Hard to follow Neowolf's bad ass rig, but here goes.. It all started with a bang.. I owned a 1996 Isuzu Trooper that was really reliable and had a ton of space to haul stuff in its tall and boxy cargo area. It was four wheel drive (part time) and had great ground clearance. The damn thing never let us down. It wasn’t until a lady rear ended me while I was making a left turn that I had the chance to use the insurance money (the truck was totaled) to buy something I really wanted. By this time, a low miles (under 100k) 80 series was within reach price wise (around $10k and under) and the 100 series with their big V8’s were now common place. So I bought my first cruiser with 175k miles on her for $6750. Not bad, but it had tons of body dings and was not in the best of shape. It also didn’t have lockers. I bought this truck before I had any experience with IH8MUD. Man how much did I learn from this site!! So after spending some money trying to get my first cruiser up to shape, I realized that I could just take my time and find one in better condition and with lockers.
