Is it just me or is everything a pain in the ass on the mav? I guess I'm use to a rhino where you can access everything very easy. Seems like every little thing is a battle. I haven't even wired my light bars due to the pain in the ass plastics with no hood that will simply raise I mean really just make a hood that tilts up . Ok I'm done for a minute on my wild rant ! :crazy:

Where exactly are you trying to mount the lights? I was able to mount a 40" LED on top of the cage. I only had to remove the rocker switch/dash panel and the passenger side snap on panel (the one with Maverick sticker). Aside from running the wires through cage tubing, it was fairly easy.

I think you are very mistaking on how to wire your lights. This thing is a breeze. If you have ever owned a teryx you will understand why the maverick is way easy to work on.

also take a tiny dab of grease and put it on the knobs on the hood and its easier to take off, just a tiny touch is all it takes.

I guess I'm spoiled working on the rhino. Just removing plastics blew to install doors. I'm trying to set up a nice positive and negative buss under the hood and just so many pieces of plastic. Still thing a tilt hood would have been nice.

Is the wire under the dash large enough to handle a 40 inch bar ? Or u talking just to power the switch side of the relay ?

I will have to give that a look never thought it would have 10awg wires just chilling.. I wanna say a 40 inch dual down pulls like 20amps which equals 10awg wire possibly 12awg since stranded handles little more load.

No doubt about that!
