looking for opinions on several upgrades i want to do

Recommended Posts

i have a 2003 gas 3010 and i want to add a few things but before i do i would like your opinions or suggestions - so far i have put a front and rear hitch on it and i want to add a winch on a plate where i can use it in the rear or the front - all the wires come with it for both hookups - oh by the way ebay has 1 left if anyone is interested- here is a link http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390283603790&viewitem=&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWAX%3AIT - its a front and rear taht sells for 400 bucks and they have it for 139 but its specific to 3000 series mules - i hope its ok to post that if not delete ----anyhow i would like to do 2 things but i want to do it right so if its a bad idea speak up - i want to replace my battery with a larger battery or add an extra battery just for the winch - now how it will get charged or where to put it will take some thought - also i want to put a master switch somewhere to cut everything off - mostly for security reasons but if thats a bad idea then i will scrap it --- tell me your thoughts on all this - one more thing - i would like to put a volt and amp meter on it somewhere just viewing the charging system - something small mounted out of the way but again if thats a bad idea its ok too - i guess i am bored and just want to mess - i appreciate any suggestions

I'm goin to a two battery hook-up I think I'm going to use one of these painless 250 AMP dual battery controller includes a three position switch to control the second battery through the operation of the solenoid.

  1. Switch position one isolates the auxiliary battery. No light.
  2. Position two connects the auxiliary battery while the ignition is on. Green light.
  3. Position three connects the auxiliary battery at all times. Red light.

Kit includes solenoid, toggle switch, pre-terminated wire/connectors, fuse holder, fuse and mounting hardware

. I have my winch set up on a winch cradle so I can use it on the front or rear I have picture in my gallery

You have one that is waterproof and one that is not. 250-amp Waterproof version that features military spec switches and waterproof terminals http://www.jegs.com/.../40103/10002/-1

      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.

      Anyone know of an aftermarket shock that fits a Arctic Cat Prowler 2006 650 H1 4x4?
      The direct replacement isn't currently available and costs $170.00  ea.

      My uncle has a Warn winch he used to have On his gas Yamaha golf cart, he said I could have it if I wanted it, I'm just not quite sure how to hook it up, wiring wise.
      I have no other electrical accessories that are tasking the alternator (15 amp)
      And I can still buy the OEM winch mount or fabricate one myself.
      The mule has 2 electrical accessories hook ups, but it's a fairly small wire, not sure if could handle the load..  I even though about welding up a plate as there is plenty of room to mount another battery for the winch only either under the bed or under the front dash/firewall. And using a deep cycle battery and keep it on a tender.
      A winch would come in handy for moving larger limbs or stumps  or sections of a tree when I'm by myself.
      Any info how to proceed is appreciated.
      As most of you know, Mule 550, ksf300-c5.

      HELP - my wife and i just bought a 2013 joyner trooper 1100 and we rode for 2 evenings with no problems. Went to ride last night and all of a sudden it acted like something was catching up and it didn't want to move easily. Whatever it was must've broke and now it moves with no problem but is making a rubbing/grinding noise somewhere in the backend. Could it be wheel bearing, differential, or something in cv shaft. Any info or similar experiences is appreciated.
