    The late 80s was a long time ago. The UTVs are very good these days. Lots of farmers are switching to these instead of small tractors or bakkies.

    Joh - i've seen prettier vehicles.

    But what would be the need for such a small "bakkie" on a farm? Serious question - and considering the money he spent, he probably could have bought something ntha! Maybe just a crazy idea / experiment with money to burn?

    Surely an URI 4x4 would have been better?

    Here in Germany they are rather common, have a aluminium square and flat tray mounted. Looks really cool. Must try and snap a picture.

    I wonder if the locally built one isn't purpose specific, possibly the design is being slandered without purpose.

    But as it stands, it is real ugly!

    Apparently the Jimny bakkie can get quite extreme

    Just my 2c, I totally agree with it being fugly. But who did the cab conversion and at what cost? I would love to buy a high mileage, cheap Gen 3, convert to single cab, extent chassis by 300mm and make it a mini trayback (read Aussie style). Can something like this be reregistered as a rebuild of sorts to change the GVM rating?

    Have you been watching 4WD247? (I have)

    You are spot-on, no way to make a Jimny bakkie look good without extending the chassis to move the rear wheel back.

    If it wasn't for the background I'd say that photo is a bad paintshop job, it's horrendously ugly

    The work on the cab doesnt actually look too bad, it all just went terribly wrong with the bak part

    4WD247 all the time. They will make me move to Australia for all the wrong reasons....

    The extension will just make it that little more practical and a little GVM upgrade would be perfect. You can then add a long range tank under the tray and that's basically it.
