I am always amazed by the price of side by sides. No doubt, they are cool - I've driven a couple (even tipped one over!) and they are fun. But I could never get past the fact that they are basically a toyota pickup scaled down. Newer ones seem to be getting even bigger.

So, finally put my money where my mouth is.

Very cool. Toys are bad ass machines. You're going to have fun with that.

I remember when those trucks seemed decent in size and now they seem small compared to the P/Us on the road. I had a '89 with the 22RE engine and you couldn't tear it up. However, it couldn't get out of the way of itself should you need to lean on the gas.

I wish I still had it as it is the perfect size for an off road hunting vehicle.

So far:

-Fixed driver's side window that wouldn't roll up.
-Cleaned entire intake (was not pretty) and new air filter
-New plugs, wires, cap, rotor.
-Adjust rear brakes so they work.
-Replace stupid "theft deterrent" lug nuts on my pimp rims


To do:
-Belts
-Remove that stupid roll bar
-Replace Clutch and slave cylinder
-"Adjust" rear bumper so I can open the tailgate
-Pull front third member and see WTF
-Look at birfs and see WTF

I had an 89/22re that I drove the hell out of. Wish I had kept it instead of going new F150, but it was in pretty sorry shape by the time I got rid of it. It took an incredible amount of abuse. Has been re-built and traveled most of the country now.
