Started with a 09 Monster Edition T Rex. I ordered Muzzy's and the MSD straight from the dealer. I experimented with some maps from Dasa / Muzzy and Benchmark. Never really had anything to test off of, but they all ran right at 53 - 55 mph. :)

For the most part I did a little offroading in it, but it was more of a grocery getter / cruiser for my wife while we are in AZ. :)

I did a SSV Works stereo in it, but I'm not "installer" by any means, and screwed the installation up from the word go.. LOL The amp ended up on the front of the bed where it still sits today. Stereo sounds great though. :) SSV works definitely makes a good product!

Whos map are you going to run, at one time Dragonfire was doing the aftermarket Kawi stuff, but I talked to another vendor last night that was working close with Kawi on some new very interesting projects.

After doing some more offroading in it, and going out with some guys that were Long Travelled, it became very apparent very quick, that this is what my T Rex was missing. :)

So I did some research and when it was all said n done, Long Travel Industries seemed to be a step above the rest. So I dropped my Teryx off over there for some upgrades. :) I told Brian it had to be sick and it had to be done by Turkey Day. I have some hook ups in the marine industry so I opted to have the powdercoating done by dana marine products . com 2 stage Candy, Metallic Blue, and the roof is Gloss black. They spend a great deal of time on the roof to insure no orange peel etc.. it looks like a mirror.

I can't say enough about the products / service of Long Travel Industries. They answered EVERY question I had, and spent the time to make sure I understood 100% what I was getting.

The car was done the day before turkey day, unfortunately I had just gotten off a very long flight and was in no shape to pick it up. Brian left his own Turkey day party, came down to the shop helped me load it up, and then gave me directions to get out of town with the least amount of traffic!


We went with a 4 Seat Cage Twisted Stitch Seats, DJ Safety Harnesses, and the LTI Kit with Kings.

Right now I'm running an LTI map.. but after the new year (perhaps before if Brian has time) It's going over to John at the Pro Shop to get Dyno Tuned. :)

Please post your thoughts (good or bad) on it so far.. :)

Round 2 consists of

LTI Doors
HID Headlight (replacement bulbs)
Quick Release Steering / Momo Steering Wheel
Lighted Whip
and they are fixing the rear brake (someone drove it with the e-brake on for 20 miles or so, and completely cooked the rear brake)
Cooler Rack / Cooler

Looks real good. LTI obviously does top notch work.

Thank you for the comments. :)

I have been looking at pricing on wheels and holy smokes!! I remember buying wheels and tires for my quad for 400 - 500 bucks per set..

Now they are 400 - 500 bucks just for the wheels? I don't like the looks of the wheels that say "SS" on the center caps.. I have seen quite a few of them that say that, and none of them really appealed to me.

What's everyone else running?

If you get new rims, I may be interested in buying your stock ones.
12" right?

Looks really cool, are you happy with the TS seats? I rode in a car with the Vortex ones and it felt like a flat board, no support. they look cool thought. but a far cry from the beard or B&S I have ridden in. very sharp looking car though.

It will be awhile before I have enough scratch to buy a different set of wheels.. LOL I'll keep you posted though.

Nice to see a familiar face.. ;) I'm going to pick it up early next week and head straight to the river, so there will be more pics soon enough.

I'm very happy with them! The quality far exceeded my expectations. They make seats with a "deeper" bucket with sides that offer more support. This thing is used for cruising to my neighbors houses, and for my wife to go get groceries etc.. though so I didn't want something hard to get in and out of.

Point in fact Brian is making the doors lower to make it as easily accessible as possible while still having doors. :)

Check out the different models at www.twistedstitchinc.com :) I would highly recomend them.

I think you would like the TS1 or the Excel more..

Sounds good, I'm in the same boat, well not literally... ;)

I'd like some ITP's but my wife would notice them right away then I'd be in a doghouse, not a boat!

Besides, I think the black would go better w/ my camo setup anyways & I kinda like the looks of the black monster editions.

Looks great. I'm interested in a 4 seat cage and really like LTI's radius cage. That's what your's is correct?

As far as wheels, I really like the Motosport Diesel m12's in black. I plan to get a set of 14" ones.

Yes mine is an LTI radius cage.. :)

I was looking at those diesel wheels they look nice! We have a lot of rocks around where we ride though, and I was concerned those little protrusions on the wheels would get beat to hell in one ride, and then the rims wouldn't look good.

Picked it up from LTI and went to the river last weekend for New Years..

Here's the pics with the new additions. :)

I didn't get pics of the lighted whip, or the steering wheel etc.. But you can see Doors and cooler rack etc. :)

Damn Dave the Rex is looking sharp. How did it perform over New Years? Did you guys freeze your asses of at Parker?
