! Admired the new model and think the mods you have done are great make it look properly tough. Someone should do an EV conversion on an old one, you can get a gearbox adapter from America to fit an electric motor to one.....

  • We had one in red / unfortunately went a bit pink - amazing little thing ! went to Lake Coniston in about three feet of snow - unstoppable ! Tend to corrode badly under rear seats so worth lifting and checking - my wife spaniel and i loved it - would often as in Lake district outperform big heavy 4x4 - always thought of it a mountain goat 🐐 👌❤️❤️

    Richard SRichard Sپیش 3 ماه
  • Capable little motors those Jimny's but not sure how I sit with the metal bull bar thing as these have been frowned upon in recent years. My old family TD5 has a full rubber bull bar (it came with the car) and it feels very soft, basically it's there for looks but not much more, surely that's the way forward?

    Richard StamperRichard Stamperپیش 3 ماه
  • Hopefully the added weight of those Rock Sliders don't jeopardise the performance too much it does have only 101ps!!! Still if they add a functionality then it's worth it.

  • By Australian standards that would not be called a bull bar. We would call that little bar a nudge bar. Look up images of Australian bull bars 🇦🇺

(My Jimny is from 2001 I wanted to mount heavy-duty bumpers of the type in vogue in Australia and then a winch and a +5 set-up of springs and shock absorbers and suspension! and tires higher than the 205-70-15!) and for the laws of suzuki italy that no longer issues the clearances for the registration approvals of my 2001 suzuki Jimny 4x4 I even wanted to mount the arb blocks of the rear differential and front and the super reduced to the gearbox!

  • So the bull bar isn't structural, so if you do hit something, it's gonna do more damage to your rig than if you didn't have it.. and it decreases your approach angle.
