I'm Obsessed With This Suzuki Jimny Pickup Conversion

We've been deeply jealous of the new Suzuki Jimny for some time now. It's a lighter, simpler, cheaper mini-Jeep with Japanese reliability and Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen looks. But it's also unavailable in the U.S., much to the despair of every automotive journalist and the 30 people in this country who would actually buy one new.

Now, the rage is reaching a new level: a company in the U.K. is building new Jimny pickup trucks.

Take the allure of the incredible Toyota FJ70 trucks you can get in Australia and other market, add in modern adorable styling, and make the truck more unique. The result is this conversion, offered by Shropshire Quads in Kidderminster, U.K. The package starts at GBP7,500 (around £9,340), according to MotorTrend.

Frankly, I've never been quite as obsessive over the Jimny as my peers, but even I'm pretty captivated by this adorable little thing.

I don't have any grand delusions of taking it on the rubicon trail, I just like the idea of plodding around a few acres of farmland and throwing grain or firewood in the delightfully mismatched tray.

When every other truck seems to be focused on insane hauling numbers no one uses, it's nice to see a truck that feels honest.

But that's not what American truck buyers seem to be interested in, so it'll have to be admired from afar for now.

See you in 25 years, little Jimny.
