I know we have talked about this in the past, but I like the chance for members to voice thier thoughts about the Prowler line.

So what would you like to see changed on the Prowler line for 2013/2014 moels?

I would like to see a few changes.
1) better shocks
2) If they want to stay in the UTV market lets see a 4 seater. Not just a HDX rework and ground up industry leading 4 seat machine.
3) How about a newer body look?

I would like to see something similar to the Wildcat but with a better motor and trans as well as some drive line parts that can handle 300 horse power.

2009 Prowler XTZ 1000 with a few modifications. Needs paint & powder coating.

I wished Arctic Cat would quit restricting the hp output on their machines. They are running behind the industry leaders on power output.

They need longer travel suspension from the factory, which would also lend itself to being a smoother and more compliant ride feeling.

I agree, they need a 4 seat Prowler, heck, even John Deere is coming out in a couple of months with a second 4 seat model, while AC still has none. The Wildcat 4 seater will be wayyyyy long and not suited for mountain trails as well as a Prowler 4 seat would be. (Think Teryx 4)...

Build the machines with stouter drivetrains.

Arctic Cat Prowler Desert Race XTZ: ITP BajaCross tires on ITP Beadlocks, Beard Super TZ Seats, Crowe 5pt harnesses, King Off-Road Racing Shocks, Custom Racing Chassis with 7 inch longer wheelbase, +5 Suspension set at 16 Front and 17 inches Rear inches travel, UTVINC did the tube bending

An Arctic Cat that can leap tall buildings is a single bound and more powerful than a locomotive!

Darryl, had hoped the factory would take a close look at what you have accomplished and copy some of it. They will need to get on the stick as this is a fast growing market with a lot of innovation coming online. Whatever they do quality control will need to be foremost in their plan. From what I read on the WC they are for the most part pretty well built. Although the drive line does need a total revamp as owners shouldn't have to do all the mods first thing to get power to the ground.
Also I had been curious, being a JD and AC dealer is that causing any issues for you? I know some mfg's do not like competing brands on the floor with theirs.
Hope all had a great Thanksgiving.
