2019 Prowler Pro XT 3 seater.

Just wanted to say hi. And give some feedback on the 2019 Prowler Pro XT and get some responses on my observations. Not many post on the net about it.

I have owned this SxS since Jan. I use it in AZ on a small desert ranch and around April we headed north to CO and use it on a larger mountain ranch at about 9000 ft elevation. It definitely gets a daily workout. From hauling rock, wood, pulling stumps, and the occasional fun rides through the mountain forest and desert sands. It's like a small plastic truck that can go where normal pickups can't go.

Obviously, the bike is known for it's quiet ride. It's quiet until the cooling fan kicks on. It has a comfortable ride and the suspension handles well. The shocks are adjustable, but I have not needed to adjust them. I have put 3 fullsize backhoe buckets (2ft bucket) of gravel in it, which I am sure exceeds the 1000lb payload capacity. With the dust and workouts, the suspension began to squeak, but the greasable joints put it back in order. It easily tows it's own JP 12ft trailer and tools around after offloading itself from it (~2000lbs).

The plastic half doors don't latch correctly. I have tried adjusting them to no avail. It's a PITA when the door comes open when driving.

The biggest negative is the heat from the muffler gets so hot under normal operation it actually causes the bed to swell and warp bubble up. I am starting to see cracks where the bolts hold the bed to it's lifting frame. I have some heat wrap coming in so hopefully that will fix it. It should come from the factory with a heat shield!

I installed the Warn 4500lb winch on it after purchase and found it a very easy self install, plugged into the existing wiring harness. I replaced 1 of the 2 12volt outlets with a USB charger for device charging. Added front brush guards and rear bumper, half front window and rearview mirror.

Access to the engine for maintenance is exceptionally easy.

The 4x4 engagement causes vibration under the feet.

Foot spacing for the driver is impeded by the wheel well. I am 6'1" and head room is not a problem.

The column shifter is stiff to change gears. The CVT transmission goes into a nuetral when going downhill and not using the gas. This means you can only use the brakes going downhill, not the tranny. When you get to the bottom of the hill and press the gas, the tranny kicks in abruptly. The tranny and shifter need better refinement from the manufacturer.

I would give it a value rating 7.5/10 based on the sale price of $13,600.

Would like to hear feedback from others.
