What Would You Do With $1,000?

We ask the experts for suggestions

Published in the September 2013 Issue September 2013 Tyrell Marchant

If you read the last issue of Dirt Toys, you likely saw our story on what a couple of dealers recommended for adding to your ATV or side-by-side if you were to find yourself with an extra $1,000 in your bank account. In that issue, we detailed what a thousand bucks could do for a Polaris RZR and a Can-Am Commander.

For this issue, we focused on Arctic Cat and Honda.

Arctic Cat

Rim Country Powersports

Payson, AZ

Sean Kucewesky at Rim Country Powersports in Arizona helped us figure out the best way to spend $1,000 on an Arctic Cat vehicle. As we expected, Kucewesky told us that the Wildcat is far and away their most popular vehicle, so that’s the direction we went with our thousand bucks.

Each accessory in this package is manufactured or sold by Arctic Cat. Everything save the tires is an easy self- install, so there’s no extra labor cost.

Total package price: $1,036



This is an interesting one. The Big Red is being retired, replaced by the all-new Pioneer so it was somewhat useless to talk about any accessories for the Big Red. And the Pioneer is just now being manufactured so most dealers haven’t even got one on their showroom floor, let alone have any accessories for it. We, however, have seen—and driven—the Pioneer, so we’re going to take a stab at finding what accessories we’d like to have on the vehicle.

Like our Arctic Cat package, everything in our Honda package is made by the manufacturer and is a relatively easy self-install.

Total package price: $979.75
