My Ranger Project

Post  jones on December 21st 2014, 11:09 pm

Thought I would show you my Polaris Ranger I have been working on. The Ranger is a 2011 800 EPS model. Other modifications are Dyno Jet Commander with auto tune, LTE exhaust (it's off getting repaired due to cracks in the stainless) Dirty Dawg clutch, custom snorkels, aftermarket hd electric fan, HD steering rack.
Plan is to upgrade the shocks and springs as well. The factory springs have broken down and the shocks are beat up pretty good. I might go to a larger 35" superior traction tire.

It currently weighs 1,200-1,400 lbs with the big tires.

This is what it looked like before I started.


Getting old suspension off.


New billet front differential.

New 6" longer length Gorilla axles.


Side view of new rear suspension.


Rear suspension complete. The tires are 29.5 Outlaw II on 14" wheels.


My hope is to get the front suspension on and running this Christmas break.

I wonder if any of our cylinder head porters could do any good porting the cylinder? Thinking about raising the compression and changing the camshaft. They do offer a turbo kit for this model but I'm not too fond of the way they add extra fuel. I would want to change the ecu out to and aftermarket unit. Every thing has to me water proof as it's not unusual for me to drive this thing through water that goes above the dash and into the bed.

It's taken me places that I couldn't have walked too! Sometimes on our mud rides they will put me in the lead and follow me only for me to lead them places that they can't get through!! LoL
One day a guy was following me, I dropped off in a hole and the water came up too my bed rails! I looked behind me once I got out of the hole and they was all trying to back up and find another way around! They latter said they was having fun until they saw the water come up to my bed sides!! he said, " hell naw I ain't going in there"!

I have a super lite Feather lite trailer I use to pull the ranger on. It is the best trailer I have ever used. It's so lite that I can pick it up with one hand and push it around my yard. It even uses torsion suspension. This is what I talk about pulling with my truck I'm building. It's almost like it's not behind the truck except for the wind load once I get past 55mph.

Everyone else having problems and I'm just cruising! LoL


I also use it to teach my little cousins how to work on mechanical issues. Your basic mechanical stuff. This is a picture of them wrapping up a transmission swap.

Here ia a picture of the truck that is getting the 521cu engine, C6 transmission and a brand new paint job. I'm thinking I will go with a ruby metallic.

Did as much work as I could until I needed to order some small items. I had to order four 1/2" cone spacers instead of the 3/8" misalignment spacers.


A little better idea of the height it will be.

Anyone know of a good radiator fin cleaner? I know they make something for home ac unit's. The only thing I have found that works getting the mud out of the radiator is a high pressure washer and then I have to be careful not to damage the fins.
