My New Trooper II

and in Venezuela as Isuzu Caribe 442.)

So I finally got a newer one. This one is from 1987.
It has hardly any rust. Compared to the other one which
had a broken frame at the point where the right
torsionbar was connected to it.

The engine is a C 223 with 5 speed transmission.
The engine is equiped with a K&N air filter.
It has an LSD (Limited Slip Differential) in the rear
and automatic locking hubs in the front.

The bull-bar is mounted on top of the bumper.

I took the wheels and tyres from the old one. )*
Looks pretty cool I guess.
(The spare is original Isuzu.
The others ones seem to came from a Toyota Landcruiser)
)* Finally replaced the original Isuzu wheels with BFGoodrich T/A's.
The big ones fitted nice on the old Isuzu but not on this one.
The new Trooper II seems to have a wider track.

It is a pity the winch is gone.
Does anyone now which brand or type of winch was mounted here ?

Isuzu Trooper
Anyone a suggestion about front shocks with additional coil springs ???
I really think the front is quite soft on suspension. Just like the old one.
Anyone tried to modify this? I'm not talking about replacing the torsion bars.

The dash looks similar to the old one but is different in most of the details.

If anyone would like to see pictures from other details of
this Trooper, just ask and I will add them.
