2015 Polaris RZR XP 4
Every once in awhile a truly unique vehicle is built that makes people wonder why they didn’t think of doing that. “Depth Finder,” custom built by Super ATV, is one of those vehicles that really steps outside the normal thought process that goes into a custom build. Built for the tv series Destination Polaris, every inch of “Depth Finder” has been customized giving this machine a truly one of a kind look.
Built around Super ATV’s new boxed suspension technology, “Depth Finder” has a stance and look that is influenced by the look of the military issued Humvee. The fabricators at Super ATV removed the stock roll cage and started from scratch to build a one of a kind square tubing cage and roof that has some of the same design characteristics of the boxed suspension components.
Dave Griffin, Lead Prototype Tech with Super ATV, showed us some of the key design elements of “Depth Finder.” Dave explained, “One of the key features of this build is the use of our brand new Gear Driven Performance Portal Lift system. This allows us to have an insane lift on this machine while retaining a safer axle shaft angle thanks to the design of the gear box style lift system.”
Dave went on to explain about the 30% gear reduction that Super ATV’s Portal Lift offers, “Oversized wheel and tire combinations steal performance from your machine, the gear reduction is the needed balance between large tires and retaining performance.”
18” MSA Wheels, a set of 36” Terminator Tires and a 7” to 10” lift really gives “Depth Finder” a massive amount of ground clearance. Smoothing out the ride and helping with the ground clearance is the custom set of Walker Evans’ shocks.
Custom doors and body panels were added, furthering the sleekness and style of this machine. A set of bomber style aluminum seats really sets off the look, adding to the military theme and styling. The Super ATV fabricators even fabricated a missile looking cover to hide the over-sized shock reservoirs located in the rear of the machine.
When Dave was asked about performance engine upgrades he told us they had a turbo kit for “Depth Finder,” but had yet to get it installed. Check out the video and images below.
