Let's see your "Budget Mods"

Let's see your home built or cheap-arse stuff.
I know it would be great to have an unlimited budget but a lot of us don't and it would be nice to see what others are making themselves or getting on the cheap.

Cheap things like the "Poor mans parking brake" and the "clutch spacer removal" are great ideas that a lot of members benefited from yet cost nothing or very little.

Whatcha got?

Re: Let's see your "Budget Mods"

this is my full windshield and roof i built, all together cost just over $350 plus my labor. thats a steal considering its 1/8" aluminum and safety glass, very sturdy.

Re: Let's see your "Budget Mods"

Hey kevin
The 1st is a rear frame support brace with RZR sandblasted in it.
The 2nd is an alum winch cover plate with RZR sandblasted in it.
The 3rd is home made front c/v and A arm guards.
The 4th is alum plugs turned on the lathe, that fill the holes on the rear arms.
Thats what they are. Cost zip except for the time.
Lots of fun making them and other stuf too.

I have not made a skid plate yet, although I need one. That will be a future project. I'm just doing small stuff right now. I also made some light brackets that go on the lower cage ends. What mod did you like?
