Please Provide Feedback

A company whose name will remain confidential at this time has asked us to provide feedback to them on what Teryx owners would be interested in seeing on the market. This is an opportunity for you to speak up if there is something you want, who knows, it may very well go to production.

With that said, if you had the ability of molding plastic, what would you make for your Teryx?

A lightweight, plastic bed with a built in cooler rack.

Stock bed is 105 lbs. It would be awesome to lose some weight and shorten the Teryx up a bit.

I am right there with you. I have been doing some brainstorming and speaking with some of the companies on what could be done. Problem is, the one area that you would likely want to get to (the channel behind the dash) a two piece hood would still not work. Bottom line, the mounting for the cage is in the way. Now you could do a single piece and covered that channel and then hinge the second part from there. You would then atleast be able to lift the hood to get the that area in front of the firewall in the case you mount a second batter, etc.

How about a one piece front clip that hinged in the front and tipped forward, like the one piece fronts on drag cars and Jeeps?? Although that would interfere with any bumper that was above the existing bumper line.

Spoke to the company about this, they are going to look into what they would be able to do.

How do you then secure the rear part of the hood? You still have that problem with the channel behind the dash, am I right or am I not getting what you are saying?

What is killing us is that channel and of course the cage. Like in my case, I have a cross member that goes from one a-pillar to the other across my dash and a tad over the hood.

Jeep latches (like the CJ uses on the front) or the bungie snap down type or even regular ol hood pins like the race cars use. Don't know about your overhang off of your cage.
I am still with the 2 piece hood like a car or truck hood with some type of hold down in the front. As many wizards in metal work on these pages, I'm surprized someone hasn't cut a front clip up and installed the hinges themselves.

I want a complete Teryx bed replacement that is much lighter, a bit smaller and has an option for a built in cooler tie down.
