Suzuki Jimny 2018 JB74
We couldn't resist and we took on the workshop the new Suzuki Jimny from 2018.
We changed the wheels to larger 245 / 70R16, we raised the car by 3 inches. In addition, we changed the rear suspension by replacing the radius control arms with a 4-link system. This is not the end of changes. Larger wheels resulted in the necessity to change gears in diffs and to improve - still excellent - the terrain abilities of the car, we installed differential locks, electrically locked to 100% (without switching on they block 70% torsen). Previous changes forced us to mount a more powerful rear drive shaft.
Together with Heavy Cruiser we develop a winch plate dedicated to this model. The plate with the PowerWinch Panther 9.5 winch hit the car.
The car have to move without damage. Therefore, we installed a set of armor plates.
In addition, we installed a roof rack and LED lighting.
Finally, we added our proprietary module to control the winch and LED lights using a smartphone.
The car received good marks and we are also happy with the result.
We wouldn't be ourselves if we didn't check it in the field ... below is a video of the car's possibilities:
