  • Proper Winching Techniques For The Polaris Ranger

    When it comes to operating a Polaris Ranger winch, a little experience will go a long way. And even if you’re new to the Off-Road scene, you can still exercise proper winching techniques when you’re involved in any kind of recovery operation. Although many riders think they know how to use Polaris Ranger winches, it is difficult for someone to learn what they think they already know. So regardless of whether you’re an experienced winch user or a first-time winch owner, the tips and tricks outlined below are sure to assist you with all of your recovery jobs and winch-related endeavors. Pull smarter not harder by following these basic rules for proper winching using the Polaris Ranger!

    The Importance Of Polaris Ranger Snatch Blocks

    There’s no doubt that the power rating of your Polaris Ranger winch is important. However, there’s more to winching than raw pulling power alone. You definitely don’t want to overstrain your winch, but toting around a monster UTV winch all day every day isn’t required either. Ask anyone who has served in the military and they’ll explain how they were trained to use a snatch block whenever possible to recover stuck vehicles.

    The mechanical advantage of a Polaris Ranger snatch block effectively doubles the pulling power of your winch. Not only do they amplify the strength of your winch, but snatch blocks can also be used to run double-line and triple-line rigging. Depending on the distance between your side-by-side and the anchor point, doubling or tripling your winch line can help you increase the power of your winch (because a winch’s power output decreases with every wrap the line makes around the drum).

    Things like soft shackle pulleys are good for changing the direction of your winch rigging, however such accessories are not the same snatch blocks. They can help you maintain a 90-degree angle when winching, which ensures that the winch line is spooled properly onto the drum, but they also place unnecessary friction on your winch gear.

    Many winch accessory kits for the Polaris Ranger, the Ranger Full-Size, and the Ranger Crew include pulleys and snatch blocks. But companies like Custom Splice, ARB, Warn, TGL, and Smittybilt also make standalone UTV snatch blocks for the Polaris Ranger lineup.

    Choosing The Right Polaris Ranger Winch Line

    Both synthetic rope winch lines and steel cable winch lines have their strengths and weaknesses. But even though neither winch line material is superior in all aspects, there are situations where one style of winch line works better than the other.

    The abrasion resistance of synthetic winch ropes, for example, is something to consider. You should always use tow straps or tree savers when winching with a synthetic winch line, while also making sure that the rope isn’t rubbing against anything on its way back to the winch. And although you shouldn’t loop any winch line, synthetic or otherwise, around rocks, trees, or other objects, cable winch lines will hold up better in situations where this is unavoidable. 

    Because synthetic lines are more dynamic than steel wire lines, they are able to ease in and out of tension, which can mitigate load stresses in some scenarios. But whichever winch line material you feel more comfortable with, maintenance should never be overlooked. Keeping your winch lines clean, dry, and as covered as possible at all times will help keep them in tip-top shape and greatly prolong their useful life.

    The Amsteel Blue Polaris Ranger winch lines are popular, as are the Carr ropes by Custom Splice, the Devil’s Hair ropes by Master Pull, and all the winch lines by Monster Rigging. Similarly, the wire and rope company Phillystran also makes quality winch lines and winch line replacements for the Polaris Ranger. So if you’re wanting a 50-foot 3/16” winch rope, a 40-foot 1/4” winch rope, or any other size / style in between, there are many quality options out there for you to choose from.   

    Snow Recovery Vs Mud Recovery

    The winching tactics you implement will vary slightly depending on how and where you’re stuck. Getting high centered on a rut requires a different approach than getting yourself free from a deep mud hole. And winching your way out of a water hazard is quite different than recovering your machine from a snowbank.

    With regards to winter winching methods, it is usually a good idea to pull the vehicle out from the rear. Generally speaking, the buildup of ice and snow in front of the UTV before it gets stuck makes it more difficult to recover from the forward direction. Sure you could dig your way out, and traction boards like the Maxtrax can prove useful for snow recovery tasks well. But the easiest way to recover a UTV from a snowdrift is to do it from the back. And if you’re riding on a frozen lake or any area where natural anchor points are few and far between, tools like the Pull Pal land anchor can be literal lifesavers.

