Portland Oregon trooper fanatics?

Postby TrooperPdx » Mon Oct 29, 2018 7:38 pm

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.

Picked it up two weeks ago, $500, added a lift, 285/75's, just got it aligned today. My first off road adventure is this weekend. I've been trying to get everything ready for the Gambler 500 :)

I'm in Beaverton/Portland area

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)

Hey there, I'm in Portland Metro area (Clackamas County) and would love to meet up with some first gen trooper mechanics to troubleshoot and also to help me determine what I can remove / reroute / etc. in order to improve reliability. Shoot me PM for contact info.

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.

I live in SE Portland (Felony Flats) and would love to meet up with some fellow Trooper owners. I’ve had my 2000 5 speed Trooper for about 3 years now and absolutely love it. Any of the OG’s in this thread want to organize something?? Let me know!

My rig is just on the street as of last night. There's a couple trails way up in the roaring river wilderness outside of ripplebrook that would be fun to rally out before the snow flies.

Wish I would have got the contact info for a first gen trooper guy that came and bought something from me on craigslist a few years back. He had done the 2.3 carb swap, smog delete, all the fun mods. Would love to check it out in person!

Just got the 95 Trooper running after a long struggle with valve cover gaskets. Would love to get out in the woods in rural Clackamas.

Just bought my first Trooper last night and brining it home today. 1994 LS 5spd, very high miles and needs an alternator, already ordered. Any tips for installing it?. Looking forward to some back road trips all over Oregon and Washington. Side note, only the driver window works, is that a switch thing or is the 3 dead window motors? Thanks
