Final Fix For Those With Turf Saver Diffs

Hey guys, im new to the forum but not to the prowler xtx. ever since i bought my prowler ive had really jerky takeoffs and the dealer always said thats just the way the prowler is, finally on vacation up north on the rim my turf saver rear end bit the bullet. the driveline would spin 17 times before the thing would start jerking around and moving, then once you were moving at say 30mph and let off the throttle it would free wheel and then finally catch and damn near throw you over the hood. so i came home, pulled the rear end apart, pulled the inner housing apart and found that the clutch packs were completely worn, so i did what any welder would do and turned it into a lincoln locker, the whole inner housing is welded up and back together and going strong, to replace it with a factory housing its over 900.00$, to go to the 650 rear end it would be even more because if the different ring and pinion sizes, plus you have to do front and rear. all it cost me was labor since im a welder. if you want this done or have questions on this just p.m. me. thanks guys, sorry for the long post

Yeah its hard to somebody that has even had the rear end out of one of these things, and if they did they don't know what to do with it, we used to do the same fix on our 4x4's in high school, never ran into an issue.

2009 was the first year of the turf saver, though a good idea in theory, a bad idea in design, i only got 4000 miles out of mine before it completely let go. And it was starting to fail around 1500 miles, whatever you guys do, don't run regular weight oil without the friction modifier, its a temporary band-aid but will fail your'e clutches within 150 miles.

How many miles do you have on your fix. You may have some member side work with this repair. And your correct it started in 2009 with the XTX

Talking

So far i have 300+ miles on it, i would have more if my shocks would writ breaking, my prowler is down right now so i can fab up some fox nitrogen shock ,mounts front and rear and do a few things to the clutching. After that look out, I'm drawing up the idea of a small turbo system that will work with the big singlebore set up.

Reading this stuff sure makes me wish I was back in my home state of AZ. Seems like there are a ton of you Cat owners back home that are very resourceful. It would be nice and "handy" to live closer to all you guys and take advantage of everybody's knowledge and skills. Nice to have some friends to go riding with as well.......
