Hello from CEN*CAL

Hows it going all, I got here in a hurry started posting without taking the time to introduce myself. Some of you may know me from the "other" forum.

My name is shawn, I live in Clovis, Cali. I a pismo nut!!! Fairly new to rhinos. I got my rhino in June with the motor swaped but I had to finish up all the wiring and other hidden headaches. As of june I have compleately transformed my rig. I just got it running recently and finaly worked out all the bugs and got the front wheels of the floor on the road yesterday!!!

I now have a LT6 +6 Long travel, SS 14" wheels, Pro one body kit, Renegade bench for the back and matching seat covors for the front (not in pic), starting to piece my stereo together. Got the ssv 10" enclosrue. I'm sure I'm forgetting a whole bunch of other crap this money pit has. I got a few pics...I'll let them do some talking.

June when I first got it:

Wow Man!! Big Transformation!!!!..Was the motor set in there when you bought it? or did you fab it yourself?

Yeah, The motor was swapped when I got it...I just had to do all the rest of the work. At first when I bought it I didn't know jack squat about what to expect from it....I thought it was a street bike motor. Its a Honda ST1100 V4...Think its suppose to have 100hp but I don't know much aobut it...I ran it a few times trying to get all the bugs out of it it pushes the rhino just fine...my bud called me this weekend to give me a update on the build and told me that it has MASSIVE Torque and that I can pull another damn rhino along with me up a hill if I wanted to!!! Also said it was much faster than when we first rode it (we were having some chain problems and gearing probs. but sorted it out now)

All I really need now is to get the right axles in from the company I bought the Long Travel from...they said that it was a bit over 6" and I had bought +6 axles from someone else because I thought I was getting a deal....So the axles keept popping out. If I get them by the trip to Pismo I will without a doubt be there to meet all of you and have a great time! Wife already is dieing to go also so its all we need to go . I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best
