    Are Earth Cruisers & Co. overpriced?

    Building your own camper can definitely be a cheaper option, but only if you have the skills and don't factor in your own labor and R&D costs. On top of all of the physical hardware costs, commercial entities have to recoup their labor costs and make a profit too, so it is absolutely no surprise...

    Is there a t-case that fits a 4he1 with 5 speed auto Aisin trans? Setting up a 4x4 conversion

    javajoe79 knows his way around the Isuzu. Maybe he can give you some possible options. If you were in Australia I would just say to buy a FG or NPR. ;)

    Is there a t-case that fits a 4he1 with 5 speed auto Aisin trans? Setting up a 4x4 conversion

    As an aside... it is useful to know where you are located, as different locations have different options.

    Use of Memory Clear and Diag Check for ECU Errors instead of MUT/OBD

    It's good to have a plan! 👍 Given what I have seen throughout this extended fault finding expedition of yours, I still think that somewhere you have a high resistance point, probably due to corrosion. As with any intermittent problem, the challenge is finding the root cause, which can be...

    2012 fuso 4x4 disc brake swap

    Short answer... No. I don't know for sure how all the variants around the world are configured, but here in Australia both Fuso and Isuzu still use 4 wheel drum brakes on their current model 4x4 light truck models (FG and NPS). The 4x4 Hino is an exception, as it has disks. The Iveco Daly 4x4...

    2007 FG-140 - Automatic? Is it possible?

    I actually like driving a manual transmission, as it just feel more like driving to me, but... Some time back I had the opportunity to go for a drive in an ATW Global Warrior that had the Alison conversion. I have to say... it was very impressive. One thing that was immediately noticeable was...

    Simple question for SRW owners...

    Don't feel bad... I am pretty sure that ATW did the same thing on their first series of steel SRWs for the Canter.

    Simple question for SRW owners...

    SRW = Single Rear Wheels

    Simple question for SRW owners...

    No. It is the inside wheels that get removed when you go to singles, so there is significantly more space between the tyres at the rear when you run singles. The offests on the singles is slightly different from the OEM rims too, which allows the track on the front and back to be the same. To...

    2014 Super singles

    17" rims are what's "trendy" at the moment in Australia, primarily because there are more tyre options than there are with the 19.5" rims. Personally, I believe that the gearing is better with the 35.5" tyres, over the 37" tyres, especially if you have an engine with standard HP. I have also...

    2014 Super singles

    Sorry, a bit off topic, but that's an interesting little truck. Wonder what they did to the engine, as it looks very much like it has been setup as a desert racing truck.

    Aftermarket Isuzu Dash Switches?

    Aftermarket Isuzu Dash Switches?

    You've done a nice job there, but I have to admit, I am not a big fan of these aftermarket style switches, as there is a lot of light bleed around the edges from the LEDs, which for me is just a case of poor design. It's not like switch companies could not make a better switch, as most of the...

    JDM Ex firetruck as overlander?

    I am not sure if it is the same globally, but here in Australia the Isuzu and Fuso 4x4 light trucks are used extensively for our Rural Fire Service (RFS). Previously I have been told that Australia has 80% of the market in these 4x4 trucks. The standard operation procedure is to NEVER turn the...

    2007 FG-140 - Automatic? Is it possible?

    I should add... from an engineering perspective, pretty much anything is possible. It just depends how deep your pockets are. :)

    Damper shock for Stratos seat?

    True. The part number has obviously not changed in 10 years.
