Thanks. I run the same prop on the same boat, but a '16 with the Raptor engine. Here's my data over a lot of props FWIW. I collected all this a couple years ago to find out which prop would drop my RPMs the most at my preferred cruise speed as well as give me more top end.
Removing the tow hoop is easy but you need to learn how to slide it in and out without it binding up. Removing the board racks is a simple set screw. The tires get removed to load up the weight on the rear axle so you don't need to change any suspension. It also makes it easier maneuvering the trailer into its spot. Then the rest is just deflating the remaining tires. To make that easy Amazon sells tire deflater used by the off road folks.
I loved my 04 VLX. wakeboard wake was good and the surf wave was decent. I love my 2011 even more with a power wedge and added plumbed in ballast. The surf wave is waaay better than my 04. I recently got a surf ride on a new 23' Axis and without even dialing it the surf wave was outstanding and a lot bigger than my 2011.
The 2277 has a 1.50 cup, so the next logical step would be a larger diameter prop. The md6 is just loafing at surf speeds, plenty of reserve power, so I think I could lower the rpms some. Mind you, my boat is a 22 LSV, a bit lighter than the 23
craigslist ad has been deleted. it either sold or got caught as a scam....
I also have a Sunscape and agree that it is a good starting point for upgrades. I prefer it over the wakesetter because it doesnt have the annoying graphics and I can build the ballast system as I want. And the much lower price point. I'm not into the big stereo, but my tower was one-wired for speakers.
coincidentally, I'm adding GatorStep and an FAE this weekend.
