Suzuki confirmed off a Jimny pickup truck idea at the 2019 Tokyo Vehicle Salon, and it garnered a lot more beneficial hoopla for the by now beloved new-era 4×4. But a lot more than a yr later on, there are no indicators that a output version is coming in the fast future, if at all. So, customers of the aftermarket are building their own. Shropshire Quads out of the United Kingdom normally takes standard Jimny SUVs and converts them into pickups by lifting the auto and incorporating a steel tub to the rear.
Shropshire Quads has been building Jimny pickups for a long time. The firm started undertaking the conversions on utilized versions but has considering the fact that developed to increase the new Jimny to the procedure, as well. Here is how it all started:
We are a compact household operate enterprise centered in close proximity to Cleobury Mortimer in South Shropshire. We are principal agents for Arctic Cat and Kymco ATVs. We felt that there was a niche gap in the agriculture/land administration sector for a small lightweight pickup with a lot more creature comforts and dependability than your regular UTVs. We went in search, and following loads of exploration, we decided that the Suzuki Jimny would be the great foundation auto. We now convert high quality, very low mileage Suzuki Jimny’s to pickups employing the best high quality, manufacturing unit designed and manufactured components. We hope you agree that we offer the best Suzuki Jimny Pickup on the industry.
The blue illustration noticed listed here is the shop’s very first conversion on a new Jimny. According to Farmer’s Weekly, Shropshire Quads orders the manufacturing unit-manufactured kit that was designed for Suzuki from Austria and is the sole distributor and installer in the United Kingdom. Somebody in New Zealand is running a very similar procedure. As noticed in the photographs, the kit can only be installed when the rear portion of the Jimny is chopped off.
The kit features a steel rear bulkhead panel that is outfitted with a heated rear monitor. Plastic side moldings easy out the conversion into the mattress, which is built of stainless steel and aluminum. The rear tailgate is detachable, and Shropshire Quads says the kit utilizes robust significant-high quality latches. A recessed gas filler is mounted with solid aluminum and observed on the driver’s side. As this is a conversion meant for labor, it can be requested with a 1-inch carry or a three-inch carry. For added utility, the Jimny can be equipped with flotation tires or scaled-down all-terrain tires.
The Jimny was by now cool, and having 1 on the farm sounds like a pleasurable way to do chores. Now all the trucklets have to have are some very retrolicious entire body graphics.
