    Re: New Jimny as long hauler?

    He must have been sightseeing, there is no reason the new Jimny cannot comfortably maintain 120 or more.

    That hill would be a solid 3 at best, but it can become very slippery and dangerous when wet. The Jimny does it quite easily. But I have seen a few people make a total hash of it, thinking that...

    Re: Is this it?

    Seems to have a fake bonnet over the engine, and another fake bonnet on the roof to hide the “stepped roof” of the Disco shape
    And some padding on the window sills to hide a design line.

    It seems as if it was designed to overcome everything with fully inflated tyres, I cannot wait to see where it goes with appropriately deflated wheels.

    You could modify 4 steel rims and weld a flat sheet around the rim to level up the hollow section inside, then fit some agressive old tyre’s tread to the flat sheet for some grip.

    It is a Kinetic strap, similar in operation to the Snatch strap, but not a flat strap and does not suffer from the “wait to recover” delay problem that the flat straps have.

    That preference I can appreciate, but they have already moved beyond that, except in the recent Gypsy models. So I suppose it is a case of wait and see.

    Do yourself a favour and pop in at wesellcars, near Midstream/ Highveld. Unless you have a principle issue with them. A very big selection of vehicles.

    A side entry- have a look at a pre-owned Mitsubishi ASX
    2litre with CVT
    Power enough and amazing space and features
    Second hand should fit in that price bracket
    Not too bad on fuel too.
