Tried to remove my skid plate to access the engine oil drain plug. The plug isn't near an access hole but located between two holes. Can't get a wrench in to remove the plug. Short of drilling a new access hole (which I'm seriously considering), has any one been able to remove the skid plate? Seems to be a nut on the other end of the screw and there's no way I can access that nut. They must have bolted the skid plate on before putting the engine into the frame. Thanks in advance.
We have a Land Master with an attached fold-down windshield. We bought the UTV used and we noticed the seal looked like it might be cracking. It has cracked and separated. Is there a DIY repair kit out there for those type windshields? I hope it can be repaired rather than buy a new one.
I purchased the RZR for farm use, hunting and trail riding. This is what I designed and built for mine to haul my 2 cow dogs & just about anything else. I designed it to hold 2 large soft sided foldable dog cages. The dogs load from the front seats into the cages. There is room under the rack to carry spare tire, jack, tools etc....
Even though I went to all the trouble to give him a place to ride. Ranger still perfers the shot gun spot.
Looking to get into a UTV, having said that I have been doing some research on the trooper. Have many questions already answered, but need the reassurance. I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for, but you can buy a lemon every day of the week.....from anyone. The looks of the trooper are eye catching, the motor sounds like it has potential. The lockers don't sound very good nor does the diff's. Are these a capable 4X4 or do they belong in the desert with the buggy's. Is the manual tranny worth it, or do you wish you had a low gear in the transfer case for bigger rubber. I am not into going 100 miles an hour. How nimble are they in the bush? I like my hunting in the great white north.....as in Canada:)
This is what i am thinking of.
T2 trooper, new cam grind for torque, tuner, 31" silver backs, clutch upgrade.... to start with.
My knowledge of mechanics is moderate and I do enjoy my garage. So I am not worried about have to maintain this machine as all of them need TLC.
Would like honest answers and no salesman crap. Let me know what you all think.
