CASH BRED OFF-ROAD

Weekend warriors are getting their fair share of attention from the customizing world and Cash Bred Off-Road out of Converse, TX is on a mission to showcase their talents to the UTV scene with their highly customized Polaris General.

“We developed the build with John ‘Dos’ Orr of Orr Motorsports to show our ability to branch out from trucks and help highlight Orr Motorsports,” mentions Brandon Edwards, owner of Cash Bred Off-Road.

“Dos wanted to come out big this year, to draw attention to his new venture Orr Motorsports. He asked us to get things going and we set out to make it happen.” Since the General is one of the newest models from Polaris, the build isn’t as common as the rest of the company’s lineup, which is why it was the perfect base vehicle for the collab build.

Right from the start, both shops decided to go big, bright and bold in order to get everyone’s attention. “You weren’t going to miss this build from 100 yards away, so we sent our brainstorming to KEG Media and they focused our ideas into a solid vision. After we had the visual aids from KEG we set into it hard. I don’t like to deviate from an approved rendering too much but we added a few details that really stand out in person,” Edwards explains.

Calling it “Thumper,” the General is a serious show piece with its graphics, custom powder coating and chrome Specialty Forged wheels. But shortly after SEMA it was baptized in mud – a testament that it’s not just for show. “The Cash Bred Off-Road cage was built specifically for Thumper; there are no others like it. Our friends at Specialty Forged Wheels cut us one-of-a-kind 22x10 wheels. The entire General was blown apart down to the frame and powder coated by Tough Country and NB Powdercoating. We combined the Pushing Limits Motorsports 10” lift and Super ATV 4” portals for a total of 14 inches of lift. Audio Source in New Braunfels, TX installed the stereo and Rockford Fosgate components and gave us incredible sound quality. They also wrapped the plastics in a custom black and white wrap to set it off against the green powder coating. Heretic Studio provided us with incredible headlights and a matching steering wheel that combined with the PRP seats keep the driver and passengers in total control,” Edwards mentions.

“Everything came together better than we could imagine,” he details. “We are still excited about it.” Before Thumper, Cash Bred Off-Road had never built anything for a UTV prior, but they dedicated themselves to learning everything they could to create a build that would be the talk of the show when it was showcased at the 2016 SEMA Show. “Deadlines leading up to SEMA were tough but my guys at Cash Bred Off-Road and our buddies at Orr Motorsports are some of the best in our industry and absolutely killed it. Thumper is driven hard by Dos and used as Orr Motorsports mechanical brand ambassador,” he says.

Although Thumper is Cash Bred Off-Road’s masterpiece, once they got their feet wet with UTVs, they’ve continued creating badass weekend toys and also aided in organizing a Polaris Ranger “High Limit” that was put together to promote a local dealership, Woods Cycle Country. It features a total of 16” of lift, 22x10 Specialty Forged wheels, classic pearl and polished theme and a complete Wet Sounds audio package.

“We’ve set our personal bar high with the Thumper build, so we’ll have to do a lot of work to top it in the future,” he says.
