What’s included

If you do decide to go with Pete’s Golf Cart Top Lowering Kit they include easy to follow how-to directions and all required hardware (nuts, bolts, washers).

Easy to follow

Pete got a member of his office staff to try the kit – here’s what they said:

“We actually installed one the other day so I had a better idea of how all this was going to work. Seemed very straight forward and the job was complete in a little over an hour with my novice assistance. Coming from a computer guy and not a gear head like Pete I think I could do the job should the time arise. Though being I do not even own a golf cart it probably wont happen soon. I would love to have one especially some of the golf carts Pete has around the shop. Just awesome – heck they do not even look like a golf cart anymore. More like a little car or truck.”

  1. Hi Pete’s Golf Carts, I’ve been trying to buy your roof lowering kit, and I see you are out of stock. When might you have more of them in stock? I don’t like the looks of the DIY one in this video. I prefer the looks of the one you all sell…

  2. When will you have the lowering roof brackets in for a 2018 ezgo txt?

    1. Thank you for your inquiry. Hopefully early next year. 2021
