Howdy Yall!!! Little curious if there are any trooper fanatics out here in Portland. I've been in and out of the trooper game for a couple years now. Still driving the same old trooper though (plus or minus a few motors). Curious if there is any trooper meet ups or if its time to start one. I see quite a few on the roads and with that always come a head nod or a peace sign. Give me a shout if you live in portland and you want to show off your trooper and talk. If I find enough people and there interested I think it would be cool to do some kind of Isuzu run. Either up the 26 mountain pass (If we get some snow this year) or maybe go the other way on 26 to the coast and take over the beach of gearheart. Let me know if anyones interested.

I'm in the area and having some local Trooper contacts would be great.

I realize this is an old thread but...

I brought in an Isuzu 4x4 camper from Japan and the 5 speed manual transmission went out. It's the same MUA/RMN transmission used in the US except the bellhouse part which is integral to the case is different. If you have the skills to rebuild a transmission or if you want to try and swap a domestic 2.6 or 3.1 with a transmission into it you could have a great rig. I have over 12k into it. Will sell for 4k The 4jb1 diesel in it now smokes on start but pulls strong. The core on the engine is worth over 1k on ebay. Someone with skills could have a 4x4 camper with an fiberglass shell for 5k when all done. You could sell it for over 10k easy.

For a price comparison google jdm sales in seattle, he imports and sells them.

this is the actual rig. I've made some improvements (all new RS5000s and timing belt, brakes, etc)

I know there are quite a few first gen guys in Portland because I have seen a lot of trick first gen's around. Would be fun to rally out somewhere! I'm just about done with my 88, and my kids are getting ready to restore their 89.

Rally would be fun, for sure. My rig is stock, but pretty reliable. I'm a 4x4 noob, but looking forward to learning...easy forestry roads, etc. Regards.
