Well I wasn't sure if anyone would reply with it being an old post..
Thanks for all the replies. Unfortunately the rodeo that I picked up is going to require some work before I take it out
I do most of my testing At butcher Jones -4 peaks area but once I get it back together I'd be willing to meet you guys wherever I'll keep you posted on when I get done

Hi guys, I'm new here. just picked up a '94 trooper with 300k miles... dirt cheap. long term goals: set up a sweet rig. short term goals: get this thing running decent.

Does anyone know a good shop in the Phoenix area that knows their way around an Isuzu?

Thanks

Hey Az people!
I live in Colorado but work in Arizona at least a week or so a month. I am really interested in a road trip to work and wheel! I will keep my eyes on this thread and let you know if I am in or am coming down.

Thanks!

Hello again. I'm looking for a 'motor mentor'. I would like to install a delta cam and timing belt into my Spacecab (4ZE1 2.6L) but am scared to mess with that stuff on an interference engine with no prior experience. I do 90% of my own wrenching, but I know this is a big potential for damage. Anyone willing to help out?

2002 Trooper here in Tucson. Keep thinking of selling for something with better gas mileage, but just love the damn thing and can't let it go. Decided to put some money into it. New tires today, timing belt is the big one I need to deal with. Does anybody know any good shops in Tucson?
