HELLFIRE FRONT GRILL
Assault Industries is known for front
grills and side-view mirrors. We went
with the Hellfire grill ($119.99) with
white powdercoat to enhance the look
and to get rid of the stock plastic grill.
It took only 10 minutes to mount and
gave our X3 a more aggressive look.
The $299.99 Sidewinder convex side-view mirrors are new from Assault
Industries. They’re made from 6061-T6
billet aluminum, have a wide field of
view, a breakaway design, are completely rebuildable and they adjust
easily on the fly. With many colors to
choose from, we opted for the blue to
add more color to our Triple Black X3.
Again, installation was quick and easy,
taking only 15 minutes from start to finish. When in the car, it’s mind-blowing
how much you can see directly behind
the car. They were a great match to
the OEM rear-view mirror from Can-Am, especially when you’re strapped in
tight to the seat.
BARREL STYLE HEAVY-DUTY
With some hard driving, we ended
up bending one of the OEM radius
rods. Luckily, Assault had us covered
with their gnarly Barrel Style heavy-duty aluminum radius rod kit for $659.99.
The kit comes with all six of the 6061-
T6 aluminum heavy-duty rods and all
of the necessary hardware. There was
no comparison between the Assault
rods and the OEM rods; the Assaults
are massive, and it would take a kick
from a bull to dent one.
Assault Barrel Style radius rods were a
welcomed edition to the car after one
of the stock rods got bent. The F- 22
rear bumper has amazing coverage for
the entire rear of the car.
The endlessly adjustable Sidewinder
convex mirror’s huge field of view
makes seeing behind the car extremely
easy. The changeable outside bezels are
available in multiple colors.
The doors are probably our favorite pieces. They mount to the stock door frames, and
within minutes we had a full aluminum door that will keep us safe for miles to come.
Installing radius rods on any
machine isn’t a simple task, but
Assault provided great instructions
that showed us step by step the
correct way to mount them. We
suggest reading the instructions
beforehand, as it took us less time
going that route. Once we aligned
them all and our rear tires were
lined up properly, we took out the
X3 for a test. It handled as well as
the first day we drove it.
WE FELT ASSAULTED,
IN A GOOD WAY!
The great thing is, all of these parts will fit
any Can-Am X3 model that is currently produced, and Assault has radius rod kits that
will fit the 72-inch X rs model as well. We’re
always impressed with the quality and
attention to detail the guys over at Assault
Industries offer. Not only did we feel safer,
but the Assault parts helped give the X3 a
more fighter-jet look. Winning in all aspects
with these parts and loving it all. ❏
