Yes this country is a beautiful place. There are miles of back roads to explore. That is one of the main reasons I got this truck. Actually the bridge isn't stone, it is huge old logs split down the middle. More pics coming of a waterfall we got to see...

Super cool rig and surroundings! 8)

My wife and I went to Costa Rica in 2006/07, or something like that. I only remember that it was on the Nicoya peninsula. It was really cool. I wish I had had a 4x4 rig when I was there for a visit.

Here in Chile we have some really nice offroading too though. Maybe one day I'll get around to taking some vid a photos too.

The amigo is looking awesome and the bumper looks really nice. With it all painted and on, it looks almost exactly what I was wanting to do for mine. Looking at how what you have done makes me want to get out and work on mine but the cold is making it a little difficult right now. Maybe a weird question but could you make a drawing of the plates needed to do the bumper with dimensions?

Those are some awesome pictures man. The amigo is looking awesome, you have put a lot of dedication into it and it certainly looks that all the hard work is paying off!. We should plan a trip over where you live and do some wheeling. I just saw you had replied to my build thread and I had totally forgotten about it, sorry about that.

Your bumper turned out great :thumbright: What winch are you getting? What other plans do you have for it?

You should be proud!! Messing with these Isuzus is a true Passion of Love that Few Understand. To most, Isuzu is a funny sounding name of a box sold by a lying salesman back in the 90's.(Joe)
But to People like us who partisipate in this Forum.... Isuzu is a life style, a way of life, a way we show people we have Style and appreciation in quality.
Dude, your hard work has paid off. You should be Proud! Because their are a lot of guy proud of you.

Keep up the great work!!!!

Just behind the wheel? That is sanded to eliminate orange peel and haven't buffed it yet. If you mean the corner just behind the light it's a shadow, but that fender is also slighty out of shape there.
