    :lol: I was debating about posting that. All I can say for myself is that none of the flower beds on my jobs look like that...

    Dang! That looks sharp! And you say that bumper will allow the front storage lid to fully open without contact?

    Yeah it pulls against the tension chords and doesn't touch the bumper. I will take a video for you and post it!

    Ordered me a mount for a winch.

    Trying to figure out if I want to buy a winch with purely steel wire or try the synthetic cable that claims to be 30% stronger... :dunno:

    My brother already ordered a winch with the synthetic cable and one of my buddies has the same atv with steel. I guess we can compare. Any input on this would be appreciated.

    My brother has used his quite a bit and its starting to fray....it will slice you open like a hot butter knife thru butter! I have seen the synthetic seems to last longer and you dont have to worry about the fairlead binding up. syn uses flat style fairlead where steel uses the rollers.

    Do you know which winch he got? My brother got the Tera 35 and it doesn't fit in the mount...

    I have no idea. We made the mount ourselves with some scrap steel . welded it all up and its good to go. the winch is a Warn. it works really well...but doesnt like bad connections or excessive mud buildup around it...but it keeps on ticking.

    my brother is not very good at electrical wiring but somehow it works hahaha

    Pictures or it didn't happen! :lol:


    I converted my oil in my ATV to Amsoil. I don't know if it had anything to do with it but one of the guys on the trip had a new Polaris with 60 miles on it. He had factory oil. We started out with 160 miles on ours. Our fuel on both of our quads stayed 2 bars above his the entire trip, per the fuel gauge.

    It mostly could be that his wasn't broken in...
