Was facing similar issues and therefore bit the bullet and got ToughDog Suspension Kit installed yesterday (40 mm lift). Have driven the vehicle for more than 100 kms since yesterday.
.
Request you to provide with all the deets on the tough dog suspension. Prices, what all included in the kit et al.

Hey, has this had an impact on the mileage?

Also, do you plan to remove it everytime you send the car for servicing to Maruti to ensure warranty stays in place?

Now it feels like a proper responsive vehicle with EVCX delivering 8 Driving modes with 32 levels of adjustability and a responsive app where you can change modes on the fly - works well in IOS ....I think this is the first addition you should do in case you feel the Jimny lacks power.

The reviews of Ultimate 9 were very good and is also very popular in Australia in the 4X4 segment. I absolutely love the product.

Ajitsingh Tapvasi is the distributor for Ultimate9 in India and his contact number is : 99307 77800‬. He would most certainly have stock available.
Is the installation plug and play? I'm thinking of getting this for my Jimny in Tamilnadu.

Lol! Doubt those bozos will even realise something "not maruti" is in the car.

The entire car is "non maruti" and "all suzuki" for heaven's sake!

I will not uninstall it - maybe just cover it with something and put in into factory mode (one of the modes available). That way the stock behavior of the vehicle returns.

During installation. This will give you an idea of the size as well. You can just mask it or cover it with something - its very small actually and out of sight once stuck.

Stuck under the steering on the left side panel

The device is actually very small - this will give you and idea how small

As Red Liner has rightly said "Doubt those bozos will even realise something "not maruti" is in the car"

Its plug and play with just the module connected to the accelerator module and the wiring routed of the EVC. Its DIY for those slightly technically inclined.

Re: Maruti Jimny Review

Anyone has any thoughts on how to secure the rear floor console (around the handbrake)? Looks like its fitted with a single plug/screw and even a gentle nudge makes it move violently.

Congrats!
Please advise about the insulation dampener. Where did you get it from, the material used, etc.

Thank you!

Re: Maruti Jimny Review

Folks, any ideas for protecting the door cards (interior trim) from scratches? Given the nature of the plastic, it's a matter of time before it accumulates scratches. Is there anything like a protective film for such surfaces?

Re: Maruti Jimny Review

Based on reviews from fellow BHPians in this thread, I also had the user manual printed from Printster.in, and the quality is superb. It feels almost like an OEM manual. I edited the PDF down to 380 pages, excluding the service center contacts since I’m more likely to use Google Maps or the Maruti app for it.


Used the Jimny for scale

Indeed, on my most recent Dehradun-Delhi afternoon drive I was able to get 15.1 (tankful to tankful, MID was 15), while keeping speed at 85 kmph, in our Jimny AT with 215 AT tyres. Driving time was about ten minutes less than Google Maps ETA, so not bad overall.
