Prowler 1000 questions

Hoping to pick up the machine this weekend and have a few questions,

I've tried searching but a general search brings up all kinds of posts and not machine specific. Or I'm doing it wrong.

Where are you guys with the XTZ mounting the winch solenoid?

How many XTZ owners are removing the rear swaybar.

Anyone add tail lights to the bed? I'm guessing you can tie into the wires going up the roll cage just like the other prowlers.

I mounted mine under the drivers seat on the rear fire wall.

I don't have one and it seems to articulate and handle the nasty stuff better. Lot's of body roll though without it especially on the street.

UTV Crap sells a kit that gives you tail/turn lights.

Thank you for the info

I liked the sway bar removed on the 650 just wasn't sure if it was needed on the 1000 due to more performance.

The xtz sway bar looks like it would let the rear a-frame drop down as low as it can since its not bolted to the a-frame and just stop it from bottom out.

My suspension is all after market long travel so it may differ from what the stock a-arms would do without the sway bar. I was supposed to have a sway bar included in the build of my XTZ but that never happened. I think Dragonfire racing build a nice one. I just don't know that i need it or the extra weight.
