He was looking to trade in his conversion van for a suv. Back then, options were limited. There was the range rover (too expensive and badly reviewed) and whatever jeep had made at that time. The dealer did not have a cruiser, so he took the brochure (which I still have) and left. Next week the dealer called him back, and said he had one in grey from Arkansas. My dad cleaned up his van and told him he would be there in the morning to see it. The van had a very bad engine due to my older brother leaving the old oil filter gasket on and almost burning the engine up. After 30 minute of driving it would smoke badly and run rough. My dad takes the family to the dealer, and promptly turns his van off. After an hour of talking, and us kids climbing over every car in the showroom, it came time to talk trade it. Luckily the dealer only drove the van around the block before it could act up, and he gave my dad a decent trade in value for it. Finally the cruiser was ours. We spent the next 9 years or so taking it to Colorado every summer, and I remember sleeping in the cargo area a lot. In 1999, the car was then transfered over to me for $1. It wasn't till around 2001 that I put the lift on. I put it on some 33x12.5 mud terrains, and that thing was a beast. I took it to Disney, Oklahoma, below the Grand Lake Dam, to offroad. It also say some action behind Chandler Park on its dry creek beds and other obstacles. Recently: I came out to Colorado State University for college, and my parents did not want me driving cross country on such huge tires (they thought they were huge, I didn't). So I went with some 32.5 all terrains, and they were happy. Which really weren't that much smaller, but they looked smaller. Since I was away from my friends garage, I really never took the cruiser off road up here. I have added an ARB bull bar which I bought used from a guy who was moving. He had hit a tree with it, and it barely bent the right side. And within the last month, I became an owner of some sweet Solid Rock Off Road Sliders (Thanks Jim!). I also just added a VDP center console. Enough chat already here are some pics. All my early pics of offroading are all in Oklahoma, so the following are what I have with me in Colorado. These first few pics are 2 before the lift, and 1 after. They were taken in almost the same place, so you can see the evolution of Hogmauler.
