What to do next?

Postby TroopinSC » Mon Dec 21, 2020 12:08 am

I have picked up this 1992 Trooper LS manual. I have since replaced all front end bushings, tie rods, control arms upper and lower etc. I also went with the Rancho 9000’s. Wheels and tires have been upgraded to a 16x8 Vision Manx wheel with 33” Milestar Patagonias. Don’t want to sink a ton of money into it but also want it to be more than adequate while on any trails I may want to scurry up. What would be your next upgrade? I’m open to just about anything if it makes sense. Here is a before and after.

Very seldom. I live in upstate South Carolina so it usually doesn’t drop below freezing very often. It may snow 2-3 times a year but when it does it’s usually no more than a couple of inches.

I installed a lunchbox locker on mine which makes it a beast off road, and a bear on road.

I would invest on upgrading to LED bulbs by replacing all the tail lights, brake lights, signal lights, park lights, plate lights and headlights. It's a good small investment but highly functional for safety purpose. You can also add LED bar or fog lights. BTW, I like the new tires and you painted the lower panels. It makes a whole lot better.

Rocksliders and belly plate & 33' tires is the only thing this trooper needs to go anywhere
