Trooper Snorkel

Recommended Posts

I have one of the first 5000 troopers made, so I have the metal deck on the "safari" rack.

I re-routed the air tube from the front towards the back, drilled a hole into the deck, added some tube and bolted it up to the frame of the rack using the same mounting holes the chrome tube had.

Engine breathes much better now.

There is enough slack in the rubber tubing underneath to raise the rack.

Similar operation for the radiator and fan. Engine stays much cooler with it mounted up top.

I also removed the center bar that ran thru the center of the deck.

It was relatively simple to do both.

Hope this helpsyou out Mike.

That's what I call, thinking outside the box.....excuse the pun. I gave up wondering how I could route a hose outside of my Enclosure and as the Trooper tray doesn't really get used that often, I reckon your idea is a good one. Personally, at some stage I'd like to use an air ram on top of the rear of the enclosure roof & then on to a box filter (not the stock 09 one) but that would have to evolve a quick release hose to open and close the tray or a hole in the enclosure.

Speaking of Enclosures, I would be interested in knowing if anyone with a Trooper T2/T4, Renegade R2/R4 or Commando C2/C4 would considered a good quality American made aftermarket UTV Enclosure for their Joyner if available. Like Ernie, I'll start another topic to keep this one clear.

Cheers Mike.

BTW, I also put some extruded metal about 2 inches in front of the radiator so if anything on the deck should get too close to the radiator, it won't smash the fins.

The moving of the radiator and snorkel, really helped me, as I had an overheating problem before doing so.

      I'm working on a 2005 Cub Cadet side by side and I'm trying to remove the front two axles.  I have a slide hammer puller on the inner joint and with all my strength they will not budge.   Anyone have the same issues and is there something I'm missing or a trick of some sort to pull these out?   Any suggestions please and thank you.

      Can anyone help me locate the back up siren?  It is so loud it really hurts my ears.  I'd like to be able to disable the noise or at least muffle it.

      Hey guys,

      While installing the High lifter lift kit in my 2015 Mule 4010 I nicked the piston, strut rod, the shiney rod in the middle that I cant remember the name (no coffee yet this morning). I knew the nick was deep enough to eventually tear up the seal and she'd let loose. Well 3 months or so down the road here we are, its blown out. 
       
      My question is how do I know which strut I have? I see 2 listed in the exploded 45023-1006 and the 45023-7503. The difference is the spring rate or K value. Seeing as I have high lifter springs does it matter the K value? And if that's the case can I use any of the 45023 prefix struts from various other models? 

      Thanks all,
       
      Andrew
