Cage mods and Doors

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to share. I am very happy with the way the Trooper turned out. I am an active duty military member who has recently been transferred to Mississippi. No one here has ever heard of or seen a Joyner, so needless to say it gets A LOT of attention. My buddies have nicknamed it "The DOOM BUGGY". HAHAHA

Upgraded diffs, ported the intake throttle body, and head. Still wanted some more, added turbo with an additional cooler/electric fan for the water jacket side. Straightened out the cooling system, upgraded the fuse blocks, pitched the stock shocks and had Ride Tech make me some coil overs. Installed 1/2 inlet and outlet on the fuel cell with a spin on filter and housing and 1/2" fuel line.

Made a few cage mods. Cut out the stock side bar and welded in some, in my opinion, better looking jams, and built the doors. Covered the sides with 3/8" aluminum plate. Removed the stock off road lights and installed 2 LED's, a 48" and a 12". Built a snorkel off the turbo that comes up the corner of the cab on the passenger side and stops under the roof. We do a lot of mudd riding, had to protect the air filter.

Just for kicks for fathers day my boys bought me a Dukes of Hazard air horn, which is popular, obnoxious, super loud, and pretty hilarious. Also installed an American Flag on whip.

I am always after something different and this is it. I like the Polaris, Kawas, Can-ams, and Yamahas. The only thing wrong with them is they are way to popular and anyone can go get one and trick it out with store bought add-ons. I like making my own stuff.

Hope you enjoy, or I spark a few new ideas.

    • 2009 Joyner trooper starting problems

      I have a no cranking issue with my joyner. It has a chery 1100. It will click but nothing after that.  New battery. I tried banging in the starter while holding key in start(old car trick). Now the  starter solenoid won't even clunk. Just hear s click fron the relay now.  My assumption is the starter needs replacing.  Any ideas of other things to check? Does anyone have diese block diagrams?  Got no clue what fuse or relay goes to what

    • Trooper 1100 Turbo Kit?

      Hey guys, so i have built my own turbo kit in house and it works awesome! seeing these turbo kits for sale for 3 and 4k seemed a little steep for me.. i built my entire kit intercooled and all for less then half of that price so i am considering selling these kits.. if i could produce a complete bolt on kit that could be installed with simple hand tools in your garage strait for $1800 and intercooled for $2500 would any of you be inerested? i would like to post pics but not sure how to? i have also snorkled my trooper and not just the air filter but diff vents, the two chrome catch cans (crankcase vent and radiator vent) along with raising the ECM and fuse boxes to head level.. this as well could be sold as a kitfor very little cost. i can also do the work in-house if needed (install all of this for you) for only a couple of hundred... is this stuff you guys would be interested in? Turbo kits will be complete al the way down to an Autometer Vac/Boost guage, fuel controller etc.... i have seen a HUGE increse in power! if you have more questions you can call me at 713-824-8891 i'm in the Houston Texas area. Also Lenny would you mind calling me so i could pic your brain for a min? some questions about this site (how to post pics, stetting up my profile etc.) as well as a few other things. Thanks i love this forum and really look foward to helping in the future! and really like seeing extreme joyners on the trail!

    • First timer. 09 joyner sand viper.

      So I've been in the anything motor lifestyle since I was 8 doing methanol kart racing. Currently I'm building a 04 Z06, 08 Cobalt SS,  an 08 Tundra, and as of last night my first Joyner buggy. I've waited for years for this. And, this is the first forum I've ever joined (next lol to the corvette forum). Currently I'm wheeling a Honda foreman 450 4x4, a built 400 ex, an argo 6x6, a 48v ez go lifted cart, or my geo tracker 4x4. I'm out of Conroe (north Houston TX). I look forward to learning from y'all and feel free if you ever have questions or wanna talk anything wheeling. Thanks for the awesome forum!

    • 2016 Joyner T2 1100cc 4 wheel drive

      I have a 2016 Joyner T2 that is giving me problems engaging in and out of 4 wheel drive.  I have read some older posts that address this issue on some older models, but can't get any of the older pics to open for a good explanation.   I have not taken anything apart at this point.  Hoping some mechanically savvy Joyner owners can help me out. Thanks
