Favorite UTV from the Dealer Expo
Our favorite UTV from the show was theArctic Cat Wildcat in the DragonFire Racing booth. DragonFire has been working overtime to get this cat ready for the show with all sorts of cool new parts and accessories. This Wildcat has 14″ DFR beadlocks with ITP BajaCross tires, DFR bolt-on RacePace cage add-ons (Flying V cage support, tire carrier and head ache bars), DFR LED light bar, plus their new dual exhaust. The new exhaust was created by Vance & Hines in collaboration with the DragonFire and debuted at the show over the weekend.
