What would you like changed

Now that most of us have had our Prowlers for a few years. If Arctic Cat would change one item on your Prowler before you purchased it, what would it be.
I would like a better shock option

Ain't that the truth !

It would be nice for AC Customer Care to actually give a crap about current owners, then worry all the time about future owners.
AC if you are watching,
by now people who have the "toys" (selds/atv/utv) will always upgrade and WILL buy more in the future. Question is, will they buy your product again. That what you are worried about.
I can honestly say, if or when this prowler dies, Im buying a commander - 3 yr warranty is very very appealing

Sorry for my rant, I just "hate" how big manufactures play god with our pocket books.
Like my new issue that is not new at all.. .its so old that they have what ??? 3 "fix's" for it now and counting?
Not one notice or recall made.



  1. Factory high seats instead of those tractor buckets they call seats
  2. Stronger tie-rods
  3. better charging system
  4. for the 16000$ price tag maybe some cool toys - Deluxe gauge(s) better seat belts, etc

More charging

A better brace for the front end where winch mounts.
Just caught mine about to pull apart from the frame.

First off... Better differential and axles -- not cool to spend the first summer of ownership trying to engineer a way to keep the diffs and seals from blowing apart (I did, thanks to the help I got here).

I know AC isn't the only company to have problems with certain parts.. all the manufacturers try to cut the cost of manufacturing and sometimes it bites them in the behind.

I won't rant on forever but my biggest issue personally was getting ZERO customer support from either the dealer or the company when i had these issues. It brought me to the point of actually being insulted. This forum and the quality of people and help I've recieved have really made it for me.. this place was my customer support! I would never even think about calling AC again for help or advice I come here, no question. I love my prowler and have a lot of fun on it but for the sole reason of horrible customer relations I will be shopping the other brands when the time comes to trade in. Not saying I will switch brands for sure but I'll be shopping around.. sorry for the long story guys,


2010 700XTX Orange -- Custom snorkel, Diff. vent mod (dry cavity), Bighorn 2.0's on custom painted "blacked out" rims, HMF Swamp Series XL with turn down, /// airdam stage 5, Some EPI goodies, Dynatek FS, Chrome headlight covers, Flip out windshield. "Cooler Hauler" ... Sold for another toy but still hangin around
