Got my Can Am 2011 Commander 1000 XT back in October of 2010.

Over the almost 2 years of owning it I have made a number of small changes to it but for a number of reasons I have only been out handful of times and a total of just over 500 miles on it.

So I recently took my commander to Magnum Offroad to get a custom removable rear cage, roof, and front bumper made and also get the Magnum M4 Long Travel along with the shocks set up on my car.

And Magnum came through with just what I was looking for.

It is removable so I can just take off a few bolts and use the dump bed or add the rear cage and race hard knowing if I roll the cage will hold up much better than stock.

With the rear cage on I can open the lower tail gate enough to get the bed liner out or access the lower bed and open the upper tail gate all the way. This is just what I was looking for and I love it. Let me know what you think. If you don't care for that is cool too.

Also added new supports in the front.

Working on the front bumper now and then the roof.

After that it will be the Magnum M4 Long Travel with there Fox shocks. Hope to be done in a couple of weeks.

Looks a little wide in the back but I guess there is no getting around that for that level of protection. Gonna be awesome when its finished. I'd love to get some custom cage work done if my wallet would just agree with me.

Bryan. The last I remember you were installing the turnkey long travel. What happened?
All I can say is looking forward to taking my Commander out soon.

Very nice Bryan. Keep us posted. Just an FYI, the STI HD wheels are avalable in a beadlock for around $100.00 each. Thats the route I am going when i switch over to 14" wheels.

Bryan,

I'm interested in purchasing the Turnkey CX3 Kit and was concerned to see that you have moved on from this setup. This is a very large purchase for me, can you please offer any advice?

Thank you.

Maybe Bryan still has the CX3 kit and you can by it from him?

Some more pictures.










Here is how it looks now but skid plates will go on and thinking of adding a upper bar on the bumper and maybe some lights.



Here is a idea of what it may look like with smaller lights.

Dam that thing is looking good. I really like the lines of that thing, along with the way it has a built in rear bumper of sort. Keep the pics coming!


If it can't play, it can't stay!

Looking good. Side by Side has decent pricing on the 4" Kragen HID lights. 4 for around 300 bucks. They are really nice lights. I am running a pair of the 7" on my Woodsbuggy.

that looks great...i think i would have done away with the tail lights, made the cage narrower in the back- still allowing for the tailgate to open, then incorperated the tail lights into the cage...jmho
