New 2014 Trooper T2

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to decide whether to buy a new 2014 Trooper T2. I would like to know how reliable is this product and be able to talk with someone who owns one of these UTV's.

I've had my trooper for 2+ years and other than normal maintenance have done nothing to it. It depends on what your going to do with it. I live in East Texas and my T2 does a lot of work on the deer lease but it aint so great through the woods because of it's size.

I have an 09 trooper and I have done a lot to it. Honestly its been pretty dam reliable!!!! few issues here and there but you will have that with anything. I ride with guys that have rhinos rzrz and quads and at some point they have all been stuck. I live in MA and I go to NH a lot with mine. I do a lot riding 20mph and under and up in NH 40+ mph. My friends call it the redneck tow truck cause I am the guy that gets people unstuck.or the beast. The factory airbox sucks do yourself a favor and buy or build a snorkel and change all the fluids they tend to put the cheap shit in them. Theres a lot of info here and these guys are awesome on this site!!!! I think for the money you get a lot with the trooper I have looked several times at an rzr but I cant stomach the price tag and I dont care for the belt drive on them. Everyone has a different style of driving and lives in different environments so just cause one guy has an issue doesn't mean you will.

Just my opinion i have had mine 3 years now I think and it has 1300 miles on it and only left me stranded once. GOOD LUCk

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for the info so far. I am in southwestern New Mexico up at about 7000 feet with lots of dirt roads and smaller trails. Basically a whole lot of nothing. I need a vehicle that will bring me home at the end of a long ride. Probably only low to medium off road duty. Crazy is not me just like to run the ridges and canyons.

Hey quicksnake! I've not been on here for a long time, but I wanted to answer your question. Hubby and I bought our 2008 Trooper T2 brand new, we now have about 10k miles on it. Outside of a few minor issues in the very beginning, we've had very little problems with it. We take it everywhere. We had a mfg issue from the get-go with the rear diff, which the dealer replaced. We had a BO fuel pump. The dealer upgraded the front and rear drive lines because the originals were sub standard. That's about it. I would recommend one for sure!

so much depends on the use/abuse,maintenance..and initial build/pdi ..we have a customer that has 3 machines in sask.canada that they use for work...meaning they take them into places they do not want to drive their 4x4 pick ups...they have 2 2008s,with I believe,1 with aprox 20,000km (12,500miles) and the other with 43,000km or aprox 26,000 plus miles (as of spring 2014) they also purchased a 2014 to add to their fleet...they work the trooper,give them maintenance and have had to do minor repairs...just saying...myself,airborne in 4wd with both diff locks engaged...I had to put a rear diff in (mines a 2008)

      I have a 2009 Trooper that when I first start it it runs great but after about a min it starts to cut out under acceleration but clears out when it gets revved up.  I downloaded the manual from   Joyner-usa.com   but it doesn't help much,  Mine doesn't have a OBD port on it and my son who is a mechanic said he can wire one in if we have a wiring diagram for the CPU but the wiring diagram of the CPU that is in the manual is for a 3 cylinder engine.  The manual talks about a MIL light that can flash out a code but I don't know where that is and even if I did find it they  don't tell me how to read it.  I have tried the coil and the map sensor and that didn't help I checked the TPS and it checks OK.  I emailed Joyner and all I got from them is there should be a OBD port on it and then they said they checked and found some don't have it,  No help from them. Anybody run into this problem or know were I can turn to get some help on this, even a good wiring diagram of the CPU would be a big help.
      Thanks for you help

      Hello there, I have 4 T2 troopers, 2 of them start and run like Champs, 2 of them have the issue. They will crank and crank but not start. Takes about 20 to 30 minutes to get them going, then they will run all day long and fire up at will every time. It's just the cold start they have a problem with. Since I have 2 that run good, I have swapped every part you can think of from the fuel system to ignition system with no success. I'm pretty stumped and am looking for any advice

      I had been wanting to install power steering on my T4 for years so I went to the salvage yard last weekend and bought a complete column (minus airbag) out of a 2009 Nissan Versa for $125 with the ECU.
      It was a fairly simple install. The long shaft that fits to the Joyner steering rack actually fit perfectly into the Nissan column. Had to weld up a U joint on the Nissan column to make it a straight shaft and fab up one simple bracket. Connect power and ground plus a switched 12v and now I can steer with one hand!

      Fuel pump runs but nothing is getting tô it. I tried putting a vacuum on the outlet hose of pump and it wouldn't pull anything. This machine sat for a year and a half unused. Is there a way to prime the lines?  What could be the cause of the fuel not getting tô the pump?
