    I'm not to familiar with the Mitsubishi but we have three Isuzu NPR box trucks. They have been very dependable. All three are diesel and get approx 16 to 18 mpg. I didn't like them at first but after we purchased the 1st one back in 98', the rest was history. I placed the order for the second one within two months after the first. Bought the third within a year. Jake.

    Hey Rob, No, I don't plow with the Isuzu's. I have two F-700's with Western plows and a F-250 w/ Meyer setup. Can't say that I have ever seen an Isuzu NPR with a plow on it around my neck of the woods. I believe that I may have seen a Mitsubishi with a plow rig in a truck magazine in the past though. Must be kind of different in an interesting way plowing with a tilt-cab type truck . Jake.

    We have a plow on our GMC W-4 (Isuzu NPR). It does a great job. Just have to remember that it is only 2wd. We have a V-box in the back to help for weight and traction. It also stays onsite in a snow event. We will buy another when time comes due. There great trucks to have.

    Yo Aspen Snow! I agree. I am familiar with the GMC version of the Isuzu. The NPR models that we have have been fantastic. I never really liked them until we really looked into them. Once I became interested, I took notice to all of the businesses in my area that run them. Many have turned to them including our competition. (The main reason why we looked into them). I still look toward Fords for my heavy applications, (Lts-8000's/F-700's), but for a lighter duty application where you do not need CDL, they work great. Jake.
