This is a general comment on the support I received from Joyner-USA in Phoenix, AZ. I needed one headlight assembly for my Renegade because the mounting pin was broken. Duct tape and bailing wire held it in place for a few years. To my surprise, they had them IN STOCK. I bought two and kept one of my good old ones as a backup. They completed their move to a new address at 2415 S 18th Pl, Phoenix AZ from their former Riverside location. As a gift, Jake gave me two T-shirts. He said he as most of the parts for my 2014 Joyner Renegade. I looked at his yard and he has several engines and UTVs in stock, mostly the 1100cc engines and several Renegades. Maybe a Trooper or two was buried in there somewhere. Everything was crated and outdoors. I hope he moves his inventory indoors, out of the weather. Their website says their hours are 9:00AM - 5:00PM but their actual hours are 10:00AM - 5:00PM. I arrived at about 9:20AM and no one was there; place locked up. I was a little upset that with a 9:00AM opening, someone should have been there. I was concerned that I made a 70 mile round trip for nothing. Fortunately, one of his employees showed up and told me of their later hours. So, everything turned out fine. I got the parts I needed and two T-shirts. This is based upon a one time, 1st time experience. I hope future vists are just as good.
Recent trip to Moab went great. Trooper performed flawlessly. It out climbs my wife's wildcat and my buddies rzr 4 800. It also out climbs most rzr 1000's because they are afraid to do the climbs I do (scared to damage it). I have the suspension dialed in and the sway bar is an absolute necessity with the dual rate springs. I didn't bottom out once even with a 95lb rear seat/cage and two kids in it. This and I also have the most comfortable rides of the rzr & wildcat I the rocks.

Flat-Tailed Horned Lizard The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) has filed a petition for protective status of the Flat-Tailed Horned Lizard through the Endangered Species Act (ESA). The California Fish and Game Commission is now considering their petition. After several failed attempts to get the lizard listed as protected through the Federal Government the CBD is now trying to get the species listed through the State. Additionally, the CBD has recently filed their intent to sue the US Fish and Wildlife Service for failing to decide if 16 species in California warrant consideration of the ESA. Once a petition is filed, the FWS has 90 days to respond which they neglected to do. Among the 16 species listed in their Intent to Sue is the Colorado Desert Fringe-Toed Lizard, another species found in the dunes and desert areas where many people recreate.
"Both of these actions by the CBD could have huge implications for duners not only in the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area but also in Ocotillo Wells, Superstition and Plaster City Areas where two of these species are located," stated ASA Executive Director Nicole Gilles. "This just shows that their war chest is limitless and our fight will never be over."
