Cheap, But Effective Mods

Performance, appearance, function, cool factor.....anything!

Like the new cup holder you built out of PVC, or pulling out the exhaust tip.

Anything that doesn't cost a small fortune, but made you smile when it was done!

I built a rear rollcage for mine out of salvage steel. It is not too bad heavy and it bent really well in your run of the mill hydraulic bender. The lighter gauge pipe won't cooperate with the bench type bender. Coated it with sprayable bed liner from the auto parts store which dried to a textured finish that matches the stock finish. I have about 40.00 in it unless you count the wakeboard tower speakers that I mounted up there.

there are some cool ideas out there, but seems like very few do it themselves, most buy it already done..... (yeah, that was a cheap shot)
there is the pvc cvt snorkle (about 25 bucks)
there is the gas pedal spring mod
painted brake calipers

2008 Teryx

Something to Tinker with

PM me if you are looking for a Service Manual.

The boat cup holders in the front drive shaft cover.

Cutting the hood so it can be removed.

Tinting the windshield for a trick look.

Cutting the cage down and painting with automotive paint to have a sleeker looking cage.
