Welcome to the zoo Joker. I think I saw these questions under General Discussion I think. Did you get answers to the compatibility questions? Both of these two look to be in good shape. Any frame rust on either one? I'd spend my money on the one that was in the best shape and personally I prefer the looks of the silver one, more of your basic Trooper. Is the 96 a manual or an auto? If it is a manual tranny that would definitely be my choice.

Post up some pictures of whichever one you decide to build under Member Rides so we can all follow what your progress.

Good luck!

Thanks for the Zoo membership. my Troopers are in great shape. My hopes are to use the 96 Trooper for the trails. And the 99 Trooper will be for show and go. Both are auto transmission. Going to build the 96 first. Would like to know for the engine swap from the 99 to the 96. Advice greatly appreciated.

You want to post this up under General Isuzu discussion or Drivetrain Modifications. You will get opinions from more people and advice from guys that have actually done these swaps. You especially are going to want to listen to what some second generation Trooper owners have to say about automatic transmission maintenance and care.
