  4. Re: Down Van Zyls Pass Towing Trailers and Caravans: Patrol, Cruiser, and Jimny

    :) As jy 'n Jimny ry praat jy nie baie nie - kyk na die videos dan sal jy sien dat ek meestal after gery het om seker te maak niemand bly agter nie anders net voor as ek help:):)
  5. Re: Down Van Zyls Pass Towing Trailers and Caravans: Patrol, Cruiser, and Jimny

    Ja DC seker maar 'n bitter pil om te sluk as 'n Jimny jou moet help maar nouja as jy kopseer het drink jy enige pil wat moontlik kan help;)

    Re: Maximum load on roof rack

    Hi Aldo I'm the Jimny guy mentioned in hatjohan's reply and sure this is a debatable question - my advise is to get confirmation/approval of what you intend to do/load from your vehicle manufacturer,...

    Went there in July 19 and found a Motor home on its way to de Hoop from Sendelings, might give you some insight – see You tube https://youtu.be/Bt74TSt-MU4
  21. Re: Jimny damage on roof where the roof rack fits on to the roof

    Welcome back.. In short this for Jimny owners to see what could happen and each owner can take this in a way he/she deems fit and not about my "hearts desire" neither is it about age neither is it...
  22. Re: Jimny damage on roof where the roof rack fits on to the roof

    Glad that you did not have roof damage.. really not a nice experiance believe me. Question then comes to mind on my side which failed first - roof or foot piece and I think the answer to this will...
  23. Re: Jimny damage on roof where the roof rack fits on to the roof

    They mailed me and said that they understand Suzuki's allowed weight is only 30 kg - did not mention what the rack could carry. I used the rail that fits on the 8 roof nuts only. Not sure how it...
  24. Re: Jimny damage on roof where the roof rack fits on to the roof

    Correct it was the L bracket both sides. Did you have any damage on your roof?

  27. Re: Jimny damage on roof where the roof rack fits on to the roof

    Tx D well said and believe me after fixing my damage I will do it again in my Jimny. Only difference is that I've changed the foot mounts with rail mounts but more how it was done later

    Hi Rebel tx for replying however I've been in contact with Jay Jay WC rep and Jaco the Sales manager HO and they stick to their sticker on the rack referring to manufacturers load specks so needles...
  29. Re: Jimny damage on roof where the roof rack fits on to the roof

    You sure have a way with words... especially the "Are you crazy" comment... Loading a RTT with 2 Jerry Cans cannot be labelled as "load it like you want"... 100kg+ might be a push for the Jimny but...
  30. Re: Jimny damage on roof where the roof rack fits on to the roof

    Suzuki says 30 kg rack included, Frontrunner sticker says load according to manufacturer specifications so who in the Suzuki or FR stable will give us confirmation of the increased weight?

    Well GKE, I don't mind you calling me crazy but a correction 30kg's rack included as per the Suzuki specks in the manual but you need to love a manual to know this. Who reads it to the letter - the...
  33. Re: Jimny damage on roof where the roof rack fits on to the roof

    Yes I'm busy with Front Runner and Suzuki P&A but feedback to this moment not very positive - busy doing a full report which I will publish once all came to the party. Damage like this is bad news...
  34. Re: Jimny damage on roof where the roof rack fits on to the roof

    I recall the thread. Can you post a pic of your roofrack? As I recall, Frontrunner changed the design from being 4 feet to having 2 rails. That somewhat relieved the issue. This is how mine looks.
