Not really done any updates on this as all iv done is enjoy! Actually attended a anus fest and upset quite a few anus people :rhinohump:

Iv got to say how impressed I was with its ability, very stable aswell for an sj.
No I didn't roll it I drove it out undamaged

So the SJ has been on the road a year now. Been absolutely spot on. I'm trying some different springs to see if there's a difference in comfort. Sjs are never going to be too comfortable but I'm definitely at the comfier end.
I also found an absolute steal on Amazon for a 4-2-1 manifold, £120 posted from the states, so I'm waiting for the rest of the new exhaust system iv ordered, 2" but have ordered a magnaflow box and pro fusion silencer to keep noise to a minimum without much restriction. Mot is due but I'm in no rush, waiting for the nice weather to arrive
