SHREVEPORT, LA – August 5, 2012 – (Motor Sports Newswire) -High Lifter Products Inc., the leader in custom aftermarket ATV accessories and products, today announced the debut of its newest custom monster UTV build – the Teeter Totter.
Three months in the making, the top-secret build stole the show as at the 2012 Polaris Dealer Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Polaris President and COO Bennett Morgan promised the crowd that “bigger and better things are coming from Polaris in 2013” as Teeter Totter’s 640 horses were fired up. As the engine revved and entered the arena to pick up Morgan, thousands of cameras flashed as the crowd went wild over the monster RZR XP 4 900.
Beginning with a stock 2013 Polaris RZR XP 4 900, High Lifter’s team deconstructed the RZR and began to add significant customizations to make Teeter Totter the only monster RZR XP 4 900 in the world. To power the ride, High Lifter added a 383 Chevy stroker motor with 640 horses. To top off the mechanics of making Teeter Totter drive, they added a two-speed powerglide shorty transmission with trans brake, Griffin radiator, Pro Fab reverse rotation drop box, PSC double-ended ram steering, and a custom 12-gallon stainless steel fuel tank created by Mezco.
High Lifter then selected 54” Super Swamper Bogger tires and custom High Lifter wheels to add to the ride that was outfitted with 2 ½ ton military axles, custom four-link suspension, 18” Walker Evans air shocks, a C Squared roll cage, and sway bars. The result was a RZR XP 4 900 that sits a whopping six feet off the ground. While the High Lifter team did make major changes to create the monster RZR XP 4 900, they did retain as many stock Polaris parts as possible including the frame, body, seats, and steering wheel.
“We were so excited when Polaris approached us earlier this year to create this special project for the 2012 Polaris Dealer Show in Las Vegas,” said Scott Smith, president of High Lifter Products. “We’re always thinking outside of the box when it comes to off-road vehicles and when it comes to creating something of this magnitude, you’ve got to have a big vision and the knowledge to execute it successfully. The Teeter Totter project allowed us to take some of our wildest ideas for the RZR and execute them to make a one-of-a-kind vehicle that turns heads wherever it goes.”
The Teeter Totter project is the third monster UTV build High Lifter has created. The first two monster builds involved Polaris Rangers, with one of those builds being a major crowd attractor at High Lifter events, including the ATV Mud Nationals held every spring in Jacksonville, Texas.
