*** Above picture is "pre-lift" - I've taken it off road twice since completing the suspension rebuild and locker install. Everything works flawlessly. It's not abused and built like a tank. The body and underbody is well armored and protected.

[img]http://gitout.com/apics/92isuzu/forsale/camping.JPG[/img]

I drive the truck nearly everyday. And it's been on numerous camping trips including three trips to Bend, Canada Mt Whistler, Estacada, and Nearby Mountains. The truck has never let me down and runs very well.

[img]http://gitout.com/apics/92isuzu/forsale/camp2.JPG[/img]

Exedy Clutch Kit (complete) & New Flywheel (not installed) - $250

This has been a fun project and solid truck. I'm very happy with how everything turned out. Please realize as with any older vehicle it does take maintenance. The clutch is getting worn and will need to be replaced soon. I've already purchased all the parts for the job and will include them with the truck. Also, there is an exhaust leak near the manifold. Otherwise, just keep up on routine maintenance. This is a push rod engine so there's no timing belt to change and it's so simple. Throttle body injection with lots of room to access spark plugs and everything else. Alternator is at the top of the engine. Much nicer than the new vehicles.

My relatives have a 1992 Isuzu Rodeo (same drive train and chassis) and they have over 260k on the original engine and transmission. I've seen these trucks with over 350k miles. These are tough trucks if you take care of them. Just as good as a Toyota Tacoma Truck, Nissan, Ford Ranger. I'm selling to downsize to 1 vehicle. It's a tough decision but that's life.

** ARB Roof Tent & Thule Bed Rack & High Lift Jack not included. **

Total Maintenance/Upgrades: $12,182 + Original Purchase Price: $2,000 = $14,182 Spent
Selling Price = 1/2 of Upgrade Cost ($6,000) + Original Purchase $2,000 =

$8,000 Cash - [PM for number]

Located in Portland, OR

Discount $1,000 without the Winch & Optima Battery
Discount $2,000 without the ARB Lockers & Compressor (you pay to swap 3rd members)
* I'd prefer selling altogether though.

Just add it... The Rodeo 3.1L and possibly the Trooper v6 2.8L uses the same system. Just need a junk yard run.

Geeezzz... haven't you heard of Southern air conditioning yet. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />

Just roll down your windows. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/notooth.gif" alt="" />

On second thought, maybe it's just the grey pickups that don't have a/c... 6 years and counting with no a/c. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />
