Golf cart rear flip seat kits are extremely popular accessories, because they not only increase your golf carts seating capacity, but also allow you to quickly flip the rear seats down for hauling cargo. Flip rear seats come in a variety of colors and styles. A lot of our customers also opt to add a safety grab bar to their rear seats giving their backseat passengers something to grab onto when driving on the course or in the neighborhood.


Installation Difficulty: Moderate to Difficult

Cost: $250-$500


Wheels & Tires:

Hands down one of the most popular additions to any golf cart is a new set of wheels and tires. Many golf carts come with very plain 8-inch wheels and basic tires. Aftermarket wheels generally come in 10, 12 or 14 inches. You can install both 10-inch and 12-inch wheels coupled with low profile tires on most carts without any modifications. However, 14” inch wheels with all terrain tires typically require a lift to avoid wheel rub.


Installation Difficulty: Easy

Cost: $500-$800


Lift Kits:

One of the most common accessories for golf carts are lift kits. Most golf cart lift kits provide 3 to 6 inches of lift. There are also multiple types of lift kits including drop axle, a-arm, spindle and long travel. Typically, a-arm, drop axle and spindle lift kits are your best bet and provide a lot of bang for the buck. It’s also important to note that a lift kit alone will generally not increase your carts clearance. However, lift kits require you to install larger wheels and tires on your golf cart which increase your carts clearance and in many instances, improve your carts speed.


Installation Difficulty: Moderate to Difficult

Cost: $225-$800


Windshields:

Sport windshields are a great way to give your cart a unique look too. High impact windshields are also a popular choice as they are less prone to chip or crack when driving on unpaved roadways.


Installation Difficulty: Moderate

Cost: $80-$200


Mirrors:

The first are your general side view mirrors, these are just like the mirrors you would find on your car. The second type is a rear-view mirror. While many of these are just like the rear-view mirrors found in automobiles, some include multiple mirrors frequently called panel or wink style mirrors providing you with a much broader panoramic view.
