Just washed the Trooper, gets one bath a year, LOL (just kidding, it gets at least two). It is incredible how much the color has faded. Keep in mind my Trooper is stored in an enclosed garage out of the sunlight. The only time it sees the sun is when it is on a ride. I do plan to paint it this next year but still the finish only lasted two years. On it positive note, it still looks GOOD!

Mine has faded quite a bit as well ... and not evenly. It also is stored indoors and only sees the light of day when I'm out riding.

I have a red one which is stored inside and the hood is very faded. My son has a blue one and it hasn't faded at all.

The "Red" seems to be the worst. I have 1 customer w/ a "RED" Renegade that is sunburnt..... the hood is actually black from the sun. The problem exists because Joyner didn't use paint the had UV tolerant pigments, so it fades & burns. The other colors are much better but will show some fading over time.

If you look around at the cars and trucks, you will notice that "Red" & "Silver" are the 2 most problematic colors availble. They oxidize the worst, and require the most attention to keep looking good. Using a good, high quality automotive paint will yield great results. My wife does custom painting of Golfcarts, helmets, & snowmobile hoods. I have noticed quite a bit of difference in the stability of different colors over the years. JMHO

Yup like that Silver stuff. Currently have two Silver ones now and one of my past race cars was Silver. I would NEVER claim this myself but my better 3/4's had a Silver Min-Van when I met her but long gone.

I fave is BMW Alpine Silver and that will be the color.

What about rhino lining it or some other spray on liner? I have a red that is faded real bad and I was thinking about doing that. What are your thoughts?

We also wrapped our trooper, costs about $350 at our guy, less permanent than rhino line and if you get bored with the design you can peel it off and do something different

Would not do Red, thinking more like Black or Green. A wrap could be good I would probably do a camo wrap. I'll look into it. Thanks!

Does anyone know the surface area of the T4 if I was trying to get just the panels wrapped or painted?

Thanks,

Robert

      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?
