I can't believe that pickup concept isn't going into production. If you look beyond the cod wood, big wheels and d-shackles the conversion is very well done. The bed and rear bumper look production quality. A lot of effort for a one off. 2007 110 TDCi Station Wagon XS

Really like the new jimny and if I could justify one I would have one. Problem is the size means it’s a small market for people who need a 4x4 but not to carry many tools tow etc where as the defender with the different sizes fitted many people and allowed me to have a vehicle that can do everything.
Cracking vehicle for what it is hope other manufacturers take note of what looks a clearly designed vehicle for its market

A brand new green one passed me on the M1 today. I must admit it did look most agreeable.

I’d love to have one, but not for the 28k euro they sell for over here... Rolling Eyes

I enquired yesterday with Suzuki Bolton, minimum 12 month waiting list but they’re advising 18 months to be safe.

Perhaps the Jimni is a worthy Defender replacement afterall?

Saw my first one today, yellow with a black roof like the pic above. I really liked it, looked less narrow and a bit chunkier than I expected. 2007 110 TDCi Station Wagon XS

Bluest, 5 mins after the photo was taken, the yellow Jimnies in the photo crossed the border into Lancashire. You weren't in a expedition equipped 110 with 2 yellow and 2 white roof mounted spots were you?

No not me,p I’m afraid, although I am close to West Yorks. The Jimmy I saw didn’t have trade plates either. 2007 110 TDCi Station Wagon XS

They are definitely the route LR should have taken. Made In GB. 🇬🇧

Watts ÷ Volts = Amps.
Amps X Volts = Watts

2004 Defender 90 Td5 CSW Belize Green

Definitely the closest we will ever get to the original Land Rover idea! Cool

However, having actually seen one up close now, they are tiny and not a real replacement, even for a 90. Not to mention if you need to tow, not that I do!

Well done to Suzuki though, keeping a basic, non fashionable approach Thumbs Up
