    Does anybody know anything about Isuzu Troopers? I need some type of utility vehicle to do some light hauling and bombing around town in. I'm looking for an older one (mid-80s) with around 120,000-150,000 miles on it. I've seen them with well over 200,000 miles. How rugged are the engines? Are there any big problems with them? How is the 3.2L for gas mileage?

    Ideally I'd like a diesel one, but they're pretty rare/beat up. Anyone have any comments on the diesel models?

    I'm also looking at Toyota Land Cruisers (FJ60/62), but they have kind of a cult following and are therefore considerably more expensive.

    They are pretty solid trucks. I've never seen a diesel one, but Isuzu diesels are great. My company had an Isuzu NPR diesel truck that lasted to 500k miles, and our current one is at about 180k.
