This month it's back to Rigid Industries in Mesa, Arizona, to see how the '08 Yamaha Rhino 700 is progressing for the giveaway. They've done up the suspension plus engine and drivetrain mods, so it's time to add some occupant safety to the build list. And we're getting a step closer to giving this toy away to some lucky reader of our UTV-specific mini-mag SideBySource. In each issue we're detailing a piece of the build up and you can go to Rigid's website ( to fill out an online entry form. The winner will be drawn at random at Off-Road Magazine headquarters on September 10, 2009. Limit one entry per household address.

Now that this Yamaha is built to go faster and handle the trails much smoother, it was time to turn attention to upgrading the comfort and safety of driver and passenger. You may have noticed in past issues we threw in a little tease photo of a cage install. Well, this month it's on with a Rigid Industries Radius Cage, followed by a cooler rack, and an overhead soft top to keep occupants in the shade on those hot, sunnier days.

Next month, we'll be adding some nice PRP suspension seats, and moving on to lighting upgrades heck back then and don't forget to enter to win the Rigid Industries built Yamaha Rhino!
