Re: new Jimny

Roach, if you look at this picture of the jimny, you can see the front differential, that is a
straight axel setup,
they are basicly a very worked over samurai with a new body on it, but chassy is the same and drive train is
basicly the same too.

Re: new Jimny

I saw them while I was in NZ last May. They looked pretty neat! I still like the Sami pickups better!!!

Creator, everything we do leaves a track. May our tracks be ones we would want you to see and others to follow......
