My Arctic Cat Prowler XTZ 1000 H2 EFI Build

Well I took a good look at the Arctic Cat This morning.
And unless i do a bunch!!! of Gussetting I am gonna mess this thing up!!!

Check out the welds? Look at the way they spot weld it almost. They should of carried a bead all the way along the pieces. Then again this is a farm tool right?

It does look like the welds do penetrate really well. That is critical from what I am told.

I am looking for some input from you guys,

What kind of gussetting have you done?

Who did you use?

Do you have any pictures?

After the gussetts have been planned I will work on the long travel suspension.

i have more plans coming soon, But I am taking this addiction one day at a time. Here is a rough games plan.

I need Paddles and buffs for my Cat. Jonny i got my Rhino ones from you. Do you have anything for the cat?

I will also be doing intake and exhaust.

A two seat roll cage, with doors.

Suspension Seats and five point harnesses.

Paint and details will be done asap after that.

No hes not slamming farming, what hes saying is it was meant for work at normal speeds and conditions, not racing and jumping..

Not slamming farming at all. I just want everyone to remember these were built as tools to be used on the Ranch or Farms of America.

I and some people I ride with build them for recreational riding only. And then i hear people complain about lack of performance and stuff.

I try to keep myself grounded and remember these UTV's things kick ass at what they were designed for.

Anything I do to it aftermarket wise becomes my responsibility. So no complaining from me.

My grandfather had a corn field / small farm when i was a child in Ohio, funnest place I got to go hang out. Rode around on his driving lawn mower all day long

Ok guys I have a question

Should I design the gussetts with templates i have made from looking at the actual vehicle?

This might be fun, I am checking around but it just seems early for the XTZ suspension.

Ok guys I have a hook up for exhaust, but what do you think the benefits will be for a Intake and fuel controler? I have always thought a exhaust isnt much without an intake? What are your thoughts.
