This has to be the first Maruti Jimny 5-door in the world in a 2-door pickup conversion. It is insane to witness just how far some car owners are willing to go to make their vehicles stand out from the crowd. Jimny is one of the most prominent lightweight off-roaders in the world. It has a rich legacy of over 50 years. However, it was always on sale in a 3-door guise. For the Indian market, there is a 5-door version for the very first time. Let us take a look at the details of this latest modification on the SUV.

This video comes from Thisisgabru on YouTube. This is the same vlogger who showcased the new Jimny being cut into two parts for customizations. Today, we are able to see the results of that stunt. Almost every mechanical component of this Jimny has been altered. This includes things like suspension setup, lift kit, tyres, wheels, joints, bumpers, interior, shafts, and more. Almost all of these components have been imported from international markets. That has given a unique appearance to this Jimny whose rear doors and the bootlid have been omitted.

Even on the inside, the car modifier has installed a roll cage. He mentions that the owner of this Jimny won’t use it on the road for daily activity. Instead, in fact, this will go into rallies and other related competitions only. Therefore, the airbags have also been deactivated and a roll cage has been installed inside the cabin. Moreover, they will also redesign the cargo compartment with more rods and a place to keep air compressors and other components. All in all, this has to be the most unique Jimny you will ever see.

This modification presents several issues. Firstly, all interior and door parts were removed, impacting their quality upon reinstallation. Factory-made parts are typically superior, and reassembling them may result in potential rattling noises. Secondly, splitting the body weakens its structure, as a significant portion is removed, compromising the vehicle’s overall strength. This alteration can adversely affect driving dynamics due to changes in weight distribution. Lastly, the warranty becomes void, eliminating any coverage. We strongly advise our readers against attempting such modifications. Still, if it is for a definitive project and you don’t wish to drive on the road, then you can go ahead with it.
