#1 of 2024 Electronic Shift Kit for Isuzus (Passport too) with 4L30E
Dec 21, 2000 (5:04 am)
WILL BE AVAILABLE 1/15/01! The unit simply plugs incline with the stock wiring harness going to the transmission and has adjustments for line pressure and delay of torque converter lockup. I have been testing a unit for the past 6 months that only adjusted line pressure and it has been great on the street and on the track. Quicken shifts actually allow a transmission to last longer as the slipping that occurs in a long, smooth shifts is really slip page which wears out the clutches and bands inside.
MSRP should be less than $200 and no disassemble of the transmission required. Can be removed easily if necessary. For more info, their site is:

#2 of 2024 SWAYBAR for an Isuzu Rodeo '99 4WD V6? And after market shocks?
Dec 21, 2000 (12:33 pm)
Can you reccomend a SWAYBAR for an Isuzu Rodeo '99 4WD V6?
To improve flat cornering on-road? No major deterioration to the ride(e.g. side tossing)?
We don't do much off-roading
I'm also buying aftermarket shocks again to improve handling and control at highwya speeds...Are Monroe Sensatrac good in that area?
Would they make my ride much harsher?
Would Bilsteins be better?
#3 of 2024 Aftermarket Suspension...
Dec 21, 2000 (12:41 pm)
I'm going to do the following on my trooper:
OME Springs in the Rear
Rancho 9000 adjustable shocks all around
Calmini f/r sway bars.
THere are links to Calmini on my page below:
#4 of 2024 ARB Bumper
Dec 21, 2000 (6:59 pm)
I have ordered an ARB Bumper for my 1999 Trooper. I got it from 4x4connection.com for $595 and about $130 shipping. It should be in by the end of the year. I did a lot of research, not only talking to a lot of vendors, but calling the ARB US HQ who were very helpful. They even faxed me a letter about airbag compatibility. The letter was vague, it didn't specifically say the Trooper, but said that all bumpers comply with current airbag standards. It was enough re-assurance after all of the other information I have gathered.
I plan on adding a winch next year, $800 a year is all I can handle. The ARB guys don't think I will need to adjust or upgrade the suspension unless I add a winch (current bumper 20 lbs. and ARB 100 lbs.), so I may add OME shocks down the road, but don't think I need to for the initial install. I may need to have the ride height adjusted, I will see.
BTW, the new spellchecker is difficult to use, I really liked the old format, so if I mispell, too bad until they improve the new "improved" version.
Three is the magic number, took me three times to post this message too...

Paisan--any word from your New Zealand connection? Not to rush you, but I was considering calling an Aussie dealer's parts department, since they at least speak Anglais. NO FEAR! Email me at rdsterlhotmail.com when ya hear anything.
#6 of 2024 Schofields in NZ

You can try e-mailing http://www.schofield.co.nz/index.html They seem to be a pretty big Holden dealer out there. Make sure to include your VIN # cause that is what they asked me when I e-mailed them.

#10 of 2024 Hella 4000 Eurobeam w/City Lights
Dec 26, 2000 (5:37 am)
Well I just ordered the Hella 4000 Eurobeam lights for on my Nudge Bar w/city lights. Also upgraded to the 130watt bulbs for it. They should be sweet for the mountains. Ordered from susquehana motorsports, great guy over there who I always deal with. I'm planning on wiring the 5w city lights into my parking lights (at least the relay trigger for them) and the relay for the 130w main beam will get wiring into the highbeams. I figure that if I do that I won't have to mess with wiring in any switches through the firewall, etc. etc. Also the only time I'd use the 4000s would be when I have my high beams on already so that seemed good. Side benefit is that my flash to pass will be 100w high beams, 80w low beams, and 130w Hella 4000s Links to susquehana are on my home page. I also ordered a K&N air filter from prefromance parts so we'll see if it boosts performance at all.
