    Hello, I'm -Bear-

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Bear. We just bought our first SXS. It's a brand new Pioneer 1000-5 deluxe. We (family) currently live in Box Elder SD right at the feet of the Black Hills and just down the road from the Badlands. We are born and raised in the heel of Louisiana. I am retired military and South Dakota was my last assignment before retiring.

    I wanted a tractor but the family wanted a toy, so I bought a SXS with the cab, winch, plow, heater, ect. cause I don't want to move snow manually anymore! The dealership did not have all the pieces so I am waiting for some thing to come in. We also have some acreage that will make it easier to do the chores. True be told, I have wanted one for a while now but just did not want to spent the money. So far we love it and I think the bug has officially bit me. I am starting to add all the accessories (radio, rocker switch panel, dual batteries ect.). I love DIY very much. I do design, CAD/CAM programming, manufacturing and fabrication for a living. I look forward to seeing others ideas and sharing mine with everyone.

    Thanks everyone, I will keep posted on all upgrades. Today I just finished programming a rocker switch panel blank to replace the Safety placard below the differential lock lever. I cut out a test piece on my laser cutter and it lines up perfectly. If anyone want dimensions, drawing, DXF, DWG, STL or solid model. I did Solidworks in both metric and inch so I can add switches and accessories as I buy them.
