    XX upgrade questions

    I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on a few things for me.

    I need rock sliders but not a fan of the textron sliders as they're kinda small and don't seem to be mounted very well. They might be more for "looks" rather than "function". So I'm checking out the 1/2" UHMW sliders from Factory UTV. I notice there's an option for countersunk hardware if not using their full skids. Ok, I get that.. But if I order the countersunk hardware option now, and use my factory skids, can I still use the same sliders if I upgrade to their full skids later?

    Also, I'm looking to upgrade the headlights to some COB LEDs. Is H13 the right bulb? Will the little cooling fans on them survive the mud and water?

    Lastly- Is there any difference in the steering rack bushing from Speedwerx, and the Wildcat Willy's bushing from D&P?

    Thanks!!

    I got the H13 Beamtech lights with heatsinks instead of fans from Ebay for pretty cheap and they work great so far.

    I had a 2012....cracked engine case stock, then w/ MCX Turbo and STM Clutch broke 2 crankshafts, and blew up 2 rear diffs,

    Then got a 2014 X Limited....leaked oil since new, bent crankshaft, and cracked the stator cover....

    Got a RZR XPT..hauls ass, rides great, handles terrible, sucks in the whoops

    Thanks yall..
    I emailed F-UTV and they said I could still use their sliders if/when I upgrade to the full skids. -Sliders coming soon.
    I ordered the steering bushing from D&P. They're on sale right now (-$10) if anyone has been thinking about getn one.
    I'm back in the office today so gonna look for and order some H13 LEDs w/out the fans.

    Installed the steering rack bushing this weekend. Still haven't ordered the other parts yet, been putting most of my extra cash into converting my enclosed trailer.
