Default 02 gladiator

Dose anyone have any info on this boat.... i believe its been for sale for a while but it looks really clean! I am considering trying to sell or trade my gun for it. I would prefer a staggered gladiator but the this one is in the speed range i want and in the price range.

Lots of hours, especially for a V-tech boat. Heard from reliable source they(motors) have been in and out of boat "more than a few times". Nice boat though, and I've seen it up close.

they are not prochargers, they are vortechs.... they are fine if set up correctly just like anything else...

the OSO gladiator is also an 2002 side by side for much less money...

I'd personally go with the OSO boat, similar set up without the chargers and the 525 is a big improvement over a 500EFI.

Take the 525 boat and then put a little of the difference in money into cosmetics that you like graphics/interior stuff and you will have a better package, lower hours, and probably still come out lower on price.

I was on that boat 2 years ago.The boat had vortech superchargers at the time and ran well oner 100mph. Vortech is 100% better than pro-chargers.The bad news is that two years ago that boat was in what I would consider heavily-used ,fair condition.It was painted by Harold @ grafikworx and is a good looking boat that probably needs some TLC (if not done already)
