no one currently posting has the alternator on a XTZ

I'd like to do it but haven't even looked into it ... been busy getting married and moving and all that entails for the past couple years +

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 one from UTV inc but it didn't work out, the kit is just sitting on the shelf and haven't had time to redesign it for the rear drive shaft. RD has his setup on the front shaft but he is a single lunger, these 2 bangers take up all the extra room.

2010 A/C XTZ with some "Stuff" SOLD

I mounted mine tight to the front of the engine, but I have a 700. I looked at mounting it in the center above the driveshaft and using the floor console to cover it. I used a mini GM alternator rated at 70 amps, one wire, or three wire hook ups available. I run two batteries and before the alternator, when the fan cycled on the volts would drop to 12, with the alternator and speeds above 10, the voltage stays at 14.2 when the fan starts! I used a piece of 2" angle iron, and two metal straps plus a 3/8" threaded rod connector for the mount. It is not very tall, so it does not flex. A GM turn buckle is used to adjust tension on the belt, and a spare belt is in place around the driveshaft if I break one on the trail. I posted pictures on my page about the project! Great thing about an alternator is that you can mount them backwards if space is an issue!

2009 700EFI XTX, , AC Winch, 2010 Dust Shield EPI Sport Utility Clutch Kit , Street Legal, Cage chopped 2 ", Aluminum Diamond Plate Trim, Relocated Factory Bladders with covers, 5 Pt. Harness installed, Bed Tiedown System, Scat Pro-Car Seats, Secondary Battery installed, Oil Pressure, Oil/CVT Temperature, Volt Meter & Water Temp Gauges installed with Dash Plate, Bighorns, ITP Black 212 Wheels. Tonneau cover. 750 Big Bore Kit, Web Cam, and Rocker Arms.

Either - Dick or RD

Good looking 1000 I wouldn't think your led light bar and a stereo wouldn't drain your battery.do you listen to your tunes when the prowler isn't running......You need to install a volt gauge,so you can see how many volts your battery is charging at.....

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

careful when in wooded trails , that light bar is a prime target for low hanging brush and tree falls / low hanging tree limbs

I'll be mounting mine right under the roof [if I can still see out .. I'm 6'7" so look out a bit higher than many fellers] ..
