    Other 05-16 F250/350 icon vehicle dynamic shocks

    I have a used set of icon vehicle dynamics shocks that came off my 08 F250 with a 2.5” leveling kit. Shocks are used and all need a rebuild. Fronts are 2.5” piggybacks rears are 2.0 IFP’s. Front piggy backs have the sticker rubbed off from the tire and made contact with the coils. It didn’t hurt...

    What tie downs do you use?

    I'm in the market again for some good tie downs. Not just for the rzr but general use. I usually keep a casual eye out for nice ones everywhere but they still don't last.

    Polaris What's a good half or full windshield?

    I have a jagged X with roof and utv inc BMF bumper and would like something to keep the wind off me in the winter. The bumper clamps on the A pillar so I would probably have to modify it.

    Polaris Best bang for the buck?

    I want to upgrade the suspension on my jagged x. I was planning to do the needle valve conversion, but wondering how much it is to switch the front to 2.5 walkers or is it even worth it? Also what's the best bang for the buck upgrade I could do for the smoothest ride for desert and rock...

    Why 3/8's isn't enough!

    Went to do an oil change and admiring all the scars on my FUTV skids and saw this 1/4" deep beauty! Seems to be holding up well for all the rocks we crawl. So if you're thinking 3/8's is enough to do a lot of crawling might want to think again.

    RZR trailer mods

    Kawasaki Wife wants 4 seats I wanted 2, so T4?

    So I have been dead set on a maverick for a long time, but the wife wants a 4 seater. I have been reading a lot about the t4's and am very intrigued. I like the shorter wheelbase of the t4 compared to an xp4 or mav4. How well of a performer is this thing all around? The only utv I has spent time...
