Not really, but more importantly, why? I'm sure I can offer some terrible advice like a Busa motor fits great in there :p

If it doesn't already have a winch that would be my first recommendation. I use mine consistently. My "riding security" is a SR45.

Understandable. Not for everyone. My sidearm in the military was a 1911 so I kinda feel vulnerable without one. I see you are located in NY. I also have a 60 inch Warn blade for mine I use to plow the snow off our driveway. Our driveway is 800 ft. long so I don't have a choice if we want to get out after a lot of snow.

Yep. For me it鈥檚 a necessity but I really don鈥檛 mind. It鈥檚 fun. I will plow a couple of my neighbors as well. Older gentlemen living across the street and next door. Used to have to ride down the road a couple of miles to plow my wife鈥檚 uncle鈥檚 driveway when he was alive.
Wasn鈥檛 sure of your situation. A smaller blade would work just fine. For me 3 passes and the longest part is cleared unless the snow is measured in feet vs inches. That doesn鈥檛 happen here very often.

Performance Upgrades: Upgraded the front differential to a Halo 30 Locker with a billet case and chromoly carrier and added 33 spline Turner axles. New clutches and belt. Flashed the computer so it now has 212hp. Also added an air separator.

Just to make it look badass upgrades: Wheels, tires and custom-made (here at the house) nerf bars, roof and wings. Replaced stock seats with heated racing seats and added after market decals.

For added safety: Warn winch, several extra lights and Custom built (here at the house) roll cage.

Stumbled across this different look for a UTV a few weeks ago. Reviews on it are very good, and I love the idea of a small turbo diesel. Not cheap, and not technically street legal even though it looks like an old street legal vehicle. :)
