Bodylift to a Jimny

It all started when I replaced my 4-door Mitsubushi L200, with the Suzuki Jimny I own today. Driving my new Jimny, I felt kind of weird in it, in compare with the L200, which was obviously bigger on its 31/9,5/15 Kumho tyres, higher on the nitro Procomp suspension and Old Man Emu suspension leaves. Of course, I couldn't miss all the laughs from my friends, like: "How much for the rental ?", as Jimnies are rental cars for the tourists who explore the island of Thassos, in summer time. So, I started immediately to search for the possibilities of lifting higher and in any way expanding the car I liked.

For the body lift, I ended up with the basic idea from Filipos, a friend and member of the Kavala 4x4 Club and to achieve this idea we made and used the thing on the list below:

A) 6 pieces of plastic in the dimensions shown on drawing 1.
