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

    • Joyner Trooper Power Steering

      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!

    • 2009 Joyner trooper fueling problem

      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?

    • Wanted: Trooper Axle Parts

      I am interested in any old trooper axle parts you may have lying around. Please let me know if your want to sell them.  Backstory: Hey everyone. Last trip out to moab I climbed a wall on poison spyder Mesa while 2 rzr xp1000's and three can am x3 xrc's watched me and didn't dare try. After doing it once I pulled around to show them it wasn't a fluke. One on the can am x3 xrc drivers just looked at me and said "that's steep". On the second try I spread the bell on the left rear axle. I made the climb but now the inner cage slips inside making a loud popping noise as twisting the boot. I mainly just need the inner bell but I am interested in anything you have.
