The canvas is held by common sense fasteners so it can be easily removed, the zippers are super duty and windows are tear resistant screen. One thing that did help Kristy was that...

    Trooper trailer

    I have thought of painting the lower panel of the top blue with stars reversed stencilled so they would be aluminum color. Other thought was to have a vinyl wrap made for the entire top doing a topographical theme. The trail weighs about a 1000 lbs , some one the main frame was done by a friend...

    Project: Stratotrooper

    That really does look good despite what you say. Short of turning the cans such as you did I don't have room for 2 cans so I am building my trailer with another can holder. Glad you made it thru 2019

    Winch Search: Used M8000 vs new VR8000

    I would go with the VR8000 + synthetic rope, the warranty is will worth the additional money. The warranty is a no BS let me talk the boss first. I broke the second stage planetary gears on my VR this winter and I swear the guy I was talking to at Warn was mailing the parts before I hung up the...

    1991 Isuzu Trooper Overlanding Build

    I assume it is a 1st Generation Trooper (86 - 91) Jerry is a good source. But if it is the top hinge on the drivers door then the bottom hinge on the right rear passenger door is usually in good condition and will interchange with drivers door and the same for the right front door and the left...

    31" Tires

    I set on a blurry line between long distance overloading and serious wheeling thus the reason for the 31s although the Trooper is built with about 60 more HP than stock and has 4.56 final drive it still struggles a bit on the highway, the reason is it weighs 5400 Lb when loaded for trips. With...

    31" Tires

    Really folks you need to lighten up, this post was REALLY!! brought by on by someone who has hinted that maybe my rig wasn't capable on 31s and my driving experience (only 68 years of off road travel) wouldn't be enough for a planned trip. But by the time I saw the humor in it I had already...
