    Hello all. I guess it is my turn once again for the ROTW, but don't worry, this is not the same cruiser you seen before, but my dad's. I know it is Tuesday already, but just bare with me. I am going to start my write up and post tons of pics tonight. This cruiser has been owned by 3 other cruiserheads all contributing to how the cruiser looks today ( Drexx, Amando & Mike Thompson-all really die hard cruiserheads! I know they were all happy to see this wonderful machine go to someone that loves cruisers too.) . Oh yeah, one more minor detail ;) is that the cruiser was one of the first 80 series cruisers built by Christo Slee and his staff (did I say it was a minor detail ;) ). This cruiser has tons of goodies and I know I will be busy posting must of the mods.. Here are the most impaortant mods:

    nice wagon . Is a blown petrol motor good for rock climbing? Thought they worked best at high rpm.

    AFAIK- a supercharger keeps the close to the same power curve as stock, just with more power. :cheers:

    nice job Robert, your dad's ride is Sick!! I've been wheeling with this rig for the past four years. First when Drexx owned it, then Mondo and now your Dad, it handles everything that is thrown at it. Tell your dad to hurry up and get the Slee 6" springs then the truck will truly be unstoppable:)

    The sliders look lke they can be used as a possible stepping point for gettin in. How practical are they for that purpose?

    They actually don't stick out as much to allow your foot to go in, but they do make for good protection..

    Could you post a source for those battery connectors on the Aux battery and do you know if there are covers available for them?

    Is that winch icon in a stock US guage cluster, or did you custom make that or get a cluster from another country? Nice rig and gotta love all the buttons that fill the blank spots in the dash :)
