Hello everyone, I though I'd take the time to properly introduce myself on this board and share some pics of my 91 Trooper that I bought last September. Soon after I got the truck the head gasket blew and the fuel pump died. I considered selling it, but after some encouragement from some members on this board, I decided to stick with it and have the head gasket replaced. I am glad I did! These trucks are really fun to drive and work on. Since then I've done a lot of other work on it and it's now a pretty reliable vehicle. My goal is to set this truck up for mild overlanding-like trips and for it to be a reliable truck to use while doing fieldwork for my job.
I hope to update this thread from time to time.
