Drop the sidekick.......and give us the Jimny!

Dont mind me, just wish they would bring the Jimny over. In my opinion it looks better the the sidekick.

Re: Drop the sidekick.......and give us the Jimny!

yes it is...

and its running very well... friend of mine took his into the sanddunes, and it drove the $hit out of the other trucks (it does not articulate too well, but has a healthy 80something hp 1,3 engine)... which makes it very good for sanddunes

Re: Drop the sidekick.......and give us the Jimny!

It has solid axles front and rear, coil sprung. If you remove the sway bar(s) you'll get much more articulation. It still has fairly short control arms because it's a short wheelbase like the Samurai, but it has all the right ingredients to be a serious trail rig. I wish they would bring it to the U.S!!!
