This was my first subie, and i do not want to discuss what I did to her. long story short I HATE myself.

00 LGT limited (auto)

After unfortunate-ness.. My grandma gave me her:

84 Chrysler E-Class (38k mi in 23 yrs) This thing lasted me 5k mi and overheated, along with several other problems

After that, I bought this very rare 5MT leather V6 Isuzu. Had to sell it- it was too rusty to be inspected

96 Rodeo LS

After getting rid of that, I was very tight on money so I bought this Isuzu for $800. with 206k mi. Also V6 5MT, but a lot slower (GM 3.1 engine)

92 Rodeo

I traded that for this BK. It had 154k mi on it. Not even 1k mi later, it startrd to rod knock, and eventually blew a hole through the block (caught on fire, police and fire dept showed up, one big mess). the piston is sitting on my desk :neutral:

98 LGT 5MT

Then I used the family's Ditchfinder for a few months... boring as hell

97 Nissan Pathfinder xe

Oh did i have some good times with her :wink: She was basically my first victim to DIY shindigs I randomly would find on the Rodeo forum. The reason I did sell it was because it wasn't a manual, and also because it wasn't a 4WD V6.

But yes, if I was in the market for an SUV it would definatly be another Isuzu, same model year, black, lifted, 5 spd and all the works :smile: mayyybe even a nice Trooper, always had a spot for their Land Rover-style body.
