My 08 T4 is a great machine too.
After my first mud hole in the thing, oh about 10 years ago, I added a splash shield under the hood so the back side of the dash would not get muddy.
My stock switches and gauges still work…As well as axles/cv’s. I have a spare axle but never needed it so far in 7k miles of Tennessee rocks and mud.
Had to beef up the rear trailing arms (I broke one off), replace the oil sender, and several rounds of SKF wheel bearings. Overall a great machine though.

In 2014, they Renegade went to the 1100cc engine.  I don't know if the exta 300cc makes much of a difference in performance.  They have a manual transmission and clutch, much like a car.  You'll have to be proactive in managing power to the drive axles; not as easy to do on extremely hilly terrain, but is doable.  Some commented on quality issues in the early Joyner models but I can't confirm that.  I've never had any major issues with my machine.

Hello from Canada….

I recently purchased a2008 Joyner R2, 800, but let me honest, i have not driven it as it is problematic atm. I have replaced injectors, pump, sensors, plugs wires, coils, etc. I have had it running roughly. I purchased it as my son had a joyner 650 sand spider i think, dam thing ran awesomely. His issue was youth, 5spd and drive axles, which leads me here,PARTS PARTS PARTS….where the heck do we get parts, prices, and availability. Currently mine has zero spark, gauges cycle, fan starts, fuel pump goes, just no spark🤬🤯I am trying to find insight, i really want this bush bashing work horse to run and be reliable. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in Advance

      Hello, All!  I've decided to replace the traction batteries in my 2018 Sector E1 with a 48V Lithium set. They may be expensive, but I figure the Discovery Dry Cell are, too. I am not looking for the max driving range, as I have never received near the brochured range to begin with, but a good mix of charge/ get work done/ charge is what I am expecting.
      I have settled on the 48V EAGL kit from bigbattery dot com. Each battery pack provides 30Ah. The kit ships with a charger, as well. The packs would be physically connected in parallel (using a busbar) to one another, maintaining the 48V voltage, but together would be able to provide the amp draw the buggy pulls when going up hill or towing a rake (rated 320 max continuous Amps). This is in comparison to the serial connection the eight 6V lead batteries. Each of the EAGL batteries looks to have its own BMS; am I correct in thinking I will have to use their included charger rather than (simply) changing the onboard charger to lithium mode? The chemistry of the pack is LiFe PO4, for what it's worth.  I haven't torn anything apart yet (to diagram), so  I am not sure how the dash will interpret the AMP draw, but the kit I am looking at includes a dash mounted charge indicator.
      If anyone has completed a similar conversion, do you have any tips? Specifically, how did you remove the original batteries, and how did you secure the new ones? I am guessing that almost any change from the stock batteries would involve at least some modifications. Any tips would be appreciated, especially things I may have failed to consider. Thanks!

      Hy (pronounce he), just bought a Hisun Sector E1.
      I'll be using it to haul logs and stuff in the Sangre de Cristo mountains.

      My "R" light on the dash will not go out when I take the UTV out of reverse and put it into any other gear. Is this just the light switch issue or will this effect engine performance in the other gears?

      Less than 40 miles can barely start. Dealer is working with Hisun on a number of other issues on this UTV. Can not get clear info on the meaning of these E codes this is getting. Anybody have some clear info for me?

      Spent today at a Honda dealership looking at their 520 side by side, then on the way home past our Lowes noticed they had several new UTVs on site, so we U-turned and ducked in there. We were impressed that all that came for $9,999 metal whole length skid plate, nice sized bed, roof, windshield, side mirrors, winch, upgrade looking tires… all of which would have added thousands of dollars to an already expensive Honda 520. Now Honda does have a great reputation from my trusted UTV experienced buddy, so it has that going for it.
