5. Fit fender flares for your big tires.
Many owners who drive off road and out in the wilderness during hunting trips, or as a utility vehicle for a landscaping company. Golf carts used in these situations will often encounter rugged terrain and muddy conditions requiring them to be fitted with a lift kit with custom wheels and off-road tires. The custom wheels and tires fitted for off-road use are often wider than standard offering increased grip on slippery surfaces.
These wide off-road tires may extend out from the standard cart body necessitating the fitment of fender flares. These flares cover up the portion of the cart tire that sticks out from the body, improving safety and preventing mud and water from spraying around when traveling off-road.
4. Install lighting for night time driving.
If a cart is to be used at night, perhaps as part of your business, or as personal transport on public roads or in your residential neighborhood then fitting a light kit is a necessity. For off-road night time use a headlight kit will be all that it required, but if it’s intended to be driven on the public roads then headlights, tail lights and turn signals may even be a legal requirement.
3. Cargo beds and extra seating.
The majority of standard carts are fitted with seating for two people, but many owners have the requirement to carry more people or cargo. These utility carts are usually found on commercial sites, in golf course maintenance, large industrial sites and airports.
Adding a flip seat will increase the passenger capacity and a cargo bed allows for the transport of additional cargo. Engine upgrades may have to be installed in order to develop more power to haul the additional passenger and cargo weight.
2. Custom paint job.
Most golf cart bodies are painted boring green or beige by the manufacturers at the factory. The easiest and on of the most eye-catching ways to modify standard body panels is to re-paint them. An almost infinite number of colors are available at the paint shop and will transform your ride and attract admiring looks from all.
