Default Using your G1 for Camping and Hunting

I want to get some idea's on mods for my G1 to make it more practical for hunting and camping or just cool offroad points. Mine has a lift with 22" tires and i am in the process of making the rear seat fold out to a utility bed. Please post pics

I really don't off-road much but you are going to need something to stop branches and brush from whacking you, almost like a windshield frame.

Install hitch mounts front and rear then mount a small winch that could be used front or rear. If your off road only then you could lock the differential for better traction

I want to put a top and windshield on it just not sure if i am going roll cage or just stock style yet. I have a receiver on the rear and will make one for the front when i build a new bumper. I have ordered the badlands atv winch from HF. it was on sale this weekend for $49.

Get one of the inserts plowmans sells or something for the flatbed when you fold the back seat down. The flat bed sucks and stuff flies off all the time. Putting a drop-in style box in it like a dump bed will do a much better job at keeping everything where you want it to be (in the cart, and not on the ground left behind)

The G1 body supports wouldn't handle much in a roll over nor would it be practical servicing the engine bay with a roll cage.

The windshield I used was from a club car ds 2000.5 and up. I cut the frame just below the curve for the ds roof mount and cut the rear support in the same way then welded the two together then finished it with a ds split windshield. I added a skid plate for the rear diff after smacking a rock and will do a write up on it. I built this cart for offroad use and it has been a fun build and more fun driving it.

I like how your cart looks with the top and windshield. Was the top from a ds also? Are you in the california desert? just asking because i've been asking about taking this to Ocotillo wells and can't get a straight answer on if it would be legal there since they get their funding from OHV registration.

The top was on it as well as the cargo box when I bought it. The year DS the frame came off has a different type of top with molded in attachment points ect. Im going to guess and say they are older roof supports as you see this style on older carts. Kind of looks like the Flintstones roof. Im in Nevada outside Las Vegas. I would assume that when a cart gets lifted and offroad tires added it needs to be registered as an OHV. I flat out refuse and register none of my bikes or this buggy for my own reasons. You should not follow my actions on this.
