The huge benefit I found with the swap was restoring some of the power band back since I'm running 32" tires. I can reliably run in 5th gear again while with the 32s and the old 4.56s installed, the power was just gone in 5th so I was almost always having to run in 4th.

Are the Aussie Lockers still an option through Independent4x anyone?
Only way to get one as far as I know is through the company Lokka, which is pretty sketchy. I ordered one back in early June, and they haven't responded to any of my emails. A quick look at their facebook page shows people waiting over 6 months to get theirs. I guess I just have to wait it out

I got my Lokka last year for $300. It took a little while to get it. Came from Australia.
Had it installed in the front and I absolutely love it.

WOW, I just read the entire thread, all 562 posts. Respect
giusedtobe
for sticking with it and not throwing a stick of dynamite at it. Amazing also all the feedback from the awesome board members and all your help and advise. Turned out to be a nice Trooper and you really have done a lot to it. Long journey!
I spend a lot of time alone way out in the back country where there is no cell signal, and that is one of the reasons or the main reason I did the weber conversion and ecm delete. Keeping it simple and serviceable.
If I look around at junkyards for a G80, are there different Isuzu models and years I should ask about?

Thanks or condolences for reading all that!

Sadly I am experiencing a new problem. On the highway the other day it lost power. Just felt like it was running on three cylinders. I pulled off the highway and it shut off. Started back up but I had to rev it to keep it running. Was not hot and oil pressure was good so I limped it home and parked it. Will not have a chance to trouble shoot it until this weekend but no check engine light or anything. Other than a plug wire breaking down or something else electrical I am not sure what it would be. Any ideas before I dig in?

Haha, no - it was interesting and I sure admired your persistence and patience.
This happened to me once. Turned out to be a crack in the ignition coil. An easy fix. I hope yours is as simple of an issue. If your coil is on the valve cover, that little ground wire going to the firewall is important too.

Any change in noise? When my EGR tube broke (on the highway) mine lost power, but picked up exhaust noise. Just start by giving a good visual inspection - could be something as simple as a hose off or wire off. Dennis

Thanks gents. No there was no real difference in the exhaust note. I'll check it out this weekend. Just thought it was weird that it did not throw a CEL.
