Does anyone know the pulling power of a Jimny in 4wd low ratio?

If it's towing on the road, 4x4 Low cannot be used... and the towing capacity is 350kg unbreaked, 450kg breaked.

According to Suzuki for the latest generation it's 350kg unbraked and, not that you would want to 1300kg braked.

4wd low makes zero difference to this. The 4wd system is only designed to be used on loose and slippery surfaces. If used on dry grippy surfaces like tarmac it winds the transmission up and will ultimately cause issues.

I'd say that was impressive but i've seen a human pull more.

Mine struggled to pull a Ford Focus along a flat road, saying that, that was on the old engine
