Welcome to the forum, Dustin! Ya, mine stayed stock for 2 days. These guys LOVE to spend your $$$ for ya. I'm doing turn signals, Stop and Tail lights right now. Not legal on the streets in Iowa, unless you are plowing in the winter. But a buddy who is a cop, told me that if I at least put turn signals on it, I probably won't stopped if I was to run it to town for gas or something quick. They are a blast!

I will definitely be fabricating a snorkel for it first and then a winch. We ride a lot of deep water and swamp down here.

Snorkels are an easy fabrication. PVC pipe, and fittings. Get em up out of the water, coat all connectors with dialectic grease and you are good to go! Silicone the connections where the clutch air in, and out connect to keep water/mud out of the clutch. It may be a trail and error project, but worth it in the long run!

Welcome to the site. Sorry I am a little late. I live in Southwest Florida and do the same type of riding. I built a snorkel kit for mine which works great and put a 4500 lb Superwinch on the front. Great machines. Be sure to keep an eye on the radiator when running through muddy water. They like to clog up and overheat.

Hi, Dustin.

Welcome.

Warning: besides them liking to modify their stuff, they find a lot of novel and interesting items for you to spend your money on. You won't be able to resist....
