hello! this is my first Isuzu, but not my first repair journey.
-back story on the trooper-
I was talking with a co-worker about buying a Sammy, as I have lots of experience on Suzuki vehicles...-
-so a few days later he calls me and asks me if I have a top post battery, and if so could I bring it over to his house.
so I grabbed a yellow top I have, went over to his house, and he proceeded to install it in the trooper he had sitting in his driveway.
he had me fire it up, started fine. I let it run for a min or two, then shut it off, threw him the keys, and with that he said '' no'',threw them back at me, and said ''its yours''-
REALLY? yup. borrowed a trailer from work and hauled it home.
1993 trooper ls automatic
oil leaks, under and around engine -needs a good cleaning to find the source(s)
tires n/g, 1 cv boot torn, rear inner door handles not working, smashed rhand mirror lens, cracked windshield, rear abs light on, needs all new steering components, rust around rear wheel wells . lights out in dash, crappy aftermarket cassette deck, squealing belts on engine. damaged headlights, inop foglights.
excellent mechanical condition-it was well maintained.
new shocks all around
all new belts (but still squealing)
clean inside, a/c blows cold, good heater, all options seem to work.
its been sitting at my place for almost a year, debating what to do with it.
