The CT kit went in pretty easily on my 19 XRS. My front diff moved easily enough for me to get the bolts in. Worst part for me was getting the "bridge plate" inserted into the frame over the front diff. Directions stated it had to go in from the driver's side (specifically for a smart lock car). I horsed around with it for 20 minutes swearing at it, the entire time my wife asking me if it was supposed to go in from the passenger side. I showed her the instructions (again) and walked away for 2 minutes. Came back and it was in,,,, Wife said, "it slid right in from the passenger side". :sneaky:

Between the two of us, we got it done pretty easily.

I figure I might be bolting the winch in the bumper then lifting the hole thing on. But there's these 4 bolts in the center, not sure how those are going to help or hurt my plans.
I figured I may end up installing a winch at some point,,,, so I got CT's winch bulkhead and installed it at the same time in case those plans work out.

My wife is actually a HUGE help when it comes to this kind of stuff. She has a very logical mind and is stupid mechanically inclined. She makes me look foolish occasionally, as she did with the bridge plate. There are only a few of those unicorns, and I actually found one.(y)

Been working on the car this weekend,,, finally cooled off enough for me to wonder outside and start in on the "Pile-o-Parts" next to the Can Am.

Ordered a tune and stuff this "off-season" so I wanted to tear down the rear only once if I could get away with it. Figured I'd have a bunch of stuff apart,,, do it all at once so I don't have to repeatedly take it apart.

Not quite done yet,,, here is the list so far.

Treal Can. Seems to be a good fit. She's a bit close to the rear shock assy,,, but at full extension I have a few mm's, so she should be good.🤞

261311


Installed an RPM BOV and re-route kit as well. (Not a fan of the constant BOV sound) Routed the kit to the 2020 Air box I installed this weekend as well. BOV and Air box for the AA Stage 3 I will be installing shortly.

261312

261313


Installed a Silber Turbo-Back Exhaust for the tune as well..... NOT impressed with the quality of the Silber!!! I will probably be ripping this b!tch out and fixing it on my own or replacing it with a quality item. But I digress.

261314



ZRP Radius Rods, and a CT Nut Plate kit.

261315


I installed a set of Fenix Safety lights in leu of a Chase Light. (not wired yet,,, just installed)

261316


Finally, the HSP's I ordered several months ago are going in. Left one OEM in for now as a comp. The HSP's sit quite a bit higher than OEM. I like it,,,, but they do advertise "same" height as stock. Negative. Probably gonna have to ditch the Can Am Shoulder Bag. Pretty much useless once both the seats get installed due to the extra width.

261317


Took her out for a quick shake-down run after all was back together. Scared myself a bit,,, She seemed like a turd. I told myself that maybe it had just been a while since I'd driven it and I was remembering it being quicker than it is. (no tune installed yet,,, just intake/exhaust stuff) BUT,, I was still questioning everything I had just done in case I missed something.

Pulled into the garage, and THEN realized I was in Eco mode and didn't realize. :rolleyes:

Still have to install the Tune and Clutch kit, and re-do a bunch of wiring (including the Chase Light wiring) to get it all up to my idea of "snuff". And fully install both seats.

Hopefully next weekend.

Wrapped up the electrical today. Had to relocate the SP since the new seat frames hit one of the connectors where it was mounted. (OEM seats didn't hit it.) Made a mounting plate for the SP, and TB's. Didn't want any more any more holes than are already there. Used three of the OEM mounting points to mount the plate to the rear wall, tapped the holes for the rest so they simply screw into the plate. All the wiring was already pulled through the rear wall in random places per the old set up. Didn't want to re-do that,,, so it's not as clean as I'd like,,, but it's pretty tight.

Got the Chase lights running as well. Video doesn't do them justice,,, they are a little blinding actually.o_O

Hmmm, Can't upload video, I was hoping I could insert it like an image. Never done that here, gonna have to figure that one out. Here's a frame grab anyway... Video is much more impressive.

Got the both seats in, Installed the PV3 and tune, Whipped up a mount for the PV3 and got her mounted in the final location. I loathe velcro for attachment purposes,,, but used the 3M stuff the PV3 came with so I can easily remove the PV3 when in camp / during inclement weather etc. (Still hate velcro!!):cautious:

Done for the weekend,,,, only thing left for the car is the AA clutch kit I purchase that goes along with the PV3/tune.

Next weekend will be the clutch, then she's done for the season.

I don't have before,,, but I do have after if it helps.

Mine are angled out to the side for max spread since I have other lights for distance. The below images are the BD headlight kit only. I set up the camera exposure as best I could to mimic what I see with the naked eye.

That is pretty impressive on the sides compared to stock. All you need now is something deep down field in the form of a spot to light up the trail
I do,,, XL80's on the A-pillars,, they just aren't on in the pic. Makes a good combo.

Not a huge or difficult mod, but.....

Our last trip to the dunes one in our group lost his battery. Was perfect in camp,,, ran fine the entire ride. Turned it off while we were at the swing set for about 20 min. Tried to start her up and it was COMPLETELY dead. No indicators would light up,,, nothing! Luckily someone in our crew had a small jump pack and it fired right up.

Scared me a bit, so I purchased a small jump pack to keep in my ride. THEN realized I can't jump the damn thing with the seat installed,,,, hence today's mod.

They sell kits for this,,, but they were pretty expensive and "cheesy" for the $$. I opted to buy a couple components and rig it up myself.

PS,, these things are MUCH larger than I thought they were gonna be.😳

The only thing I "purchased" for the mod was the Pos/Neg terminals, and a Copper Ring Terminal kit, both of which I purchased from Amazon. (the Cu terminal kit is quite nice,,, wish I would have purchased one of these years ago)

The aluminum, Lexan, Delron, wiring, Teckflex, etc I already had on hand in my array of "project bins".

The loom on the wiring is called TechFlex. (many different manufacturers for this) I generally have an abundance of that stuff in all sizes since I always seem to be wiring something up for hobbies such as this. I just wrapped it round some 4Ga wire I had from my last Car Audio install. (Daughter's Mustang)
