KentT,

What is the clearance between your tires and the chassis. Do the chains rub on the chassis?

Just about 2 inches. The chains do not rub.

Better buy some paint for that grapple. Like a lot of paint. You're gonna need it.


























That LED light bar is gonna burn it right off!

What can I say? It fits the opening under the ROPS, matches the alternator output (no battery discharge while using it), and didn't take up needed/usable space. It likey won't be used much, but when I need light, there's plenty of it...

Where did you get it? How much (not sure I want the answer to that one!)?

Thanks, and oh: nice grapple!

Thanks! I found it on eBay, at what I thought was a good price:


CREE 28'' 180W LED Light Bar Spot Flood Beam UTE SUV ATV Boat Driving Work Lamp
Item price $39.97
Quantity 1
Item number 262138582744
Shipping service UPS Ground

Looks like that low price must've been a mistake on the seller's part, or they're really price-gouging now, because the same item is listed at $92-plus...

BTW, 180w may seem like a load on the electrical system, but consider that 4 of the factory sealed beams (I had two more mounted under the ROPS on my PT-425) draw 220 watts (4 x 55ea) and put out only a small fraction of the light this thing does.

I can smell the paint burning from here.


And I can't even smell.......




[that was a joke in case you missed it]

Looking up the paint burner on Amazon as we speak, thanks.
