Prowler

Finally getting mine put back together! Changed the front axles to the new style, new seals in the front differential, added a catch can for the front differential, replaced all of the top end gaskets with copper, put my Dynatek box back on, cleaned out all of the winter crud! Glad I switched to the locked rear, seemed better plowing! Never did have any problems with the turf saver, so I boxed it up for re-use! Want to go try my street tires in the sand on the trails, see a lot of street type tires in use around here! Seems like UTV activity is really picking up in Michigan. rides forming every week end!

I got a new wheel bearing this week from Boss Bearing, got a noise in the left front I'm sure that's what it is. I'd rather tear it apart and have the parts on hand to replace instead of waiting for them to put it back together.

Have you used Boss Bearings before? I have them in mine, but very few miles on them.

Fairmont, Do you know if there is a way to switch the rearend in my 2014 Prowler to have a turfsaver mode?

It may be possible to switch in a turf saver gear set. You would also need the inner CV joints that fit the turf saver. I ran AC part numbers for the XTX, and the HDX and they use the same 36T gear. The turf saver was only available on the 2008-2010 XTX's. The Turf Saver rear received a lot of negative feed back, main issue were failures around the 1,500 mile mark. I had over 7,500 miles on mine, and it is still working great! I always changed the friction modified gear lube 2-3 times a year, and used mine mostly on the trails. I swapped mine out to try a locked rear this year.

I guess negative feedback it why it was changed then. Mine does real well, just seems to eat the tires when on asphalt. I do not ride it there much so probably not worth the change. But it is good to know.


When I was looking at both Arctic Cat and Polaris, that was Polaris' big push. However, I liked AC's locking differential.


Thanks for the info as always.

I built my locked rear myself after hearing about the failures (?), I had it sitting on my shelf for over two years! I'm thinking that keeping clean gear lube in it, and not abusing it made it last. Like you said, it is an option!
