new guy from Reno / Sparks Nevada - pics

Just got a new to me 08 700 FI.

Woohoo!!!

Been wanting a Rhino for about 5 yrs.

Looked at all the newcomers - Mule, Ranger, Prowler, even the Teryx.

After all that, still came back to the Rhino. Figured it was the best designed and worked through machine around.

It has 54 hrs 330 miles. Stock except for the aftermarket tailpipe cover.

It's spotless. Owner took immaculate care of it.

Has half windshield, roof and that's it.

Put 1" Spacers on front and 2" on rear.

Bought some like new ITP 589 M/S 27's and ITP Black Delta wheels.

Besides the wheels, I could use some suggestions on the most effective upgrades, in order of priority.

I'll use it primarily for getting out in the hills, hunting and just plain screwing around.

One of my priorities is reliability. I've been in some way----way--- out of reach areas on my quad. So I really wanna be able to get back.

I'm really interested in the following upgrades:

* exhaust mods that quiet the noise. (improve performance also? )
* Front winch with light bar.
* rear bed hard cover, cargo net
* lighting upgrades, electrical system upgrades
* ways of plugging areas where dust gets in
* sound dampening rattles
* anything else that I don't know that I need?


I'm doing a ton of research and reading as many threads as I can about members experiences and suggestions.

Looking forward to learning a lot from you guys.

---stay stock that is the best way to be quiet. save your money all after markets are louder and you will have to mess with the CDI..

* Front winch with light bar.
----winch I'm no help..all mine are hidrolic..light bar amber LED bar from rigid best for dust up in the hills ..they can help with all your lighting needs

* rear bed hard cover, cargo net
----???????????????? no idea

* lighting upgrades, electrical system upgrades
* ways of plugging areas where dust gets in
------jimmyzz vendor here has a bad ass alternator kit best price around..and he is a very cool dude

* sound dampening rattles
* anything else that I don't know that I need?
-----lock box for hand gun with cup holders....and stop buy cobelas they have a rifel rack for a jeep that will mount in the bed

THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE FASTER
