Even on the stock Big Hrons, it'll get around the dunes really well.

I am replacing the doors.  Just waiting for my cage, which hopefully I get in a few more weeks.  
 

I will let you know when the stock doors are off.  
 

Are you in So. Cal? 

Yes sir I am in the High Desert

We can figure something out.  My cage is pretty much built.  So either next week or the following the doors will be coming off.

Looks like my cage is progressing along.  Stopped by to iron out a few details on the spare tire rack and some other small details.  If all goes well I should have my cage installed next Friday.

Thad at Fabwerx does a cool thing where he incorporates a mount that goes to the rear shock upper mount.

Got some pictures sent of the spare tire carrier Thad made today.  I can remove it for the dunes.   Liking how it is turning out.   Talk to him this morning about it and he got to work on it.

He missed a spot. Like all the way around that big gusset.

Didn't your UTV come with a roll cage?

Cant wait to see it all done

It is getting closer.  Installing my S3 Powersports a-arms and TMW gusset kit and bumper this weekend.  Hope to have it on all 4 wheels today.  

Hopefully have the cage on Friday and then still have to wire all the lights, radio and pumper.

Spent the weekend installing the TMW gusset kit, shock tower brace, bumper/winch and S3 a-arms.   The TWW gusset kit is not a one person job.  You need extra hands to get the lower arms on dues to the way the due the lower a-arm rear gusset as one piece.  Thankfully I had a few friends come over and help out.  

The gusset kit is well designed and stout.  Pictures were taken before I tightened all the bolts and torqued to spec.

Had to remove the little stops on the front hubs as the ball joint cup on the S3 arms was hitting.  Per the instructions from S3 you remove the stop.  It was quick work with a cut off wheel.

Had to to a little trimming on the front plastics so it fits around the bumper.  Did that last night and put the wheels on.   Just have to button up a few things and it will be ready for the cage to be installed. 

The next big project will be hooking up the Switch-Pros and all the lights and accessories.

I thought S3 used hiems vs ball joints on their kit?
