Wheel Spacers

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has added wheel spacers to their UTV yet? I know with the Trooper you are already as wide as a UTV gets but with even more width comes more stability. Problem for some might be too much width for narrow tracks. These are available at T.Js so someone must of tried them out. Any thoughts?

Cheers Mike.

where we ride, you don't want to be any wider than what they are stock, but I think you can get them straight from Joyner if you want them. I was pricing a unit and HID lights for a customer and noticed them advertised at Joyner.

I used a set of 2" spacers for my Trooper when I ran 25" paddle tires. They were on 12" rims and the spacers were required to clear the brakes etc. Even then I had to do a little trimming of the casting seperation lug on the brake along with moving it in about 1/8" and I needed to reduce the the OD of the brake disk by 1/4". Everything cleared then. Don't need them now that I went to much bigger paddles (16.50 x 15 rears and 13.50 fronts). This is an experiment so I'll keep every one informed. My objective is to not churn them like typically done but to hook up like a track with minimum slip. We'll See. Might sell my spacers later but not ready yet.

      Hello.  I have 2006 kawasaki mule 3010 trans 4x4 that has the drivers side wheel turning inwards while the passenger side is straight.  What would cause this to happen and what would you suggest to repair.  Thanks.  Adjusted the tie rods, but wont fix this.

      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!

      Hello there, I have 4 T2 troopers, 2 of them start and run like Champs, 2 of them have the issue. They will crank and crank but not start. Takes about 20 to 30 minutes to get them going, then they will run all day long and fire up at will every time. It's just the cold start they have a problem with. Since I have 2 that run good, I have swapped every part you can think of from the fuel system to ignition system with no success. I'm pretty stumped and am looking for any advice

      Hi, I'm getting ready to supercharge my trooper and I'm looking for advice on the setup. So far I have... a AMR500 supercharger, small intercooler, Dolbeck EJK fuel controller and wideband. Looking for any advice on what else I'm going to need and what to expect..Thank you
