Greetings from a new old guy!!

Greetings all.

Almost 53, got a Rhino a year ago and enjoying the heck out of it. I found this site doing a search for some Rhino items. Looks like a good place so, here I am.

A little about myself...I've had dirt toys the majority of my life and have raced motocross for years...still do!! We got the Rhino about a year and a half ago and have taken some pretty cool rides. I have a special needs stepson who has a 125cc quad and by us having the Rhino it allows us to enjoy the family fun.

My wife and I are career LEO's and retirement is not that far away. 30 years as a cop has taken a toll on my body and although I truly have a passion for motocross (and always will, just a bit slower now) I have decided that something a little less abusive to the body is in order!!

Our Rhino is stock and I probably won't change to much on it. I did add a center floor console and a windshield but that's it. I hope to learn more about the Rhinos from the people.

Would like the long travel but need to keep stock height to fit in the 5th wheel. Barely fits as it is!!

It'll fit. when you put a new roll cage on it too or just let the air outta the tires you have the rear bed on the chain system or the swinging bed on shocks either way you can make em go higher if needed.

Do a mid travel kit.....or atleast some offset wheels...or gulp...spacers to get it just a lil wider for safety and do harnesses for sure...stock belts are not safe!

Second the harnesses. And maybe new, more comfortable seats.
When we put a new cage on ours, it was a couple of inches shorter. At the very least offset wheels and/or spacers.

Oh, by the way. Thank you for your service!

welcome.

some suspension seats, a harness bar and good 4-5 point harness, will feel better and be safer.

The ride height, can be the same as stock if setup is good for the long travel also.

some good peeps and vendors on here can answer most, if not all your questions, and take care of any needs for the rhino.
