    I would buy the Mitsi. The Isuzu is half worn out with that mileage.

    Ive heard the Fusos cannot really handle much weight, but maybe that is just the 4wd models? I wish Isuzu would sell the NPR 4x4 here in the US, they do sell them in Europe.

    we have a mitfuzo, great truck but defiantly not the quickest thing out there, that being said what you doing with it? but it has been nothing but reliable and a pleasure to own so far *knock on wood*

    why would you pay the same price for a vehicle with 100k miles more?

    they are both great work trucks, both expensive to work on, so why set yourself up for failure by buying a vehicle with 100,000 more miles than another for the same price...

    get the fuso!
