I've had my '02 for about 9 years and love it. Has been fairly reliable and not lived an easy life. 5.3 isn't the best towing motor but does well enough to tow our VLX through the mountains without...

My arm rest doesn't have any of the flex you talk about (I also have a SS VLX). As for the pic in question, the dash had a major redesign in 2001 and minor one in '03 or '04, which is what is...

ACME outsources their repairs as well.

I have an ACME repaired prop; the repair looks like ass but It performs correctly, but ACME just uses a local joint to fix it.
