Vehicle: 1997 Isuzu Rodeo S V6 4dr SUV 4WD

I purchased this gem in 2000 with only 14k on the odometer. I currently have 152k on it now. I have used it for traveling across country with my family, camping trips and of course, done some serious off-roading. I have only had minor repairs I have made to the truck, brakes, hoses, belts, timing belt and tensioner, alternator and battery. This has been , by far, the most durable and reliable vehicle I have ever owned. Fantastic truck!
