This is going to be a long one and I’ll do my best to answer questions if there are any on how I did my mods. 99% of the stuff I have done can be done by anyone and you don’t need a welder or a fabricator. My machine ends up being the prototype and after we figure it out it ends up being nicer on my buddies (we run about 17 of these things amongst us) so you can polish these mods up. We use ours in Nevada so it’s rocks, trails and hunting in isolated areas.

Well I recently got my bevel replaced and basically have a new motor. After 4600ish hard miles I was looking to get a new machine but now I can’t justify it.
I decided all the things I “wanted” to do over the years- I’m going to.

Before I stripped it down I was going to install the Satv heater. Well one panel turned into a project. The dealer stripped out my shifter handle screw so fortunately I figured that out in my garage instead on a trail. When I pulled the console plastic half of my heat shielding was loose and I had a bunch of dry brush packed Under the motor (smoke smell finally diagnosed). So here is my machine before:
Mods, tire carrier, 4 place intercom, glass windshield, golf cart heater, roof rack, soft doors, door extensions, door bags, dome light, radios, 2” lift, 1.5 spacers, rear rack, bunch of lights, 28” tusks. I’m sure I’m missing things.
Here are some pictures in various stages of the build not finished but enough to get an idea.

So I stripped it down and I’m adding a ranger crew bed, bumper, rock lights Trinity exhaust, skid plates, satv heater, snorkel?, clutches flash and the mid travel. Bed mock up/progress : the plan is to frame it with removable ramps and sheet the sides. Should bolt up fairly easy once I weld the bed frame up.
Ranger crew bed is shortened about 8” to the frame. I bought it (with dump frame) off Craigslist for $80, the guy cut the plastic to fit in a toy hauler. I plastic welded the cut line and reinforced it with mesh it’s not moving now and is stout. The aluminum bumper is a junk yard find off a Toyota (free with brackets) and the bumper face piece is off of an old t4 bumper my buddy had that broke. I’m into the bed $85 right now.
I decided I’m going do a 10-12” frame stretch so I can’t mount it until that happens. Im going build 3” bed lift that mounts to the stretched teryx frame

Well got some more on the bed done, I added an old jeep jk receiver . Figured out the tailgate and have the ramps mocked on the side (not cut down yet). Can’t really finish the bed until I pull the trigger on the stretch, when that’s done I will be able to do finishing and final fit. But once the stretch is done I will stack 2 x 1.5” squares for a 3” bed lift. I’ll run a boat side ish steel out and and angle it so the outside ramps will bolt to that. I’m torn between hinging them and having more table space for over landing or making them removable. Anyway here’s the update photos-also if you didn’t want to do all this and found a complete ranger bed cheap they almost direct bolt up (with a hell of an over hang but very do able.) Lastly nothing is level the bed is just floating on the Kawi frame.

The temp dropped so I stopped the bed. The plus side is I got the rock (really just party lights) installed after a year of looking at them.

Looks good my Rock Lights sat for over 6 months & I just did them 2 weeks ago.
