Did you ever like the Prowler? Why did you get the SSR? I own a 02/Prowler, I love the look of the Prowler, I hated the front and back bumper, cheap plastic that belongs on a playground. Some of the other owners took them off but I didnt like the either with them off. It had a rough ride and with the top down, it was like being on a motorcycle. Just my 2cents, I really think the SSR is hot, one cool ride and heavyduty made. I love the retro look!