    Final Thoughts

    As far as Polaris Ranger winches are concerned, bigger isn’t always better. And even with the most expensive and powerful Polaris Ranger winch on the market, without the right ancillary accessories like pulleys, shackles, straps and hooks — as well as the know-how to properly use them all — you could still be stuck up crap creek when you find yourself mired down in waist-high mud or snow. Having the right winching gear is important, but knowing how to use it will ensure that you’re never stuck for long!

  • Rough Country For Rough And Rowdy Ranger Riders

    We are excited to announce the newest aftermarket UTV part and accessory contributor to Everything Polaris Ranger: Rough Country. With everything from Polaris Ranger lift kits and light bars to windshields, winches, and windows for all Polaris Ranger models, years, and editions, the folks over at Rough Country have proven themselves to be industry-leading providers of top-tier off-road products. Their lifts and suspension kits for the Polaris Ranger are cutting-edge, and because they also provide parts, kits, and components for other off-road vehicles like trucks, jeeps, and more, their understanding of engineering, materials science, and the physics of powersports is second to none. So let’s jump in and see what makes Rough Country stand out from the crowd!

    Rough Country Polaris Ranger Lift Kits

    In addition to providing springs and shocks for the Polaris Ranger, Rough Country also offers an all-inclusive lift package for the Polaris Ranger that includes everything a rider needs to jack up their rig. SuperATV’s 2” bracket lift is good, but for some riders, an additional bit of clearance is required. So if you’re wanting to run 28”+ tires without any issues, the 3-inch Polaris Ranger lift kit by Rough Country is the way to go.

    Whether you’ve got the 2020 Ranger 1000XP or the Ranger 1000 EPS, Rough Country’s lift kit will install easily onto your machine. You can use them with forward a-arms if you’d like, but aftermarket a-arms are by no means necessary. And because the Polaris Ranger 3-inch lift kit by Rough Country comes with spacers for the factory struts, front and rear lift brackets, as well as sway links and bracket spacer sleeves, your rig’s geometry won’t be positioned in a way that puts your CV joints in jeopardy.

    Why piece together all the various components of a lift when you can get a complete 3-inch Polaris Ranger lift package from a company like Rough Country? Compared to the 3” Polaris Ranger lifts by firms such as OutKast, Catvos, and others, the lift systems by Rough Country are in a league of their own!

    Rough Country Polaris Ranger Lights

    Another area where Rough Country excels is in the aftermarket Polaris Ranger lighting department. The 50” Rough Country light bar, for instance, is incredibly bright, providing enough illumination to overpower the factory Polaris Ranger headlights. Although some pulse bars may not be able to deliver enough current to power this behemoth of a light bar, you can use your pulse bar to trigger the light’s relay. Many riders like to run the light bar’s wiring under the roof and into the hole in the roll bar on the driver’s side. From there it can be threaded down and into the cluster. The install is super clean, and the light bar can fit under the headliner as well. Plus, Rough Country light bars are a fraction of the cost of other high-end UTV lights.

    Although smaller in size than their 50-inch counterpart, Rough Country’s 30” and 8” light bars for the Polaris Ranger 1000, Polaris Ranger 900, and Polaris Ranger 570 are just as intense. The 30” Rough Country light bar is way brighter than many 50” units, and their 8” light bar can put out around 3,600 lumens. Whether you’re tracking deer, lighting up some coyotes, or simply riding to your barn early in the morning and late at night, you can illuminate your way in any situation with a light-related product by Rough Country!

    Rough Country Recovery Solutions For The Polaris Ranger

    In addition to their goliath 9,500 Lb electric UTV winch, Rough Country also makes winch brackets, mounting plates, and winch-related accessories for the Polaris Ranger as well. If you already have a winch and only need a winch mount, Rough Country has what you seek. Or if you need something like a snatch block to augment your winch’s pulling power, Rough Country makes those as well!   

    Ending Notes

    While there are many great motorsports companies out there that dip their toes into the side-by-side scene, Rough Country dove in head first. With an emphasis on customer satisfaction, value, and unbeatable ride quality, there is little doubt that Rough Country will be around for decades to come. So if you’re a Polaris Ranger owner looking for lights, lift kits, windshields, or winch accessories, don’t make the mistake of overlooking the products by Rough Country!

