Prowler upgrades

Well, I have owned my Prowler for 3 years now and it is time to do some upgrades.


On the list: Dual battery with Isolator, Accessory Fuse Block, Under glow and interior lights "Thanks to Bryan", Stereo with Marine Speakers Pods, Led Whip Antenna, Rewiring switches and adding additional ones, CVT temperature gauge, CVT inline fan, Water temperature gauge, and finally fan override 3 way switch.


Oh and some maintenance: Check and possible change out differential fluids and air filter.


Items completed about 2 weeks ago: EPI Sport Clutch kit, removal of one way bearing, New Severe Duty EPI belt.


Items already installed prior: Soft top, winch, led cube lights, and Charlie's homemade snorkel system.


Once I have it complete and cleaned up I'll add some photos. Hopefully if all goes well I can get the above accomplished this week sometime.

That sounds good Charlie!! I gotta do the EPI sports clutch!! My Swamp Lites are 28" and I'm not wanting to burn out a belt. I do 90% of what I use her for in low range, but you know how it can go!!

Thank Paxx. The clutch kit was definitely worth the $$. How do you like the swamp lites?

They are great!! I have been very pleasantly surprised at how well they do in snow as well as in muddier terrain. In the short time i've owned this machine they have given me no reasons to not like them and a tonne of things that they are doing so well!! Very aggressive tread that still ride nice and seem very durable. I'm sure they will tear up the turf around the yard this summer and I'll have to watch that, but I really like them.

Ok thanks. No snow to worry about in Florida but I do ride in a lot of mud and sugar sand. I was thinking about going with the 28's regardless of the tire I choose. Do you know which Mud lites you have?

Modifying a Prowler makes perfect sense! Better to upgrade than buy another machine. My street tires are like brand new! Hard to hurt them on the street, but on loose sand they are worthless, that is fine as we ride mostly hardpack. My offroad tires are BigHorn's about 4 years old. They are down to about 50%. Once we get to AZ, I'll have to look at a good set of tires for the desert, thinking a strong sidewall will be needed.

2009 700EFI XTX, , AC Winch, 2010 Dust Shield EPI Sport Utility Clutch Kit , Street Legal, Cage chopped 2 ", Aluminum Diamond Plate Trim, Relocated Factory Bladders with covers, 5 Pt. Harness installed, Bed Tiedown System, Scat Pro-Car Seats, Secondary Battery installed, Oil Pressure, Oil/CVT Temperature, Volt Meter & Water Temp Gauges installed with Dash Plate, Bighorns, ITP Black 212 Wheels. Tonneau cover. 750 Big Bore Kit, Web Cam, and Rocker Arms.

[QUOTE=Fairmont79;399585]Modifying a Prowler makes perfect sense!


I almost traded it in last year for a Polaris Ranger High Lifter but could not bring myself to spend 18k. So I decided since it is paid for, time to upgrade rather than trade. I am thinking about a second side by side to have. Bass pro has a left over Wildcat Trail for around 9k. Sounds like a steal and I could sell my sons ATV. The bonus, someone to pull me out when I'm stuck. Probably just dreaming though.
