old suzuki jimny modified Q&A Review

Would it be possible that one day, when society becomes more accustomed to electric vehicles, individual owners will understand how to rebuild their version of an engine?

Interestingly BEVs are both extremely simple and extremely complex. If you want to make a BEV it is relatively easy just buy: A motor. A motor controller. A battery pack. A battery charger. A donor ICEV. Then you pull out the old ICE and related parts like the fuel tank and exhaust then fit the new bits. With the right resources it could be done in a day. Now if you are more hard core you could make any of the above 5 items from scratch. It is a lot more work but very doable. In my case I would like to convert my Suzuki Jimny from a 4x4x1 to a 4x4x4. For that I would need 4 custom motor controllers. I have made motor controllers before so I could do that. I think a lot of people who like making custom cars are going to have a lot of fun in future as the above parts become more commonly available, However if you are thinking of modifying an existing BEV it could be come a very difficult task. For a simple BEV like a Nissan Leaf it is probably doable but for a cutting edge one like a Tesla it would be difficult. The Tesla uses some complex and tricky things with their technology to achieve the long range and high performance from a modest size battery pack. By modest I mean in kWh, not physical size. Reworking any of the stuff in a Tesla will not be for the faint hearted.

Which SUVs are rugged enough for serious off road use?

The Suzuki Samaurai is an early variation of the Jimni. In the 1990’s it gained a lot of grudging respect from the online Toyota Land Cruiser gang because it could outperform their heavily modified rigs on hill climbs. The things are still around in Canada, often salvaged and made into jury-rigged deer-hauling tractors for backwoods hunting camps. A colleague drove one with totally bald tires on safari in Kenya, and another in the Brazilian rain forest. The Toyota FJ40 series of Land Cruisers are by definition serious offroad vehicles. Any I have been in are too slow and thirsty for the highway. Early Land Rovers of the model found in ,The Gods Must Be Crazy ,are too rugged for anything but offroad use. BTW if you have not seen that very dated film, it remains a comic classic. In fairness, the Land Rover/Range Rover series are offroad stars. Military-style Jeeps remain so viable as offroad vehicles that Mahindra has started producing them again under licence, only with diesel engines and better transmissions. Insurgent militias across the globe seem to prefer the Toyota HiLux pickup. The 4Runner functions equally well across long distances and rough terrain. In 2009 I sold a gently-used 1996 Toyota Rav4 5 speed to a woman buying forty of them through her embassy to ship home to a sub-equatorial country in Africa whose name escapes me. The Rav4s go to rural nurses for use on their rounds in the back country. She and her brother explained that they are cheap, simple, and every village mechanic in Africa has the parts and knowledge to fix them. A buddy bought a cottage on a large island on the Rideau Lakes in Ontario. To get to the lake he drives 375 miles of highway to a ferry, pulls it across the waterway by hand, then drives 3/4 miles of gravel and then a mile of rocks and mud. His vehicles? The first was a GM Jimmy, which did pretty well until it got stuck. When it died he bought a 2001 Tundra 4WD, extended cab. He absolutely loves this truck. It carries a huge load and its only mishaps have been a punctured tire from a stump and one tree limb through the air conditioner’s radiator. One reason that I still have my 2002 4 cylinder 5 speed Tacoma is its prowess in snow and rough terrain. I discovered while ice fishing that the light truck with good tires will in fact plane over decently-compacted deep snow, if approached in 4LO, 4th gear, at about 4000 rpm. This ability has gotten me off the lake on occasion and also into a few deeply-drifted driveways. It will also tow a ton on a trailer into situations which leave full-sized pickups stranded at the gate. In my area farmers don’t seem to have a favourite for use on their property, though the old Dodge and General Motors pickups seem to run a long time while towing heavy loads of seed and cattle on trailers, and I don’t see many Fords.

Are there off-road cars? I'm looking for a car (not SUV or pickup) that can be used for rough terrain or that can be prepared for this purpose. I don't like SUVs or pickups.

