    Well everyone. I just got back from Iraq and came home to this sweet little truck and have started the process of making it my own already.

    2008 Base Model

    So far I have done tint (35% on the sides and 5% on the rear) and a new head unit (Pioneer AVIC X920BT). More to come VERY shortly.

    I'm SORRY it is dirty. Stupid well water from the sprinklers got on it.

    Looking good. I tried to buy a ruckus a coulpe years ago when gas got so high but they were on back order. I saw an article in one of the import mags about how they modify them (kinda like yours) and it got me excited. Not to mention 90/mpg.

    here she is washed and waxed with the Line-X on the Front and Rear bumpers, Grille, and Badges.

    It also goes BUMP now with my new all JL Audio sound system.

    Also added the CravenSpeed Shorty Antenna (no loss in reception on my favorite stations)

    Closer look at the Line-X (Thanks to Tim at Line-X of Virginia Beach for giving me an awesome military discount)

    Thanks! I really only have a few more things to do to it then I will be satisfied. I am spending a ton more on my scooter so that is slowing me down with the modding on the truck.

    Looks much better. I almost bought a Ruckus... but put a few thousand down into my Harley Scoot. Those damn things hold value like crazy.
