87 is a split year.

the early 87's are really 86's.......they have a drum break rear 10 bolt isuzu axle and an 8 bolt front.

if it is a later 87.........with 12 bolt disk brake rear and 10 bolt front.....then it is a very good deal.

they usually have the carborated 2.3L 4cyl........at leat the 87 i had did. Not as good as the Fuel injected 2.6L that started in 88.


all in all $300...................if it runs........yeah it's a good deal

and you could swap the stuff into your LUV

One more thing. Will the bell housing bolt patern be the same on this motor as it is for a 2.2L diesel? I was just wondering becouse i can get one of these realy easy and it would make more sense for a daily driver i think.

good buy

A two door trooper with sound body is in my mind a good deal.
