a summary of what we added to the car

The first modification was the Old Man Emu 20mm suspension kit made by the Australian company ARB. In addition to the lift, it gives us increased driving comfort and significantly contributes to maintaining road grip. It is necessary that the individual elements of the kit are individually matched to the car. With this in mind, we recommend the purchase and installation in a workshop specializing in 4×4 vehicles.  Official ARB website

In addition to the suspension, we bought new tires. The choice fell on the Yokohama Geolandar A / T G015 in size 235/70/16 with white inscriptions. This model is very quiet on the road, has good winter properties and works great even on wet surfaces. In muddy terrain, it becomes clogged quickly and it takes a long time to clean again. We travelled about 50,000 kilometres on these tires and we can honestly recommend them.  product link*

Steel Rims

In addition to the new tires, we purchased 7 × 16 5 × 114.3 and ET +20 steel rims from Snake4x4. A positive ET moves the tire further out. Compared to the original rims, it is about 4 cm. The car has a wider wheelbase and of course looks much better.  product link*

Roof rack

Another big upgrade was the new roof rack. The choice fell on the Slimline II model from the South African company Front Runner Outfitters. Not only is it very visually attractive, it can also be perfectly extended with various modifications. The roof rack measures 1762 mm x 1255 mm. The package includes new roof rails. Compared to the original, they are much flatter and have more attachment points.  product link*

Roof-top Tent

The tent we chose is 130 cm wide and 240 cm long. It is also the lowest (216 mm) and lightest on the market (43 kg). This is the Front Runner Feather-Lite roof tent. The space is sufficient for two adults and can be extended with an additional tent. Windows provide an unrestricted view in all directions – roof windows can be opened or closed as needed to fresh air, sun or a sky full of stars.  product link*

The awning we chose is the Front Runner Easy-Out model. When unfolded, it is 1.4m wide and 2.1m long – the perfect size for smaller vehicles. Additionally, it is resistant to water and UV rays. Folds up and unfolds in less than a minute. A clear recommendation as a modification to all outdoor enthusiasts. A. great Suzuki Grand Vitara 2 modification. product link*

Skid Plates

Due to the susceptibility to damage to the gear reducer and radiator, it was clear to us that we would have to purchase a skid plate for the Grand Vitara. The choice fell on a set of 6 mm thick aluminium covers. They use factory-made holes and threads in the vehicle frame. This is actually the most important Suzuki.

The 40-inch FX1000-CB SM spotlight from Front Runnter Outfitters contains 40 durable, high-performance LEDs with OSRAM technology. Illumination is possible up to a distance of 635 m with a brightness of 8,000 lumens. The ECE certificate allows the use of an additional headlamp for use on public roads.  product link*

2DIN Radio

Music is an essential part of any successful short trip. When choosing the 2DIN radio, we were guided by two main features. The radio should have good sound quality and the ability to connect the phone to the Google Maps application. We chose the Sony XAV-AX100 (Android mobile phone) as the perfect radio for our purposes. The Sony XAV-AX1000 radio can be connected to the iOS Iphone system.  product link*

The fully synthetic Motul 8100 X-cess 5W40 oil is dedicated to gasoline and diesel engines. First of all, the oil we choose significantly reduces fuel consumption and extends the life of the drive unit. Due to the unique chemical formulation, the temperature and pressure of the oil are reached much faster than when using similar products.  product link*
