So eventually I'll update this thread with photos and whatnot. For now, Just let me say that I have a 1995 Isuzu Rodeo with my fiancé. it's name is Blanche cause it's a dirty old whore.

Once we are through with school and whatnot (damneded adult things!), we'll get cracking properly on the SAS we have planned and the diesel swap. If we can find a 4jb1t in Canada I'll be happy as hell, but over a year of searching has turned up nothing. So I'll have to go to the states. I'm hoping the northern area or the Midwest will have something. Virginia is a long ass way away. Florida is worse.
For now it's pretty boring. most I've done is build a homebrew hitch for it because I damn sure ain't paying 300 bucks for one. Oh, and Miranda wired in some sweet lights we got in a package deal I did for my dirtbike. At some point I'll build a roofrack (since no one makes one dammit!) and mount the lightbar too. I'm no fan of lightbars, but she loves them.

We don't know how hardcore we'll wheel with Blanche since she's in such nice shape. I'm picking up a 91 Mitsubishi Pajero diesel for 500 bucks in the next few weeks here, I think that'll be the "hey yeah we're gonna go munch on er in the bush" vehicle. Not gonna lie, Blanche will likely end up far more capable than she is ever used for.

but that's OK. it'll see dirt and mud. My fiancé loves mud. ha.

this will be a VERY slow thread. I have the Rodeo, the Pajero, a dirtbike, a raptor 700r, and an older, small boat to maintain. Things move about as fast as the Ents speak.

Oh, and there's a bumper that's been in the middle of getting built for like. . . 4 months.
And a winch I got with my 100 dollar axle. 8,000 pound that needs a controller. He tossed it in for free. which I thought was right proper meeint of him.

it's a stock Rodeo with no roof rack, yellow spots, a rust hole in the back quarter, and 225/75/16 winter tires boys.

but yeah I'll find some photos so you guys can have a laugh.
We'll just give you some motivation to hurry up and build it.










And laugh a little on the side.

So after looking at my photos I've realized that I have taken more photos of the R50 Pathfinder I got for free than I have of the Rodeo.
God I put that pile of shit through the ringer. . . Ha.
Yeesh. Literally 2 photos of it that are "in the wild"

Yes the camera on my 70 dollar (CAD, so like, 11.25 USD) phone sucks. Get over it.

Mounted our 32x7.5 tires yesterday. They'll do until the SAS is done.

Had to do the responsible thing oday and buy boring parts. Control arm bushings, a rad support, and brakes.

2/3 of which will be turfed when I can mount an axle under it.
Fuck.
