Slight Differences

Recommended Posts

Brostar, I notice from your pictures that there are subtle differences in our rigs, Steering wheel, is you horn in the dash like mine or in the steering wheel, my winch is higher and can't be moved to the rear, and on the deck of cargo bed, my floor is above the support bars. <_<

Kinarfi, your model is the upgrade or 2008.5. Yours is better all round with the improvements that Joyner have made. My horn is in the dash and my deck of the cargo bed is solid checker plate steel. Your design is obviously a lot lighter in the rear. You should be able to take your winch out of the front if needed for the rear. It's about a ten minute job. I like the graphics on the new model too.

Cheers Mike.

Our earlier models also have side mirrors. The newer models do not have side mirror. The newer models also have a handhold for the passenger, dune antenna mount, angle braces on the rollbar, access holes to service the engine in the bottom floor, bigger brake disc, gas tank under the seat instead of up front and supposedly more clearnce on the fenders. I will call them changes as IMHO not all are upgrades. I had the chance to exchange my rear box/storage area for the lighter unit with the plastic and turned it down. Did not think the weight diff. was worth it. If & when I run at the dunes, I will remove the entire unit and install a sheet of aluminum diamond plate to get rid of the weight entirely.

It sure is. We call it other names out here too but that's the correct name for it.

Cheers Mike.

I like that idea better than what ours came with. I worry about it melting in the heat.

I have two of the new rear plastic trays but what concerned me with them was people riding in the rear & going through them onto the engine after a bump. The do look fairly solid having said that. The plastic would handle a fair bit of heat before they melted Cinda but if you are worried about, an engineer could cut some diamond plate to fit in 1/4 of an hour.

I know, but I wait it gets worse. I liked your idea so much with the nail & screw that I'm pinching that as well.

Cheers Mike.

From what I have gathered from reading all the posts and looking at the pics of the Troopers I have already has the fuel pump next to the tank and the latches for the rear rack are behind the seats. Does any one have any idea what kind of mileage they get I Have never bothered to figure it out but I think its good.

What about the T4, I haven't done well keeping track. I guess I will do that. I seem to get about 8mpg, but I'm not sure if the Fuel Gauge is correct all the time either.

      Hello everyone,
      I am a mechanical engineering student who is trying to design a UTV to be used by maintenance workers around parks and university campuses. One of our unique selling points was that the rear cargo area would be modular so it can be swapped out for different "rear modules". For example, it could just be cargo hold but also a cage, refrigeration, more passenger seats or carrying woodchip etc.
      What would be an easy way of detaching the different rear modules and swapping with a new one? A way of securing it to the frame but also allowing it to be removed with ease. From what I've seen, most UTV bodies are directly bolted to the frame.
      Thank you for reading.

      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!

      Mule Pro MX question:  Is there a trick to removing the center floor panel or "tunnel" other than removing the 8 plastic rivets?  I removed the rivets but the panel won't pop up easily, and I don't want to force it with a crow bar so as not to break some tabs or other hidden parts.  Accessory mount instruction attached.  Thanks for your help.  rider
