First Trip w/New Mods!!

So I've made three different posts in this section since I started...seems to be a trend

I spent about 4-6 hours every night last week working on my machine. To my knowledge there isn't a really good custom shop for SxS's anywhere near me and I've learned from experience that if a shop hasn't done something before, a lot of times you're better off doing it yourself.

So with the help of 3 of my buddies (one ASE certified mechanic, one former high-end car audio installer & one die-hard gearhead/techie) we set out to have the baddest SxS at the Labor Day Mudfest @ Devils Garden Mud Club. And IMO, I think we damn well did it.

To date, here are the completed mods to my machine:

Drivetrain & Suspension
2" SS Lift Kit
1" 4/115 to 4/156 wheel adapters/spacers
14" MSA M12 Diesel Wheels
28" Maxxis Zilla tires
Heavy Duty Springs

Performance
Full Snorkel Kit
LTE Dual Exhaust

Electronics & Lighting
Loaded Overhead Stereo Console w/Fusion iPod Deck
VDP 6-speaker Sound Bar
DDM Tuning 55W HIDs in Highs/Lows
Rigid Industries 20" E-Series LED Bar
Viper Elite 4500 Winch
Additional Odyssey 925 battery
Waterproof Fuse Block
Green LED Whip
Green LED Interior Lighting

Exterior Body
Diamond Plate Roofed Line-X'd Black
Half-Windshield
Dual Gun Rack
Quad-Boss Side Storage Bins
Front Brushguard
(2) Roll-Cage Mounted Camo Beer Coolers
Rear view mirror converted to side mirror

Interior
Center Armrest w/cupholders
Center bar-mounted storage bag

Had a great weekend with my machine, it performed exactly as I expected it to. Definitely need to get my clutch off to ///airdam and get that EPI kit in there. Also need to get Power Commander w/AutoTune to go with the exhaust. Thinking about possibly going back to the stock front springs too, the heavy duty springs in the front make the ride really, really rough and it caused my shock supports to bend. Will definitely be replacing ALL of my axles before I take the bike out again as I already broke my rear driver side axle - I knew this was coming with the lift & tires.

All in all - very happy with my bike and its progress. Even happier with the fact that short of the Suspension mods, it's all been done in my garage!!

Pics below from the weekend. Love to hear feedback on my bike as it sits now and any suggestions!!

Machine looks good.

You can run the new updated oem axles if you make sure they have the white cup.

I have not broken one of the white cup axles yet and I have been known to break a axle or 2.

I now have 2 white cup axles and they are holding up great.

I mounted the VDP bar like that for a variety of reasons. Yes, we do a lot of partying and its great for that. I plan on putting in a rear seat so it's for that also. It's as loud as you would want it to be.

Didn't make it to Swamp Cabbage. Might head to RYC or Devils Garden next weekend.
