Don't know if y'all are like me but I LOVE lookin at pics of other peoples rides. Mine is pretty much stock but I'll post one to start it. If you think this is a useless post fine just ignore it and don't post a pic. Please just don't be negative because you don't wanna do it! :) image.jpg

Here is a picture of mine, quick photo snap along the trail this past fall. I have added front and rear bumpers, nerf bars, all interior bags, rear storage box, roof, HID headlights, two small spot lights mounted on the front bumper, RZR rims, Mayhem tires, rear panel, mid windshield, custom homemade upper windshield half, RZR side mirrors, fire extinguisher, and rear view mirror. Yet to come will be a light bar, winch, horn, interior light, and stereo of some sort. Man I love winter but is it Spring yet? I am dying to get out riding again!!

This is my favorite picture of the ACE with Lake Michigan in the background. I've done plenty of modifications, all with the main goal to make it street legal, which I finally accomplished. I built the bumpers and nerd bars from scratch along with several little things. I bought this thing because I want to have more fun. In the past few years I had some surgeries and am not able to do some of the other things I like like running, back-country skiing, etc. The ACE helps me compensate for that. It's also helped me rekindle some old relationships with longtime friends.

Looks good Vinny! Id love to be able to make my own bumpers but I have no way to make the bends. I can weld and have access to a welder. Maybe I can afford to buy a set one day.:)

I really like the Mayhems myself. They make muddy areas super effortless, but if you like to slide around in the mud then your out of luck because these just hook up and go. I ride mostly railroad grade and trails that are tight and full of tight turns. This year was a very dry year and I put over 2000 miles on these tires in these conditions and these tires made all the difference over the stockers. I was able to maintain decent speed into corners, when the trail was wide enough to do so, and feel completely in control. You can get the rear end to slide on dry trails but keep control which was what I was looking for. Slow speeds on pavement is a bumpy ride, but that's to be expected because of the tread aggressiveness on these. Over 2000 miles on these tires no flats and they still look brand new!

Same as the stockers were 25-8-12 in the front 25-10-12 in the rear. I stayed with the same size because they are taller than the stockers and I didn't want to add anymore tire weight by going bigger and chance causing premature wear and tear, even though they say you can go with a bigger size. They did steal a little top end but very minor, I am talking like 2 mph. Does not bother me because most of the area I ride you can't go full throttle, it's more about being able to maneuver turns and fun tricky trails.

why are your fronts on backwards? swap them for width?
love the work you have done yourself...more satisfaction than just bolting on someone else's stuff IMHO :)

Ha ha 70cyclone I screwed up!! That's awesome you caught that. I was in such a yank trying to get them on for the street legal process I missed that detail. I can build some bad a** custom furniture but when it come to tires and some of this other stuff I'm an idiot. But I won't make this mistake again!! I bet it will preform differently, cannot wait to swap them around!! Thanks! Lol
