    Thanks John:top:

    You should of seen it before...I had to remove the X-Runner product list (it's a list of EVERY aftermarket part available for the XR and a link to obtain that part; XRU vendor or not. We (the XRU staff) have been putting together for some time now).

    Reason that list was removed was because while I was adding/editing more info...I realized I had too many characters for one post (XRU specifications I guess)...one day I'll finish it and re-post it into multiple posts.
