Default New tires and LED light bar.

Old OEM tires got run down around 2500 miles. They did well. Put on Interco Swamp Lites. We'll see how they do. Also added an LED light bar as the stock headlights have never impressed me.

Once we end Daylight Savings Time our rides end in darkness sometimes.
We'll see how I like them on a ride. Must say the tires did well while Mrs. Moose and I were up in Maine. Didn't get to test them in the mud though. Nothing challenging in that respect other than one 50 yard climb up wet, soft clay that hasn't settle yet on a new trail. Nothing deep though.

Those swamplites do look good. You might convince me to get a set for my Grizzly yet. My stock tires are in need of replacement. Are those radials?

When I installed the light I made sure I could lay either my cooler or Rotopax gas cans flat without hitting the light. It also is behind the push bar so if I'm loading my quad in a truck the push bar will rest against the bed without the light getting hit.

I think the tires are just bias ply. Price-wise they can't be beat with a tire that size. I got up over 50 on a couple of the smoother trails in the backwoods of Maine and didn't feel them get squirrely in any way.
