    Well just got back from WV yesterday after a couple weeks riding some new trails all the way up to and including Burning Rock which has some pay trails of their own system which were quite a bit of fun, also including a Zip Line as well. JBS had a ride and Tim, Any and I joined in last Saturday along with a few other such as Ray and Foly. Anyways I got to test out the new JBS Guards on my T2 with great results as I hit something hard that barely dented them as with the thin OEM guards would have bust my floorboard I'm sure. Also I got to test with great results the new arched A Arms I put on with GP Bushings that cleared rocks that I usually were bumping. These A Arms also gave me 1.5 inchs lift and 1.5 forward offset on Frt and same rearward as well back for better tire clearance. I'm finally getting my Duece broken in now with 1400 plus miles on it so far the only thing I've found bad was a seal leaking @ front output shaft on my diff going to the frt shaft and a outter boot on rear cv has a small hole.
    So now it's sitting in JBS's garage getting some TLC and a few R&D parts on the clutch that he's been wanting to do for the 16 & 17 Teryx since they are different than the 14 & 15s which are also different than the 12 & 13s, seems Kawa is always improving their stuff every 2 yrs. Hope to have some info on how much more tourqe this thing will have by first of the month.

    Dang I gotta get out and ride, I haven't been since James' spring ride in April. I got less than 500 miles on the wolvy and I've had it a year.

    Well I haven't been riding as much either. My rzr xp 1000 though does have 2,200 miles on it with only the voltage regulator being fixed. Everything else is original parts, even the belt. Everything is still tight, and not needing to be replaced.

    I'm still spending that moolaa, today a guy agreed to buy my 16 T2 Fox shocks so I went ahead and called Ted at Bandit and talked to him about the wants and needs for my Duece. He told me about making just a few set of 2" longer bandits for 6" SATV arched Arms which wouldn't work on mine but advised me to order the heavier spring package and how it would make my ride softer vs the liter spring due to my weight/tools, Etc.
    Great talk and he remembered talking to me in May about cost vs difference in performance of the 16 Optimized shocks compared to Bandit and at the time not being enough difference to offset cost but after doing more testing he thinks it will help my back more so than before. On another note he told me that all orders are done online now with no orders on phone anymore, so I placed my order and saw where they were shipped within the hour of my order being placed.
    Now when I went back to my emails I received a $50 refund from them where they gave me a black Friday discount after the fact having never mentioning it. If their service stays like that I will put their stuff on all my future rides. Thank you Bandit Shock Company and Ted.

    I have a Superwinch Terra 45 and the rope I bought is 1/4 inch. Rated to 7500 pounds. I wanted to buy from Blitzkrueg but they don't sell anything bigger than 3/16"
