Rhino Hood Mod

Radiator cleaner

Must Have's:

A set of 4 or 5-point harnesses, we all know a seat belt is a seat belt and works better than nothing but if you ride rough you need a set of four or five point harnesses to protect you and the person setting in the passenger seat. I went with a set of Crow 4-point harnesses but I am considering stepping up to a set of 5-point harnesses. Read Full Review

 A winch is a must have for sure and the KFI 4000lbs fit the bill perfectly. I have used this winch numerous times and it has always had enough power to get me out of a bad situation. Read Full Review

A set of Skid Plates, riding in rocks (trails or creek beds) the rhino's thin sheet metal undercarriage takes a lot of abuse but a good set of skid plates can offer a lot of protection keeping the undercarriage in great shape for years to come. For skids I went to Ricochet Offroad Armor and picked up a full set of underbelly skids. Read Full Review

In rough terrain I got to say lifting the front a little to level it with the rear is a must. I went to Rubber Down Customs and got one of their "Leveling Kits" for the rhino then modified it to keep the shocks from binding at full compression of the shocks. Read Full Review

Wheels and Tires:

We all know the easiest way to give the bike an all new look as well as change its attitude and ability to perform on different terrains whether it snow, mud, rock, or sand is by changing the wheels and tires.

DWTs new MOAPA's mounted on their new Sector beadlocks These wheels not only offer great looks but are constructed of super strong lightweight heat treated 6061 .190 aluminum and are designed to handle basically everything we can throw at them.

DWT's Diablo Wheels These wheels like most actually speak for them selves! They have a unique design that has a none removable center cap it is actually machined into the wheels which means no more last center caps!

MotoSport Alloys Platoon wheel and MotoGrip Tire kit This combo looks awesome, the wheels are unique in design as well as the tires. These tires are DOT approved and offer great traction on hard packed trails.

GBC's Grim Reapers These tires are nothing short of amazing, I have put many hard miles on them and they have held up great as well as perform great in a wide variety of terrain.


 If you do any riding at night I highly recommend you invest in a good set of lights. I am sure like me you have found the factory lights on the rhino are way underpowered if you have ever seen a good set of HID's or LED's on one.

SidexSide Customs Plug and Play HID's

 Until I installed these lights from SidexSide customs I didn't realize just how weak the stock lights on the rhino was. These 35 watt HID's (6000k) are so much brighter than stock, now my 55 watt fog lights are nothing but bumper ornaments Read More.

Baja Designs 6" Prerunner HID's

A couple months ago I installed a set of stock replacement HID's from SidexSide Customs which was such an improvement over stock it yielded my bumper mounted halogen lights useless. This got me to wondering just how a good set of larger HID's would do mounted to my bumper. After doing some research I went to Baja Designs, one of the leading manufacturers and marketers of lights for the offroad industry and found they offer 6" PreRunner HID's with a lifetime warranty.

We spend a lot of time in these bikes and at the end of the day we like to know in the morning we are going to be able to go to work without being sore from the day before and the only way to do that is by modifying the bike to you comfort needs.

Shocks:One of the easiest way to raise the comfort leave of any bike is a good set of shocks and the rhino is no differant. From the factory I quickly noticed the front shocks on my rhino liked to bottom out regularly and the rears liked to kick.

Progressive 425 Shocks.

  A set of Progressive Suspensions 425 Heavy Duty shocks fill the bill without emptying the pocket. These shocks offer excellent ride and handling in a wide variety of terrain right out of the box but can be custom tailored to each individuals needs  Read more.


This is something commonly over looked due to price but a good set of seats can make a big difference in how you feel at the end of the day and on the ride home. If you have had your rhino very long I know you have noticed as I did that the stock seats have very little cushioning. This lack of cushioning is extremely noticeable when you get on a rough trail or if you are just riding fast on a smooth trail and find a small rut or mud hole. If you are reading this I assume you feel the same way I do about the stock seats and are in the market for a set of good comfortable seats.

UTV Crap Seat Bases.

  Have you ever noticed how the stock seats rock from side to side? I have and have always thought the aftermarket seat bases were an excellent idea but until I installed my new Super TSX seats I keep putting them on the "to do later list". After installing my new Beard seats I noticed my seat bases were incredibly weak and seemed to wobble around even more than stock..Read more.

Making it yours:

All these bikes come from the factory setup to do most anything we would want them to but there is minor ways of improving them to meet our needs. One of those needs if to be different so we set out looking for items/accessories that will accomplish this. One of the easiest ways to do this is wheels and tires but it is by far from being the only way.
