Default New to Precedent model, Customizing caveats?

As a side job, my friend and I build custom carts for residents in a local upscale subdivision with hilly terrain.

We have done mostly RXV's and by trial and error, we have discovered the best practices and what to watch for on the RXV's. However, our source for reasonably priced RXV cores is dwindling and generally our buyers want something more solid than a txt.

However, I have an opportunity to get a good deal on Precedents, but have never done one and will have to buy min of 10 (2015 models). I am looking for pointers and "what to look out for" when swapping bodies, adding lights, seat kits, lifts, etc to CC precedent.

How will the precedent compare in power and ride to the RXV?

Looks like light kits are easier/faster install than RXV?

New bodies are cheaper for precedent. Would you say precedent bodies are easier, harder, or about the same as installing on RXV?

What about lift kits and rear seats?

Any pointers or advice would be appreciated and anything else I need to know before buying 10 2015 models

While I cannot compare it to an RXV I will say this. My precedent was the first cart I have modified and it's crazy easy. When I got mine home I had it stripped completely down in about an hour.

Light kit is easy but if your carts don't have it you will have to wire in the bucket harness and a converter. Not difficult at all. I did mine in just over 2 hours and doing it again I could probably do it in just over an hour.

As I mentioned the body is very easy. The front is off in about a minute minus willing around the windshield if that is still on. The rear is easy as well, just have to move the seats out of the way first. You can even take it off with the top still on.

Lift kits and rear seats are again really easy. I spent more time assembling my rear seat kit than I did installing it to the cart. The lift kit is quick as well but it you are looking to flip the carts, and are refurbishing the front plastics, take that off to give you more room to work. It's not bad at all but you can go even faster. Same with wiring. Rear is completely straight forward. The only gotcha is the rear brake cable. replace it with the longer one but use a 13mm 8-point socket to remove it from the mounts. You'll understand when looking at it. I just cut the cable on the old one so I don't have to readjust the brakes if they are good.

Have fun and good luck. Here's how mine turned out.

Precedents are easier than the other club car models. Be careful with the brakes. See the pinned post above on brakes. Also note that the ERIC chargers are different than the OBC models with the power drive chargers. You’ll learn and pick up on the individual hiccups you run into and how to avoid them. They are a very easy mod.

Hook them up with an Alltrax. Without question the single best mod that you can do from a performance perspective. Ascetics are subjective as Iím sure you are already aware.

I like the Precedents because of all the things available and ease to upgrade or modify. Here is mine from green golf course to a monster beach limo.

Where'd you source that body? It's beautiful.
