    Some of them had a LSD, look for a G80 code on the firewall option plate in the engine compartment.

    The 2.6L doesn't like overheating. If it has been taken care of in that respect it is a very...

    5W30 is what the manual says, although in AZ maybe you want something heavier. Here in MN I do use 5W30 Mobil One.

    Although my Trooper is all built up I agree with you there is no need to go...

    5 grand is plenty to buy a solid Trooper and build it. Tires will be your biggest expense, a Trooper can fit 33s with even just an inch of lift. So rear lift coils, probably from OME, crank the front...

    Very nice. Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions, I'm pretty well versed in 2nd gen Troopers.

    I dunno, haven't shopped for one for a long time. If you ask over on Planet Isuzoo you definitely would get some opinions.

    It is worth noting that a single group 31 has pretty close to the same capacity as a pair of group 34 batteries, as I have seen many folks running for their dual battery systems.

    I went through many hats before I got a Tilley. Now I don't look at new hats anymore, my Tilley is perfect for my needs.

    Don't forget about tree branches. A center roof antenna would get destroyed on some of the woods trails I have been on.

    Depends on what you want to do with it. The Expedition will go almost anywhere you would want to go, but if you are going rock crawling or very tight woods trails the Expedition would struggle.

    Engel told me my fridge usage would average about 1 amp, depending on ambient temps and how often the fridge is opened etc. So figure 12-15 amp-hours for an overnight, maybe less if it is a cool...

    For my Trooper I was contemplating a dual battery system for the fridge and CPAP etc. But ultimately I decided to go simple and got one big battery instead, a 100 amp-hour Group 31 Sears Platinum,...

    Troopers are highly underrated off-road/expo vehicles. Rugged, with tons of room, easy to lift and fit bigger tires to.

    But they do have an Achilles heel or two. First off, the auto trannys are OK...

    They actually make an "expedition" grade spring that is stiffer yet, the 929, which I have on my Trooper. The 919 is a good compromise, I think you'll like it.

    Sounds like something was wrong with your FJC. My last two trips with my FJC got 24.6 and 22.5 mpg (had a tailwind the first time).

    You realize the 4Runner and FJC have essentially the same...

    I can't comment on the dolly design or the way they tie together as I have never used them that way. But I can say the Dewalt boxes themselves are tough as hell.

    Hard to say if that is just bad luck or a trend. Any tire can be punctured in the right (wrong) circumstances.
