Installing 3" Suspension lift on Isuzu rodeo back in 1997 - old times :)

THis video probably has no point to most viewers... it's more for some close friends to go back in time to see how 'we use to be'. All of us no longer look the way we do in this video. besides looks, the jokes, and the way we were has changed... so this video is just a good memorie video. There will be others like this to come. But... if you are thinking about lifting your Isuzu rodeo shoot me a comment or mail, i also have a video of the body lift that eventually i'll come accross. i can make a full lift video only. Note, Chuck, the lift installer, appears a few times riding a 80's Ninja. this was his first bike and the new beggining that he didn't know of at the time. Chuck got into superbike racing, and now orks at H&B MACHINES, a bike shop located in Trenton NJ, that customizes all sorts of bikes. This video might bring some old memories back... the roots!!! As for me, the Rodeo lasted me 13 years with 197,000 miles. engine never broke and i changed the oil every 5 to 10,000 miles. never changed the timing chain and the only thing that went bad on it, was the rear axle (3 times). this was due to the oversize tires. For Chevy fans, the 91 and 92 Rodeo came with the Chevy Blazer 3.1 V6 engine (GM)... so i'm surprised it lasted this long... i sold the truck and ran fine... never saw it again. Enjoy, and comment away.

Opel Monterey - Isuzu Trooper - IFS flexing - Offroad
This is my Opel Monterey on 33" Mud Terrains flexing in a ditch. I modified the front suspension and have 9" front travel right now. I'm trying to get even more out of it and I'm shooting for at least 10". To improve the the rear flex I have some longer shocks ordered so that will be better soon. The car has 5" lift ( 4" suspensionlift and 1" bodylift) and is locked front and rear with aussie lockers!





A tour of my 1996 Isuzu Rodeo 4x4 with Calmini lift
I grabbed the camera and got some video of the rig. I have been pondering selling or trading this for a smaller fuel efficient car for my new 100 mile daily commute.
