The UTV aftermarket is huge, and a huge player in it is Moose Utility Division (M.U.D.). In the Moose catalog, enthusiasts can find more than 200 products listed for UTVs and ATVs. A sampling of the items M.U.D. offers are made specifically for the Yamaha Rhino UTV; many others are universal and are designed to fit most if not all UTVs. M.U.D. offers a huge selection of engine, electrical, suspension, CVT, tires, wheels, axle assemblies, brakes, trailer ramps, tie-downs, electronics carriers and more that are not included in this roundup.
