I'll submit the wife's 420.
Started off as a completely trashed 2009 420AT. I bought it cheap. It ran but smoked and knocked (sunk), had been spray painted white, no wheels, tires or front bumper. Had 4500 miles showing on the odometer. Wife wanted an automatic so I picked it up for her.
I went through the motor, putting in a new crank, a new OEM Foreman 500 top end, new timing chain, and new seals throughout. I also added secondary gears for a footshift 420, which gave it around an 18% reduction. The GR required a shift module from Rapid Revolutions to keep it shifting properly in auto mode. I also added a Wiseco fuel programmer to bump up the fuel a little for the added CC's of the Foreman top end.
Added a Warn winch with synthetic cable, 26" skinny/wide Mudbugs on factory Rincon wheels, Symtec dual zone heated grips, a Hondaline front bumper, LED lightbar (wired to high beams), and modded in an 05-14 Foreman pod light with HID bulb and added an accessory/ cig lighter plug where the D1/D2/ESP knob normally goes on a Rubicon.
It will pop a wheelie from a dead stop, and most importantly, the wife likes it.
