  • Top 5 upgrades to a wheeler

    Here my top 5. What others thoughts?

    1. Detroit Gearless Locker (For older 4 wheelers)
    2. Tires. I like ITP Mudlites but that just my preference.
    3.Winch. When I first put it on I really didn't think Id use it much but I find more ways to use it for get myself out of a mess and get work done.
    4. Heated Hand grips. I really thought about putting this up at number one just because how nice warm fingers are when it cold wet and muddy out. But they don't help you get anywhere.
    5. Meat/Utlitly trailer. One that is waterproof.
    I'm going to ctrl-alt-delete you so hard your mama's computer is going to reboot.

              Winch
              Tires
              Skid Plates
              Lights
              We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

                how about adding what ride you have and what make/model of each Upgrade you did, to give some of us an idea of what is out there... i have never thought of upgrading my 00 Yamaha Grizzly until recently and like for a truck, there are a butt load of parts... im just wondering which works.
                thanks all.

                  08 Polaris Ranger.
                  2" lift
                  27" Mud Bugs
                  Custom Roof. Had BSI bend the metal for me and I use conduit 1/2 clamps to hold it on.
                  Custom Lights - 6" Rubber housings w/ 150w sealed beam bulbs. LLess than $75 and brighter than most offroad lights
                  DJFab's inner fender kit and dual batteries.
                  Warn 4k winch
                  Custom 3/16's steel belly pan Took off the factory plastic, clamped it to a piece of 24x54 and traced the front and added less holes to it.
                  EMP A-Arm guards all around (wish I got these sooner)
                  Hi-Lift mounted to the back of the cage. I've put my winch to a hault before while plowing swamp roots. A must have

                  Also have Pioneer goodies but not sure how I wanna do the install.

                  We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

                        I can tell you your right on the money...A great survival box is a must.

                        Get the tires! I have pulled alot more atv's with factory tires out of the muck in the past than with aftermarket tires. (The new polaris ATV's do have nice factory tires though.)

                            rope-a-long

                            A rope-a-long (come a long that uses long rope instead short cable) with 100' very strong rope. Buy both at AIH in anchorage.

                            But throwing your stock tires away and getting mud lites comes first.
