That is not going to buff out.

You need to think about body armor not another off road vehicle.
Maverick has a roll cage.  That's a start.

New wheels and tires for the Maverick.  Had a long day so they will go on some time tomorrow.

Nice!  Those looks great....will you lose any power or speed due to size? 

Thanks for visiting the Cafe, come back often.  There's always something new!

I have to think I will lose some power.  It is not a heavy combination.  I will reclutch it as soon as I figure out which direction I want to go in.  These things have a stupid clutch design from the factory.  The turbo versions have a much better design so I may use that and upgrade a few things with it.   I'm waiting on word back from Air Dam on what he recommends and what it will cost.

They're a little bigger than I expected.  They are almost true to size which is rare.  They're 30x10 and actually measure 29.75" tall.  The best part is a I was worried it would be too wide for my liking.  I was expecting to be 69" wide, up from 64".  I'm sitting right at 67".  I gained almost 2" of ground clearance.

The extra ground clearance sure is nice!  Yup, you’re gonna get dirty with those!

There is a spot at the end of my neighbor's driveway where I drag the skid plate and one out behind the house on one of our trails where I drag.  Curious to see if the extra clearance solves that.  That is until I dig the ruts deeper.

Dumb question: do they make fender flares / extensions for it ?

If they do not you can always shade tree mechanic up some out of rubber roofing material or an old bed mat for a truck.

It might ugly up the front view a bit, but having at least the front tires covered might help you get back home cleaner.
- Then again I have seen what you can do without wider tires so it might be for not.. :redneck:

I'm considering something.  I've seen different fender options.  A lot of people make their own.  I may have to try at least one ride without them to see how bad it will be.  This thing is much different in the way it throws water and mid than the ATVs.  On our first ride out with it, I hit a roughly 2' deep mudhole within the first 10 minutes of the ride.  It was cooler out.  I knew we'd get splashed.  What I hadn't expected was a complete wall of water.  With the ATVs, it splashes outward.  With the SxS, it creates a vertical wave similar to diving in to a crashing wave at the beach.  With no roof and no windshield, we were 100% soaked and I was 110% in the dog house.  It wasn't until the third time out, while I was loading the ATVs back on the truck because we blew a tire out on one, that I told Cassie to go rip the SxS with her sister up and down this huge trail near the trucks.  With huge water holes, they both came back giggling and soaked, but it was her first time trail riding the SxS and she now had an understanding of what happened that first day.  Haha.

I bought them for Cassie's WRX.  You are right.  They are not cheap.  The way I am going to look at it until I actually get it out is that if I'm going riding I'm either hitting the mud holes and expect to get muddy or I'm avoiding them and it shouldn't be too bad.  Haha or somewhere in between which means I have to do something about it.

I recently did an alignment on it and then after putting the new tires on it you could clearly see the alignment was way off.  Tie rod end bolt was loose.  Tightened it down and it made it better but was still put.  Noticed I have a bent tie rod.  Realigned and it seems fine.  Infact, it turns much sharper now so I assume it was out of whack and bent for some time now.  The new wheel and tire setup should have it turning wider.  Wonder what I was missing before.
