Sounds like some great progress. I thought you mentioned before that you were thinking of goin a different direction?

Everybody I have talked to has said to go with a stm secondary that has a roller helix instead of the factory non roller that wears out quicker due to the increased weight of the rhino (more stress on helix). Mine weighs 1260 lbs in the 2 seat configuration, stock drivetrain and rims/tires.. Getting to the clutch cover requires the sectioning of a part of the seat frame so that it can be easily removed and unbolting and moving the fuel cell out of the way, not something you want to do on the trail a bunch of times.. I would also consider an stm primary over the airdam... well that discussion could go on forever..
