So, given the images I posted thus far…, am I looking at a stock 97 EZGO-TXT, 36V Non-DCS?

A few more images may help with your answer…

The Mule is my hunting buddy!! The plan is to install a lift kit on the ezgo, add some spacers, then install an old set of 22x10x11 wheels that came off this mule..., but I needs a few more amps on the ground first. So the 48V upgrade comes before the lift.

Question..., does a lift require new steering arm?

Yep, according to the pictures it is a standard series style cart. The lift you buy will determine what you have to replace. All of these components should be in the lift kit package.

Roady89...., u-da-man!

These are the tires that will eventually go on the cart..., but they wil definately need to be pushed out a few inches.

Now the question is..., switch to 48v, new soleniod, new charger and rework motor..., or will simply rewinding the motor provide an acceptable performance increase? I like the option of a tow/go switch too.

BTW, this cart is as we decided... stock. In its stock configuration I can pull a 12 foot trailer with my mule loaded. So motor is strong and batteries are good..., she's just too slow. Or..., maybe I'm just spoiled from zipping around on the mule.

After the ezgo is acceptably rolling..., it will belong to my wife. After cruising this site I think I've decided to get another "project" cart. That one I think will be a monster cart!

When adding larger tires you have to have an offset wheel. You would be money ahead to just buy another set of offset wheels than to purchase a set of good wheel spacers.

You can get an offset 10" steel wheel for $30 each. Wheel spacers are probly twice that at least.

No way! I thought the spacers would be much less than wheels.

All I want/need are some cheap alum/steel wheels with the hub pushed inside, and if these are less than spacers then that's the way to go.

Where can you get steel wheels locally for $30?

I don't know any place locally, just places on the net.


Here is a few different ones. These aren't the ones I bought but $120 a set is better than 2" wheel spacers. http://www.golfcarttirestore.com/w10_stl.htm

Not a bad price at all for 4 wheels, even if you add $50 for shipping.

Plans for this cart seem to be coming together..., thanks to all who have contributed.
