Joyner Trooper Future Plans

Recommended Posts

Hi guys; I just thought it would be kind of a fun topic to discuss what our plans for this year are for our Troopers. I have been taking welding classes at my local community college and want to get some real use out of the skills I learn.

Mine "Trooper" goals for this year are:

1. To replace the front shocks with better ones.

2. To reinforce the roll cage in order to protect me and my wife if we should turn over.

3. To add a grab bar on the passenger side

4. To build a front bumper/skid plate

5. To aquire a good crossover GPS so I don't get lost

Got my Trooper in June 08 and made a few changes so far

1 5 volt mini usb power for GPS and power outlet for spot light and such

2 Glove box with lid

3 Trunk box on the rear deck, to hold canes, jack, blankets, coats, food, etc

4 Changed all tires over to 27x8.5x14 General Grabbers AT2 on 6" rims

5 Changed out lower ball joints because one fell out and the rubber seals were crap

6 Hinged the hood at the front

7 Put another storage box under the hood.

8 Modified the fuel system so it does NOT run out of fuel going down hill **I HOPE** + other stuff

9 Quick Oil drain valve

10 Easy remove bolts on skid plates - still changing things there - remounted brake line junctions

11 Moved the radiator fan backward 3/4 inch so air can be draw from more area of the rad

Currently working on

1 Centering the steering wheel and working on the steering box, changing boots and making it turn the same amount left and right

2 Changing out upper ball joints and adding Zerk fittings - One of them has broken the weld and backed out about 1/8 inch - (Done)

3 Put a block in front of the dash to keep dust & splash off the front wheels from entering through all the holes there

Future projects

1 Add cruise control - tied to engine rpm

2 Add muffler

3 Change seat belts - Probably just 2 point and modify the shoulder straps

Just got my trooper this month but plans for this year i hope are-

1. Install hard cab when it comes in.

2. Change windshield to safety glass so i can run a wiper system.

3. Remove Storage from under driver seat to make room for the heater.

4. Install my 30 inch mudlites on my ss rims. (Already Done) Then stick on machine.

5. Install the HID lighting. (Already installed 2 J W Speaker lights waiting on my other 2)

6. Convert the flat panel on passenger side to a true glove box with lid and latch.

7. Replace front lights with HID replacement bulb and ballast.

8. Add muffler to quiet things down a bit.

Thats all ive got for now ill try to post pictures as soon as i can or as i get projects done.

Nice job. I made mine adjustable too. I find different riders all adjust it differently so adjustable is useful.

    • Hey Guys!

      Hey everyone!  My name is Scott, and my wife, kids and I are in escrow on a home that is on 10 acres.  After much back and forth trying to decide between getting a tractor or a side x side for working around the property, I finally narrowed it down to a side x side.  My father has a 2018 Odes Dominator x4 Zeus, so I called him up to get his thoughts on it, as he uses it on his 12 acres out in Missouri quite a bit.  While talking, he mentioned that he is thinking about selling his Odes, and buying a jeep to tow behind his motorhome, so we got to talking, and it looks like I'm buying it from him.  Its a 2018 with 13 hours on it, break in just done, and all fluids just got changed.  I look forward to learning more about the UTV world, and look forward to any input anyone can give me on the Odes brand of UTV.   Thanks Scott

      Make your own, it's easy, I did, just in case mine breaks.

      At the suggestion of one of our members, here's some info on the gas gauge sending unit.
      3 ohms is full, 13 ohms is 3/4, 23 ohms is 1/2, 63 ohm is 1/2, 110 ohms is empty.
      Electrical readings are: F=0.75v-98ma, 3/4=1.91v-82ma, 1/2=2.7v-71ma, 1/4=3.3v-62ma, 0=4.1v-52ma, E=5.0v-39ma
      0 is top of red zone, E is bottom of red zone.
