Trooper muffler

Recommended Posts

I am looking to upgrade or replace the factory muffler on my T2. Im not necessarily looking to increase performance, I just really want to quiet it as much as possible. I ran across this item online:

Muffler for Trooper T2 [Muffler - 1100cc T2] - $180.00 : Va Dune Buggy, Big Go Karts For The Big Kid In All Of Us.

Anyone have knowledge or experience with this product? I dont want to be doing a bunch of hacking so am looking for something more or less bolt on or minimal modification.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Do a search for trooper muffler or look at old posts. This have been covered in the past. Look at my pics in my gallery & my past post, I have a quiet muffler. My muffler setup was a lot less money. BUT this new muffler you found has not been covered.

That one looks pretty sharp while it's clean, wonder how hard it would be to clean back up after a day in the dirt and mud, but I do like the heat rap, I was and still am concerned about mine being a source of burns. Lenny found two Harley Davidson mufflers at a second hand store and made one for each of us. I really like the sound of mine and it looks good too, and when Lenny builds something, it's built good. If you want to do it your self, I've posted an elbow source somewhere, probably under mufflers if you do a search.

Thanks for everybody's input.

I decided to have the local shop where I purchased my trooper fabricate a muffler for me. Figure this is best and easiest as I am having them throw on a new set of 28" Interco Swamp Lite tires. :)

      First I’m going to start off by telling you how the problem started. 
      I have a XY Ground Pounder with the 1100cc Chery Engine; I sunk it in a mud hole and had water up middle ways of the muffler; about 10 seconds of being stuck and hitting the gas all of a sudden the motor started making a tapping noise that sounded like it was coming from the head (the buggy never died while I was stuck on the mud hole). I finally got pulled out and had to proceed to drive the buggy out the rest of the trail back to my truck (buggy still making the tapping sound and I lost about half of my power and had to keep the buggy going at around 4,500RPMS).
      I got the buggy home and first thing I drained the oil and dropped the pan to find water, dirt and metal shaving in the oil. I proceeded to check the rod bearings and mains; they had very little play but had a lot of wear; I also took the head off and inspected everything and took the pistons out everything looked fine up top. So I ordered a new crank, main bearings, rod bearings, head gasket and bolts; after waiting for a month for the parts to come in I finally got the block and everything clean and put the new parts in and torqued to spec. I got it all put back together and new fluids, plugs and filter put back in and everything aligned and put back in time while TDC. I started the buggy and instantly it’s still doing the same thing; so I took the head off and inspected the springs and valves but everything seems to be good. I also did a compression test on each cylinder with great readings. 
      Has anyone ever had the same problem or know anything?
       
      Thanks for taking your time to read.

      This is rocmoc/Michael one of the first on this forum when the Joyner was one of the most active topics.  First an update of others.  The earlier members will also remember Lenny and Jeff.  With myself we organized the first Jamborees in 2009-2012.  Sadly if you have not heard we lost both Lenny and Jeff in 2018.    A great loss to the community.  Myself:  Still around but rolled over to Jeep and Arctic Cat Wildcat.  The Wildcat  design still remains me of my old 2008 Trooper.  Doing well as the Last Man Standing but cleaning out the garage.  Found some New and used Trooper parts I will list in the parts section.  Wanted to give you all a chance before I list on Ebay.  As many of you knew Lenny listed a lot of stuff on Ebay.  Will I partnered a lot of the stuff with him and I still have stuff.  Take care and I will check in for message should you want to ride.  Still make it to Utah every other year and am still in Southern AZ.

      Hey people! I'm looking for a ring and pinion  set for my rear diff. The bolts that hold the pinion shaft cover in place decided to pull threads and my pinion gear broke some teeth. Any help would be appreciated! I priced out a new diff and it's worth a lot for something that is prone to failure. Thanks in advance

      Well, after a bad experience with repairs to our Trooper, Lloyd tore into the engine himself. We originally wanted to save time by hiring the engine rebuild out, but that bit us square in the butt. Remember the discussion about Silverbullet motorsports in Yuma??
      Stay tuned....we'll let you know what happens. 
      Has anyone rebuilt the engine in these troopers?
