    Wow, that's a great looking machine and not nearly as long as I thought a 4-seater with a dump box would be. The interior is amazing... it's like a car in there!

    How's the General coming along? Have you been able to get some miles on it? You've probably had your hands full.

    Sorry, there is really no update. We’ve been super busy with the new baby and work. We have just a handful of miles on the machine so far ( like 10) from some neighborhood cruising.
    I hope to get a bit deeper into the build starting around the new year. It’s built in my head, I just need to spend the funds and have the time to do it. I will update when anything happens for sure.

    I can only imagine how busy a new baby can be. The good thing about having some extra time is getting to plan out your upgrades. I tend to get excited to get something done and just do it without thinking it through thoroughly. I finally got a ride in a General last weekend. Very impressive and capable machine. Looking forward to seeing yours and seeing you on the trails.

    Well, I was getting tired of my brand new machine just sitting around in the garage, so I figured I would knock a couple of small things off my build list.
    I picked up the Seizmik Pursuit mirrors and the brackets that set the mirrors off the cage a bit. They are a little on the spendy side, but look to be super nice. Plus Seizmik’s warranty can’t be beat.
    I also picked up one of their new Halo-R rear views. It is plastic but also appears super nice. I thought at first it hung down off the cage a little too low, but when I looked in it, it is perfect. Great wide view behind me.

    It’s not horrible price wise and they offer color matched trim rings like they do for the pursuit mirrors. I like it so far, but the first ride will be the real test.

    I heard they were making the Yamaha mirrors for one of their models and even honored their lifetime warranty when that broke.

    New Vendetta Outback bumper:

    Vendetta rock slider/ nerf bars. These will likely go on this coming weekend. They through bolt, so I will have to drop the skid to get to the back side. I will update once they are on.

    All four Fox Podium shocks off. Multiple choice:
    A) This thing is so fast it literally blew them off.
    B) I am sending them off to a warmer climate for the winter so they are refreshed and good for the spring.
    C) Fill in the blank with your best guess. ;)

    I'm considering sending mine to Shock Therapy for the Stage 2 RIS. Is that where yours is going? If so, definitely let us know how the upgrade works out.

    I like it! That bumper looks sharp and follows the General lines perfectly.

    I'm gonna copy @kscfire 's answer for the multiple choice... though I was going to say A.

    Vendetta rockers installed. The hardest part was the skids and that was not hard, just annoying. Polaris has the outer holes in place. I think they use some sort of well nut to attach their rocker/ nerf bars. The vendettas required me to drill through and through bolt. It added a little comexity, but these things are EXTREMELY solid.
    PS... I need to add skids to stage 2 of this build. These OEM skids are amazingly crappy. Just thin plastic junk.

    I will get some better pictures in the light when she’s a roller again in a couple weeks. These are a little dark.

    I often joke about Sky Net taking over with all this technology and artificial intelligence these days. It must have happened, because my ECU is gone! I blame sky net! ;)
    I will report back if it turns up. :D

    My background before this was building fast trail snowmobiles. The 500 was me dabbling in something new. Clearly I am picking up where I left off with the sleds.... plus a wife and a couple daughters, and about 10 more years on the age odometer. :eek:o_O

    It’s adding up quick, but I had planned and budgeted for a moderate size build for a while. Thankfully with age comes a little more fruit of labor. Also, I am 100% sure I will surpass that budget when done, lol.

    Looking good! My Honda had plastic skids and they held up for the 1500 miles i put on them but they were starting to look a little rough. The Wolverine has steel skids welded on and some people still add uhmw skids to those. I guess to protect the steel from permanent damage??
