[0:00] Are you guys looking for more storage space on your RZR PRO XP? SuperATV’s got the fix with our Cargo Rack for the PRO XP and today we’re going to show you how to install it.
The first thing you want to do is get the mounts out of your hardware kit. You’ll have a left side mount and a left side hinge mount, as well as a right side for the other mounts.
We’ll start with our left side mount. Remove all the hardware from the mount itself. Once the hardware is removed, come here to right before the cage makes a bend. Get this down as far as you can to the bend in that roll cage.
[0:54] Take the mount and grab the previously removed hardware. Slide it through the bracket and start it in the side mount. I like to start one on the top and on the bottom.
We’re just going to hand tighten all of our hardware now. Obviously we’ll still have to rotate it and adjust it around, so I like to just snug it up by hand. That way it stays in place.
[1:18] Now we’re going to grab the hinge mount and remove the hardware from that as well. Lay it up there on the roll cage.
We measured 17 inches from the bottom of this bracket and we’re going to measure essentially from this side of this bracket to right here on this bracket. Make sure that it’s 17 inches.
Now we’re going to put this one in place. Line it up over here. We made a mark at the 17-inch mark, so we’ll start our screws.
[2:21] We’ve got it to where it’ll just move a little bit. We’re going to come over to the opposite side and do the exact same thing.
Next we’ll grab our cross bar. It’ll slide right down in between the hinge mount. Then grab your M10 Allen, as well as a spacer. There will be two—one for each bolt. We’re going to line up this opposite side. Do the same exact thing.
Install your spacer, as well as the bolt. Once one bolt is started on either side, I like to slide a nut on them. Make sure we get both our spacers in on both sides, as well as all four of our Allen-headed bolts.
[4:27] Now we want to go through and snug the hardware down just a little bit. Make sure it’s not going to move around on us. If it starts to move around, we’re going to have some issues installing it.
We’re going to snug our hardware on the bottom, as well as the top. We want to make sure they’re still lined up.
Now we’re going to take the bed cargo system here. As you can see, there are these tabs on the back of it. We’re going to line these up with the brackets on the cross bar. We’ll line up our latches with the latches here.
[5:11] Now we’re going to look at it and see if it could latch where it’s at. We’re good and latched up. Now what we need to do is grab this hardware from the kit: M10 bolts, sleeve bushings, and Nyloc nuts. Now line the hole up in the cross brace to your rack, where they line up together.
Once it’s lined up, take your bushing and slide it through the hole. We’ll have to reach on the inside and slide it in. Take the sleeve and slide that in as well. Once the sleeve is in, we can slide the bolt through and reach out to put the nut on the inside.
Now we’ll go to the opposite side and do the exact same thing.
[6:36] Now the cargo rack is installed. Sometimes if you don’t get these tightened up enough, it will rotate your brackets where the latches are. That’s what ours did. We just need to pick this up for a moment and line them back into place. This one actually needs to go forward.
Right there—that’s perfect for this side.
[7:05] We went ahead and fully tightened that side, so it’s good to go. Then we need to do about the same thing on this side over here. Then we’ll go up front to the screws we installed, the Allen-headed ones. We need to fully tighten them as well, just to make sure everything will stay aligned.
We’re gonna tighten the hardware on this side as well.
Now we’ll go through and fully tighten all the cargo rack hardware up to this point. With these, make sure you get them tight but don’t overtighten them. That will make it really hard on the struts when you go to lift the rack up.
[8:13] Now you want to make sure the faces of your hinges are parallel, so we’ll just look at ours. They look good on both sides, nice and lined up.
Next we’re going to grab the gas struts. We’ll lift this up. As you can see, there’s a hole right there. We’ll grab our nut and attach it, then it will attach up here as well.
Repeat the same steps here on the opposite side. Line this side up as well.
[9:00] Now you’re going to test it once the struts are on. Make sure it’s making good contact everywhere and that it’s latching well. Ours is latching great—it opens nice and easy. It’s all good to go.
Now there are just a couple of things left to do. We have these panels here that we send in the kit, as well as these covers. The cover needs to sit like this.
We’ll remove these two screws and these. As long as you line it right back up where it was then you won’t have any problems. Set it right there, like that. Line your holes up. Obviously you want to do one side at a time. Just pick up on it, then confirm that it still latches well.
[10:34] Alright, we’re latching good on this side. We’ll come over to the opposite side and repeat the exact same thing. Let’s latch it, then we’ll go through and double check our hardware one last time.
Make sure everything latches good and opens well. It looks like we’re good to go!
So now we have these panels. They’ll sit right along the edges. We’ll take a bolt and drop it through, and then start our nuts on the bottom. Once they’re all started we can go through and fully tighten them.
[12:06] I ran mine by hand, so it doesn’t really take much to tighten them. Once you’ve fully tightened your hardware, checked it all out, and made sure your cargo system is functioning as it should, that’s it!
