is mounted with a hinge system so
you can flip the windshield down and
bolt it down onto the hood if you don’t
need it up.
Tusk offers a mirror kit that easily
bolts onto the roll cage. It is adjustable
so you can get the right angle with
ease. Tusk makes a strap-on LED cab
light that we mounted up to our RZR.
It is easy to mount and provides a lot
of light to help you see what you are
doing at night. That is a surprisingly
huge help, since most UTVs do not
have lighted switches or controls.
Most sport UTVs don’t provide
enough storage aside from a tiny
glovebox, which simply isn’t enough
space. Tusk has a cab pack that
has a large zipper pocket, a smaller
zipper pocket and another pocket that
utilizes a pull-tie to keep it closed. It
takes little time to install and provides
enough space to pack tools, a tire plug
kit and more.
The older ModQuad doors we used for
this build were still in great condition,
so we reused them. They look good and
The Desertcraft CVT Blaster II lowers
belt temperatures up to 40 degrees. We
tested this product last year and were
very pleased with it.
The Tusk cab bag holds enough tools
to change the belt on your machine,
hold a mini compressor and a plug
kit, and more.
We went to Assault Industries to get
more storage with their Hydration door
bags that either mount to the stock
doors or can be fastened to aftermarket
doors with hook-and-loop material. The
Hydration door bags were installed on
some ModQuad doors that we pirated
from a previous project. The doors provide protection from trail debris.
Assault sells a quick-release fire
extinguisher kit that we mounted up to
the roll cage. The kit gives you great
peace of mind and protection from the
possibility of a machine fire. Polaris
teamed up with PCI Race Radios and
have a Comlink RTX VHF radio system
that provides communication between
the driver and passengers, as well as
other machines with com systems.
And last, the only handling improvement we felt this machine really
needed was new tires and beadlock
wheels. We chose to go with STI’s
HD5 beadlock wheel that allow you to
choose between multiple colors for the
beadlock rings. We went with a black
inner wheel with red beadlock rings.
Mounted onto the HD5 wheels are
eight-ply Roctane XS tires.
TESTING THE PRODUCTS
The Tusk front bumper and rear roll-cage extension/bumper are well made
and durable. The ability to hold a spare
tire is a major plus, but you will need
to carry tools and a jack to change
the tire. The fabric roof provides the
Safety is important, so we carry a fire
extinguisher with us on our rides, and
Assault’s quick-release extinguisher kit
is a perfect purchase.
The Tusk skid plate kit we installed made
us feel the machine was far more protected
when driving over rocks and trail debris.
