Teixeira Tech is proud to unveil our new X-Treme Ground Clearance A-Arms and Radius Rods for the Polaris RZR and RZR 4, XP 1000.

We spent over two years developing our XGC A-Arms and Radius Rods for the RZR 900 and throughout the past nine months we’ve remained busy developing and rigorously testing XGC components for the new RZR 1000.
We construct our chassis parts with TIG welded 4130 chromoly in precision built jigs. With the shock mounting points in the same location as stock, there’s no need to spend thousands of dollars modifying or replacing them.
