Feature Vehicle: RJ Anderson’s RZR XP Turbo
As the face of Polaris RZR one would expect that RJ Anderson would and should have the best Polaris RZR’s money can buy. And for the most part RJ has exactly that. From his XP1K video machines to his WORCS race RZRs, RJ has no shortage of awesome Polaris inventory. But what does the off-road superstar build when he wants a personal play RZR? Well, you may be surprised at just how simple he keeps it.
Each year RJ sets out to build himself a simple yet functional and fun play RZR, one that he can take to the dunes or desert with friends and family. RJ understands that in a play car reliability is king and so is fun factor and so he tries to keep the car to as close to the stock power to weight ratio as possible. As is the case with all of RJs race machines and XP1K video RZRs, RJ calls upon Mark Holz at Holz Racing Products to set him up with strong, functional and lightweight products to make his RZR able to withstand all he throws at it while still looking good!
For 2016 RJ started with a brand new RZR XP Turbo and installed Holz cage, opening doors, suspension, sway bars, and a host of other Holz built trinkets. The Holz Racing Products cage and suspension is made entirely of chromoly and is always tig welded. The aluminum is fit to perfection with little to no rattling even through the harshest of bumps.
When it came to shocks we all knew RJ would hit up his dad Randy Anderson at Walker Evans Racing. Randy and WER set up RJ with the brand new 2.5″ Velocity Series shocks which are phenomenal. RJ ran these new coil overs in the XP1K3 video and they were some of the best shocks he has ever ran on he told us.
In addition to shocks RJ would also select the new 15″ Walker Evans Racing beadlock wheels and would wrap them with the all-new 30″ BFGoodrich KR2 UTV tires! We love this combo and once again it was a set up we ran in XP1K3 where we further proved their durability.
For interior RJ had PRP Seats line him up with a nice set of suspension seats matching his color scheme. He has a Holz quick disconnect with SPARCO steering wheel, a Polaris Edition Lowrance HDS5 GPS and Rugged Radios communications. These electronics are all set in one of our favorite features of the RZR, his custom Troy Lee Designs painted GlazzKraft dash. This thing set the entire interior off. Its simple but totally custom and RJ is the only one in the world lucky enough to have Troy Lee Designs bless his RZR with some custom paint!
RJ loves to play at night and so lighting is a must. Lucky for him he is sponsored by Rigid Industries and they dialed him in with a 40″ top LED bar and their all new Rigid Capture bar for the front bumper which houses a GoPro inside the light bar. RJ was one of the first to run this new Capture bar and he loves it.
When it came to performance RJ called on his sponsor Muzzys Performance. He went with a simple dual exhaust system and chose to leave the engine as is. 144hp is enough for the champ!
The whole RZR was topped off with a ProLineWraps graphics wrap design by Robert Utendorfer of Utendorfer Designs. The Red, Black and white scheme looks clean and mean!
Sometimes less is more when it comes to building a custom machine. You don’t need all the bells and whistles to build a UTV that looks good and works good. You just need the right parts in the right places and thats exactly what RJ Anderson has on his new 2016 Polaris RZR XP Turbo!
