    Thinking of a RZR build, was building a early blazer but I think I will be to old to drive by the time this dream is done. Thinking of buying a new 4 seat rzr for my wife and two daughters. How much do you have in your rzr to get it the way you want it? Can you post pics of your rzr as well? AZ West the best deal place for a new one? Thank you for the replies!!

    Sorry to side track a little Andy, what is a ball park for insurance on a RZR to be able to drive on the street?

    I'm looking to buy one too. So far with purchase, a cage, harnesses and a few other upgrades I'm easily near the $30k range.

    About $32,000. I still need to finish running the wiring through the cage, make new doors and get it wrapped. Made the cage, bumper, trunk, roof and windshield at our fab shop. IMG_0424.jpg

    It's a big range, depends a lot on value and location. But figure $500 to $800ish, again there is a big difference with value with add on's.
    That's a good looking cage John!! I don't want to spend 32K ouch!

    What is that?

    I'll get ahold of Tom to get a contact for Gary, thank you!!

    A JKUR is a Jeep Rubicon Unlimited. I've got a couple of those too. They eat up money fast also.

    You can get a used 4 seat RZR for under 20k. You don't need all the stuff I put on mine. I ran it bone stock for the first season.

    Bought mine at AZ west. I had talked to other dealers but they would not beat the price, only match it. I bought mine when the xp41k was first released, there was no budging on prices.

    Drove it stock while I waited for some builders to put some units together to see what I liked best and then went to TMW Offroad in Mesa,AZ for the build. I bought things like seats and lights prior to build and dropped everything off with TMW. With all of my parts made and powder coated before I arrived my build time was 2 days. Grabbed a hotel room in Scottsdale and stuck around to watch it come together, made a few changes and added some things along the way. I'm into it for nothing shy of $45k now.

    Wow Cam that is nice, I had seen I think all white? It tuned out amazing, I remember your golf cart days :D

    Do you enjoy it in Havasu? That is where I will be using mine, no dunes or anything for me.

    Uncle Dave that has to be one of the most over the top ones I have seen, that is insane!

    UD, Throttle, like Andy I'm also going to grab a new turbo 4 seater RZR here pretty quick. I've been looking but where's the best place for all the mods and bolt on stuff?

    Super nice RZRs you two have.

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

    Thanks in advance.

    Thx, mine wasn't ever white, but it's been all around great. The golf cart and teryx drove the same. The rzr has been a complete home run!
    UD's car has the body from LaveyCraft. Chris is putting out some nice stuff.

    Thanks-

    Laveycraft can do all that for you and source the parts.

    They have dealers for their body parts they can get components from at a discount.

    The guys at SXS Industries have pretty good deals on parts.

    Motor work is Pro shop, Alba or Sparks.

    It kinda creeps up on you like any project...

    Been riding with them in the dunes and watching them get wrecked for a while - if and when you start jumping you notice they have a tendency to land on one front wheel then get dragged back to camp with a folded front end - so you have to beef up all the running gear a bit axles/ beefier long travel kits $$$

    Then that means a revalve & springs and or new shocks $$$
    Then you need real wheels and tires....$$$
    Then doors or you just funnel sand in when duning $$$
    Then you need a map so your idiot friends can find camp..$
    Then you need the lights $-$$$
    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    HOly shit... Scarry how fast these things add up. For perspective, my 04 f250 Crew Cab 4x4 Diesel was less then that when I bought it brand new in 04.

    Had 3. Each one I picked off Craigslist, used it for a season and sold for more.

    I guess if it was my main hobby I could see going all out.....on a Yam 1000. :D
