TROOPER T2 REAR SEAT ??

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am in the market for a Utv, I have really been thinking about the trooper, the question is if it is possible to add a rear bench seat or 2 beard seats like on a rhino. I like the trooper package but really want to add a rear seatfor my daughter and i dont want the lenght hat comes with the t4. Are there any rear seats offered or would i be able to add one, I am able to tig weld and have a full machine shop at my acess but am wonder if the seat would fit or if it would mess up the weight balance with people in it ?

Thanks Anthony

Well we went to Berts Mega Mall to take a look at them and we really liked what we saw. I am going to wait til after X-mas put am planing getting the T2. I will have it at my buddys sand car shop to build a rear cage,brush gaurd,adding to the front cage and building doors. I am also going to get with my friend who owns beards seats and see if they have something for the rear or see about building a seat to fit the trooper.

Be careful about putting things on the trooper you don't need, the car is already heavy. I am geeting ready to do my front shock mounts, i am going to get rid of some of the tubbing in the front tha you don't need. I lowered my rear diff so that is going to let me lower my radiator which will let me lower the rear deck for the rear seat. everything i do i keep in mind that i am trying to loose weight. If you are goingh to do anything, change the shocks, it makes a huge difference.

I want the back seat just to put my daghter in to cruise around but nothing crazy with her. I want the doors for a bit of saftey while thrashing in the desseret. the doors would only be a 3/4 or 1 inch thin wall tube as a frame and alumn skin.

Do ou have details about lowing the diff or whats required

you need some tubing 1 1/4 and some tabs so you don't have to use the old ones. cut the old crossmembers out, lower the diff with the drive-line hooked up, make shure you can get all the bolts out and start welding it back in. As far as the doors the trooper is not like most utv's it is pretty hard to roll and have your legs come out. Where you notice the extra weight is in the sand, try to keep extra weight off.

A WORD TO THE WISE, WHEN WELDING ON ANYTHING THAT HAS A COMPUTER DISCONECT THE BATTERY OR TURN THE MASTER SWITCH OFF.

That sounds really wise and like something easily overlooked, Thanks

I agree, i worked at a dealer and have seen it done, I also do alot of side work on hotrods and race cars and all batt are removed before welding. I would suck ti kill a $1000 worth of Msd stuff because you forgot.=, but have seen it done

      Hey guys just bought a 07 trooper. Previous owner stated it ran great etc prior to clutch job then had issues. I drained tank, replaced plugs etc. found one of the injectors connectors was not connected and plugged it in. Solid 50psi fuel pressure.  It starts easier than previously on 3 cylinders but still runs very very poorly. I’m thinking the sound I’m hearing is it detonating at around 3k. It kinda sputters and falls apart. Sounds like clicking or something when it happens. I am at a bit of a loss, compression is a solid 150psi across the board with no movement. Verified spark and now am assuming all injector are functioning more or less correct as if I unplug any one it sound terrible at idle. 
       
      A note, I tapped plugs at .7 manual called for .9-1.1 but that seems super over doing it but I will try adjusting them to 1.0
      additionally I’ve noticed the fan in rear doesn’t turn on. 
       
      anyone with any help I will be in your debt.

      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!

      I just bought a 2008 Trooper T2 not knowing much about them. On this one the owner said the horn doesn't work, the winch never did work and during inspection the rear brake lights didn't work. He said he replaced the rear light pods recently and the brake lights worked before. He said the fuse module is corroded so he bypassed it and rigged up his own switches for the fuel pump and radiator fan. I see in the wiring diagram the horn and rear brake lights are on the same circuit. Now I am worried the problem is in the wiring harness.
      I have the wiring diagram from the online manual but I can't make any sense of it. I see lots of posts about wiring issues and I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the issues I see with these machines and am regretting buying it.
      For now my main concern is to get the brake lights working so I can drive it to some nearby trails. I would appreciate any advice on how to go about diagnosing the problem or workarounds. Also if there is a better wiring diagram out there that might help. I would consider hiring someone local to diagnose it so any recommendations are welcome.
      TIA.
