Trooper Photos & Videos

Recommended Posts

I tried posting a video of the Trooper with a new canvas enclosure here to show what the vision was like looking through the plastic windscreen, but I could not so I opened a youtube account and posted it there. The link is

and it will give you a fair idea what the vision is like & a NZ bush track. This one was a closed forestry rd that wouldn't of seen a truck in years. We did find a truck but that was the end of that track. The vision through the windscreen is surprisingly very good but I still decided to add a zip and now you get the best of both worlds. The photos of the zip are here: http://community.webshots.com/album/568944807yrkoaG

Cheers Mike.

Where do you buy this enclosure for the Trooper or did you have it custom made?

This full canvas enclosure was made by Joyner and is new to the market. There is a hard enclosure available too. With my canvas enclosure, I was not happy with the design so I've had a zip added to the front windscreen, marine hardware fittings to the firewall and eyelets to the sill by a marine upholsterer. The video was an attempt to show the difference between the plastic screen and open air by flashing the camera in & out of the cab. If your worried about a plastic windscreen not having good vision don't be because it's no worse than glass however I would recommend making these changes because of heat build up on a hot day and more importantly for mud bogging because mud these plastic windscreens equals poor vision at best. She's a rip snorter of a day over here and it's forecasted to get up to 26c(which is about 80f) so I'm going back up to Moirs Hill see how much better it is like this and I'll take the camera.

Cheers Mike.

      I just bought a 2008 Trooper T2 not knowing much about them. On this one the owner said the horn doesn't work, the winch never did work and during inspection the rear brake lights didn't work. He said he replaced the rear light pods recently and the brake lights worked before. He said the fuse module is corroded so he bypassed it and rigged up his own switches for the fuel pump and radiator fan. I see in the wiring diagram the horn and rear brake lights are on the same circuit. Now I am worried the problem is in the wiring harness.
      I have the wiring diagram from the online manual but I can't make any sense of it. I see lots of posts about wiring issues and I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the issues I see with these machines and am regretting buying it.
      For now my main concern is to get the brake lights working so I can drive it to some nearby trails. I would appreciate any advice on how to go about diagnosing the problem or workarounds. Also if there is a better wiring diagram out there that might help. I would consider hiring someone local to diagnose it so any recommendations are welcome.
      TIA.

      So my rear diff lock cable is seized on a 2009 trooper 1100 T2 . How do i remove the end that goes into the diff ?

      Soo for my second problem lol, 2009 trooper 1100 5 speed , will not engage 5th gear , all others work fine but seems like 5th doesn't engage completely and wont grab the gear. Any idea on where to start looking for issues, or what to look for in regards to linkage.

      I bought a new oil pressure sending unit for my 2008 Trooper T2 (see first picture attached). When I went to install it I found out the sensor on my machine looks like the sensor for a Renegade (see second picture attached). Has anyone ever seen this? I know this is not a retro fit since because the threaded tube that connects it to the engine is a much smaller diameter than the stock part.
      What is the proper part number for the unit so I can get a replacement?

      I recently bought an 08 Trooper T2. As far as I can tell there is no spark arrester on these machines. I found an old post about this but I need more info. The previous owner added a secondary muffler to my machine. I am hoping I can find an easy way to add an arrester to it. I have no idea how to go about finding one.