  • Setting the Record Straight: ATVs and Side by Sides are Not the Same

    It’s easy to get lost in semantics when you’re first diving into the jargon-rich world of ATV/side by side riding. Let us be the first to tell you that it’s much easier to navigate this tangled mass of terms than it looks—as long as you start with a top-down approach.

    What we mean by that is, before you start researching the finer points of Polaris Ranger accessories, it’s best to get the “big picture” established first. And for many newbies, this means clarifying the difference between ATVs and Side by Sides. THEN you can start in on that Double Row LED Light Bar you’ve had your eye on. 

    That’s right, ATVs and side by sides are not the same. Let’s break the differences down point by point:

    Size/Seating

    You may have heard ATVs, which stands for all-terrain vehicles, referred to as “quads.” This is in reference to their four wheels, not the ability to accommodate four passengers. ATVs typically accommodate one passenger – they can be thought of as a four-wheeled motorcycle meant for offroad settings.

    Side by sides and UTVs, on the other hand, typically allow two riders to ride – you guessed it – “side by side.” It’s not uncommon at all to see UTVs and side by sides that accommodate four people. Most UTVs don’t roll off the line this way, meaning you will need a high-quality roll cage kit to make the jump from two to four. 

    Where an ATV is like a beefy motorcycle, UTVs and side by sides like the Polaris Ranger are more like super rugged two-seater (or 4) “mini jeeps.” 

    Intended Use

    It’s more common to see ATVs used for recreation. This is because they’re typically more agile than UTVs, handling more like motorcycles. Also, ATVs aren’t able to transport/tow as much as UTVs, though there are plenty of workarounds to at least boost your carrying capacity by a small margin.

    UTVs and side by sides are designed not just to get you to the job site, but to actually do the job in many cases. They can be outfitted with winches, powerful lights, larger storage solutions, farming implements, snow plows, and more. 

    Steering

    ATVs utilize a handlebar setup for steering purposes, which is another element that makes them more like offroad motorcycles. Depending on the type of ATV, you may have a thumb throttle and/or various shifters accessible from your handlebars, as well as the brakes, of course.

    UTVs use steering wheels, though you may find them to be a little bit of a departure from your car on the first couple uses. There are tons of aftermarket variations to enhance your offroad capabilities, give you an edge on race day, and/or free up some extra leg room.

    Overall Experience

    For a more “athletic” experience in terms of wrestling with your steering system, making quick decisions at higher speeds and pulling more aggressive maneuvers, it’s ATV all the way. You’re not working with a roll cage, either, making this a truly open-air experience – once again, just like a motorcycle. 

    That’s not to say that there aren’t plenty of thrills to be had in the UTV/side by side category, however, because these even more muscular offroad adventurers were built for serious abuse, meaning you will experience plenty of thumping around. 

    If You’re Stuck in the Middle, Just Remember This

    Can’t decide between an ATV and a class-leading side by side like the Polaris Ranger? Now that you know how these two classes of trail-pounding vehicles stack up in different areas, it should hopefully be easier for you to make the call. ATVs are more for play, and UTVs are more for work. That said, if you love to play but also have plenty of work to do around your property, then there are plenty of UTVs with more than enough pep to blow your hair back. 

  • The 2021 Polaris Ranger Lineup Released: First Impressions

    Details on Polaris’ 2021 Ranger lineup have been released, and to the joy of those who recently purchased a 2020 Polaris Ranger, no huge changes were announced. However, long-time side-by-side riders know that even the smallest of changes can make outsized differences, and when you’re building on a machine that is already leading the industry, sometimes the best thing you can do is maintain the status quo. While some riders have already taken delivery of the 2021 Polaris Ranger 570 and 500, the details on the other vehicles in Polaris’ 2021 fleet have been nothing but speculation… until now. So let’s get to it and see what’s going on with the 2021 Polaris Ranger lineup. 

    Changing Up The Colors On The 2021 Polaris Ranger

    Polaris got rid of the Sage Green and Metallic Sand color options on the 2021 Polaris Ranger 1000 XP, making it available in Burgundy Metallic, Ghost White, and Matte Navy, and Cammo. They stuck with the orange and grey options for the High Lifter Edition, and introduced a new Trail Boss Edition that comes in white. Ask anyone who rides hard, though, and they’ll tell you that a white-colored body is particularly hard to keep clean, especially with regards to mud stains. 

