this post might have been too late, however, my choice would be eitehr patrol or fieldmaster. wag na ang trooper skyroof edition. I used to own one, sold it after 4 years. it has a nice ride, its the most quiet in its class (inside the cabin), its more powerful than pajero at 160hp. one major flaw of the trooper, it's a lemon. many problems with 4jx1 trooper which is fuel injection, rail pressure control valve, rail pressure control valve sensor, etc that could add around P70K to replace and no guarantee that it will not come back. oil gets to mix with diesel. etc. just surf the net, ang dami complaints on this vehicle. last month i learned that isuzu is replacing those things out of good will, but prior to that, many complained on this vehicle.
resale value also sucks! back 2003 when i was deciding to buy 03 pajero or 03 trooper, the trooper cost about P60K more, but resale value right now..naku..ang laki difference between the two. around P150k pataas ang difference.
go with patrol or pajero...dont even think of the trooper.
