Cab enclousure with heat?

Recommended Posts

Does anybody have a cab enclosure with heat? How do you like it? I like going to Western Md. in the snow 12-24" in the mountains. Do you think the Trooper can go in drifts 24" deep? We get the 4 wheelers stuck in the deep drifts, and after about an hour it gets mighty cold from the snow blowing in your face.

I've just got a canvas enclosure without heat and that's all good for me but I'm 3 hours from the nearest snow fall. Not to cold here. Welcome rockfish777 by the way.

Cheers Mike.

I dont have a enclosed cab, but I do have one of those Coleman mini propane cylinder heaters that are used in golf carts and it works great on a UTV.

I have the cab enclosure but no heat ... the cab helps keep the wind off quite a bit mind you. As far as going through snow up to 24" deep I believe you're going to find it pretty rough going. I had my trooper out in the snow last winter and it always got stuck in the deep stuff .. hangs up in the centre. Now if you're riding some place where you can keep your speed up then that might be ok, but as soon as you slow down, expect to do some digging.

Good luck with your trip.

I installed a "Summit Racing SUM-991102" under the front of my trooper and used the duct kit to pipe it in. even without a cab it keeps me pretty warm at slower speeds with the windshield. I was a little concerned about coolant flow coming from the front of the head only but my worries have been put to rest so far. I am looking at having to tear down the motor this summer anyway after the air cleaner incident so I figured it would be a good time to gamble. Only problem I have is coming out of the hills doesn't work the engine hard enough to keep it warm. Drive faster I guess?? :P

We recently received 24" of snow in Central Virginia and used this as an opportunity to put the Trooper T2 through some of the worst.

In 24" of powdery snow the Joyner Trooper T2 will move and even go up slight hills. Once the snow became more dense, the front of the Trooper would compact the 24" of snow to the 14" of ground clearance and high center on the newly formed snow pack.

Snowplow Option for the Joyner UTV Line

Team Joyner just came out with a new snow plow option that retails in the $600 range. The blade is raised and lowered using your stock winch. With this snow plow on a Trooper T2, I was able to go through the deepest drift because I would set the blade to my skid plate height with it turned completely to the side. This accessory allowed me to assist the Red Cross in the rescue of an old lady stuck on a mountain where no 4x4 trucks were able to go.

Welcome Jake, the more dealers, the better for all of us and that's a great story about assisting the red cross. Thanks for the info on the snow plough too. What's the lastest on the 650cc engines, are they a gone burger? I had a look at your website and like the way you have set up your business with a different approach making it more personal and offering different services. I reckon you're do well.

Cheers Mike.

Welcome Jake and good job on the rescue. That had to bring some attention to the Trooper.

The rescue was in the remote mountains and was undocumented by any media. With so many missions that day, there wasn't any time to even think about taking some pictures.

It's not the Trooper nor the pictures but the rescue. It's getting harder these days to find people that are willing to consider someone else rather then their own personal greed. Again, good for you and you get a "That a boy". You know the old saying, if you get 1000 "That a boys" you get to have lunch with the boss. Unfortunately in todays world, if you get just one "Awl shit", you start all over again. :o:angry: I'm sorry, I just heard on CNBC that 38 companies gave out $150 billion last year in bonuses. A new record. :angry: This makes the good guys stand out and the bad guys even worse.

      I have a 2009 Trooper that when I first start it it runs great but after about a min it starts to cut out under acceleration but clears out when it gets revved up.  I downloaded the manual from   Joyner-usa.com   but it doesn't help much,  Mine doesn't have a OBD port on it and my son who is a mechanic said he can wire one in if we have a wiring diagram for the CPU but the wiring diagram of the CPU that is in the manual is for a 3 cylinder engine.  The manual talks about a MIL light that can flash out a code but I don't know where that is and even if I did find it they  don't tell me how to read it.  I have tried the coil and the map sensor and that didn't help I checked the TPS and it checks OK.  I emailed Joyner and all I got from them is there should be a OBD port on it and then they said they checked and found some don't have it,  No help from them. Anybody run into this problem or know were I can turn to get some help on this, even a good wiring diagram of the CPU would be a big help.
      Thanks for you help

      Hello there, I have 4 T2 troopers, 2 of them start and run like Champs, 2 of them have the issue. They will crank and crank but not start. Takes about 20 to 30 minutes to get them going, then they will run all day long and fire up at will every time. It's just the cold start they have a problem with. Since I have 2 that run good, I have swapped every part you can think of from the fuel system to ignition system with no success. I'm pretty stumped and am looking for any advice

      I had been wanting to install power steering on my T4 for years so I went to the salvage yard last weekend and bought a complete column (minus airbag) out of a 2009 Nissan Versa for $125 with the ECU.
      It was a fairly simple install. The long shaft that fits to the Joyner steering rack actually fit perfectly into the Nissan column. Had to weld up a U joint on the Nissan column to make it a straight shaft and fab up one simple bracket. Connect power and ground plus a switched 12v and now I can steer with one hand!

      Fuel pump runs but nothing is getting tô it. I tried putting a vacuum on the outlet hose of pump and it wouldn't pull anything. This machine sat for a year and a half unused. Is there a way to prime the lines?  What could be the cause of the fuel not getting tô the pump?
