expanded under seat storage

Recommended Posts

I thought I would post what I did to the storage under the drivers seat. As you know, the little box doesn't hold much. This mod increases the space by probably 3 to 4 times. Basicly all I did was to remove the existing box and add an aluminum panel to close the open side torwards the vehicle center covering the driveshaft area. There are already panels in place on the front and rear of the enclosed area, and the outside side uses the inside of the lower rocker panel body peice as its side wall. Also, the floor is already there being the underside protective covering. I had put fairly dense foam between the 2 curved pipes behind the rocker panel, caulked all seams, added a peice of carpet and put foam seal strips to seal against the underside of the seat.

I've included pics. There is a pic for each inside corner and an overall view from standing behind the opened drivers seat. It looks a little rough and dirty in the pictures. That is because when I brought it in for new driveshafts, they had to remove the floor panel and the panel I added. This broke loose all my caulking and made my paint job look nasty. Before they did that, It sealed quite well without dirt getting in. You just have to caulk it good and get all the gaps.

    • Stupid Question Alert!! Removing Hisun Sector 250 Seat?

      How do you remove the seat bottom?  If it's like most bench seats, you just pull up on it to detach the fasteners, but I don't want to break anything if that's not correct.
      I've pulled up on mine, but it's either holding tighter than I'm willing to pull without knowledge of what I'm dealing with, or that's not how it's attached.

      Owners Manual doesn't mention how to remove the seat.  It only says "remove seat" in a few places.

    • Doesn't want to start

      My 2013 500 will only start if I floor the gas pedal and then once it starts I have to pump the gas until it warms up a little it sounds horrible until it warms up.(around 20 seconds)and then it will stay running. The exhaust smells like raw gas for a little while. The throttle body has been changed. Someone suggested the mass air flow sensor could be the problem ( is that the MAP). It has been to 2 different shops with it not being fixed. I haven't been able to ride it since last fall.

      Does anyone have any suggestions?

    • Smaller SXS for limited transportation/storage space

      Hi all.  I enjoy meandering down going down narrow trails in forested and desert areas. Jumps, mudding or speed turning are just not my thing so I don't believe I need a very powerful machine - but I am new to all this so what do I know?.  Because of space limitations of my cargo trailer and pickup, I'm considering considering 3 machines: 1) Hisun Sector 250 or the Hisun Strike 250, the Trailmaster Challenger 300x and the BMS Sand Spider T350.  Because the trails I will go down have ruts, rocks and can be steep, I will need some ground clearance.  The Sector has 8" clearance front and back whereas the Strike has only 5.8" clearance in the back.  The Trailmaster clearance is 6.3" front and back.  The Sand Sniper is 11" as I recall I am wondering what your thoughts are as to whether 5.8, 6.3 or even 8 inches is enough for the uses I intend.  Also, do you have any thoughts on how well these machines would do on a moderately steep hill? I'm only 5'7" but weigh close to 200lbs so I am wondering if the 250, 300 or 350 cc motors can propel while I'm riding. The Hisun has favorable reviews by Dirt Wheels Magazine. I couldn't find independent reviews of any on the others so it's hard to judge the reliability or quality of the others. Thanks for your thoughts
