Are you ready for some insane mud riding? Do you want a beast of a machine that can’t be stopped? Do you want to stand above the crowd (and in the mud)? We did, so we took one of our favorite machines—the 2017 Polaris RZR XP Turbo—and decked it out with all the best SuperATV parts to make it the perfect mudding ride. The best part? If you want this machine, you can make it happen with zero custom work.
And once you make it happen, what you’re left with is a beast—a huge machine with sixteen inches of lift and massive 40″ tires, bringing the total height to nearly twenty-two inches over stock! But height isn’t the only weapon this monster is sporting. Not even close. We packed this build with enough bulletproof parts, high-tech tunes, and critical clutching to make it scream through the trail.
The most obvious and biggest way to go big is with new suspension, and bigger suspension paves the way for huge tires—the real heart of a custom build. But I’m getting ahead of myself.
For this build, we installed our fully adjustable 7-10″ lift kit right on top of our 6″ GDP Portal Gear Lift. That gives us massive clearance, plenty of room for some ridiculously huge wheels and tires, and the gear reduction we need to turn them.
Our fully adjustable 7-10″ lift kit can be set to 7″ or 10″, depending on your preference (but let’s face it—your going with 10″), and features high-clearance A-arms, radius arms, and trailing arms. This kit keeps your suspension out of the way so you don’t get hung up on the random debris that would normally smack right into your A-arms.
This lift oozes power through and through, with each item smartly designed to maximize style and strength. That’s why we built it with our unbreakable Rhino 2.0 Axles and heavy-duty steel throughout. Even our Z-bend tie rods are built with some serious gussets to keep them solid no matter how hard you hit that hole.
This lift kit is so strong that all the suspension parts come with a lifetime warranty, and our Rhino 2.0s come with an 18-month warranty. We’re pretty confident you won’t be breaking these parts anytime soon.
For that extra oomph, we installed our 6” GDP Portal Gear Lift. That brings the total lift up to sixteen inches! All that lift must put tons of stress on your suspension parts, right? That’s the beauty of GDP Portals—they don’t add any extra angle to your suspension, so we can plop our massive lift kit right on top without a care.
The other added benefit is the 40% gear reduction, which means we get a nice injection of torque to our drivetrain. We need all the torque we can get where we’re planning on going.
We knew we were going to be taking this souped-up Turbo through some pretty serious mud mayhem, so we stuck the biggest, baddest mud tire on the planet on there—40” Assassinator Tires. For those keeping track at home, that brings us up to twenty-two inches of extra clearance over stock. These tires have a 3” tread depth and a serious lug pattern designed specifically to destroy mud. We stuck them on a set of our 20” Healy Fast Series Wheels to make sure they keep turning no matter how much abuse we put them through.
With all that extra weight, we couldn’t settle for a stock clutch setup. If we stuck with stock, we’d be shredding belts every five minutes. Instead of carrying a dozen spare belts, we decided to install a Rev1 Clutch Kit. Not only will the new clutch springs and clutch arms save our belts, they’ll give us a nice torque boost in the mud.
We decided to take it a step further with a Rev1 ECU Tuner. By optimizing spark firing times and total turbo boost, we’re able to get a huge amount of extra horsepower and torque out of our humble Turbo. The best part is that it’s plug and play! A Rev1 ECU tuner is the easiest way to get a huge boost to performance. With it, you can go from mild to wild in under five minutes. Not a bad use of your time.
When going this big and with this much power, you need some serious protection. Luckily, we’ve got all that here at SuperATV.
Our fender protection kit was perfect for this build because it offers not only extreme front and rear bumpers, but also wrap-around protection over your wheel wells and along the sides below your doors. That means that no matter what angle you take a hit from, you and your lights and plastic body work are protected.
In the off chance that something jumped off the trail and cleared all twenty-two inches of lift, we don’t want to trust the health of our behinds to a stock skid plate. That’s why we use SuperATV’s ARMW skid plate. SuperATV’s proprietary skid plate material is similar to UHMW and has a very high abrasion resistance, unmatched impact strength, and ridiculously low-wear characteristics. It’s perfect for our extreme brand of mud holing.
We’re not planning on using it much, but it’s always good to bring along a 5000 lb. winch in case you have a low-talent moment. Better safe than sorry, we always say, and we might be able to help some other machines get out of their low-talent moments. Our 5000 lb. winch will pull us through any obstacle we get hung up on, even with all the extra lift and tire weight.
Just because we like to go big doesn’t mean we don’t like to have a few creature comforts. For this build, we installed our roof-mounted speaker system that features four 50-watt amps and a waterproof design. We wanted to make sure we could pump out the tunes as easily as we could roll through mud.
Of course we had a cargo box to keep… drinks… in. We would never go on a ride without it!
The last and probably the most important piece of the comfortable drive picture is our Scratch-Resistant Flip Windshield. This hard-coated polycarbonate windshield is bulletproof—literally. Polycarbonate is used in banks for security purposes, so we’re not just exaggerating when we say it’s bulletproof. You actually can’t break it. The hard coating gives it abrasion and UV resistance so you won’t mar it up just by going through a tight trail. It’s exactly the windscreen this extreme build needs.
If you’re ready to experience some insane mud riding for yourself, you’re in luck! This was done with zero custom fabrication. It uses the same off-the-shelf SuperATV parts that are available to our customers each and every day. So what are you waiting for? Your mud monster awaits!
