Welcome back to another installment of the Ride with Us series! If you’re new here, this is our chance to showcase two SuperATV employees who have similar machines that are equipped in totally different ways. If you’ve ever wondered what the SuperATV crew gets into when they’re not punching the time clock, here’s your chance.
In addition to getting a peek at some SuperATV employees outside of the office, Ride with Us is also a great reminder of what you can do with aftermarket UTV parts. No matter what style of riding you live for, SuperATV has what it takes to totally transform your ride.
But that’s enough chatting—let’s jump in and see what Corey Jackson and Andrew Simmons have done with their 2018 Polaris RZR XP 1000s.
Corey is the man behind the Facebook posts here at SuperATV. Our in-house social media guru has been riding for as long as he can remember—or at least for the last 25 years.
It’s hard to pick a favorite spot when you’ve been riding as long as Corey has, but there are a few places that stick out above the rest. Moab is one.
“Utah in general is amazing—you really can’t beat the scenery,” he said. “Dirty Turtle [in Kentucky] has always held a special place in my heart, too. I’ve been going there for years and it’s super close.”
Corey has seen his fair share of ride parks over the years, but nothing beats riding on private land. He has the most fun letting loose on his friends’ private land, where they can do whatever they want and go wherever their machines will take them.
And with a setup like his, that machine can take him pretty much anywhere. Corey’s 2018 Polaris RZR XP 1000 is riding on 8” portals and a totally upgraded suspension, all courtesy of SuperATV.
“The GDP Portal Gear Lift has been a complete game changer,” he said. “You get the lift and extra ground clearance without putting your axle CVs at crazy angles. And the gear reduction is a must for spinning bigger and heavier tires, and also reducing stress on the drivetrain.”
That, paired with our heavy-duty suspension arms, makes Corey’s RZR an unstoppable force on the trails.
Here’s a full rundown of the SuperATV parts you’ll find on this machine:
Andrew Simmons works in Inside Sales and Support, where he helps customers like you find the perfect parts for their ride style. He’s been riding for about six years, since he caught the off-roading bug from a buddy. Andrew started off with a good ol’ Polaris RZR 800 and later bought this brand-new 2018 RZR XP 4 1000.
When he’s home, Andrew does a lot of road riding. But he’s also had the pleasure of riding at parks across the country while he’s working shows for SuperATV. Some of his favorites? Busco Beach, River Run, and Muddy Bottoms.
No matter where he’s riding, Andrew knows that top-notch machine protection is a must. He’s been through enough to appreciate the value of a good bumper.
“SuperATV bumpers have saved my machine many times,” he said. “I once hit a deer going about 45 [MPH]. If I hadn’t had the SuperATV Front Bumper, my machine would have been totaled for sure.”
Another notable addition to Andrew’s RZR is his pair of RGB LED Whip Lights. “People comment on them every time I ride with a group.”
And just like Corey, Andrew has upgraded his suspension arms with a little help from SuperATV.
“I love SuperATV’s front A-arms and radius arms,” he said. “I bent my factory arms within a month of owning this machine. I’ve had the SuperATV parts since 2018 and have had no issues since.”
Here’s a list of all the SuperATV parts Andrew has added to his RZR:
We don’t discriminate when it comes to off-road vehicles—all machines, even bone stock rigs, are a blast and worthy of recognition. But there’s something extra special about a UTV that’s been outfitted to suit the needs of an individual rider. That type of personalization is at the heart of everything we do.
So whether you’re exploring your buddy’s property, hitting the pavement, or traveling to ride parks across the US, SuperATV has plenty of parts and accessories that will take your ride to the next level.

what is the purpose of 1.5 or 2. off set in the a frames want to raise my xp 1000 up
Hey Tom, the offset increases your wheelbase. The point is to give you more room for larger tires without a lift. You can read more about them here: https://www.superatv.com/offroad-atlas/what-can-off-set-a-arms-do-for-you/. If you want to raise your XP 1000, these offset A-arms aren’t what you want. Thanks for the question.
