Thanks Jimnyjerry.  Those links are very helpful.  Are you a Jimny owner too?

 And thanks Findem.  I contacted the Australian Museum but unfortunately they have none left.  Second book sites from here!

Regards John

Used to own a maroon 1999 manual Jimny.  Used to do round trips of 7000 km to Agate Creek most years in it.  :)

Traded it for a SWB Pajero when the Jimny got to 300,000 km.
Was a good little 4WD that could float over boggy ground.  ;D

Space and lack of grunt up Moonbi Hill finally forced me to up grade. Also it did not have the clearance and width in the end to clear the ruts in the jump ups at O'Briens any more.

I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

300000km.  That's very encouraging - mine is a 2017 model - it was in the final batch of Jimny's delivered to Australia.  Only done 10000km, so I expect it to be around for quite sometime.  Currently it's being upgraded so I can do some prospecting in more remote spots.

And yes, I have found Moonbi seriously challenging.  It's definitely better going down hill!

Cheers

So true  ;D ;D

Only upgrade I did to mine was a solid bullbar and strenghting the struts to the front diff after hitting a roo the other side of Bourke. Bent the diff enough so a year later it snapped a strut.

Presume you have the button shift between 4WD etc they put on the later models rather than the shift lever. A guy I met at O'Briens Ck a few years back found his stopped engaging.

Jimny was still going strong when I sold it.  You will have years of fun out of yours.

I have a 1987 -
Tamworth - Hastings
1:250,000
Metallogenic Map
Mineral Deposit Data Sheets and Metallogenic Study.

It was put out by the Dept of Mineral Reources and is a 438 page book.  Invaluable for that region.  I got it from the Mineral Office in Armidale in 1988 or '89.
