Lets see everyone rides and what you've done

Heres my 2012 Commander 1000XT. Just put these wheels and tires on yesterday. Finishing up new skids and oil change this weekend. Led lightbars from and rear next week as the custom mounts are being machined now. Heading to Hatfield and McCoy the 16th till the 19th. Staying at Buffalo Trail Cabins. Can't wait! They also have a brewery in the campground if anyones interested.

Re: Lets see everyone rides and what you've done

That's a really nice lookin side by side, man. I'm in the process of rebuilding my quad. All new bearings, fresh powder on the metal, switching the 05 rear end to an 06+, braided brake lines and a few needed upgrades. Almost done but I still need to order some things. Here's what it looks like so far.

Looking good. I candy powder coated my 250r frame when I put the 350 power valve motor in it. Looks a lot like your project does. I ordered a fire extinguisher and other odds and ends this week also. Can't wait for this trip to get here! Guess no one else has a buggy or quad they ride

Re: Lets see everyone rides and what you've done

There's a few but they must not get on the ATV forum very often.
I still have to get a new steering stabilizer, shifter, rear brake lever, rear brake clevis, hand guards, Hiper modified beadlock rings so I can install mud covers and a clutch cable. But I have a sneaky feeling that I'm forgetting something though. Haha
Have fun and stay safe down in WV.

Nice looking Can Am, and nice work on the quad as well.
I have a commander 800 xt, in silver. I have added a roof, windshield, rear window net and rock sliders.
I will try to get some pics of it.
Also have a couple rhinos, really need to get pics of all 3 together, will try to find the time in the next few says.
Meanwhile, enjoy your tip to H/M, that's a sweet ride to enjoy down there.

Your never to old to learn something stupid

My Kawasaki Prairie is mostly bone stock and I just never felt the need to throw money at it. However; the list of upgrades I've done to my two wheel machines is quite long. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

Absolutely. It's all about what you're into. So what two wheelers do you have and what did you put on them?

Re: Lets see everyone rides and what you've done

Had the Commander out yesterday so I took a quick pic. Also snapped one of the Rhinos in the garage.
The blue Rhino is basically stock, just added a roof and some cup holders.
Camo one has wheel and tire kit and the roof added.

The Commander has the roof added and a rear window net to help with dust
I also added mirror's and 1/2 windshields to all of them.

My 11 50" with some add ons. H/M is a great place we have had a group of us going down for at least 5 years. Never did the Buffalo trail. Be safe.



Your commander looks good. How wide are you now with those tires?

Mine is 63 inches wide now. Stock is 58.6 so I gained about 4 inches. I actually took the 2 inch wheel spacers off with the new tires. Doesn't rub as much now. Has to trim the lower rockers in the rear also. I'm gonna put a racertech 2 inch lift on soon to.
