Trooper 3.1 SWB Off road ready to go

Postby RCMike » Fri Aug 11, 2017 11:57 am

Time to shuffle cars/trucks again for me so in order to make space for a new project, the Trooper needs to go.

Just had the MOT, so its MOTed now up to 10th Sept 2018 - no advisories.

I've have the trooper for a year now and i purchased it as a standard Isuzu Trooper 3.1 Citation SWB Diesel, Manual.
114K miles (its only done 2K miles <by me> in the last year)

Registered 03/12/97 - one of the last 3.1's but with the later dash and interior (very much the best of both worlds - especially the 3.1 engine).
UK car - not an import (possibly help with insurance).

This has 2H, 4H, 4L, locked centre 4L - plus a fully functioning (and very good) rear limited slip diff.

It has the shift on the fly system (lever not a button) that allows you to go 2H > 4H up to 62mph and also 4H > 4L at up to 10/15/25mph (depending on which gear you are in) - basically, no need to stop to select 4wd or low range. When in 4WD, the centre is locked (no diff).

It also has Air con - it needs a re-gas, but does work (only slightly cool rather than ice cold).
Plus heated front seats.

Since then, i've done the following,
All oils changed (engine, diffs, transmission, SOTF system, Brakes, clutch)
All filters changed (oil, Air, fuel)
Coolant changed
New Brake discs, pads and calipers all round
New handbrake shoes and handbrake cables
5 x new Cooper SST Pros (265 x 75 x 16) - put on about 10 months ago and done maybe 1.5K miles
New front steering tie rod's
New front ball joints
New front CV boots (orange heavy duty ones)
New engine coolant thermostat
New Diesel fuel tank
New snorkle - fully sealed and tested.
Extended breathers
New rear shocks (Terrafirma +2)
New rear springs (LR +2 springs and Defender spring seats)
Front LED bar (very bright)


So, its a very capable off road ready 4x4 that has been used green laning. This means the body work does have a few scratches, however, the chassis and body has NO RUST (obviously a bit of surface rust on a few bits underneath, but no panel rust, boot rust, sill rust etc - its a very clean truck wrt rust).

It has been lifted (+2 on the suspension and also the tyres give it a lift), the rear ARB has been removed but the front is still there. The rear articulation is really good - coupled with the rear LSD, i've not had any traction issues anywhere i've been. It also rides really well on the road and is a very comfy place to be.

I have removed the carpets - but this is good as you will be able to see there is no rust on the floor etc.

When i bought it, i also bought a new (premium) cam belt, but on inspection (through a cover on the engine) - the one on it looked brand new, so i have the replacement in a box ready for some time in the future (for the future owner).

Price wise - considering this is ready to go with nothing needed and almost new SST Pro tyres all round, i'm looking for £1,999 ono

If it goes to someone on here, i'll leave in the CB (tti 881), coax and stinger aerial - so that would save about £90 if you were to fit it separately.

I'm about 10 mins from J16 M4.
Thanks for looking.
Mike.

Hi Rob, got it via Tapatalk but it doesn't appear on the PM bit of the forum for some reason (i don't think tapatalk's integration is that good).

I've sent a reply via tapatalk so hopefully you got the reply (via tapatalk).

Cheers, Mike.
