Living in rural mid Michigan we grew up on Dirt Bikes and ATVs hitting the trails on the State Land that surrounds our home. Now with the arrival of Grand Children my Bride and I have decided to thin the herd, sold 4 Quads and purchased a very lightly used and well equipped Wolverine X4 to safely and comfortably hit the two tracks with the cab filled with Grandkids. So far I am certainly not missing the Quads. My X4 has the enclosed cab with full glass, DOT Tires as well as the original off road tires mounted on aluminum wheels for backup, wiper and washer, Wet Sounds Bluetooth sound system, heater. The previous owner never had the UTV off road. I have been slowly tweeking the unit to make it more comfortable and safe. I’ve been installing some baffle material in the front of the cab behind the dash that has cut down on both noise and drafts dramatically. Installed some LED Rock Lights and 2”spots all controlled with a custom fiberglass switch box for four backlit rocker switches, RAM Mount for an Android Tablet for the trail maps and music, got a winch on order, need to install that when it comes, and at that time I will also install the remote control mounted in the glovebox, backup Lights, an interior light kit, and will install additional foil backed self adhesive sound deadening foam on the back of the dash and tunnel.
So far I am really glad I thinned the herd and invested in this lil workhorse, and also thankful I have found this forum. Great information and I really appreciate the ideas and guidance I have collected so far.

I’m looking to eventually upgrading to a nice enclosed trailer to transport my rig around. It sure would be cool to experience some different kinds of terrain. Being in Mid Michigan our forest trails are mostly flat and often muddy, it would be cool to experience some inclines and rocks. If I get that trailer I may see if you have any rides planned and if you have room for a rookie rock rider.
