Gutwrencher, if I remember rightly you were tossing up between the Trooper, the RZR-S or a Ruesch on Riding Az & as you had already been to T.Js showroom, you thought the Trooper was for you. Congratulations on your new toy and as your find out once you start driving it, you will be even more impressed with it, especially with hill climbing.

Cheers Mike.

thanks guys

Actually brostar I did have the opportunity to wheel it this weekend and was very impressed with the suspension and climbing ability of the vehicle. I progressively attempted more difficult and aggressive hill climbs and each time it performed very well. So far I am extremely pleased with my purchase and look forward to the many adventures ahead!

Good to hear it mate. I went through the same stage your describing now with hill climbing, it's amazing how quick any fear goes out the back door. I biggest scare I've had so far was coming down a steep hill in the wet. The back end decided to overtake the front and the only thing I could do was floor it. It handled it no worries but it was hair raising to say the least.

Cheers Mike.

      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 am interested in any old trooper axle parts you may have lying around. Please let me know if your want to sell them. 
      Backstory:
      Hey everyone. Last trip out to moab I climbed a wall on poison spyder Mesa while 2 rzr xp1000's and three can am x3 xrc's watched me and didn't dare try. After doing it once I pulled around to show them it wasn't a fluke. One on the can am x3 xrc drivers just looked at me and said "that's steep". On the second try I spread the bell on the left rear axle. I made the climb but now the inner cage slips inside making a loud popping noise as twisting the boot. I mainly just need the inner bell but I am interested in anything you have.

      Anyone have an outer cv joint ball cage? Mine is cracked up. Other than that it's a good axel.
      Please let me know

      I have a Joyner 1100cc Sand Viper in need of repair.  Does anyone know a repair shop or mechanic that services these in southern California?

      Hello-
       
      New to the forum so luckily there is some help out there lol. Recently bought a 2008 Joyner 1600cc sand viper and loving it. Took it out and had a little accident with a tree stump lol. The stump hit directly on my passenger side tie rod end and broke the heim joint that connects the tie rod end to the wheel. Does anyone know the size of the adjustable heim joint so I can order one? I am having a hard time sourcing one quickly. I am also guessing since it is an outter tie rod end, that it is LH pitched rather than RH? thanks for any help anyone can provide. This is again for the outter tie rod end heim joint that snapped. Thanks
