Checking in

I found the forum with a google search and have been pouring through the threads over the weekend. I am new to the UTV market, and after test driving and talking with dealers I am in the process of purchasing a base model Teryx.

My riding is trail / bottoms / and fields in So. IL, so I am looking for any input possible.
I am planning on a base model and changing/adding:
1. Shocks (DFR Fox vs Evans vs ???)
2. Exhaust (DFR vs Muzzy)
3. Intake (DFR vs AFE)
4. 2 seat cage (I have a welder but no access to a pipe bender)
5. Clutch kit, mud (? manufacturer)
6. EFI programmer
7. Bead lock wheels and tires
8. Winch
9. Half windshield

Any comments and/or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Wes

1. I love my elkas, but the Fox 2.0 are supposed to be very nice also.
2. MUZZY, Hands Down If u dont plan on internal engine mods, I would just go with standard muzzy and not the PRO Muzzy.
3. Dasa is supposed to have a nice EFI intake.
4. Lots of choices
5. DALTON
6. MSD
7. ITP Type 7's are fairly light and cheap. OMF and Hiper are very nice, and PRICEY! Tires, im currently testing some pit bull's and so far I like them. I also like the GBC Dirt Commanders.
8. Dont own one
9. Stock

Like XCHAMP said buy muzzy exhaust, msd ignition,the dalton clutch kit, od plate for more top end unless you go with vforce john clutch, he will cut your stock plate. I have the vforce john clutch mod I am going to do a big bore kit and I will probally then add a dalton clutch kit then so I can play with the adjustment

Thanks for the replies and suggestions.
I have not yet decided on engine mods. I want to run it a while before I decide on that. The kits do look interesting!

Chris, PM sent. Thanks.

Looks nice. I would love to have a long arm kit, but with our trails it's a NO-GO!
