I have started building an electronic capacitive fuel sender for my Trooper. I was wondering if others would like to have one made for them. The hardest part is the capacitor, it has to be hand made, Mine is made of two sheets of aluminum, 7" X 16-18" and 6 3/4" X 14" and rolled up together separated by 2 pieces of bird netting, that stuff you put over your fruit tree to keep the birds out of your fruit. I checked the readings as I filled a container with gas and the change was quite linear and repeatable. I believe that if you were to start with an almost empty tank, you could add a gallon of gas and mark you gauge, add another gallon and mark your gauge, etc, etc. I plan to put my sender in the middle of my tank which will keep it from changing as I go up hill, down hill or on level ground and the design can be made to not show sloshing. If you think you may be interested, let me know. Before you ask, I have no idea what it may cost and if you want, I think it will fit into the existing sender hole instead of putting it in the center.

Thanks but I am passing because I am getting rid of my gas gauge entirely. Since my gas tank in the front, I am going the way of an old tractor. Moving the filler tube to the top of the tank. Will just open hood, open fill cap & look inside.

EDIT Kinarfi -- Sounds like the most fail safe method available, If we had resettable trip odometers, That would be a way to go, just so many miles in a tank of fuel.

    • 2009 Joyner trooper starting problems

      I have a no cranking issue with my joyner. It has a chery 1100. It will click but nothing after that.  New battery. I tried banging in the starter while holding key in start(old car trick). Now the  starter solenoid won't even clunk. Just hear s click fron the relay now.  My assumption is the starter needs replacing.  Any ideas of other things to check? Does anyone have diese block diagrams?  Got no clue what fuse or relay goes to what

    • Trooper 1100 Turbo Kit?

      Hey guys, so i have built my own turbo kit in house and it works awesome! seeing these turbo kits for sale for 3 and 4k seemed a little steep for me.. i built my entire kit intercooled and all for less then half of that price so i am considering selling these kits.. if i could produce a complete bolt on kit that could be installed with simple hand tools in your garage strait for $1800 and intercooled for $2500 would any of you be inerested? i would like to post pics but not sure how to? i have also snorkled my trooper and not just the air filter but diff vents, the two chrome catch cans (crankcase vent and radiator vent) along with raising the ECM and fuse boxes to head level.. this as well could be sold as a kitfor very little cost. i can also do the work in-house if needed (install all of this for you) for only a couple of hundred... is this stuff you guys would be interested in? Turbo kits will be complete al the way down to an Autometer Vac/Boost guage, fuel controller etc.... i have seen a HUGE increse in power! if you have more questions you can call me at 713-824-8891 i'm in the Houston Texas area. Also Lenny would you mind calling me so i could pic your brain for a min? some questions about this site (how to post pics, stetting up my profile etc.) as well as a few other things. Thanks i love this forum and really look foward to helping in the future! and really like seeing extreme joyners on the trail!

    • Trooper computer programmer

      There is a company I ran across at the CES trade show this year. They make a programmer that should be able to program the Troopers computer. About $300. The Trooper s computer is a standard Bosch car computer. The only differance is that it is programed for the Trooper. The programmer will program most any car or truck so it should work. The company could probably help is finding which program the computer uses and assist finding out which computer pins to hook to. This programmer will program all aspects of the tuning including things like Pulse width tables, VE tables, Timing tables, prime pulse width, crank pulse width, after start pulse width, warmup pulse width, enrichment pulse widths, acceleration pulse widths. rev limit and more.

    • Wanted: Trooper Axle Parts

      I am interested in any old trooper axle parts you may have lying around. Please let me know if your want to sell them.  Backstory: Hey everyone. Last trip out to moab I climbed a wall on poison spyder Mesa while 2 rzr xp1000's and three can am x3 xrc's watched me and didn't dare try. After doing it once I pulled around to show them it wasn't a fluke. One on the can am x3 xrc drivers just looked at me and said "that's steep". On the second try I spread the bell on the left rear axle. I made the climb but now the inner cage slips inside making a loud popping noise as twisting the boot. I mainly just need the inner bell but I am interested in anything you have.
