A wild, customized ATV or UTV is one of our favorite things to see when we visit riding areas or off-road shows. It never fails to amaze us what creative and mechanical minds can come up with. The latest project from Marshall Motoart will be difficult to top.
Dubbed 2011 Project X “Spider Monkey,” this project transforms the Polaris Ranger 6×6 into an off-road tamer to be behold. It comes outfitted with a wagon (making the 6×6 a 10×6!), as well as a turbo engine, air suspension, lights galore, extra fuel containers, a booming sound system and a tent.
If you want to see how the “Spider Monkey” was put together, you can check out the Destination Polaris Show on the Outdoor Channel every Monday through August 1, 2011. Click here to view the first episode.
