Just A heads up!

Today I was fixing one pf my horns and was checking stuff out and I couldnt believe my eyes. My crossmember under the front storage bos was broken on both sides HOLY CRAP! Ive heard of this happening but I never thought it would happen to my Prowler. So I would say you guys shouls check the front shock cross memberit brakes were the arms to support the radiatorattack to the cross member I cant believe Arctic Cat cut out the cross member out to install the radiator brackets very stipid! So you cansee why it brakes at that point!

That's some good info JOE,last year I mention about checking all your coolant hoses and rubber lines,as I had a few rubbing the frame.I am sure other brands are the same,but a lot of the welds on the prowler are just tack welds,from diff pins to frame gussets.

2015 A/C Sport,With a few add ons..........

Joe are you suggesting that this is A/C wide or specific to your model ?? [admit I have not looked into this on my XTZ unit]

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

I had cracks on the brackets that hold the rear diff in. I guess that's why it fell out. also they say there have been reports of cracks in the joints up front. But this is the 1000. they say to much torque causing the cracks.
