Picking up my 2014 Prowler 700 XTX tomorrow morning. Just thought I'd register after lurking for a little while. (Doing research) Hopefully, I'm going to learn a lot; and have even more fun.


cheers

Hi, Jonny Max

Welcome. Its a great place to hang out and great people to hang out with.

Where are you located?

PS: Hmm. Its after 3 AM. Its cold in here and no coffee brewing. I guess I will put on a jacket and get a soda from the refrigerator... Gary needs to chime in here and explain the rules about early morning/late night chores for new folks.....

Hello there!

Lots of great info here!

If you do not want temptations, you may want to avoid a few people. LOL Fairmont has me eyeing a big bore kit and cams for my 700 HDX. :)

Just curious, but what are some accessories that you guys have found are "must haves"?


That question probably needs a little setup.... like what do I plan on using my Prowler for. Well, chores around the yard, ice fishing, hunting, trail riding, plowing.


I was thinking a roof and possibly a windshield. I have a winch and plow ordered. What else do you guys think?

Roof and windshield for sure! Winch, and Plow you have covered! Creature comforts are a plus, I went with aftermarket seats, and sound, and heat deadening materials. Great thing about these machines is that it does not take much to make them your own! Check out everybody's albums for ideas, or the past project posts.

just a lil piece of advise ... when you get that plow on and start using it ... LOW GEAR is what you want to plow in , if you don't you'll incur some major expenses after a short while the drive train doesn't like high gear plowing

you may of may not need 4x4 lock depending on depth and snow conditions [dry powder or wet heavy]

Roof for sure. Windshield is nice if you do any wide open higher speed driving, especially in the winter.

A buddy bought a set of HID light bulbs for me, because I installed a heater and plow set up in his. WOW, what a difference at night on the trails! HID's-----For sure!
And RD is right on for the aftermarket suspension seats. They make long trail rides, really tolerable. Best thing I did to mine.
