    3BBDB0D7-EC65-46E0-AACB-9AF775C88E01.jpeg I just bought this bad boy. I pushed the limits a little bit last weekend. Super fun. Definitely recommend. I need to pick up a winch.

    I use my utv hard like a tractor and dump truck several days a week. It skids all my firewood out of the forest to my log splitter, hauls gravel, runs a 7' plow, etc. It's also a blast on the trails and great for hauling during hunting season. We couldn't live the way we do without it.

    I highly recommend Viper winches, I have a 3500 on the front that has been used hard and is around 8 years old. I've had a couple cheap winches on the rear hitch that weren't much, but the front one has never needed repair.

    Be sure and grab a snatch block too, they're cheap, small, and vital in a pinch. I've used mine to flip my Teryx back onto it's wheels, elevate both a front or rear tire to fix a flat, and drag logs sideways off a trail.

    A small FAK, bag of fuses, small basic handtools, a 2" ratchet strap (if you get a flat put the strap around the tire and pump a little air to help reseat the bead), hand or electric air pump, zip ties, and an e-tool all take up very little space but make a utv much more self sufficient.

    I also have a Gerber/Fiskars axe and a machete mounted to my rollcage which have turned out to be very useful for trail clearing and also take up almost no room.

    Hope you get a lot of great miles on yours, they're a blast!

    Been having some fun, primarily my kids. Just got a winch, lights and some mirrors to install.
