GEISER PERFORMANCE BASE MODEL UPGRADE

We recently took a stock base model X3 turbo and built it into a fully-equipped X3 X rs Turbo. We were stoked about how much money we saved on this build that we wanted to share it with our UTV family. Please don’t quote us on these prices. This is a rough estimate gauging from what we’ve seen and what we’ve spent.

We started with a 2-seat base model X3.  The silver and green-yellow color scheme (or white and black, much better) 120 HP, 64” wide X3 Turbo. Our end goal was to build this into an XRS model – 172 HP, 72” wide, with 2.5 and 3.0 RC2s front and rear. 

The base model is about $20,000 MSRP out-the-door. For an XRS you’re looking at about $27,500.

There are two routes you can go with the upgrade. You can go stock base model to stock XRS and save the money up front. You could also upgrade everything rather than changing to stock. This way is going to cost a little more up front, but you’re saving money in the long run and getting all of the best right off the bat.

FROM STOCK TO STOCK 

 FOX RC2 with Internal Bypass Shock (2.5 fronts / 3.0 rears)

$1500-$2500

XRS Stock Arms

$500-$800

Stock XRS Axles

$260 each

EVO 120HP Upgrade - Tune, Charge Tube, BOV

Like anything, you can find most of the things you need from someone on Facebook, Craigslist, etc. People are buying aftermarket suspension all day long and will often put their take-offs up for a decent price.

Depending on the deals you strike, you’re going to spend between $4,500 and $6,000 – meaning you’ll save between $1500 and $3000.

You can also make some money trading out or selling the take-offs from your base model.
