    Making fx svho a cruiser..

    I prefer the seat and color of an fx over a fx cruiser.. I do like the extra stuff on the cruiser though.. Is it possible to add the extra screen to the dash of an fx with the additional info on it? Is it expensive? Also are the pull up cleats worth it.. Hopping someone's explored this..thanks

    What extra screen does the cruiser have on the dash?? I think that's just the 2015 since it shows the trim position on the screen on the right of the dash that does not come on previous models.

    Well the cruiser does have water temp and such. You would need to look at the OEM parts finder and see what the different parts are. I assume there are a few different wires/connectors. I know the new GPS speedo required a different connector for the cruisers so there would be wiring changes

    I have an FX ho cruiser, the water temperature display is a nice feature but the Cleats are not worthwhile, ive used them just a couple of times. I usually just put my dock line around the center of the steering.

    I've heard the steering is "MORE ADJUSTABLE" or "GOES HIGHER" with the cruiser. I don't know how much truth there is to that but worth mentioning since the guy knew the differences with the seats, the cleats, and the right screen.

    The Cruiser steering tilts up higher for stand up riding. I'm 6'2 and my Cruiser steering is perfect. See my avatar pic <-------------

    The extra couple of inches is really nice to have when standing or offshore, but can make things kind of cramped when tilted down & carving in the flat stuff..
