    Supercharger, OME lift w/ LR UCAs, running boards, toolbox, extinguisher mount, skidplate, N-Fab light bar, 40" R.I. LED bar, WO seat covers, TRD intake, Weathertech mats and visors, stubby antenna, hood struts, LED interior lighting, Hella Supertones, and other stuff I'm forgetting.
    What are the cheesy 80's movies that you still love and have to pull off the shelf now and then?
    I don't mean the high production value classics like Back to the Future, but the bad acting, poor special effects, but still awesome ones.

    I'll start off with a few of my own:

    The Wraith (young Charlie Sheen in this one)
    The Last Dragon
    Critters

    I've got tons but want to hear yours!
