With nearly 1000 cubic centimeters of displacement in it’s 4-stroke, twin cylinder, DOHC engine, a stock ground clearance of 13 inches, and a payload capacity of 1,500 pounds, the 2019 edition of the Polaris Ranger XP 1000 is a force to be reckoned with. It is a versatile machine that, like most side-by-sides, has both pros and cons for domain-specific applications. With a few aftermarket modifications, however, the 2019 Polaris Ranger XP 1000 and it’s larger crew cousin can tackle whatever terrain you may encounter.Continue reading →
As much as we here at Everything Polaris Ranger would like to provide you with a simple solution for Polaris Ranger tires, unfortunately, there is no magical one-size-fits-all UTV tire that is perfect in every way and in every situation. An aftermarket Polaris Ranger tire that is perfect for mudding may perform worse that stock tires on sand. And to delve a bit deeper, even categories like sand and mud are slightly vague to say the least. The sand in some places can be fine and circular, while in other places it can be river sand, shaped more like small pea gravel and very thick / heavy. Similarly, mud is also a loaded variable. The depth of the mud, the viscosity of the mud, and the clay content of the mud can all affect the performance of a Polaris Ranger mudding tire. Mississippi river gumbo mud is not the same as mud you’ll find in other places. Despite this fact, we will do our best to parse through these issues and shed some light on what makes a good side-by-side tire. We will also discuss some of our go-to tire brands to optimize the performance of a Polaris Ranger.Continue reading →

There is no doubt that the 2019 Polaris Ranger XP 900 is leaps and bounds more advanced than the older models. It’s not uncommon to see a 2019 XP 900 Ranger outperform their RZR brethren. We at Everything Polaris Ranger have personally witnessed a 2019 XP 900 with a 3” lift, no sway bars, and 32” tires with 2” deep lugs leave an RZR 900 on 28’s in the dust on a windy paved road. However, top-end speeds are not the only performance metric. While the new edition of the Polaris Ranger XP 900 may have some giddy-up-and-go, when things get steep and tires get airborne, it’s hard -- if not impossible -- to find a utility side-by-side that will ride like a Razor. The Polaris general is about as close as you can come, but the bed space is limited to say the least. Continue reading →
Like most aftermarket UTV accessories and components, there is no broad Polaris Ranger windshield solution that works perfectly for all riders under all circumstances. Riding conditions vary, weather conditions vary, and people’s budgets vary, which is why there is such a great variety in aftermarket Polaris Ranger windshields. Idiosyncratic rider preferences also come into play. What one rider might find to be tolerable for the price, another rider might deem absolutely unacceptable. We’ll dig into a few of these points, and at the end, you’ll hopefully have a better idea of the type of Polaris Ranger windshield that will fit your personal needs. Continue reading →

If you’re a hunter, there is no better way to get to and from your best-hunting grounds than a Polaris Ranger. Their versatility makes them great for dirt roads, trails, dry river beds, and prairies, turning the most remote and isolated areas into surprisingly accessible hunting grounds. And when it comes to hauling out the good parts of a large ungulate or other game animals, a side-by-side can be a lifesaver. When you are hunting or sporting clays with a side-by-side, there are several Polaris Ranger accessories that are absolutely essential. A gun rack is one of these obligatory add-ons.Continue reading →

As 2018 winds to a close and the new year rapidly approaches, you might be asking yourself “Should I get a 2018 Polaris Ranger 570 Mid-Size Crew, or should I pop on the 2019 edition?”. Or perhaps, you’re questioning other Polaris Ranger models like the 900 or 1000 -- which do have more power, but also cost more. While you compare and contrast the price differences (which, at present, amount to around $3,000 between the 2018 and 2019 Polaris Ranger Mid-Size Crews) and performance specs, a quick look into the economics at play may also aid you in your decision making process.
Constant-velocity joints -- also known as homokinetic joints -- allow a vehicle to transfer power from the drive shaft to the axle under a wide range of angles and without adding unnecessary friction or movement.
Throughout the years, we’ve received countless phone calls, texts, and emails from people looking to repair, replace, or upgrade their Polaris Ranger axles. Some people were experiencing issues with the length and fitment of their aftermarket Polaris Ranger axles, while others were concerned about the strength and durability of the CV joints, boots, and other drive-train components.