“SUV” is actually a marketing buzzword. There is an entire spectrum covered by this term, from small and tall unibody hatch-backs to large, body-on-frame trucks with 5+ seats. You must draw yourself a line in this spectrum and decide from where you start “not liking”. Some criteria would help. For example: is Porsche Cayenne an SUV? Why do you not like it? Is it too expensive, not capable enough in offroad? Does it send the wrong message to the world when you drive it? What about a VW Touareg? Is it still an SU? Could it be considered a full offroader if it is equipped with low range gearing and proper tyres? What about Toyota Prado? Still an SUV? Do you hate it for the same reasons as the models above? In my book, a propper offroader has: a (relatively) soft suspension with long travel and the ability to cross the axles. good body angles (at least 25 degrees ) for tackling high obstacles. An air intake that is high enough not to let water into the engine while fording some 50cm of water. Additional low range gearing There are many models which may be classified as Sport Utility that fulfill the above. Other models trade comfort and luxury for off-road ability, such as the Land Rover Defender, or the Jeep Wrangler. These are probably cheapest to modify and run in the rough. Other models that I consider proper offroaders are: Mitsubishi Shogun/Pajero, Nissan Patrol, Nissan Pathfinder, Suzuki Jimny. Let's not forget the Mercedes G-klass, which is quite capable offroad, with the proper engine. Buying one with the 6.3 V8 from AMG would instantly lose all off-road status and add an impressive, blingy vibe. There are some models “inbetween”, such as the Prado, the Suzuki Vitara (old models, as the new ones are just “cross-overs”), maybe Nissan X-Trail, Mitsubishi Outlander. Other models are considered quite luxurious SUVs, but may be quite capable offroad, such as the Touareg (when equipped with low-range and the pneumatic suspension). I don't know what to say about Range Rover and Toyota Land Cruiser (the big V8). They appear to offer both performance and comfort, albeit at a premium, so they are in the subclass of Luxury Off-Road SUV. And then there are the SUV-only: Audi Q7, BMW X5, X6, Hyundai Santa Fe, Subaru Tribeca, Mazda CX7, CX9, Ford Edge,… Let's not forget the cross-overs (which aren't half bad, BTW): VW Tiguan, Audi Q5, Q3, BMW X1, X3, Nissan Qashqai, Mitsubishi ASX, Ford Kuga, Dacia Sandero,… For a proper offroader, easy to modify and cheap to maintain, just go on Youtube, search for offroad videos and start taking notes. Good luck!

Would you purchase your teen’s first vehicle or would you expect them to save up the money and buy their own? What is your reasoning behind this?

If you buy the vehicle there is a chance that you will buy wisely. Okay, none of us are automobile experts but at least you will buy one that is probably safer than the one they pick out. They will tend to go with street-cred more than anything else and that can mean lowered suspension, noisy exhaust and who knows what tweaks that could render it uninsurable. Yes, you will be labelled boring but often boring will save their life. Let them use their money to insure it and to add whatever they feel to it. But make sure it doesn’t invalidate the insurance. A change from recognised factory specifications can mean problems. If they kill someone in a modified vehicle and the insurance does not pay out then someone will will pay for it and this could mean losing your house. My first son wanted a motorcycle when he was 16. I allowed him to do so and I helped him restore it. It took a year. By that time he wanted a car as he was old enough to learn to drive one (UK). I did not stop him buying a motorcycle as I knew he would do so anyway. By allowing him to buy a cheap wreck that would take him a year to make it roadworthy helped to keep him off it. He sold it for a profit and he could then buy a car. He bought several wrecks that started to cost him more than they were worth. They all ended up trashed. My second son was bought a mini, that I spent several months working on to make sure it was good. If you know how to do it then you will save a lot of money. If you don’t know how to do it then take it to a reputable garage to do the necessary. Have them change the shocks, tires and brakes. Anything to ensure it stops (in a straight line) and corners without tramping (the garage will know what that means). Whatever way you look at it, somewhere along the line, you will be paying for it. Either to drag it out of a field or to replace the clutch and gearbox that had been bottomed when going over a small bump. At least that’s what you will be told. They are going to do this in any car, whether boring or not. This will give you a clue to what kind of car they really need. In most cases, a WWII Willys jeep is probably your best bet as, by the time they go to university, it will have appreciated in value, unlike most other vehicles (that’s a fact). Incidentally, it is road-tax free in the UK and insurance is not that expensive with specialist military/classic car insurers. As for street-cred…think about it! But be prepared to pay upwards of 15000 GBP. A Hotchkiss M301 is a Willys built under licence by France and has a longer life. Have disk brakes put on it (you will not spoil it) and it will do 60 MPH and 21mpg. Failing that a Suzuki Jimny jeep with soft-top. A new shape Mini is a pretty good bet but will set you back 3000 GBP minimum for a half-decent one. Your money, their life, your choice. If you love your children maybe this is the one present you should need to buy.

Do Tesla owners miss driving their old cars?

I have a Suzuki Jimny 4WD and a Tesla Model 3 Performance on order. To be honest I would not have brought the Tesla if Suzuki did a BEV version of the Jimny but apparently Suzuki have no road map to BEV off roaders. The Tesla will be my daily drive as it is a far better street vehicle but I will keep the Suzuki for offroad use and towing. Yes, I know the Tesla would be a far better towing vehicle but I don’t do much towing so see no need to modify the Tesla for the job. The bottom line is they do different roles and I would miss the Suzuki if I sold it even though I expect to use the Tesla much more. Time and money permitting I plan to do a BEV conversion of the Suzuki. I would consider the CyberTruck but here in New Zealand it would be too wide for local offroad tracks so the Jimny (ICEV or BEV) will pee all over the CyberTruck for going places. If I lived in the USA that would be a different story.
