In last week’s Featured Ride, I talked about a couple of reasons why we really enjoy going to UTV and Side by Side events. The opportunity to meet like minded people who come together because of the love for the off road experience is fantastic, and a UTV rally brings out enthusiasts of every age, both male and female. As I said last week, it’s so much fun to take a UTV out and hit the trails, but in the end getting a chance to see old friends, as well as make some new friends, is really what makes a rally enjoyable for us!
Today’s featured ride comes by way of owners Matt and PJ Caton. The Caton’s tricked out rig is a 2013 limited edition Jagged X 900 XP4 RZR. I ran into Matt and his friend Terry Dick while attending the Rally on the Rocks in Moab, Utah. Matt and Terry were assisting a stranded fellow UTV enthusiast, and after chatting for a bit, they invited us to go to the sand dunes to do some jumping.
Matt’s Jagged X 900 XP4 is a serious rig stock from the factory, but Matt’s 900 is far from stock. The Jagged X was limited to 1500 units and comes factory with a custom Jagged X roll bar, doors and decal wrap. Inside, Matt added new PRP custom seats and a Kicker Duner Tunes stereo system. The 900 HO engine now has dual SLP exhaust to add some additional horsepower. LED lights in the front and back, Polaris windshield and roof, and a 4500 winch are a few of the accessories added to this rig.
One of the big upgrades is the HCR long travel suspension kit that gives the 900 a sweet aggressive stance. The kit makes the RZR 6″ wider than factory and gives substantial ground clearance and travel over the factory setup. Matt also added 32″ STI Roctane tires mounted on STI Beadlock rims. Add a set of King Off-Road racing shocks and Summers Brothers axles, and you have the right combination to take this 900 XP4 in the dirt, mud, sand, rocks or air with ease.
Thanks Matt and PJ for showing us your bad ass rig. It was a real pleasure for us!
