welcome to the house , ride it like you stole it

keep in mind they will need servicing and repairs , you treat them well in that department and they will service you well and BTW there is no perfect brand .. all of them have lil things along the way that will need addressing , good news there are guys here that will help you through those issues.

the new guy gets to start morning coffee, strong hot and not boiled down to the bitter state please , also bring in a load of wood for the fire pit sit a spell and have some fun.

please fill is you location and signature lines , so later when you do ask a question we will not have to ask a question to answer yours.

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

Just bought it and took it out for the first time this last weekend. It was definitely a great purchase. It had no problems climbing up hill or over rocks at all. Only thing I need to get done to it is the front shocks replaced. Other than that I absolutely love it.

learn fast ... don't lug/pull hard st slow speed in high range , if it lugging/pulling hard shift the bad boy down into first and save your belt a bit .. my first belt change was at 5K miles and could have gone longer but was in there doing PM services and figured why not .
