    I have a soft spot for small 4x4 bakkies.

    I agree they could have done so much more (lengthen the chassis and give it a good lift), but it would probably exceed their intended price point.

    I would never buy one - I think the current Jimny is overpriced by 40-60k, but it is still a niche flippen cool little off-roader.

    Looks like something built for Africa Burn by a magic mushroom farmer still tripping from the last Burn.

    I get the idea, but the execution is horrendous looking. The British and Australian conversions are more on the mark.

    I hope it works well for the farmer and does what he wants it to do.

    Looks like he is going to have traction problems on the front wheels with a heavy load......

    I'd rather wait for the Duster 4x4 bakkie that is hopefully coming here than do this.

    Who designed this thing, roughly 80% of the load bin is behind the rear axle. There is no way the chassis will be able to handle the cantilever loads the cargo will place on it. Unless they transport candy floss only, that thing won't last a month!!
