Haha, I've still got some Hotwheels of it. There was a Transformer knock-off toy of them and a few other things.

It's a rare, limited production vehicle. They were made from 1997 to 2001, imported to the US from 1999-2001. Only about 4,000 units were imported. It was Isuzu's "image" vehicle. Got mine used in 2003 after having wanted one ever since seeing one at a 2001 auto show. Given their previous relationship with GM, it had a GM 4L30E transmission also used in BMW's. It had the same Recaro seats used in some Porsches. It also had orange turn signal lenses on the front that were an exact match for a Nissan part.

Extremely capable off-road - in stock form. Really nice stock shocks. One of the magazines said it had the most stock articulation for a vehicle of its suspension type that they had ever tested. Very solid build quality in that regard (frame, suspension). However, the windows, door locks, CD player... they had issues.

Couple things I learned from it... I'll never have a car again, I like the higher riding position for clearance, visibility, and ease of maintenance. I'll never have chromed wheels again (they began to peel and flake). I'll never do another mod to make my vehicle "sound better" (louder).

I thrashed that thing some times, and would you believe the rotors never needed to be replaced? They weren't done before me, and I got it with 46K miles on it, let it go at 138K.

What I have learned from my Ram truck - I'll never have a 2dr SUV again, probably never have a SUV again. Pickups rule. Although a Ram could never touch a "VX" off-road, the Ram is a lot more versatile.

94 GMC 4x4... 350cid, bought in 97, still have it for now, it has 256,000 miles on the original engine/ trans,and I say it's still a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10 on looks, and still runs great, original paint still shines when waxed up,and never had any major work done to it!

1987 Power Ram W150. My daily driver from Aug of '89 till Aug of '07 when I sold it after I bought my 3rd gen. 318 2bbl, Torqueflite auto, solid axles. A little short on performance but never failed to deliver otherwise. Super reliable with great gas mileage. One hell of a truck. Never let me down. Towed, hauled, pulled tree stumps and stuck boulders from the ground, sub zero driving, blizzards, long trips (although the bench seat was occasionally lacking for comfort). Pulled numerous vehicles out of ditches in addition to chaining out a few Toyota, GM and Ford 4x4's whose pluto headed owners forgot basic laws of physics and drove 80 mph in all weather conditions because they have four... wheel... drive.
