#807 of 11966 Dealer Info, thanks!
Apr 29, 2001 (6:53 pm)
Thanks for the info. I have found a couple of dealers with used 99 and 2k for between $17k to $25k depending on the model. I found two 2k S for $17k in West NY and one nice Lux(Limited) model 1999 in MD for $19k. The approx. miles range from 10k to 25k on the Troopers. Both dealers are 200+ miles away from me but I think I will decide this week and take a road trip on the weekend. Just an FYI for others looking at used Troopers, it appears that almost all of them were rental cars or "fleet" cars(what ever that means) as per carfax.com (it was free for a few days via www.abcnews.com) I have bought off-rental cars in the past which is the reason the miles on them are higher than normal. I think the other reason most of them are rentals is that Isuzu owners are so happy with their trucks that they don't want to sell them! A very good sign of a great SUV!

Call Open Road Honda in Edison, NJ. I know they had some '99s back in December when my buddy was looking for one.
#809 of 11966 Lund Bug Deflector part number
Apr 30, 2001 (8:42 am)
I was reading a few posts back and noticed a couple of you have bought the Lund Interceptor. Does someone have a picture of one on a 98+ Trooper? My neighbor wants one and wants to see what it looks like first. If you have the Lund part number too, that would be great. Thanks.

In my last post I mentioned how I had just put a Bug Deflector II made by Vent Visor on my 00 Trooper. Install was easy, but now I am getting a loud cracking noise at moderate to high speeds that is very annoying. Has anyone else experienced this or does anyone have any suggestions?
#812 of 11966 Isuzu bug shield
Apr 30, 2001 (2:39 pm)
Lets try this again. I am pleased with the Isuzu bug shield. Probably a bit pricey at $105 installed, but it is definitely not coming off given the fact that it is screwed on. No cracking noise either. The corners near the fenders do appear to bend in at high speeds but there are plastic guards to keep from damaging the paint.

Check out some of the faqs on http://isuzu-suvs.com and you can also see some pics of my bug shield, the edges are very fragile, both of mine have broke, and I had them tapping the fenders something awful til they broke! They are nice before they break though...

Sometimes the cracking noise is the deflector hitting the hood. The Lund will not do this, as it has more clearance.
Also, sometimes the noise is turbulence induced by the deflector hitting the windshield.
#815 of 11966 Acura SLX options
Apr 30, 2001 (6:21 pm)
Figure you guys will know this one. Did the 98/99 SLX come with the power folding mirrors like the Trooper(LS/Limited) does? I have found a couple which are around the same price as the trooper so I want to look at them as well. It appears the only other changes/dif. are that it was only available with the single Disk CD player and the wheels are different(no hard cover spare too). I don't like the Wheels on the SLX but the price is right and wheels can be changed later down the line. Thanks.

As far as I know they had the power folding mirros.
