This is really geared towards the Glamis crowd and more specifically the Glamis bed delete folks.

Wrench Complete bed delete...

I went with the total and complete removal and I can say that without that weight it the back my machine is much faster and has better throttle response, The downside of course is that the rear tires sling whatever riding through all over you and your passenger (I don't run a roof either). I was thinking about shaping some very light plastic or aluminum from behind the seats on each side around the wheel then tapering back around to the hitch area. The chunks of mud don't really bother me until the get between me and my PRP seat and it's like sitting on gravel for the rest of the race and I have to say that it's no picnic. As far as rear storage for trail riding, I fabricated a shallow aluminum tray that goes directly behind my seats that is completely removable and gives me the ability to strap in my cooler and toolkit and some other misc items.

I bought mine with the bed delete so I have never had it to compare but I don't think the dust and what not is that bad. But if you go through water or mud then that's another story! But I primaraly drive it at the dunes and don't have a problem. I think it makes it a little louder since the exhaust is right there but I like the sound so doesn't bother me.

thx for the replies.

still on the fence, it has never seen mud (what is mud?) and not much dirt or hard pack. Its a duner, and summer ice chest hauler to the beach glorified golf cart.

Noise isnt a biggie much with the new ghay helmet law

heat was never a concern

but dust/sand coming into the cab would be a bummer if it was an over whelming amount.

The few w/o beds, and running paddles, not to bad?

thx again

I thought Funco used to sell a plastic tub to replace the metal bed. It fits the same location. Not good for much weight in back but could resolve a few other issues.
Not sure if they sell Teryx stuff anymore looking at their web page though.

All stock Teryx with very fast tires from down east.

Its not the price of the Teryx that gets you, its the $ in mods. These things can be money pits.

Never deal with Ray at Fundy/TRP. He took my money and never delivered my motor and Aftermarket parts.

I think sand junkies aluminum bed with the thicker floor would fit your needs best. I've run their without my bed but with the longtravel the tires stick way out anyway. I didn't think the dust/sand was bad at all but your opinion might vary. As far as noise I couldn't tell you that either. I have Dasa pipes and it sounds like a trophy truck.
