Here are some pics I took of my hack job on dad's Kaw. I like the looks 100% better and the old man deos too.

I took 4"s out of both the front and rear bars. I drilled holes in all eight (top and bottom) ends and welded sleeves inside all four. Then I welded the cuts I make in all corners and shortened the rear cross bars and welded them back in place. It took about two hours total and an extra set of hands to set the top half back in place.

Thanks Tim, Todd, and Brian for tips on how to do it allright

Nice. I would not mind dropping the Rhino about 3" myself. Maybe one of these days. Does your old man drive the Kawi? Maybe you could convince him to come on a ride with us sometime.

I don’t know if I'm going to chop the RZR or not. I like the factory accessories like the overhead bad, the top, and front windshield. I guess if my friends keep chopping theres I'll have to follow along thatsright

Looks good Dodd. I would not chop the top of the RZR. Your head is already to close. There is lots of room to drop it on the teryx.

I drilled the holes to spot-weld the sleeve inside the stock cage. Then welded around the cuts like this.
