I should be able to get one of mine tomorrow.

5" lift with drop axle; heavy duty rear springs; new shocks front and rear; front and rear baskets; bow rack; new batteries, new controller, new 4 gauge wires; and new high torque "Beast" motor.

I just added a brush guard and a winch to my TXT EZGO. I am going to add 4 guage wires next to help with the torque. Mine is also fully rhino lined and is a stealth machine.

That looks good Foo. What do you think of the new motor? Is that made by GE? Which controller did you go with?

It is the GE motor and a 400 amp controller but I'm not sure of that brand. The motor has been great, lots of torque but not as fast. Do you have a cart or looking to get one?

I'm currently modifying an EZGO TXT. I've painted it, built a front bumper, rear bumper, a gun rack, rear rack, and installed new batteries, 4 guage wire, and heavier rear springs. I'm looking to lift it and eventually add more power with a motor and controller

turbo, a good resource for upgrades and ideas for golf carts is www.buggiesunlimited.com. There is a wealth of knowledge in their forum. I know it helped me tons!!!

This is a 94 EZGo I chopped up a couple of years ago. It is gas powered and has served me great. It was pretty rusted in places due to being used to carry fertilizer on a golf course. Hence, all the extra welding and steel. I agree, Buggies Unlimited is your best bet for resources, etc.

Heres a pic of my Deer Cart

1996 EZGO with a 3" lift kit and 22" tires, replaced the floor in the bed due to golf course fertilizer rusting it out.

Here are some pics of mine after I fixed it up a little. http://discussions.texasbowhunter.com/forums/showthread.php?t=53432
The batteries would last all day.

how much are yall paying for these used carts and then how much are yall putting into it?

i already have a polaris ranger which does everything i need and then some, but if i could get one of these for pretty cheap it would be a fun thing to **** around with

Mine was 5 yrs. old when I got it and i paid $1500 in good shape. The batteries are expensive. By the time I replaced batteries and fixed up, I had another $1500 in it. It can get even more costly quick if you upgrade motor, controller, lift, tires, etc.

Mine's a 2002.5 Ezgo I bought 4 years ago for $1900. You can see from my list in my earlier post what I've done to it. I have had to change batteries again so now I may have close to $4,500 into it.

I have an 04 TXT that is 36v. Considering up'ing to 48V, what does the conversion cost? I assume I'll need motor, controller, batteries and charger right?

Foo_Dog

Depends on what you already have. My controller and motor can be either 36 or 48v. I guess you'll need a new charger, additional cables, and two more batteries, and maybe a solenoid. Here is where i get most of my parts: http://www.buggiesunlimited.com/

x2 on the BU guys. Very helpful. The biggest advantage of the electrics over gas carts is the sound and smell.

I just bought mine for $1000.00. It is a little rough around the edges but it can fixed up just fine. It has a lift and big tires.

I can post pics yet because I need 5 posts to be able to post pics.
