That setup should pull lots of air in, I would think it fix the over heating. The winch bumper blocks a lot of airflow. Send you a PM about the ABS delete setup. Did you connect the two front brake lines to one master line and other master line to rear line at ABS delete? Pull the ABS fuse and bleed well too finish? Anything to do to ABS light in dash?

Correct sir. You will need M10x1.0 items, I ordered mine on ebay here:

and here

You might be able to source them locally.

Thanks for size M10 x 1.0 on brake setup and answer. Going to try to have that done by end of summer. Looks like that flat bar of steel will strengthen the track bar mount.

I can't really comment on an improvement given the smaller calipers/rotors I have and larger tires. I was thinking about finding a larger bore master cylinder to compensate.

I was wondering about that, I'm getting an '02 roller body/chassis with all the brakes and such on it. When did they go to the "better" brakes. Why don't they fit on out spindles again?

Are the calipers acutally smaller on the old style spindle, or is it a situation of double vs single piston?

The new style calipers are twin piston and the rotor is larger in diameter to accommodate the unit bearing. There is no way to modify either system using new/old parts, it's an all of nothing deal unless you find something from a different model that will bridge the gap. Unfortunately Isuzu was too cheap to completely re-engineer the braking system from the 1st gen Rodeos. I think the easiest fix would be a larger-bore master cylinder to improve feel and power, although I'm not sure what size the OEM unit is and which cylinders fit.

Looks really good.

I had wondered who your fab guy was. I've thought about contacting Orion about a few things for my rodeo (mostly suspension related) I assume they do that kind of stuff? I could also have a skid made to improve the front of my truck a little bit.

Was looking on e-bay under superchargers and found a powerdyne BD-11 supercharger and intake pipe. Would have to make aluminum bracket plate to install with a tensioner on front of engine. Supercharger and intake pipe bid was at $1147.00 so far. Don't know if it would work or RIGHT size for the 3.5 ISUZU engine. A lot of fab work ,but would be great for pulling the extra weight your Rodeo has now. :idea:

It would take someone hacking my ECU to get the fueling right. The DI has 10.3:1 compression which further complicates the issue. I have no complaints with the amount of power I have now, It's just about perfect although I could always use more low-end torque.
In other news, I got a geat deal on a gently used set of ARB 9" LEDs for the bumper. I'm not sure how I will repurpose my current 9" rectangles but I'll find a use for them.

Yes ,you are right. Compression too high at 10.3to1. I remember no more van 9.1 max. I would do it ,but my wife would kill me.HAHA Like the lights too.

It would probably accommodate 3-4lbs of boost for 50hp or so. Remember, it runs a higher compression ratio by virtue of exact fueling. A port-injected motor is still pretty stupid when trying to determine how much fuel actually reached the cylinder.

no new updates, rodeo is 1200 miles away in storage in the care of my brother. I'm hoping to make it back up there in November for a Moab trip and to possibly ferry it home to San Antonio. Here's the last pic I have of it from then end of June, headed out to a track day:

Is this due to the broken tie rod from down in Zions?

16s? DAM, that's going to take some work to get those to fit up in the engine bay. You are re-tubing the HPD44 similar to mine?

I assume Robb is doing this? It sounds like a lot of work. I hope it turns out ok. Other then the Artec truss, this sound very similar to my setup.

Can't wait to see the progress.

That's correct however some life items arose and the build plans had to be shelved. I'll revisit these items once I have the truck moved down to Texas this summer. In the meantime I'm going to bandaid its current issues and have it ready for ZuZoo in May.

So here's a quick recap of the past few months and where this project has been.
In early November of '16 I took a trip to the maze district of canyonlands with a few guys from a local 4x4 group. Prior to departing I adjusted my front and rear bumpstop lengths prevent contact with the rear shocks and to keep the front from riding on them as frequently. I also installed new rear rotors and calipers due to the passenger side sticking/dragging.
Image
Image
This worked well although I wasn't able to fully test the range of wheel travel with just a floor jack. I also rigged up a few other items including the ARB awning room, relocated the plate, and added ramps and a trasahroo to the spare

The trip started out great however the folks I was traveling with decided to try to make up some time and travel a bit faster than I was comfortable with along the lead-in trail.
Image
Like a fool I decided to keep pace. I came up over a small hill, noticed the wash out on the other side too late, and broke an inner tie rod. I did not have a spare, we were about 72 miles from paved road and another 150 or so from the nearest autoparts store. The gentlemen I was with wanted to leave it and head for town in search of parts however I knew we stood very little chance of finding any Isuzu parts in stock after 5pm on a Saturday in remote southeastern Utah. Instead, I opted to remove the broken rod, use a series of straps to triangulate the knuckle, drive the 72 miles out using one-wheel steering, and have AAA tow me 200 miles to the nearest town that had a chance of having parts Monday morning.
