04 Rodeo specs questions

07-05-2004, 09:58 PM
The wife and I are interested in trading in our 98 Rodeo for the new 04 with the 3.5 DI engine. We love our current rodeo, but I just got to have this new engine. What I would like to know is if Isuzu still made the model with Dana 44 rear axle or they change it up. I only ask because I currently have an Aussie locker in ours and I would love to swap into the new one when I felt like it.

Any input would be greatly appreciated. :biggrin:

Good question! Try it over in the rodeo board too. I know the 2004's with the DI 3.5 have an asian warner auto tranny in them. AW3018E I think?!? It's supposed to be a really good strong/reliable tranny, used in toyota & mitsu trucks IIRC. Just don't know what axle & rear they have in'em. Try the 4x4wire isuzu board too (if you already havent :smokin: ).

I found out that it is a D44. Cool now I know my locker will go right in.
