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.

Superlift 4.5" Lift System for the '05 and Newer Ford F-150
Superlift's F.I.T. series lift system is the choice for Ford truck owners
that will not compromise. Our design concept involves relocating (lowering)
the front differential, lower control arms and the factory coilovers - the
truck's uppper control arms remain in their factory location. New cast iron
steering knuckles span the increased distance between the upper / lower
New Coilover Towers and Steering Knuckles - New towers, also constructed of
.25" plate steel, relocate the factory coilover shocks. This method
maintains stock ride quality and greatly simplifies installation.
Superlift's new cast ductile iron steering knuckles correct all steering
related geometry without increasing vehicle track width or relocating the
rack and pinion steering system. Plus, the lift system also includes all
necessary alignment hardware. As you've come to expect from Superlift, all
of the critical factors from CV axle angles to suspension travel control
are properly addressed nothing is left unattended.
In addition to the new coilover towers, we also replace the stock shock
body with a monotube gas pressured 2" shock. The the shock body features a
durable zinc plated body and are a true performance enhancer. Rear lift is
via 4"; add-a-leafs that are specifically designed to combat spring / axle
wrap-up while keeping the truck's good ride characteristics intact and
spring spacer pads provide the extra lift needed to maintain a nice level

Oops, Axle and Ball Joint Replacement - EricTheCarGuy
Oops, Axle and Ball Joint Replacement
Sorry I missed you last week, I had this video half done and didn't get a
chance to finish. Well we have our 1990 Accord again, I'm getting some
mileage out of this one but I don't mind cause there are still quite a few
of these on the road and a few of you have claimed ownership to one of
these 4th generation Accords, so enjoy. A couple of things to note, I
could do a video on taking out the wishbone bolt alone, I've run into a few
problems here such as a rusted bolt that won't come out of it's bushing as
one example, perhaps future videos will show how to overcome this problem.
I thought this one went together well despite the fact that you might be
getting sick of Honda Accords, I still have more from other makes that I
haven't edited or posted yet. I have more to this video as well that may
show up in DVD form at one point, YouTube only gives me 10min to work with
but I think that is enough to get you started and not lose interest.
Perhaps you could help by submitting questions in the form of text
responses or what I would really like is a video response to something I've
put out there, that would be great.

'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!
101mm TURBO CTS-V - 1200hp Cadillac!!!
This was probably the NUTTIEST car we encountered at the Pikes Peak Air
Strip Attack - this 1170hp 101mm turbo
equipped Cadillac CTS-V was turning heads everywhere it went. Hop into the
passenger seat as we race down the 1/2 mile raceway at over 180 mph!
