Hello to all.

Well I just got me a used trooper, (2009), and have a few questions that I haven't seen on here.

First some info on my T2, seems pretty much stock with the exception of a new muffler with the cat removed, It has 31x10.50x15 firestone destination ATs on it, yes they do rub, so I have a new set of swamper TSL, 29x9.50x15 I'm mounting now. It's street legal here in Oklahoma with everything the state requires already on it. .Great toy that goes any where I've wanted to take it so far. Now for the questions, what kind of mileage can I expect on a tank of gas. What weight of oil does it need. What pressure do the stock shocks need to run, previous owner bled them down so now I have to find a place to get them charged. Hope to here from some trooper owners around N.E. Oklahoma. Most people I've told about it an shown it to have never herd of Joyner, they treat it like cheap junk from china until I take them for a ride an go places they cant believe it goes. Actually our ran a wildcat on the top end. :D

welcome I have an 09 trooper as well running 30' zillas no rub except bottom of my extended fenders at full flex. Oil I think I am running 10-30 Castro synthetic and gear oil I run whats in the manual I think its 750-140 synthetic as well. As far as the shocks go I am not sure I run a full air shock for flexing its the stock ones it wont be much try Kinarfis post or message him he played with the shocks a lot. I live in ma and a lot people here think its Chinese junk too till I have to pull someone home or climb that hill rock or mud hole no one can. Theres a lot of good info here some little overwhelming but helpfull

Thanks Charlie, that helps. I'm waiting on my manual from the guy I got this from. I did figure out with no pressure in the shocks you don't want to go fast on my rough blacktop roads, feels like your on a giant air hockey table with no control. LOL. shocks are first on my fix it list.

Thanks Kinarfi. ( Wow, now that's a manual) I found a performance tire shop to charge my shocks to 125psi. $25 for all 4 shocks. (seems cheap enough considering I didn't have to remove them). I'm hitting the sand today at a small local spot so we'll see how this thing handles. Am blessed with a ton of places from 25 - 1500 acres to ride within 20 miles of home. every thing from sand, mud, rock crawling, big open trails and tight wooded trails. Thanks again.
