Off-road wheels are limited by material. Steel wheels have heavy-duty durability, their construction is consistent, and they offers better resistance to dirt, sand, and other elements.

Method Wheels has a huge selection of alloy wheels that are known in the off-road industry as a premium wheel.

One of the easiest and most important aftermarket additions to any off-road vehicle is it's storage capability. Whether you're going camping, hunting or exploring, you'll need a convenient and effective way to carry important tools, equipment and resources.

HMF Dual Full Exhaust System
Performance aftermarket modifications aren't for the faint at heart. A lot of the performance modifications made to ATVs and UTVs, like exhausts or clutches, require quiet a bit of knowledge and some technical know-how to properly install and setup.
Exhaust systems are typically the best place to start when making performance upgrades. Most slip on systems bolt right up to the stock head pipe and can instantly increase power and torque. HMF Engineering develops high end aftermarket exhaust systems that are built to maximize performance while adding the durability necessary to ride aggressively off-road. They make systems for hundreds of ATVs and UTVs, so finding a system that fits your application should be a breeze.
Keep in mind, whenever you change the exhaust system, you're actually changing the way the air flows through the machine, thus changing the air-to-fuel ratio. Recalibrating the fuel system is typically required, whether that's via carburetor jets or electronic fuel maps (EFI).
One of the quicker ways of giving your machine some more performance is with aftermarket air filters. K&N and Outerwears together work a great deal of magic on your machine's intake. You'll see a big increase in air flow and the Outerwears filter helps keep dust and debris out of the engine.

Many riders out there use their off-road vehicles for work, so having the ability to grab, pull and tow is very important. Even in an emergency, being able to pull and tow your way out of dicey situation can be the difference between getting home early and getting home at all.
