It secures the spare tire to the cargo bed for good rearward visibility and lets you effortlessly move the spare tire out of the way to access bed contents. The new design offers great functionality with many upgrades. The main platform is wider with dimpled and slotted utility plates welded in to provide a flat area for storage on the top or bottom. For added stability, two hinge pivots were added where the rack mounts to the cage.

HARDLINE TERMINAL TENDER BATTERY POST EXPANDERS
At this point, there are probably only two or three UTVs out there without some kind of added electrical accessory, but some of the wiring jobs out there are scary looking.

HARBOR FREIGHT PITTSBURGH 1/2-INCH-DRIVE CLICK-TYPE TORQUE WRENCH

Polaris requires RZR XP 1000 lug nuts to be torqued to 120 pound-feet, Can-Am specifies 74 pound-feet for many machines, and guessing at high torque specs could mean broken studs or loose wheels. Harbor Freight’s Pittsburgh 1/2-inch-drive click-type torque wrench clicks to let the user know a specific torque setting has been reached when tightening a fastener. It’s only $19.99 and offers torque settings from 20 to 150 pound-feet with a metric scale also, making it useful for common jobs from properly tightening wheel lug nuts to cylinder head bolts.
