Traded my 2012 XP 900 for a new XP1000. Didn't like the stock cage and some of the other perfectly good stock parts so I bought and fabricated some stuff. Here are some pictures of the build and I will put up pictures whenever I take it out somewhere interesting.

Took off the unsafe cage. Also the radius rods, trailing arms and Lower a arms. Also the seatbelts, doors, maxxis tires and stock skid plate. The new cage was built by wide open designs, we made the front bumper and spare tire holder. The new cage is .120dom and welded together.

I also put on trail armor rock sliders. A horn and blinker kit. Led light bar. The high clearance a arms, trailing arms, and lower radius rods are the ARSFX stuff from zbros racing. They don't make 2017 stuff yet so some modification was required. Also did a warn 4500lb winch. And all sorts of other stuff that doesn't deserve mentioning. Or that I forgot.

Took it out to moab before the build and took it out by my house to bash some snow drifts and test drive after the build.

I like it. Might have to add one to my wish list. Still have my Polaris sportsman 700 out at camp but I'm unable to ride very far due to lack of back support.

Damn, how much weight did you add to that thing ........... it had to affect performance.

Performance is still awesome. It will still jump, cross big snow drifts, climb rocks and hills. Cage and spare tire add the most weight but if you know about off road racing you'll know that a welded .120 wall cage vs a bolted .95 wall is a huge safety difference. The high clearance parts aren't very heavy but are a lot stronger. Tires are about the same. Winch is heavy but like the spare tire doesn't need explanation. Doors are aluminum and rock sliders aren't heavy. No weight issues here.

I'm seriously jealous. Within a couple years I plan on selling the Polaris 700 atv and getting something similar. A buddy of mine has the 570 razor and it's alright. I like the size. Only a couple inches wider than mine.

I think they make the ace "1 person" with a 900cc engine. It should be close to the width of your 700cc. Put up a picture next time you take your 700 out.

Also got some rock crawling in. One of the tougher trails by my house is now melted. I didn't do a good job capturing it but the front right tire is about a foot in the air.IMG_20170610_164225_hdr.jpg