    The 2021 Polaris General

    Like the other 2021 Ranger models, the most salient difference between the 2021 Polaris General and its predecessor is purely cosmetic. However, even though they didn’t release a High Lifter, North Star, or Turbo General edition like many riders had hoped, Polaris was able to fix the belt slap issues that plagued the clutches of older Polaris General editions. 

    The 2021 Polaris Ranger High Lifter

    One of the biggest difference between the 2021 and 2020 High Lifter Polaris Ranger is that they now come stock with 30” Outlaw tires instead of 28” tires. They also altered the headlights, stuck with the same wheel base, and dropped the travel one inch from 11” on the 2020 High Lifter model to 10” on the 2021 model.

    The 2021 Polaris Ranger XP Series

    A nice surprise for Ranger owners who have experienced turf mode issues is that all 2021 Rangers have geared reverse instead of reverse chains. But with the Polaris Ranger XP edition specifically, the 2021 models have a beefier front end, a rear that is 50% stronger, a stiffer frame, and a larger rear box. This might have some implications for aftermarket a-arms, which could need a redesign to fit these new models, but time will tell with that. Further differences in the 2021 XP 1000 Rangers include the addition of 14” stock rims, a battery charger port, and a fresh front bumper. The 2021 XP 1000 Ranger can also be upgraded with factory LED headlights, but if you cost it out, you’d be better off with an aftermarket headlight kit from a company like BeamTech, Quad Logic, or Heretic Studio

    New 2021 Polaris Ranger Editions

    As we mentioned earlier, Polaris is introducing a new special edition 2021 vehicle: the Polaris Ranger Trail Boss. This edition is replacing the Back Country edition, and it can be upgraded with the NorthStar package as well. Like the Texas Ranger edition, the Trail Boss comes with load-adaptive rear shocks, which are designed to automatically adjust to support added weight. This might seem like overkill for some applications, but it’s perfect for those who frequently pile on and deposit heavy loads. 

    Closing Thoughts On The 2021 Polaris Ranger Lineup

    If you were hoping for major changes to the Polaris Ranger’s interior or exterior this year, you’ll just have to keep waiting. Perhaps there’s more to the 2021 Ranger lineup than is knowable at this point, and when they finally drop, further feedback, additional information, and real-life reviews will become available. For now, however, we are content with the changes made. After all, if you’re not satisfied with a particular aspect of your ride, aftermarket parts, accessories, and alterations are only a few clicks away!

  • What to Look for in a Polaris Ranger Mirror Kit

    They’re just mirrors, right? 

    Most drivers are programmed to gloss over the issue of mirrors when considering aftermarket UTV upgrades because they don’t typically worry about them so much with their regular vehicle. Your regular vehicle, however, isn’t typically popping over tree roots, bouncing out of deep ruts and racing rivals at the track like your Polaris Ranger. For this reason and many others, it’s very important to find a mirror that meets the higher standards of performance we demand of our UTVs. Why do mirrors matter so much to UTV drivers? For one reason above all else – safety. 

    As Always, Safety First

    Simply being able to see behind you is the bare minimum when it comes to what you should expect from a Polaris Ranger side view or rearview mirror. Here are all of the scenarios in which a high-quality mirror will make the difference between compromised and uncompromised safety:

    Visibility – A high-quality mirror mounts where you need it for maximum visibility while providing a wide field of view. Whether you’re racing or backing into a tight area, this means that you and your passengers can quickly identify and communicate information about where the obstruction/other vehicle is for maximum safety.  

    Profile – It’s okay for a Polaris Ranger mirror to stick out from the frame to a certain extent, but if it won’t break away on impact, then you may want to consider something with a more discrete profile for those tight squeezes. This plays an important part in safety as well, because snapping a mirror off while navigating a tight area never bodes well for safety.  

    Rigidity – As mentioned, Polaris Ranger mirrors that break away are always a good option because they give you the best of both worlds: high visibility and durability. Especially mirrors that are designed to be easily rebuilt or re-positioned after a hard impact. A certain amount of rigidity is of course desirable, otherwise your mirror may move out of position too easily, but too much can be problematic in terms of safety as well as performance in a competitive environment. 

