Suzuki 4x4 Jimny, Modified.


Due to very high request, we set out to find a Suzuki 4x4 and we found heaps! So wait no more! One of the many that stood out was this one, Siani’s tough looking Suzuki Jimny. This thing will go anywhere with ease as the Suzuki Sierra Jimny has such good approach, departure and ramp over angles. 

Add a lift kit and bigger wheels with some mods on top of that and it’s a small big monster (if that makes any sense).

This modified episode really shows you don’t need a giant 3 ton truck to get out there and enjoy the outdoors, sure the cargo space suffers a bit on a vehicle this size but that doesn’t rule out week long trips at all.

Siani is also the second female to show her vehicle on our modified series (along with Deb from Episode 5). These ladies know how to 4 Wheel Drive!

Top 3 tips with Suzuki Jimny:

1.       Get front and rear lockers - expensive but extremely worth it .

2.       Use that short wheel base and small width to your advantage on track.

3.       Its light and will bounce, get protection - bar work is cheaper than body repair work.
