I must be getting old !

Recommended Posts

My wife and I are planning on attending the "Ralley on the Rocks" event in Moab this May, and I was checking out some of the YouTube video's from last year. MAN!!! Are you kidding me? Most of those guys don't even wear helmets while climbing incredible angles. I don't think I would even attempt any trail rated over a 3 or so! Especially with a manual tranny. What I'm wondering is Troopers have a history of breaking axles and driveshafts right?. Do you think casual off roading on sandstone with mega traction will cause a breakage? I don't clutch dump ever (knowing that there are some weak links in the drivetrain.) What do ya think? I probably should pick up an extra drive shaft before going huh!

You ought to take a spare rear diff :) really though as long as rear driveshaft is cv style and not ujoint then you should be ok. Or take a lesson from me and pack in a extra timing belt

Sounds like Snowman just HAPPENS to have one for sale........... :lol:

Actually I'm waiting till I have some time to look at the drive shaft and see if it's a CV type. It's an 08' so I'm keepin my fingers crossed that it is the CV type. :(

When I snapped off my tranny output shaft at Moab, it was my fault. Before that I had climbed everything everybody else had and some easier. Most trails have a secondary route around the harder route. Check ahead of time with who ever is running the event, they will / should know.

      I'm not trying to trample flatbeds post about the front ball joints being able to pull out. I just couldn't find his post to reply there. Sorry flatbed. Flatbed found that the bolts holding the ball joints in place weren't close enough to the ball joint stem to fit into it's groove, thus the ball joint could work it's way out. This happened to flatbed and Kinarfi. It could be very dangerous if this happened at the wrong time. I finally got around to checking mine today. The top of the ball joint on the front left had already pulled out 1/8". The bottom one was still ok. I did as flatbed sujested and drilled them out and refitted them with new bolts. Both joints on the right side did not need any work as they were secured ok by the original bolts. To reiterate what flatbed said, be sure to address this potential failure. Just redo them and don't wait for signs of them pulling out.

      I bought a used RTV 900 and was told it is a 2012. I thought I would verify that. I can't find anywhere I can look this up.
       
      KRTV900A61057114 is the product identification number.
       
      Thanks for any help.

      Hey everyone!  My name is Scott, and my wife, kids and I are in escrow on a home that is on 10 acres.  After much back and forth trying to decide between getting a tractor or a side x side for working around the property, I finally narrowed it down to a side x side.  My father has a 2018 Odes Dominator x4 Zeus, so I called him up to get his thoughts on it, as he uses it on his 12 acres out in Missouri quite a bit.  While talking, he mentioned that he is thinking about selling his Odes, and buying a jeep to tow behind his motorhome, so we got to talking, and it looks like I'm buying it from him.  Its a 2018 with 13 hours on it, break in just done, and all fluids just got changed.  I look forward to learning more about the UTV world, and look forward to any input anyone can give me on the Odes brand of UTV.
       
      Thanks
      Scott
