Does anyone have any good LED headlight options? I found a few that would work but they're around $90 a piece.

I donít plan on needing large amounts of storage. I just want a place to keep tools, extra plugs, bolts, flex tape, etc for emergencies. Iíve been looking at the sealed boxes they have at HF. Just having a place to staff that would work. Iíll kick around some ideas.

Storage is at a premium in the 6x6's.  I've seen lots of different styles of racks on the front, back and on top of a roll cage.  There is a little room under the dash on both sides of the fuel tank on a Max II that some guys have made into storage areas in various ways.  Just be careful of weight limits and center of gravity if you float it on water.

Having a little waterproof case that slid into the stock battery box was the original idea but thatís a lot of work for a little bit of storage. Might be better just to have something that mounts on the fuel tank rails under the dash.

I have seen all kinds of modification to these.  The battery to the back for sure but the jack shafts may be in the way for a flip up seat with storage under it unless you only use the stock battery box as your storage.

Alright thank you. Have you seen anyone relocate the battery to the back by the engine and put a flip-up seat with a storage box on a Max II? I like that idea as a winter project.

Apply it to the tub.  I've seen it done both ways, with or without the bolts installed.

For sure! Quick question. My Max came without a seal on the seem so water in pretty quickly from the wheel splash. I bought the seal but I want to make sure thereís no particular way to do it. Do I put it on the bottom shell with the bolts already clipped in place?

I picked it up on the way to visit my parents in TX and this is one of their neighbors places. I live in OK. I don't have a place to ride but I will be going on a 4-wheeling trip in Arkansas in July. I have 2 months to make this thing a beast!

Looks like you are having fun and have a nice riding area.  Are the woods available for you to ride in also?

It's not pretty yet but I think that's why I like it. I don't feel guilty for modding or upgrading it. >:D

The spring is in the clutch.  It will hold the clutch in "low gear" longer.  Depending on what you are using the Max II for, you may not need to change it.  If you are just going to use it mostly as a play toy leave it as it is.  If you are going to do a lot of heavy or hard work with it you may want to change it.

Also, post some pictures of it when you get a chance.   nopics
