Re-joined the 100 scene after a brief absence. Quite a Cruiser carousel in the last 8 months or so. From having an '06 100 and an 80, to shedding the 100 and picking up a 200, to shedding the 80 and having nothing else, to getting back into an '02 100. Nice condition for 269k miles. Not a lot new to learn, just a few less ponies and one less gear. No immediate plans, just fun little things that I had on the '06 that I hope to mirror. Will need tires, 60k on current, which opens up a Pandora's box. Leaning towards some cheap 18" Tundras that are everywhere. Then just the standard remove running boards, LEDs, AHC lift, etc. Really enjoying driving it daily, so many more creature comforts compared to the 80 (but sure do miss it's character).

Will be the weakest build thread ever with all of the small bits, but will enjoy updating the small details and all of the little things. I transformed our '06 nicely for our use so hope to get to that point in details.

Stock form currently.

green 80, two tone with gray is the greatest 80 series... love that color combo! triple locked would be icing in cake.

give us your thought between all the different platforms. I would be curious to get your opinion.
They are all very different. I honestly wish I could have one of each all the time. The 570 is just a beast, drives big, but very comfortable and power to spare. Love our road trips in it. The 470 drives more sporty compared to the 570, still solid and big but very different. The 80 is just an 80. Loved that thing, character like no other. Daily drove it and loved every second. I am loving daily driving the 470 with all of the creature comforts, but does just blend in, unlike the 80. Have to get some lift, tires, etc to make it mine. There are a lot of threads on here comparing each in much further depth. Didn't wheel the 470 nor the 570 as of now so those threads can give you much more info.

thanks for responding. I have read a lot of comparisons, but you came back to a 100 and was interested in what you had to say.
Didn't come back to a 100 necessarily on purpose or for any reason. Needed to sell the 80 financially and originally had a line on a cheap 99 LC that fell through. Gave up on that and tried talking myself into a beater car but when this one came up I had to do it. 80's are getting pricey and 100's in my opinion are a better value at the moment if serviced well. All of this of course depends on our intended purpose and budget. They are all awesome in their own right and each have something to offer. Will never own anything else.

Wow you need your own page so we can keep track. :grinpimp:
No kidding. I guess this thread can be it. Definitely will be more LCP products to get! I don't mind what is discussed as long as no one minds my little 'build' inclusions...like today...first oil change by me at 269,391.
