    Holy crap! With 45k, I'd have put it into the property Riverdiva had for sale, put a renter in there, had positive cash flow, and a had great investment.

    Then you need real wheels and tires....$$$
    Then doors or you just funnel sand in when duning $$$

    Then you need the lights $-$$$
    The little lady likes to be warm and I like cushion - so you get better heated seats & harnesses $$$
    Then if you want it to look the part a body kit $$$ (preferably matched to your boat)
    Then the motor stuff like a basic - stage 1 exhaust and controller just as a foundation $$$

    Then you step back and ask yourself how it happened again.

    Thanks!

    sure....just make sure you bring a sister.....

    I would have stayed on bikes and quads except for the "one kidney" thing - I lost a kidney to Renal cell carcinoma 3 years ago and If I get hit just right Im on dialysis the rest of my life.

    With age get a cage.

    This is scaling it way back from a 100K sand car, but still fun.

    Super nice RZRs you two have.

    Andy when I get it I will get ahold of you for insurance.

    Thanks in advance.
    I would recommend a Cage from SDR. They are a little more money but hold up well when needed. I put mine to the test and it saved my ass.

    Uncle Dave that RZR is the SHIT!

    You can literally sink as much money into a SxS as you are willing to spend...... We have had customers spend $1500-$40,000 after the purchase of the machine to dial them in to their liking. Figure $5-10k if you want to do the basic mods. Tires/Wheels, Seats, Harnesses, Cage, Doors, Lights. All depends on how your going to use it and how you want it to look.

    Feel free to pm or call me for any ideas or questions.

    we had a rhino and a buddy bought a RZR 4 1000 when they came out. I drove it and HAD to have one!! then I really thought about it, for what those things cost I don't think its worth it! why not just buy a sand car?

    this is also when I decided to ditch the rhino and "fix up" the jeep

    Probably have 16k in mine.. I bought it used then did the doors and cage.

    Best advice I can give. Buy a used one with as much stuff done to it as possible. As you can see people dump a ton of money in them and sell them for a lot less than they have in them...

    This may have been stated before but, Why wouldn't you just go to a rail ? There alot out there for 45K that kick ass, have a stronger frame and tons more horsepower. I have a teryx I bought from funco for $7500.

    1. Service -Better know how and be able to do most of your own service work - Because there is little to no support network for rails and almost everything is custom. Every other the motorcycle shop sells SXS's.

    2. FINANCING banks support the UTV industry - buying a rail? Better have cash. Buying a UTV you need a down and a credit score and can get payments up to 10 years - like a boat.

    3. Size - tip over a full size car in the dunes- better have a crew standing by.

    4. Usability - I put my mom in a razor/maverick and she can follow us in the dunes and offroad. A rail takes some skill.

    Rails are more fun faster and I like them better, but these things are fun and have a place. A Terx, or Rhino even built is no comparison to a RZR.
