MTX Custom 2016 Polaris RZR XP Turbo Project - Part 3

One week and counting until Camp RZR West in the Glamis Dunes and our Custom 2016 Polaris RZR XP Turbo with custom UTV audio system is coming together.

MTX Polaris Custom Build Part 3 - 1

We spent a lot of the past week painting body panels, customizing bumpers, and welding up our Cage Wrx roll cage.  When if first arrived to us, it was a box of pre-bent and pre-coped raw metal tubing. After putting this puzzle together, a couple tack welds, and little bit of muscle, we were ready to finish weld the cage and get it painted.

While all that was going on, we were also able to start working on the wiring and electronic upgrades. We can’t show you anything yet, but let’s just say this RZR XP Turbo will have more LED and strobe lighting than the NASA space station.

We’ve got a lot of other painted parts ready to put back together and, oh yeah… The most important upgrade of them all… The audio system!

The wiring and installation of the audio system has begun!

We’re also installing an undisclosed quantity of WET8CWB 8” Compression Driver speakers to the cage. Let’s just say that we are confident this audio system will have plenty of output to complement the 144 horsepower turbo charged engine.

We’ve got some wiring to finish up, some wheels and tires to mount, and a roof and new exhaust to install yet, but we’re really looking forward to showing this baby off in Glamis. That’s when all the early mornings and late nights will be worth it. Stay tuned!

With CampRZR West in Glamis, CA just a couple weeks away, the build of our 2016 Polaris RZR XP Turbo is all hands on deck. Just a couple days after the first write up of this blog, our receiving dock was slammed with shipment after shipment of Kanati Mud Hog tires, PRP seats, and crates full of parts arriving all day long.

If you saw this RZR in our first article, you probably noticed the orange trim and components. Well… If you look for an orange 2016 RZR XP Turbo in Glamis, you won’t find ours.  We’re talking a total color change including these custom RZR seats from PRP.

We’re even swapping out the stock orange rear suspension components for these high clearance upgrades from Polaris.

Body panels are being painted with Custom Shop Hot Rod Flatz Ice Blue over Silver Metallic to make the color change complete.

So I bet you’re saying to yourself… “Self… All these custom cosmetic upgrades are cool, but where’s the audio system that MTX Audio is known for?”

Don’t worry… we’ve definitely got that end covered. But for now, all we can say is we had to make a call to our friends at XS Power and get a couple batteries because we are going to need the extra power.

Stay tuned! More info about the build up of this incredible machine coming soon…

It's like Christmas in October here… When Polaris announced it’s new 2016 RZR XP Turbo EPS, like everybody else in the world, we had to have one.  But with specs and features like 144 horsepower, improved suspension, and upgraded liquid cooling system to name a few, even Polaris dealers had to get on a waiting list to get one. But on Monday, October 12th, Santa's sleigh rolled into our parking lot in the form of an 18 wheeler and we were happier than a kid with a Twinkie.

But just what could we possibly do to this 2016 Polaris RZR XP Turbo to make it any cooler than it already is? Who cares! Let's take this thing out and see what it can do!

After shredding up the lawn and attacking every bump or hill we could catch air on, we finally pulled it into the install cave to start brainstorming on cosmetic and, of course, electronic upgrades. It only took a couple hours to tear it apart… And we mean TEAR IT APART!

We're going to customize this already amazing machine and have it ready for Camp RZR Glamis in only 3 weeks! Custom roll cage, custom seats, and a custom sound system are just a few of the things you can expect to see. Follow this blog for updates throughout the build and if you’re going to be in Glamis for Camp RZR at the end of October, be sure to look us up to see the final product.
