Raptor to UTV Conversion


This was an interesting conversion, taking a Yamaha Raptor ATV and turning it into a UTV. According to the article by Dirt Wheels Magazine, this was a kit that could be purchased, but apparently it is no longer available. A mini rally car skin was once available as well.

If nothing else, it provides some great photos that could help someone interesting in doing their own custom fabrication conversion. If you have the right tools and ability, this could certainly be a cheaper entry into UTV ownership. Albeit on a slightly smaller scale.

If a single seater is all you’re looking for, starting with an ATV rolling chassis could save quite a bit of fabrication work.


Kevin has been involved in the custom automotive scene since he bought his first mini-truck in high school and began modifying it. He also has interest in sustainability, DIY projects, and various forms of fabrication. Seeing improved technology of batteries, he has made a concentrated effort over the last few years to transition away from fossil fuels. From lawn care to automotive.
