    Anyone else notice that when going over some bumps in the road there is a rear end rattle? Just guessing but is it / could it be the parking
    break spring or the plastic belt cover? I have put some rubber washers in-between the three mountain bolts on the belt cover but to no avail.
    Just wondering if putting a rubber ( whatever ) in-between the spring or the springs themselves might prevent this. Thoughts??


    I've got noises coming from my rear end but usually after ice cream. Seriously though I took mine into Polaris and they try to blame anything aftermarket but when they ran out of excuse they decided that it was the wheel bearings.

    thanks @rnj12. Sure thing. First off, I understand this isn’t for everyone, but I’m completely loving this voodoo bumper. It goes well with and matches my top and regardless of the “off road” and “road warrior” comments I think it’s a better, meaner looking sling with it. @VooDoo Fab did a great job putting this together. I Designed the colors and ordered from slingmods website. They’re made to order so it was about 8 days before I got it. It was well packaged and protected. The box arrived a little banged up, but the bumber was just fine. Installation was quick and straightforward. I removed the 4 bolts holding the stock lower spoiler and the entire assembly came right off in one piece. There’s one smaller and one larger bolt on each side. I was thinking I might have to get a bit longer bolt and use a washer for the smaller top ones, but they’ve held up fine. Fit and finish are perfect. I set the bumper as high as I could adjust it but even then it either sits about 1/2” lower and/or maybe a tad longer in the front. I find that I have to be a bit more careful coming up my driveway and I especially have to watch how close I get to curbs and such. Moreso than with the stock spoiler. Other than that, I haven’t noticed any other issues with it. I have had it well into the 100’s so it hasn’t affected top speed any. It does feel a bit less stable at high speeds if it’s windy. Not too bad though. Without any sort of crosswinds, I can’t tell the difference in stability between it and the stock spoiler. The stock spoiler is heavier than the voodoo bumper so that might also be a reason for the lighter feeling front end. Again, not really an issue. So in summary, about all I really had to get used to was slow down my approach to steep driveways and really watch as you’re pulling up to curbs.


    Well put, thank you for taking the time for that review and again looks damn good. I was one of the first to say not for me but now I'm thinking just maybe.

    They say you find Angels in the most unexpected places. Well last night was no exception. I got an inbox message for post that I had stating I was going to install the DDMWorks coolant tank. Well this angels name is Trent. He sent me a message with simple foolproof tips for an easy, clean, and flawless install for the great coolant tank. I thank you sir for your help and may God bless you and your family. Here is the final pics.

    Save it, though. Someone's gonna snap one off at the overflow nozzle, and they'll need a replacement in short order. I still have my plastic one (2nd one!) plus the metal replacement nozzle I used to fix my first one. Those things suck, especially if you're running the aftermarket silicone hoses.


    I save all my parts as I've already helped one person with a smile. Silicone hoes (oops wrong hose) will be on order very soon.

    Garage has sh*t everywhere. I have given explicit instructions for nothing to be moved because it makes sense to me in a weird way. Finished stripping most of the 16.5 today, swapped the brakes, shocks, and wheels as well. Tomorrow I plan on pulling the dash and moving the stereo to the 15. I'll have to admit, it is kind of fun in a twisted kind of way.


    I really like the hood (or lack of) on the left.

    Yes sir, I assure you the "temp gage," aka the "thermometer," does indeed go down that low. It just projects at an odd light frequency below 32 degrees, a freq that FL and AL natives cannot see. :00008172:


    Oh I'm so sorry I didn't use the correct term for you. It's ok though I assure you I will try harder next time.

    I'm sure you meant 72 and not 27. The temp guage doesn't even go down that low but I'm sure you was shaking as even 72 can be a bit chilly.
