2017 Teryx 4 4" Stretch and 2" lift
Hi Guys. New to the Forum. Been reading and lurking for a while but wanted to share my project. Its a 2017 Teryx 4 I picked up at an insurance auction. 72 hours and 719 miles. Former owner had went off trail and hit a stump. Left lower Control arm ripped from the mounting tabs on the lower frame rail. Lower frame rail had a slight twist. I couldn't pass it up.
I've always loved the Teryx 4 but found it a bit "stubby looking". Since I have frame work to do I may as well add a few inches to the wheel base. I'm doing a 4" frame stretch in the front and using 1.5" offset Control arms front and back. That will give me 7" of additional wheelbase. Also adding 2" of lift and going up from 26" tires to 30" Terra Masters on 14x7 all the way around.
Since I am rebuilding everything from the firewall forward and making new shock upper mounts (moving those 4" forward as well, I'm going to add 2" of lift in the new upper mounts. Fenders, hood, and radiator stay where they are. Front diff and control arm mounts move 4" forward. Turner cycles in Texas is stretching the prop shaft. Still have to figure out tie rods (since wheels are moving 4 + 1.5 = 5.5" forward) the old tie rods won't be long enough. The Super ATV +6 kit will be too long. So I may need to get some machined to fit.
Below are a few pics of the progress. Still need to add stiffeners and clean everything up before I work on the Control arm brackets. Last pics are of the control arms and shocks mocked up. Had to make sure all would fit under the headlight buckets. So far so good. More pics to come. Can't wait to spend Fathers day working on the new toy.
