Hello Everyone, I just signed up like 10 minutes ago and love this site!
I just picked up a 2004 500 Rubicon (Green) that was used and abused!
I bought it from the original owner who had teenage stepsons that really beat this thing up and I believe never ever gave the thing a bath! lol
From what I can tell it looks like they used this thing to mow over trees cause it pretty much needs everthing up front replaced like both lower headlightsand buckets,front bumper,front rack and the plastic nose piece that covers the front bumper.
My front fender looks good with no cracks but is missing the mounting bosses for the headlight buckets so I will probably need those too!
But its a Honda and even tho it has 7500 miles and close to 900 Hours this thing still runs like a watch and doesnt seem to have any tranny issues ive been reading about on this site.
While I have owned just about every Honda ATV made this is my first 4x4 Honda and the next closest thing was my 2000 350 Rancher that was 2 wheel drive that kinda sucked at plowing snow.
Ive been reading this site and see that nobody makes an aftermarket front bumper so Im thinking im gonna make my own and incorporate my winch into it.
I cant remember the members name but he did an excellent job on his bumper and im a decent welder and may just copy it ? lol
Thats it for now !!!! Ride Honda!!!!!!
