  1. I would wait until you rack up a few miles then start modding. Gives the motor a chance to cycle through, and break in. Make sure to change oil and maintenance your machine according to manufacturer specs.
  2. Tires: I would suggest Highlifter Outlaw MST's, or Maxxis Zilla's. They have been favored by many people in extreme conditions. If your planning to run 27' or 28' tires I would suggest you look into some clutch work. You can run a green or a lime green secondary spring from EPI. Once you install your new secondary spring and properly shim your belt to 23-27mm you should be good to go. Here is a few threads if you wish to further explore clutching information: Secondary Clutch Springs - - View topic - Secondary Clutch Springs (Info) Primary Clutch Springs - - View topic - Primary Clutch Springs (Info) Clutch Spring Install - - View topic - Clutch Spring Install (With Pics) Wheels: Alluminum wheels will do fine on the trails. I've ran alluminum rims (ITP) in some extreme conditions and they hold up fine. There are tonnes of brands of rims out there. Pick a rim that suits your needs. I would recomend ITP SS312's 14x6's or in your case 14x8's for the extra width/stance. It's up to you. Snorkels: "I see that the airbox on the brute is where a normal wheelers gas cap would be, so that being said am I good to go with water as long as it doesnt go over that point os is it not sealed up to the box? Also how about the belt and it staying dry, do I need to do anything to ensure that it doesnt get soaked and leave me stranded." The air intake is located near the radiator area under the front rack (The airbox itself generally stays sealed). The belt intake and exhaust are close by. You will need to install snorkels if you wish to ride in deeper waters. Here is an article that shows you how to make Brute Force Snorkels for next to nothing.
