Yamaha Rhino GI Kit **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: Unusual

UPDATE: The website for Tippman is down. I can only assume that these kits did not sell well enough and the company went out of business.

I know what you are thinking … how can I turn my boring Yamaha Rhino into a flat fender looking offroad vehicle?  I’m sure this has kept you up at nights?  Well, you need not lose any more sleep, as Tippman Design has developed exactly the package you need.  It’s like a VEEP for the ATV crowd.

According to the Tippman design website, “the first of our products [is] the GI Kit for the Yamaha Rhino 660 and 450 with the ability to be installed on all Rhinos built prior to 2009. We are working on the fitting of the new 2009 Rhino design. The club car GI Kit is on the drawing board as well, production date to be announced.”

The base price for the package is $2200 plus shipping.

Here’s a standard Yamaha Rhino (Ok, I think this is standard; I don’t really know)

And here’s a Rhino with the Tippman GI Kit installed.

    Cool … But jeeps have a 7 slot grill … This is why your kit looks a little odd! Definitely cool though

    Matt,

    Most jeeps have a 7 slot grille. MBs/GPWs have the nine slot grille. Even more important, there’s a trademark on the 7 slot grille on vehicles (which probably covers the Rhino), but not on the nine slot grille (due in part to the find between Ford and Willys). So, for a military jeep themed Rhino, having a nine slot grille is correct.

    Thanks,

    – Dave

    Hi Robert,

    It looks like these are no longer for sale. I can only assume that these kits did not sell well enough and the company went out of business.
