#684 of 2024 Another New Trooper owner in Atlanta - Mods Update
Apr 27, 2001 (2:02 pm)
I have also been reading everybody's posts for the last few months... thanks for the info. I have a 1999 Trooper I OD that I bought new in Atlanta. last summer in August. I guess Isuzu had a few 1999's in their inventory somewhere. It only had 40 miles on it! So far I have installed the following:
- Alpine 6 ad changer: kept factory head unit to avoid theft, still sounds pretty good (see next)
- Pol speakers front and rear: ordered from Crutch field, no problems & easy to swap out with Crutch field's wiring harness
- I&N drop-in air filter: definitely worth it. In economy mode, my trooper has a lot more pep
- INSTALLED TODAY: Draw Tie Class III hitch
Future Projects: window tinting, bug shield, brush bar with Hell's, leather seat covers(not sure yet)
I've put 16000 miles on since I got the truck in Aug'00. Runs great!
#685 of 2024 Re-tuning computer chip

Something for you guys who want to increase Trooper power by re-tuning the computer chip: http://www.hypertech-inc.com/

hypertech is located here in Memphis but I don't believe they offer chips for Isuzu's. Their market is the big 3. Let me know if you know otherwise. I think "jetperformance" does make chiips for Isuzu's at around $350 but I haven't heard anything about them.
#687 of 2024 In dash-CD?
Apr 27, 2001 (7:50 pm)
I want to add an in dash CD changer. I don't want to have to replace the OEM head unit? Anyone have any ideas? I am open to buying thr factory unit, but it is expensive from Isuzu. I am looking to get better than the OEM, but anyway.

Wait for someone on here to sell their OEM CD changer? I'm sure it won't be long before someone on here upgrades and wants to sell you their old one.

I wanted to do the same but heard of occasional problems with CD's skipping. Here's what I did instead...installed an Alpine 6 CD changer(very slim profile) vertically in the glove box, where it is out of sight and I can lock it. Cost for unit was only $250. Alpine is known for high quality and this unit was highly recommended by dealer. Not had a single problem with and I don't worry as much about theft.HTH

People still steal radios? Here in NYC they just take the whole car! :0
#691 of 2024 factory DELCO unit
Apr 28, 2001 (7:10 am)
The factory DELCO head unit with cassette was no loss to me. I don't use cassette. The Alpine has a great look in the trooper--looks like factory, although its not a CD changer that I have. The spot for the factory CD changer works great for CDs in cover slips. The Alpine face comes off and has a storage box, if you are in a questionable area in terms of theft.

I just got a replacement for my defective original CD changer, and would be willing to sell it. It's brand new from the factory and has never been installed in my truck (or tested, for that matter). I've also got the factory head unit if anyone's interested. I don't know how much these things cost from Isuzu, but I'll give you a good deal.

Sue I am interested. How much do you want for it? Send me an e-mail. chapla.tmellon.com
