We received a great report from Planetisuzoo Member Jason E. He has indeed "Gone Farther" with his 86 Isuzu Trooper. Read his report on the event below, and be sure to take a glimpse at the movies that he sent in of the event.
"2004 will be the 4th year in a row that I'll take my 86 Trooper to the Plymouth Township Firemans Mudbog. The first year I didn't make it through the mud, but nobody else did either. I beat the crap out of it during the tuff truck run and got 3rd place.
The second year, I made it through the mud and scored a 3rd place trophy then beat the crap out of it again during the tuff truck run but no trophy there.
The third year I made it through the mud, no trophy, but I did get some footage. Then I ran the tuff truck and came in 1st! ...no footage of that though
The first pic is of the "custom" exhaust -- up through the floor, into an empty freon tank, then two pipes out through the corners of the roof. We poured tranny fluid down the pipes which explains all the smoke on the mpeg I sent you.
The 86 Isuzu Trooper will not die!
This year you better believe I'll get some footage of it all. Trophies or not you know I
m gonna have some fun."
We believe you Jason, and encourage you to send in footage of this year's event!
