Which Golf Cart We Are Working On This Season?

It's none other than a 36V E-Z-GO TXT (2006) .

How We Found It: Research and Purchase

We started our search in a few places, namely dealerships and auction sites (which we’ve used in the past), but neither were not as successful this time around. So we tried private sellers on the Facebook marketplace, where we found some great options. We wound up buying a mechanic service E-Z-GO TXT that has been around since 2006 on a cool little golf course. It was just waiting for some modifications to become one of our favorite toys!

Quick Tip 1

Be prepared to pay a bit more if you are in the market for a project cart. If you're looking to sell your cart, now is a good time. You can get a good idea of what it is going for in your area by researching other listings in your area for similar golf carts.

What's the First Step?

The first step in the process is checking the stats of your cart before any custom work begins so that you can make sure everything will be done properly. We took height and speed measurements to determine what kind of performance we can expect after the customization is done.

Height measurement - 66.5"

Top Speed (with a phone app) - 13 miles per hour

Quick Tip 2

Document everything. It's a great way to know what your cart has and what the result will look like. It makes perfect sense!

Quick Tip 3

Make sure to take some photos of the wiring before you take it apart, as these pictures will help you remember where everything goes and allow you to be able to put the wiring back together properly.

What If You Don't Own an E-Z-GO TXT?

This series has something for everyone, so don't worry, even if you don't own an E-Z-GO TXT. We'll be featuring wheels, nerf bars, seats, and much more that all have cross-model compatibility.

Do You Remember Our EGCM Season 1?

You all loved the first season of our Extreme Golf Cart Makeover. That's why we're here with another season! In Season 1, with the help of our golf cart experts (Dave and Nick), we transformed an old, used Yamaha G29 gas golf cart into something that is not only aesthetically pleasing but also amazingly functional. The transformation journey – from research to purchase to installation – was a fantastic process with amazing prizes all the way through.

Check out a quick flashback of Season 1!
