It seems that in all the bone yards here in town, and in Ark & ms,
every MK1 Trooper carcass is the 4 cyl...even up around nashville
as well..very rarely,have I've seen a 6 banger..unless it was
hit head on...Most of the yards tell me, that the v6's fly outta
there fairly fast...ALONG with rear ends and front seats..

Why would anyone want the v6????
What???? Your post seems to suggest that there's an alternative. It's either that or the miserable 4 banger.
Sure, I guess you could stuff a northstar under the hood for about $3,500 plus custom wiring harnesses and adaptors....
maybe he was just being funny..I've seen way too many of the
4 bangers..with bad heads, and blown head gaskets....down here..
and with the high heat and humidity, they give up the ghost, but
quick..The 6 cyl..at least held up a tad better...being a GM
power plant..some people love 'em, others wanna dis owned them..

so, what's the alternative ? and yeah, that tweed was pretty spartan

sorta reminds me of those early VW Fox's.with the cloth-tweed seats
that wore out pretty much in the same spot...Lucky my seats were well
taken care of, my the original first owner..and still looks darn near new..

has anyone either had them re done..or slap in another interior, say
from a rodeo, or non isuzu suv ?

as i mentioned before, the boneyards the 4 bangers far out number the
2.8's.....I'm happy in an sense, there are a decent amount of MK 1's
still in the yards..allowing people to cherry pick certain parts that haven't been re introduced by third party aftermarket companies..

I think the first gen troopers are not bad..despite some of the bad raps
given them......
