    Default Any Rocky expert out there

    I am parting ways with my Suzuki SJ410, and looking ofr something powerful and big.
    I have my eyes set on a Daihatsu rocky 1986 model, which was recently auctioned from Army, the engine, gear 4wd is in good condition. I want to query the following things.

    1) Engine is non-turbo. I am not sure if the turbo was removed or it is originally without turbo, any signs?
    2) What is approximate mileage for such vehicles in long journeys?
    3) Any electronic power steering fitting possible? If not i will go with hydraulic power steering.

    Please com up with exact details. You are asking about the engine and mileage and not mentioning whether it's diesel or petrol? It's cc? Gear 5 fwd or 4 speed? Tyre size? etc etc??????????

    Go for a mechanical power steering. The electrical ones normally do not work good in 4X4's while off roading. And in my opinion a 2.8 non turbo with this weight and tire size should give not less than 10 or 11 on highways if driven below 100km/ hr.

    Electronic Power Steering on a Rocky 1986?!
    Hats off to the imagination though!

    On a side note surprisingly kabli Rocky parts are hard to find nowadays and don't come cheap. Nevertheless, 5 speed boxes, power steering and all other stock gizmos should be findable in Peshawar / Rawalpindi.

    I have installed eps in Potohar, its working superbly. My preference for EPS is because its less messy, and if i get desired size motor out of any kabli vehicle, with little machining it can be installed.

    Any reason for that? I was of the impression that as all Cj-5 cj-7 conversions were using rocky, the part supply must have been good
