More and more race teams are moving towards Side by Side's to build serious prerunners for races south of the border. In this article we are going to dig into what makes the platform so attractive and what are the must have parts.
There are many great examples out there. This is our personal RZR and it was designed with everything we could dream up.
Polaris RZR, Can-Am, Yamaha and Textron are manufactures leading the sport SXS movement right now. The platform lends itself perfectly to this. 4x4, 18" wheel travel, 2 or 4 seat format, 150+ hp and less than 2000lb. They are powerful, nimble and easy to maintain. For under $20k you can pick up a stock unit with a factory warranty. You can absolutely use the machine as is or you can load the machine with after market parts and make it your dream machine.
Lets build a clean basic prerunner.
Stock Machine: Estimated $20,000
Tires: 32" Tensor DS $295 per tire (set of 5 $1475)
Build Total (Stock Machine plus Parts) $29,357
Exploring the back roads of Baja is priceless.
