Essentially, the side and rear sections are almost identical to the regular Jimny. Moreover, one even gets a glimpse of the interior layout.

What We Think
We understand and appreciate the excitement of people who want to customize their vehicles for a unique look. However, it is vital to know that many car modifications don’t follow India’s laws. This could lead to trouble with the police. Because of this, we strongly advise against making big changes to your vehicle. If you still want to customize it, talk to your local Regional Transport Office (RTO) first. If your changes are allowed, they can be noted on your vehicle’s registration papers. Doing this will help you avoid problems with the law in the future.
