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)

    • 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 computer programmer

      There is a company I ran across at the CES trade show this year. They make a programmer that should be able to program the Troopers computer. About $300. The Trooper s computer is a standard Bosch car computer. The only differance is that it is programed for the Trooper. The programmer will program most any car or truck so it should work. The company could probably help is finding which program the computer uses and assist finding out which computer pins to hook to. This programmer will program all aspects of the tuning including things like Pulse width tables, VE tables, Timing tables, prime pulse width, crank pulse width, after start pulse width, warmup pulse width, enrichment pulse widths, acceleration pulse widths. rev limit and more.

    • Wanted: Trooper Axle Parts

      I am interested in any old trooper axle parts you may have lying around. Please let me know if your want to sell them.  Backstory: Hey everyone. Last trip out to moab I climbed a wall on poison spyder Mesa while 2 rzr xp1000's and three can am x3 xrc's watched me and didn't dare try. After doing it once I pulled around to show them it wasn't a fluke. One on the can am x3 xrc drivers just looked at me and said "that's steep". On the second try I spread the bell on the left rear axle. I made the climb but now the inner cage slips inside making a loud popping noise as twisting the boot. I mainly just need the inner bell but I am interested in anything you have.

    • Joyner Trooper Power Steering

      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!
