Personalizing Your ATV

These days, we all seem to be pressured to conform into the mold the society has determined for us. We are known by a number given to us at birth that follows us throughout our entire lives. Maybe it’s because of this that we are drawn to express our own styles whenever we can. We want something that yells, “this is me,” and that makes us stand apart from the crowd. One way we can do this is through customizing our ATV. There are many ways to do this.

For a long time now, customizing cars has been a popular thing to do. Today, those car owners are no longer the only ones wanting to make a personal statement. With shows like “Pimp My Ride” and “American Chopper,” customizing your vehicle is more popular than ever.

Because of this demand, ATV owners are now able to spruce up their rides too. The appreciation of these vehicles that are usually associated with farming and hunting is taking off as people are dreaming up ways to make their ATV more unique. Through this, each ATV reflects the style and taste of the owner and becomes a signature piece.

The trend of personalizing an ATV was first started by celebrities but has become a lot more mainstream per a leading ATV manufacturer, Polaris. The fad is mostly seen in areas of the Southwest, in states like Arizona and California.

There are many ways to customize your ATV, but here are a few of the more popular ways:

  • Add flames. This has been popular since the fifties when hot rods that represented speed were decorated with scorching flames. This is still the most popular design available today.
  • Add components made of chrome. If you like to sparkle and shine, chrome is a great addition. It is also seen as a sign of status to have a lot of chrome on your ATV.
  • Make your rims color-keyed. Choose a color that suits your style. You can use basic neutrals, strong earth tones, or bright primaries to decorate your rims.
  • Install a sound system. You can put in in the roof or in the bed. This will make any music you play sound better. Being able to listen to your choice of music is great when you are camping and don’t have your typical comforts.


  • There are many other ways you can customize your ATV. Look around online for other options to find what fits your personality best.
