CC grips protect the cooling tubes down the sides of the running boards and also offer incredible grip.I'll take a pic of mine in awhile and post it.I went one step further and incorporated a drain in the front corner to evacuate all the melting snow.The flat AC grips tend to not heat the boards enough and it will take a while longer to melt the snow with them on.
The tool to do it with is cheaper than the flat style grip plates,30$.It takes about an hour ,after you figured out what pattern you like,then you gotta have the nerve to drill alot of holes in you new ride The final product was well worth the effort.The CC style gripplates are 50$ or so.
I 'd say performance wise the best thing was the drilled and flared foot grips like Redf5sp in combo with the AC side rail grips. For my back the best thing has been the reverse kit and for convenience the best thing was the AC dash bag and trunk bag.
I'd have to say the ISO-VIBE I installed on handlebars. Not only does it absorb all the vibration and shocks to the bars when hitting bumps,but I believe it helped to keep my bars from being bent when I rolled my sled about 3 times in a field. :wacko: Did break the kill switch off and flipped brake resesvoir upside down on handle bars, but no bent bars!
Does the iso-vibe raise the handlebars also? I am looking to extend my bars with a 6.5 riser but if the isovibe does the same thing I would do that instead. I made my own footgrips, drill small holes in the running boards and put bolts in upside down with about a quarter inch sticking out of the nyloc nut, it is the best thing I have done to my sled and it only cost me a little over 15 dollars. I will try and send a pic of it if I can get around to it tonight.
