A Trusted Friend. 358,000 Miles And Has Never Let Me Down. — The Trooper does one thing like few other cars can; IT KEEPS GOING. Mine has the Chevy V6 with the 3500 lb towing package. Nothing stops it. Off road abilities like few others. Built sensibly and thoroughly. Even when a heater hose got ripped from the firewall, it still took me 135 miles home without overheating or even needing to stop for water! The Isuzu Trooper truly thrives on neglect and abuse. Not the fastest thing on the block, but will mount 33 inch tires on it stock, and can drive through 3 feet of water no problem. Pretty good cargo space in back. Mine is creeping up on 400,000 miles. The drivetrain is all original. Burns no oil, and just passed California emissions test again with no major engine work. I have grown to love it! UPDATE: Now it is at 391,000 miles, and I just towed a 9,000 lb trailer coast-to-coast (3000 miles) with no mechanical problems whatsoever. I took it to a truck stop and had it weighed on their certified scale- gross weight was 12,940 lbs! Tongue weight was 1600 lbs. Trailer had brakes, but they were not hooked up. And yes, speeds dropped as low as 18 mph up some of the big grades, but it did not stop. NOTICE: I DO NOT RECOMMEND THAT ANYONE ATTEMPT TO DO THIS. TOWING CAPACITY SHOULD NOT BE EXCEEDED FOR ANY REASON.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The name is very fitting-nothing stops a Trooper! Armor plated chassis tough as a tank. Does whatever you ask of it-without complaint. Always starts.

Cons: Fuel economy could be a little better. Zero to 60 could be timed with a sundial.

Isuzu 4x4 — the performance its really good, the 3.2 DIS engine have the torque to off road and the acceleration for a higway, the interior its normal, the exterior i made custom parts, the fun in off road its really something out of this planet.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: the engine its excellent

Cons: no rason

In 4wd It Climbed Like Nothing Else, On The Street The Thing Sucked — This car is one of my personal favorites. It has good space, comfortable seats, good handleing, and good gas mileage. One of the only bad things is that I have to do alot of work on it when i first got it, but when the work was done it was great on and off road i dont remember a time that i have even come close to getting stuck So, it is a fun car, I guess you could say

Pros: great off-road

Cons: small engine no pickup

Actually An '86 — I loved this vehicle. Terrible on road performance, pretty good off. Too bad I blew the head gasket. Wish I could get another one in decent shape.

Pros: 4 wheel drive,  5speed and who cares if you tear it up.

Cons: easy to blow head gasket, no power.

Want 4wd Then Look No Further. — Built for pulling and not getting stuck these are great vehicles. Couldn't get it stuck anywhere even with bald tires. Not a looker by any means but you don't buy them for that. Not fast but fast enough when you're sat that high. Cloth interior. Steel wheels as standard. I had the 2.6 petrol. Great all terrain.

Pros: Built like a tank.

Cons: Not good on fuel.
