    I previously owned a 2013 Kawasaki Teryx 4. A few months back I sold it and ordered a new Polaris RZR. After a few discussions with my man Joey we decided the best idea was to build a no BS Prerunner/Recon vehicle.

    The machine is a 2017 RZR4 Turbo. 0 miles and straight to Desertworks to kick the build off.

    The goal was to create a machine that was clean but not a beach queen. I make one dune trip a year. It makes way more sense to build a cool UTV that I can strap paddles on when I need to.

    Here is a quick build overview. A bunch of rad companies stepped up and sent me some rad parts.

    Cool. Look forward to see where you end up in the expedition/performance ratio.

    Looks good. I like the rear bumper. Good to see something different.
