Hi all, My name is Rodney and I'm originally from NZ, but now I reside in south Brisbane. I'm new to the page and new to Isuzu. Anyway this is my MU...I was lucky enough to pick this up off a friend who was actually building it for himself. So it's the best of two separate Mu's, one which was flood damaged(fortunately most of it was salvaged including the interior and carpet which now sits in place of the ugly brown vinyl mess that was in the other) the other, which is what you see here had extensive panel damage and rust...but luckily old mate who built it for me is a panel beater by trade, and cut out all rust and massaged out any dings before coating it in this Puegot blue, with black bonnet, tailgate and rear roof.
As it sits it has zero mods done to the 4JG2 or driveline.
But will be looking at the following in the coming Months:
2" suspension lift
Mud tyres
Front locker(mechanical)
Bullbar
Roof rack
And replace the tired fog lamps with an Led Bar
She serves as an awesome runabout and it's so good having a second 4x4.
That's it I suppose...cheers
