TROOPER GENERAL COMMENTS & QUESTIONS, VARIED SUBJECT LINES

Recommended Posts

This is my 2008 Joyner Trooper. The engine is a 1100cc 4 cylinder, 16 valve, 86 h/p, EFI with five speed manual Transmission and front & rear diff lockers. The suspension set up is Double A-Arms in the front with 10" travel & Boxed Trailing Arms on the rear with 12" travel. Brakes are Hydraulic Disc all around with Dual Callipers on the rear. As well as having the biggest engine in UTVs it has also got the biggest foot print with a length of 127", 65" wide and 69" high and a big 13" plus ground clearance. The towing capacity is 2000lbs.

1st gear is a granny gear and I find myself in 2nd, 3rd & 4th most of the time. 5th gear is good for coming home on metal roads. With the Trooper's length and width it is very comfortable on rough terrain with it's suspension seats. This is a big UTV so it's not every bodies choice but for climbing, ripping through mud or a good level of comfort at speed and safety with a 5 point harness, that's what I chose.

I love the troopers!!! Whats going on bro hows the riding over there? Been busy? We sure have... I can't wait until lil Emerie gets here so I can ride once again. I kind of got tricked into a ride when I was just suppose to be going in the parade...well they took everyone who was in the parade straight to the ride... and ending up being on a trail for hours and hours. :o I was kind of scared for the baby...but since the Joyners are so smooth riding it wasnt as hard on her as riding something else. The doc said she was fine...so she has got her first ride in the womb... haha I just cant wait until she can experience on herself..with her bad a$$ mom of course:)

MegZ, there is always something on the go over here. As for sales, man it's bad. Every retail sector is feeling pain & lots of it. When America sneezes, we get a cold, now America's got the flu we are got in the well you know what. The weather is spot on at the moment and was going for a blast this Saturday but something else popped up. I went for a spin a couple of weeks ago & although the track was easy, I enjoyed it. I saw your bump pics & yep she's on her way. If you get to a couple of weeks over due, go for a gentle ride to get things moving along.

Cheers Mike.

You know things did slow down here for a bit in June and july but now its back to the norm with lots of customers looking, talking, and trying to buy! The economy is not doing great...and thats a fact. Have you seen the new 09 catalog yet? let me know its BAD A$$!!!! The t2 hard enclosure is by far one bad outfit! I love it!!!

MegZ, I have seen the catalog on TJ USA's site. Do you know anything about a Hard Enclosure for the T4 yet ? I need a $ asap for someone.

Cheers Mike

I'm still waiting on to hear when we can get the 4 seat renegade and 4 seat trooper... but we have a Camo t2 enclosure coming and guess what... I just sold it two days ago.... So we may paint it to put on our red one or blue one...to pimp it up:) I will send pics when it happens.. I will keep my ears open also and if I hear anything about the 4 seat enclosures I will let you know.

Thanks for that MegZ. Painting the other enclosure should be an easy job but what type of paint would be best? Maybe vinyl spray on paint is the only option.

Cheers Mike.

No prob. we have a guy who does our custom paint jobs here... It will be whatever he suggest will be the best for an offroad vehicle. :)

Finally Pics but I maxed my space. How or when do we get more?

Kinarfi has already noticed I have reversed my tires. I did this nearly a year ago when I was playing in some dune sand in Mexico. I was trying to get some paddle action going. Well, it didn't work but I found out the tire rode smoother & quieter reversed on hard surfaces with no lose of off-road performance. The lugs in the correct direction are needed for the cleaning action when playing in the mud. So, YES they are reversed on purpose!

rocmoc, I was reviewing old threads and post to begin organizing subjects so others can find what input they need. Easier then reading the entire bunch of threads to find it. Anyway, I ran across this post where you tried reversing your tires. Thanks for trying them that way, I wondered about the same possible paddle action by doing that. I guess I won't need to try it now.

Out riding today and again flying thu some washes and ruts when I heard a clunk. The second time I brought the Trooper to a quick stop. Couldn't find anyway so carefully drove it back to the house. After the Trooper had cooled, I put a jack under the rear lifting the wheels off the ground. Put the trans in gear and twisted the wheel back and forth. Then I saw it, the diff lifting up & down and clucking. The top wield broke away from the support. Boy did I feel relieved thinking I may have broken the diff. This is an easy fix and will be stronger when I am finished. Silver lining, it broke now and now at Moab.

What do ya'll think about automatic in the trooper? Better or worse?

I personally like a auto as much as a stick. In a lot of cases, if you have enough horsepower, an auto is better. I have an auto in my Diesel Ram and love it, much easier to drive. IMHO, an auto is much more forgiving and will over come some lack of off-roading experience.

      I have purchased a 650cc Utv that is in good mechanical condition but the Electrical system is a mess and is not my strong suit. I have purchased a new Regulator, coil and Distributer but I am having trouble wiring it all up as some of the wiring has been cut and removed. I have found a wiring diagram on line but is not colour coded.
      My first job, of many, is to connect up the Rectifier Regulator. On the wiring diagram it has 3 wires running to the alternator (2 only wires currently as pictured but 3 pin plug) and one wire running to the positive of the coil. 
      Can anyone advise what wires goes where please? I assume the red wire from the rectifier will run to the +coil.
      Regards Mark
