An off-road golf cart is a lot of fun driving through the woods or on rough terrain, but building your own cart is an even more pleasant experience because you did that it yourself and saved a lot of money. It is easy to customize a golf cart for these kinds of purposes. It is best to start with a reliable well-maintained used golf cart. The necessary parts and supplies can be found in specialty stores and even cheaper on the internet.
There are many accessories that you can add to your cart. Here is a list of adjustments to help you on your way:
Liftkits: Lifting sets are suspension parts that lift the body of your golf cart to drive on off-road terrain. These sets are not only necessary to increase the height of the golf cart, but they also add a stronger suspension to the vehicle. Off-road driving exposes you to various locks and areas where a cart with a lower profile would be hung. Without these kits you can injure yourself or damage the cart. There are many different types of lift kits. They come in 3 inches, 6 inches and higher. The price of the lift kit varies from $ 300 to $ 600, depending on the lift height and the complexity of the suspension.
Steering wheels: Steering wheels, although not necessary, contribute to a better driving experience. An attractive steering wheel not only increases the appearance of your vehicle, but also ensures better grip and less fatigue of your hands and wrists. Your steering wheel must be 13 inches in diameter. You have many choices in style of the steering wheel such as wood grain, formula car, European and neoprene. Expect to pay $ 45 for neoprene to $ 190 for the Formula Gt steering wheel.
Golfkar Windscreens: most of the stock of golf carts do not have a windshield. But you're going to need one to go off-road. While driving you will encounter mud and dirt, not to mention the occasional branch. If you are unsure whether a windshield needs a valve that can be folded down, you have an option to use it or not. Windshield prices range from $ 100 to $ 200, depending on the unfolding, the style of the frame and the thickness of the acrylic.
ATV tires: Of course you can not use spare golf cart tires, you have to upgrade them to All Terrain Vehicle tires. You need them for their durability on rough terrain and to give you maximum grip on muddy ground. When purchasing tires you have a wide choice of rim and tire combinations. It is best to skip the low-profile tires and get a tire with good traction and tread. The 23×10.5-12 All Trail Tire with the alloy wheels is the best choice for great traction and style on all types of terrain. With tire and rim combinations you can walk between $ 45 and $ 140. This is the most important part of your off-road upgrades, not to skimp on this department.
This is all you need to build a first-class machine. But if you want an even smarter machine, you can add light packages, dashboard kits, mud guards, freight boxes and yacht accessories.
Prepare for an enjoyable time in the country with your new off -Road cart. It is a great cheap alternative to purchasing a new ATV.
