Time for a Steel Front Bumper for the Jimny!
The original bumper is fine, but it sticks out a long way, and even more annoying, it always rubs a LOT on my tyres. It just got embarrassing.
So I've switched it out for this new steel bumper. It's a two-piece bumper and includes some excellent recovery points. Unfortunately, though, the new bumper uses the solid lateral chassis rail for mounting, so I had to remove the A-Frame mounts (I've had a new A-Frame made up though, which bolts to the recovery points).
The LED lights look pretty good, and the new bumper gives me an amazing approach angle to any obstacles that I face.
As far as I know, the bumper is not so compliant for WOF standards, as it's not 'Airbag Approved'. Which seems kinda silly.
This is a nice solid bumper, and the best bit is that it's only 21kg! I've had this made overseas and I had a couple of extras made up. If you're interested in one of these extra bumpers, CONTACT ME. Because these are not 'Airbag Approved', they're strictly for offroad use only.
