They do still have accessories for older Trooper's pre-92s through current, so hopefully there will at least be a few years left.

Aren't they still making Jackaroos for Australia? That would maintain the aftermarket demand for ARB.

I recently bought a hidden hitch receiver (part # 87544) for a good deal and thought I would pass along the website. The hitch was $117 and the hoppy connector was $25. Both were shipped free.The service was good and I received the package in 4 days via UPS. I agree with some earlier posts that the paint job is not fabulous but I can fix that with a can of Rustoleum. I'll post later to dicuss the installation. http://www.hitchmart.com/

Just finished installing my hidden hitch reciever and wiring adapter. Very slick, installation and looks. Total time was 30 min with only a ratchet, 18mm,17mm and 3/4" sockets plus a couple of zip strips for the wiring. This hitch is appropriately named, standing behind the vehicle all you see is the receiver tube and the safety chain connecting rings, not the cross bar. A nice feature with the hoppy wiring adapter is the built on rubber grommet. It plugs neatly in the hole on the under side of the body where the factory harness plug is hiding. This is a fairly straight forward DIY project that most trooper owners could do in one evening, in the driveway.

Nice, love my hidden hitch too. Tow about 10-15K miles a year a 5000lb trailer.

It might be there but I'm not sure if I have a link to it or not.
#2002 of 2024 1995 stereo/speakers
Apr 21, 2004 (8:10 pm)
Howdy, forgive me if this is a stupid newbie question, but I have a 95 Trooper LS with the "premium" stereo w/cd changer. I've seen the post about the later model with the 80W head unit, and I've seen the ones about putting 5.25"s in the rear, and I was wondering if the stereo I have is comparable and if I can also fit 5.25"s in place of the 4" nasties in the rear.

I put the rear 5.25" speakers into my 1995. There are many sizes even within the 5.25" size. The best thing to do is take your Trooper to a stereo store and remove one of the original rear speakers then get the store to let you test fit their 5.25" speakers in the openning.
The rear speaker openning is big enough for 5.25" speakers that taper off quickly, that means they cannot stay 5.25" very long. There is plenty of depth in the center but the edges must taper in quickly.
You will need to drill new screw holes in the metal around the speaker openning to screw down your new 5.25" speakers.
Your 1995 original speakers are paper. If your Trooper has been exposed to hot humid weather a lot the paper is getting tired. I replaced my speakers when they began to sound worse due to the paper getting old and non flexible. I bought a set of four and replaced the front ones as well because it was a great deal buy one pair and get half off on the second pair.
Most car stereos can adapt to the impedance of most car speakers, so compatibility should not be an issue. You can read the impedance label on the existing speakers.
#2004 of 2024 Cruise control 99 Amigo

As you probably know, they did not make cruise control for the 99 Hard Top V6 Amigo, but it was available on the 99 Rodeo. Has anyone tried installing the cruise for a 99 Rodeo in a 99 Amigo?
Failing that, does anyone know how to get hold of wiring diagrams for both the 99 Amigo and Rodeo to compare to see if this idea would work.
