    Hi I just acquired a 2 door trooper from Cebu last friday. How do I know if its the big horn model? The engine is 4JG2 and it has equipped with an intercooler. What year did this come out?

    How much will it cost to install a dashboard from the newer model of trooper's? yung lahat lahat na including the switches, gauges etc..

    Jai,
    i own a Local version 1997 Isuzu Trooper
    CBU from japan, i'd say it one of bext 4x4 i.ve driven.

    to be exact on what year you have. check the VIN tapos search mo topic na may VIN explanation dito sa isuzu forum.

    did you know that your trooper and the vehicross share the same platform.

    ok di ba.

    where can I find the VIN?
    actually im quite happy with it so far, except for the loud engine noise its a good vehicle. I bought it in replacement of my lancer 1997 because I go to Anilao every weekend and needed a good truck that could haul gear and drive thru some rough road.

    jai, there is so much data posted already on this board regarding your rig. What yo can do is do a search for "big horn" or "Trooper". Use to own a 5 door unit which is a LWB or Long Wheel Base, yours is SWB or Short Wheel Base. ENjoy!

    Is there shop / person in manila who specializes in converted troopers? I have 2 problems with the trooper although minor only, that needs to be address.

    1. A warm air emits from the foot area when I reach around 2,000 rpm and a light smell of exhaust smoke is noted.

    2. The thermostat on the climate control is not functioning properly. Its keeps turnng off the compressor even if the air from the fan is warm.

    Problem #1: May butas yan na hindi natakpan ng mabuti.

    #2: Dalhin mo kay Joseph sa MultiNational. 15K binayad ko for a complete overhaul ng A/C. Complete pati wirings.

    Hi Gary,
    Can you give me the exact address and contact number of Multinational? How long did it take them to do the overhaul and wiring? Did your trooper come with the electronic climate control thing too?
    thanks

    Big Horn is the Trooper's name in Japan. :D

    Kimpoy will happily enlighten you on its virtues.