    Vibration Control – This is a big one that tends to take newer UTV enthusiasts by surprise sometimes. Unlike the comparatively “plush” highways and city streets we’re used to taking with our automobiles, UTVs obviously have to deal with much bumpier conditions. In the case of an inferior or poorly secured mirror, this means that your mirror could vibrate out of its optimal position and essentially render itself useless until you fix it. This is NOT what you want to happen in a race scenario, where every second could cost you dearly. 

    Here’s Who Made Our Cut 

    Now that you know what to look for in terms of the safety-boosting attributes of Polaris Ranger mirrors, the next question is who? Which brands best encapsulate your particular needs in one affordable mirror? Because everyone’s needs our different, we’ll cover three of our most trusted brands: ATV Tek, Assault Industries, and Seizmik.

    ATV Tek – If there’s a more balanced selection of Polaris Ranger aftermarket mirrors out there, we don’t know it. ATV Tek has it all – dual axis breakaway technology, unparalleled field of view, and a vibration-resistant rubberized seal that holds the mirror steady. To top it all off, their Elite Series sideview mirrors utilize a low-profile, 360-degree-adjustable design. For maximum value, we highly recommend the Elite Series 1 – Trifecta Pack, which comes with both sideview mirrors and a rearview mirror. 

    Assault Industries – True to their name, when it comes to UTV mirrors, Assault Industries provides military-grade strength and quality at a realistic price. Our favorite feature in their sideview mirrors has to be the aggressive, angular design that allows for maximum visibility without the bulky and in-the-way design that obstructs your view ahead. Most of their mirrors are rebuildable, highly adjustable, and amazingly easy to mount. Their Polaris Ranger Aviator UTV Side Mirrors are an excellent place to start.

    Seizmik – Guaranteed to keep out the elements and resist vibration with an expertly designed rubber isolator, Seizmik mirrors deliver something that most competitors can’t: blissful ignorance. After going months and months without having to adjust or replace these ABS-housed, breakaway mirrors, you’ll just accept them as part of your Polaris Ranger roll cage. Check out their Polaris Ranger Side Mirrors today and see what we mean.

    It’s this simple: make a list (per above) of everything you want in a mirror, check out our huge selection at Everything Polaris Ranger, and confidently invest in your safety. Done!  

  • The Best Side-By-Side Tire And Wheel Setups For The Polaris Ranger Lineup

    There are many modifications you can make to your side-by-side to make it quicker, more stable, and perform better in particular situations. And regardless of whether you are a 2020 Polaris Ranger Mid-Size 500 owner who likes to hit the dunes in the evenings after work, or a recreational Polaris Ranger Crew 1000 owner who goes on weekend rides with the family, everyone can benefit in one way or another from aftermarket Polaris Ranger wheels and tires. However, a Polaris Ranger wheel and tire kit that makes one rider excel in the mud, could be deleterious for another rider who primarily rides light trails and dusty backroads. So just because your buddy swears by the  8” Portals and 37” BKT tires on his Ranger, this setup isn’t necessarily optimal for every kind of riding. 

    To help you get a better feel for which Polaris Ranger rims and tires work best for which situations, we’ve put together this informative blog about the best side-by-side tire and wheel setups for the Polaris Ranger lineup. By the end, you should have a better understanding of your own personal needs as well as the offerings available from both Polaris as well as the many aftermarket side-by-side wheel and tire manufacturers out there.

    Directional Polaris Ranger Tires

    Some Polaris Ranger owners who battle extreme weather and terrain conditions like to use directional Polaris Ranger tires and wheels. Because the tread patterns on directional side-by-side tires are generally v-shaped, they are optimized to generate exceptional grip in the forward direction. Riders who plow snow or ride in wet and muddy conditions often opt for directional winter tires or all-season tires for their Polaris Ranger. And depending on the thickness of the tread, directional Polaris Ranger street tires will typically provide a quieter and smoother ride on gravel roads and blacktop. 

    When it comes to directional side-by-side tires, it’s not all rainbows and sunshine. There are a few caveats with directional tires that put them out of the running for some UTV owners. Although you can swap directional tires from front to back, you can’t swap them from side to side as you would when rotating non-directional tires. As such, you may experience unequal wear across the tread. Additionally, because directional tires grip best when spinning in the forward direction, the grip they provide when reversing is lackluster. If performance gains on wet or slippery ground is what you seek, directional tires could suit you well. But if you’re more concerned about longevity and durability, there are other options which stand out in that field.

