    I've always thought they'd be a fun vehicle to drive. Especially indoors like in the film the "Italian Job"

    Would be fun vehicles.

    We got a little 2 door Mitzi i car at work and it's actually quite fun https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitsubishi_i
    660cc turbo that's surprisingly quick around city as it weighs feck all and the engine sounds good if trashed. I recon strip all the seats, side doors, rear door, glass, carpets etc and it'd be great fun on a go kart track. In fact replace the road wheels with quad bike wheels, put a little flat deck tray where rear seats are and its a poor man's Polaris............. DIY project thoughts beginning to happen!!!!

    Don't doubt the lil 'Zukis. My old shitbox used to dance past the dedicated Safari/Pajero guys. Something to be said about a light 4wd well set up.

    My barber in Western Australia, had a picture of his Jimney, wife and son plus himself, climbing a sand dune (they have a few there), in a competition - WA 4x4 club, and flying off the crest.
    He won highest jump for the day - a clear 1.2 metres.
    The nearest was 600mm - twin turbo Toyota 4.8L V8, in an early F-series Toyo body.
    He had to do a demo THREE times, as no-one believed the 1300 engine - stock standard in every respect - could out-jump a 750hp modified Toyota.

    These new Suzuki's are 1.5 litre. About time they gave it some more grunt so maybe better travelling on the highway? In Blenheim Road, Peter Monro Commercials they have been upgrading them from new, adding ARB front bar, off road tyres, removing rear seats and inserting a custom ali box to store gear. I think for a forestry company going by some words written on the windscreen?

    Sand dune jumping?

    Well... far be it for me to judge others... but I'm gonna anyway. Its the stupidest thing you can do in a stock 4WD, like really really stupid. Watching our Arab friends wrecking countless 4WDs in the desert is one thing, they've got way more money than sense and they are short on entertainment options in general, but for the regular bloke who thinks he'll give it a go? In his stock truck? Dumb arse.

    You can enjoy hours of truck dune jump fails on YouTube. Hours and hours. Every one makes me cringe.... why??? WHY??? I can't find the one of the guying crying his eyes out after he face plants his FJ Cruiser. Dick. Its hard to find it funny to be honest.

    This would have resulted in a few tears. What a cock. Bonus face plant!



    As for our Arab friends... well...
