Isuzu 1997 VehiCROSS Accessories
Isuzu's offering of accessories for the Japanese market VehiCROSS far surpassed the items available for the US market. I'm not sure if this is because the original 1997 issue VehiCROSS was perceived to be lacking in available factory specifications, or if this is common practice in Japanese market vehicles. By the time the VX made it to the US, many perceived upgrades had been made (factory leather seats, larger-displaced/more horsepower engine, etc), however it seems unusual that the large offering of options in Japan was not carried over to the US. Understandably, items such as the Navigation system (keyed to streets in Japan) and the PAL VCR would not work in the US, but why didn't they offer simple items such as the wind deflectors and splash guards?

When you consider that less than a thousand VXes were sold in Japan in the 2 years they were offered, it seems odd that Isuzu would waste the tooling and production of accessories as an opportunity in the US, not to mention the additional revenue potential. In any case, view these images with awe and lust (most are no longer available on the Japanese market, and those that are convert to rather expensive options once imported to the US).

A Translation of Sorts
Way back when I first bought my VX, Isuzu's website had a complete segment on the VX (I now wish I had made a local copy as it is no longer available), including a price list of all the options. I contacted a friend in Japan who was nice enough to translate the list with pricing. I have taken his list and cobbled it together from what I can make out in the brochure offered here. If you click the pages above you will see the result (note that my friend wrote his descriptions out on paper and sent me scans, so there may be inaccuracies. Also, the online list may vary a bit from the pricing on the JDM Accessories Brochure):
