    I assume you'll go through Denver and the mountains on I-70 when you go to Moab. I've been to Moab in a Jeep Wrangler about 50 times, but, more importantly, or more to my point anyway, I can tell you of about 50 incredible trails in Summit, Lake and Park Counties, Colorado (70 miles west of Denver). I would just need to think it all out and make you up a map that I could scan and email to you. Some of the trails are fairly season-sensitive. For instance, in order to "tread lightly" the forest service keeps some trails closed until the run-off is over, which can stretch out into late June and sometimes even into mid July. But most of the others I'm thinking of are accessible beginning in May/June. I can recommend trails ranging from nice scenic views to those that would rival the Rubicon Trail. Moab is great, it's just different (read HOT, while Summit County never gets above 90 degrees ((nice break from the rest of the country))and LOW humidity - although Moab has low humidity too). I can tell you where our favorite campsite is. The terrain and views in Colorado cannot be beat.

    isn't too hot in May, that's why ZuZoo is held then...this year it ranged from kinda hot one or two days (nothing extreme, though) to pretty cool and windy one night.

    I understand it can get pretty hot in summer, though...

    now flies non-stop from Houston to Denver for as low as $179.00 RT (usually more like $220.00). Anybody care to divert 20 miles to DIA and pick me up? I really would consider this. We'd have a night's free lodging in the mountains too, if we wanted it. I'll keep checking in on dates.

    20miles/2000+miles is almost nothing. Definitely looks like next year will ba a ball. Do you use AOL Instant Messanger? There is usually an Isuzu chat happening 24x7. Just check http://isuzu-suvs.com/im for details.

    Where is Moab anyway? And when is the trip everyone is talking about?
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    It's in Utah. I believe it's a National Forest, or National Park. It's where they hold the national Isuzu Off-road camping trip each year (or at least the past 4 years) Usually held in May.

    Moab is in SE Utah, right near Arches National Park and many other scenic areas. It is a Mecca for all sorts of off-road activities, trucks, ATVs, motorcycles, mountain bikes, you name it. THey have events such as the Easter Jeep Safari which attracts over 1,500 Jeeps for off-road trail rides.

    The "main" Isuzu-related event is 'ZuZoo, which is held in May each year. This year (ZuZoo IV) there was about 80 vehicles participating. Check out zuzoo.org for ZuZoo V event news. For general area info check out moab-utah.com.

    You're being paged in the following topic regarding a good tint shop in NYC. IIRC, you wrote about this just recently, but I can't remember where.

    I have a '94 Trooper LS with all the options and it has become very costly in repairs now ( last 2 years $8K ... new a/c, new trans, etc ) = I want to buy a 2001 LS "4x4" (with a sun/moon roof ) ... asap to pull a 24' boat and to go snow skiing.

    I am in Orlando,FL and the dealer explained that Florida does not get any "4x4" Troopers .... only "2x2" !!??!!?? Plus, this dealer has contacted their distributor on 08/14/01 and was told that per the factory that there is only only one (1) "4x4" Trooper (Limited ... loaded opts) in the USA !!!???!!!???
    I am having a very hard time believing this dealer that there is now in inventory only one (1) "4x4" Trooper in the entire USA !!

    I need your help .... where do I look and/or who do you suggest I contact at Isuzu in order to get a Trooper LS "4x4" ? Thank you in advance for your assistance on this matter !!

    Mark Jerrick @ SI Subaru/Isuzu in NY. He has 4wd Troopers in stock. I'm not sure how he'd work the shipping but tell him I sent you and maybe he can work it out. 718-979-9595

    It is true that 4X4 Troopers are hard to come by in Florida. My suggestion is to call the dealer in Jacksonville (I don't remember the name). That dealer can go directly to the port and hand pick the exact Trooper that you want. The way it works for the rest of the dealers is they basically get whatever comes in on the trucks - they can't order a specific Trooper for you. I hope this helps.

    That's 100% incorrect.

    1st, the troopers that come in from Japan go to Port of Baltimore, so that rules out your Jacksonville person as going to hand pick them.

    2nd, I did in fact order an LS 4wd last year, with the color and options I wanted, and I'm good friends with my dealer so I KNOW he ordered it.

    Meybe in NYC, but when I purchased my 2000, it came from Jacksonville.

    <2nd, I did in fact order an LS 4wd last year, >
    <with the color and options I wanted, and I'm <good friends with my dealer so I KNOW he ordered <it.

    Again, in 2000 there was NO WAY to order a Trooper here in Florida. I called almost every dealer in the state, and they all had the same story. They only get what Isuzu choses to sends them.

    That's the line they told you, but it's complete BS. Unless Isuzu works the way Subaru does in the Northeast. In the Northeast Subarus are actually imported/distributed by a different company than SOA. They have different pricing and different rules for getting cars.

    I've heard that Atlanta dealers also have good deals on cars, so you might want to call them, and see what they can do for you, it's a shorter drive than to NYC, although I'd imagine they could ship from NYC to FL.
