Looks like a proper little play that!

Side question, what did you take the pictures with?
1986 SJ410 - Furry dice, new window winder.

10 kinds of people in this world, those who understand binary and those who dont.

Completely different

So steering is much improved, even with the lockers it's got the steering is so much better, it's got more flex and when winching the axles don't flop about like they did.

It is very soft though, very soft 😂😂😂

But yes much improved, when flexed all the angles are nice too, everything is well protected, james did a very nice job on it. But it has taken somthing away from it, like the suzuki unsafe \ fun? Aspect, I'm pleased with it especially from a competition point of view, if I was to just have it for play days or what ever I wouldn't have bothered.

I've had numerous people comment on how well it's setup

I don't know how to add a vid, someone took one.

Awesome glad to hear it, probably be much more reliable without the axles flopping around while winching as well :lol:

I'll have to come watch it in action sometime.

At least the softness can easily be tuned out now with some higher rate coil springs haha

Yeh I can't see the 8mm cds tubs moving much 😂

Yeh man come and watch, the springs are jimny bits plus 4 but with winches and the extra wheel base ect cage and that, there like a standard higher spring, saying that is does sit nice and low, even on 38.5 tyres !
