ok, i was feeling a little inadequate today. i took a good buddy out to show him some of my favorite trails. seems he's done a little work on his cruiser. he's the one that inspired me to get mine.

i don't know every detail on this thing but he says he's never posted pics of it anywhere so i thought i would.

this i know:

f/r arb
soa/ome
custom interior cage/bull bar
350
atlas w super, super low gear
lexus heated seats

and yes, he wheels it alot.

he's been building this thing for years and lots of $$$.

so point being, i kinda just limped behind him with my stock 60. i'm starting to see what all those upgrades are for now.

i have more pics if interested.

oh, and a question. i've been having an ongoing problem. when i strain my engine (usually offroad), sometimes my idle just drops way way down. it runs, but the idle's low. i adjust the idle screw on the carb and it's fine. then 5 minutes later i have to turn it down to the original setting. like it fixes it's self. any ideas?

is it still considered SOA if it is coils? that cruiser is pretty bad ass. that looks like a pretty hefty gas tank.

i'm a newbie so i just saw the front spring pack over the axle. i don't even know what's up with the rear suspension. i know he went with me to try out some mods he made.

new driveline and four more inches of lift.
