    because the Jimny is light, short and narrow loading on the roof is very limited.
    Does that include the weight of the roof rack? What does a front runner weigh or any roof rack for that matter?

    It likely includes the rack, as those specs are probably for anything more than standard on the roof, and standard = rails, which weigh almost nothing. I estimate my K9 rack is about 15kgs.

    A roof rack close to the max on a Jimny is scary to drive. I'd rather take the fuel consumption hit with wind-resistance by packing the light bulky stuff up there (bedding etc.), than put anything heavy on top.
    It's not the size that counts, but how well it performs in the bush.

    I have had well over 40kg (2 jerries plus spare tyre) with no problems.

    Currently a 63kg RTT - no problems. I do take it a bit slower around sharp bends.

    What would you all suggest: I can get 9mm ply-wood or 18mm shutterply, what would be best for a base board and second level that must carry a NL fridge? The 9mm will be lighter but will it be strong enough for the load?

    You need to save all the space you can, go 9mm

    I have a 9mm carrying my Waeco fridge. More than adequate

    Hi, we do a heavy duty spring for your Jimny to assist with managing extra load. Do give us a call for a quote.

    Jimny has the suspension upgrade.

    Air Springs are also a great help. Can adjust pressure to suit the load

    Does anyone know the name of the thread pattern for the bolts that are normally used to bolt the rear seats down?

    I'd like to buy longer ones to secure my homemade floorboard to the chassis as well as use these bolts to work as a fastening point for gear stored in the back. (not content with using the board alone as a fastening point)

    Post Re: Loading a Jimny

    Hi all.

    New user here, expecting delivery of my pre-loved 2015 Jimny a little later this afternoon. Excited is an understatement.

    I've been trawling this thread for days and am super excited to try my hand at building an "OreRak" over the weekend. I suppose I'm wondering if anyone can confirm that the measurements also apply for a 2015 shape? A lot of the original posts in this thread date back to 2009 (!)

    I'm ideally going to build something...:

    a) that doesn't require me to remove the back seats
    b) that allows me to hide parcels (laptop bag, backgammon board, trail-running shoes/kit) away from prying eyes (ideally in a drawer or small ammo-box under the backboard)
    c) that can carry the weight of camping supplies for a couple for 2 nights (at least) without the need for a roofrack

    I'll keep y'all posted...

    Hi Nick.

    The orerak is perfeck, with the exception of the two side gaps. They are not required for the facelift.
