Hi,

I've had my '08 700 a couple of seasons now and have really made some great improvements on it since I bought it. Mostly by reading posts on forums.
I was told by a forum member this is the most active forum of the lot and I can see already there are many more posts here than the others.
One of the best things I did was replace the infamous Turfsaver with an XT spool and alloy aftermarket axles, thanks to a thread by Joe5091.
I'm looking forward to posting questions and offering any opinions I may have.

2008 700XTX, Turf Saver Free, 4 seater cage, WE shocks

Welcome! I'm still using my stock turf saver 2700 miles and working fine. My plan is to replace it with a locked unit. Great to have a new member, everybody here is great, always helping each other. Do you by chance still have your old turf saver rear? I'm trying to find one that I can teardown and weld. I want to document what needs to be done when welding one, and post it on the forum. I'd be will to pay for it. Thanks RD

Actually I do still have my old turf saver but it's a heavy little devil, not sure how much shipping would cost. But let me know if you are interested in it. My wife would be thrilled.
