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.
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.
Here is the Rodeo Brush Bar:

Axle Replacement 1 of 4- 1995 Isuzu Rodeo
Video 1 of 4- Removing the Rotor
In this video series I will be repairing a 1995 Isuzu Rodeo front driver
side axle- This is a 4x4 v6 rodeo.
If you're hearing a popping, grinding, or clanking noise while turning it
is probably your CV joint going out.
I didn't want to spend $750 to have someone else replace this axle when it
only cost me about $155 to do it myself. That price includes then specialty
tools I had to buy. I ended up replacing both front axles for about $215.
I figured I saved about $1300 doing the repairs myself.

No, this is not the complete installation video. This will not tell you how
to go home and do it. Just a quick clip of part of it getting done.
'07 Jeep JK - Suspension Lift [S2 Ep.12-1]
Ya know, people are always asking if it is possible to get their rig on
GearZ? Well, today, Stacey does just that by borrowing an '07 Jeep JK from
a family and jumpstarting their project with the sole purpose of taking it
to the next level. However, the real challenge is to try and build
something that the WHOLE family will like, and still be able to use on the
street or off-road. If you've ever sat and stared at your project and tried
to figure out what the heck to do next, or what is the best thing to spend
your time and money on, this show is the one to see. And who knows? One
day, you might see your vehicle on GearZ!
Isuzu Rodeo V6 3.2L Engine Trouble
start-up, idle and RPM run-up. I suspect a bad connecting rod or rod
bearing on the front passenger side. See the second video of this as well
when I remove the ignition lead.
