Smile [PHOTOS] My first (4x4!) SAM ! Please help!

Helloo!

I bought it today in Reunion Island, 5500€, 70.000km. Very good condition. All papers, leaflets, even the plastic recommendations in front of the transfer box, sticked to the carpet. I'm super happy. My first ever 4x4!

Well, I had a toyota Yaris... and this is my first ever 4x4 : a long - time child and adult dream !
I have always loved 4x4, I'm 33y/o and have been dreaming on camel trophy, toyota bj-fj 4x, 6x... and wanted recently to sell the Yaris for a jimny.. but there is something with all that plastic that i dislike.

I presume that the motor (mai 2001) is not the (late 2001, final motor of the petrol jimny) g13b, isn't it? Which motor code is it? (not g13b i think, and absolutely not m13a of Jimny)

What do you think of this motor? Is it reliable?

There is a very slight leak of oil on the transfer case and on the motor, but very slight.

I plan to keep it in the best possible condition: there is absolutely no rust.

Now: pictures!

Note: here climate is tropical: soft top is perfect (Réunion Island is a french island, situated south of Mauricius, East of madagascar: a french department in a tropical zone).

Thanks!
I saw, with the tropical temperature of 35degrees celsius, traffic jams and big accelerations, that the stock temp jauge went a bit higher than the middle, say 60 to 65 percent. Is it normal? What could lower it: change coolant liquid? Other? Thanks!