    The Difference Between Polaris Ranger Tire Compounds

    The delicate balance between grip and durability is something one must consider when approaching Polaris Ranger tires. The most durable side-by-side tiers are generally those with big lugs, which last longer simply because there’s more material there to begin with. But in addition to the amount of tread, the compound your side-by-side tires are constructed from will also affect their durability -- as well as their grip and overall performance.

    Softer side-by-side tire compounds deform more and flex around smaller irregularities in the ground, thus increasing friction and thereby improving traction. This is advantageous when cornering at high speeds, when rock crawling, and when hill climbing. If maximizing grip is your aim, softer side-by-side tire compounds will oblige. With better grip, however, comes more friction. And with more friction comes added heat, which amplifies tire wear and tread degradation. Furthermore, when riding over jagged granite and limestone, sharp logs, and pointy branches, gummy side-by-side tires are more likely to get cut up, scraped, and punctured. So if you ride on such terrain or if you use your rig for work-related purposes, running a hard-compound Polaris Ranger tire that can stand the test of time might be in your best interest. 

    The Hardest-Working Polaris Ranger Tire And Rim Setups

    If you use your side-by-side for yard work, hunting excursions, or to conduct daily chores around the farm, you’re probably the type of person who values hard work. And for those who log double-digit hours day in and day out, having a Polaris Ranger tire and rim set that can meet or exceed these demands is important. To both handle hefty loads and protect the inner tube of the tire from punctures, UTV tires have been made with increasingly more rubber / cord layers (called plies). The higher the ply number, the thicker the tire is. And with more thickness comes a greater capability to handle heavier loads. 

    The 10-ply Gripper tire set by Fuel Off-Road for the Polaris Ranger is about as rugged as they come, however the X Comp ATR tire kit by STI Powersports and the Carnivore tire set by Maxxis are also up there in terms of strength. And while many multi-use riders like to go with SuperATV’s Intimidator tires, these might be a little excessive for those who use their side-by-sides for work purposes. It should also be noted that with large tires, the potential for rubbing at stock height will increase. Things like forward a-arms can be installed, but even with such modifications  your tires might still rub on sharp turns if they’re over 30”.  

    A Polaris Ranger Wheel And Rim Overview

    Riders often talk about side-by-side tires without considering Polaris Ranger wheels. Just because the wheel doesn’t make contact with the ground, doesn’t mean that its role is less significant. Modifications like portals might be incompatible with 12” Polaris Ranger rims, and many tires work better with a specific type of wheel. The wheel offset and backspacing you run can alter the stance of your side-by-side, and the material your wheels are made from will either add to or subtract from your rig’s overall unsprung weight. And depending on how hard you ride, specific Polaris Ranger wheels and rims can help prolong the life of your wheel bearings. 

    Companies like MSA, KMC Wheels, STI, and handful of others make both aluminum and steel wheels for the Polaris Ranger to meet any need. If your Ranger is a work rig or booze cruiser, some strong and sturdy steel side-by-side wheels will get the job done. But if you’re looking for Polaris Ranger wheels and rims with a few more style points, a set of aluminum chrome or matte black rims can help to amply your machine’s wrap or paint job significantly.

    Finishing Thoughts

    Asking “What is the best side-by-side tire and wheel setup?” is like asking what the best automobile is. The answers you get will be inconsistent, and they will vary depending on who you ask. You’ll get people who say Chevy Duramax trucks with Allison Transmissions are the best, while others will say that you can’t beat a Dodge Cummins for towing. If the metric in question is top speed, a supercar would be the answer. And if the metric in question is eco-friendliness, Tesla might be the best solution. 

    The same reasoning can be applied to Polaris Ranger tires and wheels. Some riders might want a set of side-by-side rims and tires for maximum grip, while others would prefer something for a smooth ride. And for those that want a tire and rim setup to perform well on a wide spectrum of conditions and terrain types, it might be worthwhile to sacrifice a bit of effectiveness here or there to gain above-average performance on all ground types with an all-terrain Polaris Ranger tire and wheel kit. Whichever camp you fall into, however, there are solutions out there to fulfill your every need. And at Everything Polaris Ranger, we make obtaining said solutions as easy ABC!

