    Default RTV1100 gets rims, tires and heated seats

    Well the new Essex surefoot tire kit came in today. Looks great and I go up muddy greasy hills in 2wd that I couldn't make it in 4wd. The ride is fine, but you can feel the ribs when your driving. Will definetly need to get the lift kit as the tires rub on tight turns. All in all, very glad I got the tires..it's a different machine.
    On another note, I put heated seats in today. I bought the heaters on Jegs for $89. They work great and I gotta be the only person in the country with heated seats in an RTV. Below are pictures of the heated seats install and the the new tires and rims.

    Hmm.. I should do this on my gator. Tommy there's an idea for you go get some heated seats things and put them in the bottom and back of the seat of your gator. They would help your back and keep you a bit warmer.

    the heaters I bought are supposed to be waterproof, but don't know if I would use them on an open cab.

    they are nice, they warm up very quickly, faster than the heater can be turned on. The install was time consuming but fairly easy, worth the 89 bucks.
