Greetings from Milwaukee, WI - Need Trooper Advice!

Postby CheeseheadTrooper » Mon Feb 22, 2021 2:30 am

Howdy -

I was the proud owner of a 98 Trooper Limited, purchased new. I loved that beast - it reliably hauled my band gear and my Golden Retrievers up to around 115k, when the engine crapped out - oil leaks. I had a local shop rebuild the bottom. Eventually I got 249k miles out of it before I traded it out during Cash for Clunkers in '09. I have an opportunity to buy a 2000 Limited with under 90k. Having been away from Isuzus for quite a while and knowing that Cash for Clunkers took a lot of refurb-able parts off the road, I'm wondering about the current availability of parts and mechanics' willingness to continue to work on them.

I currently drive a 2003 Kia Sorento and am also considering buying an '07-09 EX with similar miles and I'm pretty sure that parts would probably be easier to get, but I really LOVED my big ol' box on wheels.

Opinions and advice greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
