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 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.

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 ordered A enclosure from Brostar and what a difference it has made. It is much more enjoyable to ride in the cold. Now I am ordering a heater to complete that part of the project. Next year I hope to get some tracks and make it a true go anywhere any time machine. This is truly an awesome toy. Todd

    • New Member from SW Florida and Western North Caroina

      Hello, I am a new member who winters in South West Florida (Fort Myers) and spends the summer in the mountains of Western North Caroina (Robbinsvile). I have a Kawasaki Mule 550 that I use as a do all vehicle out at a small ranch we have here in Florida. When I bought it years ago, I figured that it would just be a toy but boy was I wrong. It has over 600 hours on it and still going strong. I also have a Land Pride Treker UTV model 4220ST which I use in the mountains of NC. It's great for chores and riding the logging roads. My latest addition is a mini jeep (XY XUV-4)that I imported from China. It's going to NC in the spring and I am going to attempt to register it as a Low Speed Vehicle so the I can drive it to town. It's 4x4 with locking, 500cc CVT H,L,N,R, winch, lights, windshield, wiper, etc and even a fm/mp3. Looking for UTV rallies in FL or NC. Vince

    • Reneagde Enclosure

      These are the photos of the aftermarket Renegade enclosure I told you about. The materials used are a better quality than stock and the design is more user friendly for those who want to take the whole enclosure off or on in a matter of minutes. This is probably of more importance to me because of where I live you can have all four seasons in one day. The plastic clears are very thick and the vision is up to glass quality. It has been stitched on the cover under tension to keep it nice and tight. The cover its self is PVC which I'm told lasts forever and the added bonus is cleaning up the mud is a breeze with its non-stick exterior. The photos don't really do it justice so I'll shoot down to the beach and take a couple of promo shots. Cheers Mike.
