A new XX in the Black Hills!

Back again after a making the mistake of selling the last XX. A week after I was having sellers remorse so I knew I had to find another. Fast forward and I finally found one I wanted and just got home last night after a 19 hour drive. I sure did get the looks with it nestled in the back of my Bronco (lol). Still has the original tires and is in perfect shape!

Funny story - I had that quad in my Craigslist favorites for quite a while. Yesterday I was thinking about getting the money in line to buy it. Today I go into my favorites and it's gone!!

Congrats on the purchase. Looks very clean.

I've seen quads stuffed in the back of minivans but yours looks a lot tighter fit.

2008 700xx with lots of goodies.
Part time IATVHSS racer (when time and $$ allow)

yeah, I'd been eyeballing it for awhile myself but the distance kept me at bay.. until a few others I was thinking about disappeared so I jumped on this one.


and yeah, tight fight but after the wiring on the jeep and then the bronco would light up the trailer I had the hair brained idea to just take the front tires off and wedged my toolbox under the front end... fit just right then! Even had the tailgate and back window up for a nice dry ride home.. ran into quite the rain storm so I'm glad I changed my mind in didn't take the top of the bronco.

Thanks Quick.. yeah, its practically brand new, crazy nice condition really. Sure parts are getting harder to find and all that but for the price I couldn't pass it up. I am wishing I hadn't sold the last one with the l8ton stealth bumper though.. that bumper is the shit. I can't find another. If I did I might have to take one down to the local machine shop and see what it would cost to replicate.

There's a guy on the facebook group that is making some swaybars and I think he might be doing a bumper next.

I created a dreaded facebook account. now I'm just waiting for someone to approve my "joining" the group.


regarding the stealth bumper, does anyone here now how to contact the original makers? I have a local fab shop that can replicate them I'm just looking for a nod from the folks responsible for making them in the first place.

Would you mind trying that number? I couldn't find him on facebook. I really miss my old one, I can't find one for sale anywhere! If he no longer has the means or ambition, I understand
