Picked this up cheap last fall. Sitting in a field for 8+ years. Started on it last month. Cleaned, rebuilt if needed, and a fresh coat of paint. This will be the 4th sportsman of this body style i have restored. One 335 and the rest were 500’s. I have found on this 6x6 that parts are not that common. With a lot of comparisons, i have also found that Polaris used their brains and built this almost entirely from sportsman/trailblazer/xplorer/scrambler parts. The middle axle and swing arm are from a trailblazer (or other chain drive from that era). The rear axle swing arm is unique, but the chain tensioner is the same as the middle axle which is xplorer/trailblazer as well. Front end is all sportsman/xplorer. I have the service manual for this as well if anyone has questions. This is what it looked like the day i picked it up after a trip to the car wash. Came with all the plastics. Much much more to come.
