For our smaller rear passengers, we
installed DragonFire’s passenger grab
handles. They come in two different
versions—straight bar or angled. They
both feel good and make the kids feel
like they are driving.
Underneath the rear tire rack we are
using the Polaris cooler box. It’s super
thick and can keep items cold for days,
even in direct sun.
Our fifth tire was installed on the
Polaris swing-out rear tire rack. It easily
clamps onto the rear downtubes of the
We installed PRP seats in the front and
back in this RZR. They have strong side
bolsters and accept harness seat belts.
The rear seat is a full bench, so you can
have a bit more hip room or even add a
center passenger. PRP has a growing
list of unique UTV products. Call them
at (800) 317-6253.
UTVs are a great way to directly share
the ride with someone close to you.
The four-seat machines like this one
are sometimes even better. The RZR
XP 4 1000 gives the best ride of any
four-seater out there.
Extreme Metal Products set us up
with the Lexan half windshield, which
is another must-have UTV product. The
windshield directs cold or hot air over
the driver. We equipped our windshield
with Fast Straps, just in case we want
to take it off out on the trail.
Another item we picked out from
the Pure Polaris catalog was a GPS
unit. This $699 product has a full
5-inch display, easy-to-use buttons
(while going down a bumpy trail), a
built-in antenna, and mounts right
inside the center storage box found
only on the XP 1000. Furthermore, the
GPS unit tracks where you have been
and can be told where to guide you.
Installation was quick, thanks to
the Polaris 12-volt Bus Bar that allows
the easy installation of all sorts of
electronics. The number of features
on the GPS are so immense, we are
doing a full product evaluation of the
unit elsewhere in this issue. To top off
the list of Pure Polaris products, we
installed a $350, 12-inch, single-row,
LED light bar. We mounted it in front
of the hood, right above the radiator.
We aimed it a little higher than the
stock lights, which are also LEDs. This
way, when we get to some of the fast-
er dirt roads in Baja and SoCal, we
can hit 70 mph and not outdrive the
They are brighter and throw light
about 20 feet further than the stockers.
This light bar would work great by
itself too. The Polaris catalog has sin-
gle- and dual-row LED light bars from
5 inches wide all the way up to 33
inches, in case you need even more
light and want to mount it across the
roof. All Pure Polaris accessories can
be purchased at any Polaris dealer.
And as an added bonus, you can roll
them into your loan if you are going
the financing route for a new RZR.
PRP ROOF AND SEATS
We didn’t mount our light bar
on the roof for a couple of reasons.
Having lights in front of the driver’s
compartment helps you see better in
dusty or foggy conditions by reducing
glare. Plus, the lower you can mount
it, the better for the same dusty conditions. Also, we capped our roof with
a thick vinyl soft top from PRP. We
didn’t want to cut any extra holes in
the top to mount the light. PRP’s thick,
marine-grade vinyl simply stretches
over the stock roll cages and attaches
