New from UT

I have a few small ATVs and was considering buying a larger one to use with a snow plow. (I have a small Suzuki 4x4 250 with a snow blade on it.) I decided to take a look at a side by side and someone close had a 2008 Prowler with only 1250 miles on it. Took it up the road for a test drive and was completely sold! Without any kind of cab or covers it probably won't be used much before Spring, but that just gives me time to dress it up a bit for warmer weather.

welcome to the house , good luck finding the accessories you want .. the square tube roll cage machines are very hard to find accessories for, especially now that they have gone to round tube machines.

tradition around here is the new guy brings in a load of wood for the fire put and starts the morning coffee ,,, we get up early so please don't dillydally getting that started we like it strong but not boiled down and bitter. So sit a spell swap some stories and pitch in on the BS and spending someone elses money

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

Well the square tube might be easier if I have to fab my own bikini top or something. However, that's a great tip to watch for when shopping.

Lot of Square tube machines on here! Always on the look out for early Prowler stuff! The 650/700 engines are very popular. Good power, fairly easy to work on, and OEM Parts are available everywhere! One thing to check is the Oil Pump Driven gear, some early models were equipped with gears that had a nasty habit of failing! Check your drain plug for debris whenever you change oil, I also screen my oil for any metal pieces! Stole a strainer out of the kitchen, and then pleaded the fifth! LOL
