    Some people say I have a "short temper"....I see it as swift and assertive reaction to Bull!

    Love the ISUZU product and reading the attachment just reminds me of the fun I had in both the 260 DCs I once upon a time owned.

    Thanks for sharing Sakkie.

    Hi all

    I'm new to the forum and I feel like I've missed out on sooo much... I finally have my very first 4x4 it's an isuzu kb 1800 swb, 1987 year model. I would appreciate any info on the bakkie as I have limited knowledge of them. I am planning a complete rebuild. I would like to go with a lift kit and bigger wheels. Are they very capable offroad bakkies and will the power be sufficient for my planned mods? Much thanks

    Hi all!

    Love this forum and the community.

    I'm a besotted Isuzu Trooper 1984 owner. Problem is it's getting on in years and the suspension and body needs attention.

    Questions:
    1. Are there any vehicles that can supply the parts I'm needing for suspension?
    - upper control arm with bushes and balljoint
    - tie rod ends

    the rest I can source.

    2. Engine conversion.
    I'm sitting with a bullet proof but very thirsty Ford Essex 3.0 petrol engine
    - I'd like to replace with a Isuzu KB250 D-TEQ.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks so much!

    Hi i see the tread has been quiet for some time.
    In the trooper why not go for the 4jb1t its a 2.8 turbo diesel and its fully mechanical so your biggest issue will be engin mountings and flushing of your fuel lines and not sure about the cowling compatibility but adapter plate can fix that
