for both. Zap replaced my o7 with a new o8 after I had many problems.
What a great company.
Additional FeaturesI plan on getting a roof rack, reversed sun roof for air flow.

I have upgraded the front suspension and I am replacing all the lights with LEDs.

2008 is a much better vehicle. I have added a pak-trakr and a heater. I plan on doing the 84V upgrade and thats about it. It runs great for around town.
