Welcome to Texas Tortuga.
I am a First Generation Isuzu Trooper enthusiast/owner and a proud Texan. I am currently a culinary student, the husband of an awesome wife, and the father of 3 great children. I enjoy road trips and Texas history. What better way to learn more about Texas than to travel it's roads and trails to learn more about the history and cuisine. The Isuzu Trooper fits well into my need to discover as it is a very capable off/on road vehicle and I will chronicle my changes and upgrades to the vehicle here as well.

This is Tortuga. She gets her name from the fact that she is slow. Under the hood is a Isuzu 2.6l (4ZE1) gas engine. She sports a 5 speed manual transmission and 4x4 with manual locking hubs. The tires are 31x10.50r15s and the roof rack boasts 7 led lights (4 forward facing spot lights and 3 flood lights Left/Right/Rear). I will post about these modifications and upgrades as we progress.
