Hi Everyone,
Living in Las Vegas, NV
Ordered my 2021 Can Am Maverick X3 Max XRS Turbo RR Smart Shocks in December and it arrived at the Dealer February 26th. The good I had a lot of time to research all the aftermarket parts available. The Bad my bank account don't like me anymore as I have seemed to buy almost everything you can to put on it. The good all the parts are paid for and should all be here by the time the Can Am arrives. (5/26/21 Update build still in progress and last part to arrive June 7th) Some will Love this build while others will probably hate it, but that is ok I did go a little crazy on the extras. In the beginning I had no idea I would build it like this, but also didn't have any idea there was that many aftermarket parts to add. End result is I think this build will let me do anything I ever care to do with it. Key parts Portals, Ross Hydro Steering, Halo 30, Turner Axles.

AGM The Electric Jack
AGM Electric Jack installed on the Can AM. This required Relocating Whips, and radio antenna with brackets from Axia Alloys, and replacing my Linq Pivoting Tire rack with a dual clap spare tire mount by Factory. I had to pull cage together a little bit with a strap to get the Factory tire mount on. This seems to make the rear roll bar more rigid, along with the AGM jack also pushing out against the cage

What a weird cake decorated build with nothing there to make it stronger. Good luck bolting all that crap on and expecting it to actually perform like a sport machine.
So your saying that none of these suspension parts make it any stronger.

Curious about those 37X10.5 tires on 18X7’s. Never seen that set up before..

EDIT: And automatic doors ... Will they scissor or?
I am still building not tested. Had to run the 18 inch wheels to fit around the Portal gear drive that is 30% gear reduction, I wanted a 15% reduction that they dont make so trying to make up some of the top speed i will loose with the gear reduction. I plan to do a lot of rock crawling with it so wanted as much clearance as possible. Ground clearance should be at 25.5 inches from stock 16 inches when its all done.

auto doors is just what the call the gas shock that lets doors open up all the way when you unlock it. Doors will open like normal you just wont need to manually do it or hold it open against the wind

With all those parts why no gusset kit, shock tower brace to actually strengthen the front end?
I do have a lot of other strengthening parts going on it just not sure exactly what they all are.. I did do the shock tower brace that is part of the lights. I did the portal frame braces, front bumper, back bumper with all the extra braces they come with. I am $20K over my original budget. I will put this all together and run it hard. weak links will break and get upgraded.

Yes they DO NOT make it any stronger, in fact you will find the frame WILL fail a lot faster. When ordering parts you forgot to research what you are actually spending money on. And again i will refrain to the “cake decorating” comment.

Your going to hate life if you don't beef up the known weak areas. Especially if it fails on you in the middle of BFE.
Your shock town light bar brace isn't any better than the factory metal brace that only connects to the plastic fan shroud and not the metal frame.

This will give you an idea on how to fix the known factory weak points.

Since i am adding the winch i will also be adding the CT Bomb proof gusset kit,and the upper shock mount along with the shock tower brace. There is more parts going on it to replace the common weak points. I have no idea what all the parts are. I just told the dealer to upgrade all weak links they see coming in to be repaired minus the weak links to prevent more expensive components breaking. And for the cake decorating part that is my doing so i can enjoy all aspects of the ride beyond just the performance part of it.

Thanks for the video. I see a few things i dont think the dealer was doing so i will make sure they do everything in the front that was in the video. Its possible they have it included but not sure just know the build is in the $80K range.

That’s your EXACT problem, you are trusting a dealer for all this. Good luck, I foresee major issues and more of your money to be spent at another shop to correct what your “dealer” fell short on. Good luck, you will need it.

$80k, You have more accessories on there than the car itself is worth. To each their own I guess.
Ya base price is $32K + Tax. so everything else was added for my enjoyment and to improve weak links. I sent the video to the dealer and said to make sure this is all added. Thanks again.
