Am considering purchasing an Isuzu Npr. Its about a 94, has the 4 cyl turbo diesel and 160k miles, no body. I can get it for around 2k. It has brand new batteries, turbo and belts. Starts and runs good. Would like to either fabricate or purchase a landscape body with dovetail and fold down gate. Anybody have a setup like this? How do you like it vs pickup and trailer? Also what is the max overhang past frame before I start having issues. Don't want front of truck flying up in air when loading a 1700 lb mower.
Thanks,
Sam Rosen

I've heard the older model transmissions don't hold up pass 200k. That's what I read up on. I just bought and 03 NPR hd dump with 171k.

If you can get it for 2k and the body is in good shape right there is your money and if down the road you have to install a few things don't be surprised :waving::waving:

I purchased a 1993 npr two years ago for $2800. I have about seven in it now after working it for two years. It was used to haul cars with. It was an eleven foot flat bed with a 12000 pound winch on it. Perfect starter truck and got me away from pulling a trailer. I fabricated my own bed. Email me and I can share allot of pros and cons.

Older isuzu's are money pits IMO. Needs to be 2000 or newer.
