Hey guys...clicked on a link from Facebook...and here I am.
Been riding ATV's since the late 70's.

Current ride is a 2007 Rhino 450.
It has a 3" SuperATV lift,and is either rolling on 26" Bighorns and ITP Type4's or 30" Silverbacks and ITP SS112's...depending on where we're riding.

Well...enough blah blah.here's a few pics,some older than others...

Welcome to the site my friend!

If you have any I wouldn't mind seeing some pic's of your snorkel setup (my rhino is a 450 also). I have been debating on snorkeling mine for a while now just have set down and done it..

Next time I have the cowl off I'll try to remember to take some pics.
It's not pretty.We just took it apart and started building with what we had left over from other snorkel projects.
This winter...after we finish the new stereo,we're going to extend the snorkels up about another 6" or so.(to just below the roofline...can't be too careful.lol)

From looking at your videos I have to agree you can't be to careful lol.. I like to play in the mud on occasion and have filled my clutch a few times so it needs some snork's..

The 450 may not have a high top speed but it will turn some big tires! New guy from Texas 9695

In response to the compliments on the big tires...here are a few more pics.

BTW...they are 30x9x14 fronts on 14x6 SS112's and 30x11x14 rears on 14x8 SS112's.
The bike has a SuperATV 3" lift.
So far other than the snorkel,the only performance mods are a DG pipe,jet kit,Uni air filter,and a shim mod on the clutch.
I'll be adding a different spring and weights to the clutch pretty soon...and possibly upgrade the ignition.
I'll also be rebuilding the stereo system(four 6.5" Polk Audios powered by a 4x50w Soundstorm amp) and adding four 6x9 Polk Audios and a 4x75w Polk Audio amplifier,Fuzion Marine stereo/ipod controller,and a second battery.
It will also get several more sets of LED's installed.

Looks awesome with those tires bro! Has it ever bogged down on you?

I got to say the best mod for performance I have made to mine is the clutch work.

Honestly yes...the first trip to Crosby with the 30's...before the jet kit,exhaust,filter,and clutch shim mod...
I dropped off in a hole that was so sticky that the tires wouldn't even turn.
But...I don't think any mods I could have done would have made any difference in that hole(aside from somehow cramming a SBC in the Rhino,lol)...so I can't blame it on that.

I just ask because I run 26's and have never needed low range because high range is so low! I knew those tires would but some stress on it..

For now...yes.
However...it's a small cheapo 50wx4 amp...and I really don't push it that hard(don't have to with them right above my head,lol).
I will be adding a second battery once we rebuild the stereo to add the radio,second amp and 4 more speakers.

Well guys...I know I've been MIA for awhile.

I broke a shock on New Years Day...and while the Rhino was down...I decided to make a few upgrades.

It's undergone a pretty substantial change.
Now...it's not completely done yet...
I still need to do the clutch,stereo,snorkels,and swap the exhaust... and a few other things.
But I couldn't wait...and had to post some pics.

Above is what it looked like before(except it had 28" backs on SS212's prior to the transformation).

Here it is so far...

Almost forgot to mention...
A big thanks to Scott (Pahrump) at Wicked Motorsports for taking care of my plastic and getting a bunch of parts for me.
Also...thanks to the guys at Orange County Powdercoating for giving my cage/wheel rings/chassis braces a little color.
