I went down to Phoenix and picked up a new Joyner Renegade R4 a week ago Sunday. I can not say enough good about how I was treated. I hate driving in Phoenix and I am 4 1/2 hours from Phoenix. I called and spoke to Brandon the sales manager and asked if there was any way I could pick the buggy up on Sunday. He said no problem, he had one of his employees meet me there on Sunday. This way the traffic was no where near as bad as during the week days, although the heat was bad. I am used to highs in the upper 70's and lower 80's here in the Gila Mountains and it was 100 degrees there, so I was sweating like the proverbial stuck pig.
I got it home and the next day, I had a couple minor issues, I called Brandon at 3 in the afternoon, the next morning at 10, Fed Ex pulled in with the parts I needed. I am 61 years old and this was the best customer service I have ever received.
About the buggy, I have had 2 Polaris Rangers, a 2007 and a 2009. I had issues with both and one of the issues was broken drive belts. When they break, it is quite a job to get those strings unwrapped from the fly wheel. I also bought a Honda Big Red. The reason I bought it was it was not belt driven and had an automobile drive shaft. This was a decent buggy but REALLY lacked in power. I had to be very careful where I went with it, as if a hill was somewhat steep, it would not make it up. Even an average sized hill, I would be hardly moving by the time I got to the top. I think this was 2 things, not enough power and no lower range.
I am totally happy with the Joyner, the 1100 engine gives more than enough power and this buggy is built to last even in this rock invested country I am in. When comparing the Polaris's I had and the Honda, the Joyner takes home the bacon, hands down. Although, from what I have heard Polaris has made improvements but their prices are in my opinion not in line with the product.
Hey guys went out in the t2 today great ride high speeds , hills lots of mud been a lot of rain here. Slow speeds over rocks down trees think I finally got the air shocks set for now, till I get my own nitro kit. Wow what a difference yes at high speeds there is some body roll but I knew there would be. Went died this trail that has always been a beast and I said to my wife wow that was easy suspension flexed and worked as it should. Front shocks are at about 220cc oil and 355-360 psi nitro rears are at about 330-345 keep in mind rear shocks are larger. So all in all I'm really happy with the out come. But that being said I broke a rear fender ugh and got little play in r/r wheel oh well

See you out there!
I can't seem to locate the oil level add/check/fill on our old KAF450, Mule 1000. I see the oil filter on the drivers' side, but no fill tube/cap. Perhaps I need to pull some other covers off first, but if you know where it is please point me in the right direction.
I have ordered a shop manual, but hoping someone can help with this a bit quicker!
**btw, how do I determine the year of this vehicle? Don't see a tag/plate mounted anywhere obvious.
