    Only joined 4x4community yesterday so maybe I am a little late. Coming back from a recent trip with our stock standard Jimny on gravel roads the following advice. I do not travel faster than 70 - 80 km/h (if in very good condition) with my Jimny on gravel and always in 4x4 high. We had a terrible fright with the Jimny a few years back in Namibia (also my first 4x4 trip) and had a spin out due driving too fast. Luckily no damages. The short wheelbase of the Jimny makes it more vulnerable, please be aware, except if you have good rally skills. I also let the tyres down from 180 to 160 at the rear and from 160 to 140 in front.

    Enjoy your Jimny and the gravel travel.
