New metal bumper.

It's quite hard to find metal bumpers that would fit the Jimny's narrow body. The aftermarket Jimny bumpers are made of plastic and priced high ($60 each). I found this bumper with the proper width that fits the Jimny. But the mounting of course is much different as this is made for SCX10. So I ordered a generic SCX10 aluminum bumper mount. Fits the CFX's chassis with a little modification on chassis' (widen the screw holes to allow the mount to be screwed). Then I also removed the long triangular bull bar installed on the bumper.

Aluminum bumper mount installed.





Removed this triangular bar



Test fit... Perfect!

Update:

Installed rear bumper with rear fog lamps.

Bought this KYX rear bumper for 313. It was too wide so I cut the side bars to make it shorter. Then installed rear fog lamps.



Painted the lens of the rear fog lamps to clear red and the reflector housing to bright silver.







Installed

Ordered a newer electronic box. Bigger to fit the light switch circuits and it's made of aluminum. Re-arranged the wires too.









Replaced the plastic steering lower link to aluminum too. No more flexing.



Did a some night runs in the street with my friend and my daughter (driving the CC-01)

Got new 1.9 beadlock wheels and tires for Mr. Jimny. $30 for the wheels and $20 for the tires. I love the finish on this one. Looks like sand-blasted finish.



This beadlock mounting toll works great. Mounting beadlock wheels really takes a lot of time and effort. Usually, 15-20 minutes*to mount per wheel. But with the help of this tool, five*minutes*per wheel only.





Mounted.*Looks great!



This set even comes*with center caps.





Love it!

CFX's first outdoor trail at our friend's place. We drove about 130km down south.









I'm very impressed with this little one and keeping up with the 313mm brothers was not a problem at all. I'm glad that aside from looking good,*the upgrades are worth it.
