Do it......build prototypes of what folks here can use, send them to your "shop" at home, and then produce what you can either at home or there where you are.........God is good Jamie and HE is taking care of YOU.......Dennis

I’ve purchased several items from peanut over the years and can say he builds a high quality product.

A brush guard would be nice.
Mine is bent where it cannot be straightened...where it bolts to the chassis.
This OEM guard has poor quality welds IMO.

thanks for the compliments guys and gals. i went on a job yesterday at m&l industries the same place i went to a few years ago and asked if i could get measurements off their rtv'swell the dirt bag that ran the place when i went retired .while i was there i was given permission to look at and take pictures of their rtv's. i told them what i do and they was interested so i have to go back next week to talk to the manager about making stuff for the rtv's.they had 2 1140's in their shop they was assembling and i looked them over.first thing i would do if i had one would be to yank off them stabilizer bars way to restrictive and without them it would give the new a arm suspension more travel and give smoother ride.second is with the new suspension i would add a lift kit nuthing huge just about 2 or 3 inches. new front bumpers for sure .i talked with a mechanic that was there and told him about the problems that i heard most people complain about so this guy started popping off panels so i could look at the new up grades . the biggest thing that i seen they did was make the newer hydraulic tanks out of metal and they moved them from the rear next to the exhuast to under the passenger side of the seat. this should heek the oil cooler and the metal tanks should last like it should now.

the mechanics told me the new guy running the place is alot more friendlier than the old guy and told me to come back next week and talk to him.i told them about this website and to come here to look at my work and maybe get feed back and also to see i'm not joking about making parts for the rtv's.i havent gone back to the other company yet to see about their rtv's so it looks like maybe ill have 2 places to get measurements from . i would much rather go to m&l because they are a dealer and will have all new stuff not to mention older models to that people trade in or bring in for repairs.i want to ask the manager to let me trick out 1 rtv and have him put it out on the lot next to the stock ones and see what happens.

while looking at the 1140's i was thinking of how i could make a set of bedrails for it that fold with the bed. it would be a challenge but if i can pull it off i think it would be wild.

You could straighten this Peanut.
Best I could do is bend the other side to match.
Notice how the passenger side is pushed back.

Agree! If you have a welder, cut the crease at the bottom of the dent and pull the sections out, smack 'em with a hammer to get them back in shape and reweld the cut.

I'll also vouch for Peanuts workmanship and first class quality work on the stickstoppers.

Thanks but I don't own a welder.

Taking this to a local weld shop would likely result in a charge equal to a new guard.

In this area (DC Metro)we are subject to the NVA tax where everything costs 50% more than most other locations.
