A long time!!

We were often amazed at people trading their trucks @ 100kms. I remember the State manager for SA/NT Isuzu saying Why is this so Jim they are just run in :)

gday Ryan

Love my isuzu to bits it's a great bit of gear. I run the truck as my work rig and daily driver.

I wouldn't recommend buying the automatic model my mate has the same rig in auto and it's forever hunting gears and gutless for towing.

I have the 6 speed manual and it's great plenty of power and torque around town and on the highway.

It does rev quiet high at close to 3000rpm doing 110kmh so I just sit on 90 or 100 it gets better fuel ecconomy and dosent rev so hard lol.

I've had the truck for almost a year and find it will do a dpf burn every 400 kms or so and a burn lasts about 15 min this happens when your driving and you don't even really notice it happening but the truck can't be turned off during a burn. This can be a pain at times.

But I do heaps long distance trips on weekends so this probably helps. I've never had to do a manual burn.

If you have any questions I can p.m.you my mobile number and id be more than happy to have a yarn .

Cheers,
Smokey

I know of an alum ramp that folds in the middle ( not sure of dimensions ) a lawnie in Syd uses it. He was struggling a little getting his honda up a set of stairs at the rear of property so i suggested why not lay your ramp over them He was rapt.

 

Here,s a video of him.

 

someone should tell him his gators are meant to go over his socks
