    1999 Isuzu Vehicross Ironman Edition

    Unfortunatly I have to sell my 1999 Vehicross Ironman. I am located in Edison, NJ right near Rt1 and other major highways. The body is in very good shape with only minor paint dings which were touched up. The body cladding is in great shape as well with all the button head fasteners in place. The front hood Ironman insert has been repainted satin black with the 'IRONMAN' logo in silver and stainless steel allen head fasteners holding it down (replacing the glued on fasteners from the factory). The interior is original except for a Pioneer stereo in place of the factory one with the special edition Ironman themed Recaro red and black leather seats front and rear. The rear are like new and the front have some wear but no rips or holes. Carpeting is in decent shape but does show wear under the floor mats. The dash has no cracks in the padding and is also in excellent shape. The center console arm rest does have wear from people resting their elbow on it while driving but replacement covers are available on ebay. The wheels were upgraded to M/T Aluminum 8 hole wheels with BF Goodrich All Terrain T/A KO2's (245/75R16) all around. Underneath the exhaust was replaced 2 years ago with all new parts and the brakes were replaced as well as all front wheel bearings. There is no looseness in the suspension and the original shocks still work. Also, out back there is a class III trailer hitch installed with tail light connector. The original drivetrain with a 4 speed automatic and 3.5L V6 engine works well and has 165,222 miles on the odometer. The engine is in decent shape and runs well and the timing belt was replaced with a new Gates belt but the Check Engine light is on. Also of note, the ABS light does come on at times and other times is off. The brakes work fine though when the light is on the Antilock braking feature does not pulse. Also, there is a new Champion battery under the hood. I am asking $6500.

    ~Has muffler ever been replaced? What's the status of the current muffler? Rusted, surface rust, etc? OEM, after-market?
