    FWIW - a street legal Roxor in MT. Has windshield mostly - not sure the hubs actually matter but you can swap in selectable hubs if you like:


    Some more video - of them driving on the streets. Very exciting:rolleyes: but can see some of the jeep parts and pieces...

    They are driving them out here for sure. The roxor dealer salesman, in Missoula, said he took one from missoula to Helena on the highway, he just disconnected the speedo to bypass the 45mph thing. If I didn’t already own three jeeps I’d be all over this thing, maybe when I’m older and retired :rofl:

    They can be re-flashed so the speedo works at any speed also. There is a huge buzz out there over these things.

    Well they sure sound good--good "engine presence" as they say.

    Hope they keep making them the same way year after year, little or no cosmetic or mechanical changes.
    What's the wheelbase length on these by the way?

    Here's one with a windshield and top-mounted wipers....
    :drool;

    I guess it's owner's choice for the location of the front turn signals since there are none. You could certainly get creative.

    By me, if your road has a name or letter, you can drive a UTV on it. People drive UTVs to work and around town. You just have to cross the state highways, not go along them, unless they are marked for UTV use.

    I don't know cuz my roads are 55MPH. After the tune, it's silky smooth at 70MPH. Also.. it's 40 degrees here right now lol.

    For my money Id prefer an Oreion Reeper. Its more of a street legal utv but look alot more fun that the Roxor

    I noticed that they were beginning to show up in my area. Price is reasonable for what you get.

    Finally got my regular WI plates and regular insurance. Zero shadiness. No VIN swapping or any possible legal mess later. Full street legal.

    Long process but it plodded along.

    It seems that these Roxor are lighter than my Jeep. The steel parts seem very thin comparing to what we have.

    It's heavier then a early CJ5 by about 700 lbs. The tub is definitely heavier duty as is the frame. Overall it's about CJ7 sized.
