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 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.
