I think Tuesday I might be able to pick up my new Pioneer 4 (red). I will check the fluids but what else should I double check before running it?

When you take delivery, look at entire machine. The rear receiver area has been know to be thin on finish. Roll bars, including mine have had big chunks out of the coating. Make sure everything meets your satisfaction.

If you want to double check everything after you take delivery. Oil is a great place. Tire pressures, brake function. All good things to check before your first ride.

Only if they install the Universal A arm guards Skorp. I only know of a few brake issues not related to those guards clearance with the caliper and or plastic cover.

i haven't had any issues with the plastic guards but i also bled my brakes the first day i had it. so that eliminated the air possibility

I would get a small can of fluid film and spray it in the frame tubes next to the hitch.

Other than that fill it up and ride the heck out of it.

I had to google "fluid film" to find out it is a rust preventative. I have never heard of that one.

I saw someone post that their hose clamps were loose on the cooling system. Might want to check that. Should be easy...the clamp will be sunk into the hose a bit if tight.

Also, my glovebox door was nowhere near fitting right. Warped as ****! Waiting for the dealer to warranty it.

Yeah it is good stuff.

On the forums for my truck some of the guys get the kit and spray the whole underside of the truck before winter.

And it smells good :D