  • Combine Family Camping with UTV Riding

    What could be better than taking the entire family out of town for a weekend of camping? Combining it with a weekend of riding your Polaris Ranger, of course! 

    Getting your family out on the trails is the perfect way to truly enjoy the outdoors during a camping trip. Of course, before you even think about going anywhere, you’ll want to first outfit your rig with all the parts and accessories that you’ve been wanting, which can all be found on EverythingPolarisRanger.com. After that, it’s time to do some research on which campgrounds will work best for you and your family.  

    You’ll want to do more than riding, so besides searching for the campgrounds with the best off-roading options, what else should you look for in a campground? Depending on the location of your desired campground, family activities could range from hiking, paddling, horseback riding, cycling, swimming, kayaking, and much more depending on your preference. If you’re roughing it out in the wilderness, bring along some lawn games to get the whole family involved. Each campground is unique in their offerings, and research will tell you which is best for you.

    If you don’t own a UTV but want to have the experience of riding during a camping trip, don’t worry- there are plenty of campgrounds that have on-site UTV rental services available to campers. That way, you can scratch that adrenaline-junkie itch while not having to worry about transporting a rig to and from the campground, along with all the costs of repair and maintenance that come with it.

  • How to Wash your Polaris Ranger Windshield

    Whether you’re working hard or playing hard, tearing up the trails in your Polaris Ranger usually means your windshield will be completely covered in mud to show for it. While all that dirt and grime serves as a symbol of damn-good time, leaving your rig uncleaned can actually harm it in the long run and end up costing you money to repair or replace it. All the same, improperly cleaning it can be just as much of an issue, as having a clear sightline is crucial to safely operate your UTV. Unfortunately, cleaning it right is not as simple as just hosing it off, or using any old rag and soap combo. So before you let the mud dry onto your Ranger, let’s take a look at how properly cleaning your windshield will prevent damage while saving you money in the long run.

    Know your Material

    Before you get started, it’s important to know what material your Polaris Ranger windshield is made of. Whether it’s glass, acrylic or polycarbonate, each requires its own maintenance process. Glass is scratch-resistant, so you can clean it virtually any way you’d like, though the best way is always rinsing it with water and wiping it down with a cloth. Acrylic, which is also known as Plexiglass and Lucite, is fairly scratch-resistant, but not quite so durable as glass. Polycarbonate is the strongest of the three materials but is susceptible to scratching, which is why it is imperative that users know how to clean their windshields safely and effectively without compromising the quality of the material.

    How to Properly Clean

    Now that you know the type of material you’re dealing with, how can you get that dried-up grime off your windshield safely?

    First, thoroughly wash your windshield, but don’t pull out the sponge or rag just yet. The grit and gravel in all that dirt can easily scrape up your windshield if it’s smudged around with a rag. To minimize damage, start by using a hose to rinse away any loose dirt. 

    Next, you’ll need a cloth. We recommend a soft, lint-free cloth that is brand-new, though a used one will work just fine so long as it is completely clean. Rinse your cloth and be sure you don’t see any particles in the water before use.

    Create a mixture of mild liquid dish soap and warm water, or a UTV-specific cleaning solution. Novus is a popular solution among UTVers and can be found on Amazon. If you have a polycarbonate shield, avoid using harsh abrasives or chemicals that might cause damage, and instead consider using a light detergent such as dish soap, baby shampoo or hand soap.

    After rinsing, you’ll have to put in a little elbow grease to get the rest of the dirt off. Wet your cloth in your cleaning solution and wash your windshield’s interior and exterior, applying light pressure to reduce the risk of scratching. Do not use paper towels or Windex; paper towels are abrasive, while Windex is a harsh solution that may scratch the surface.

    Once all the dirt is wiped away, rinse the windshield down once more to clear away any remaining loose dirt. Spot check as you see fit, using the recommended side-to-side motion. Let your windshield airdry for 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the humidity of your location.

    Once your Ranger is dry, you’re all set to get muddied up on the trails all over again! Stay safe while riding, and be sure to check out Everything Polaris Ranger for all your UTV parts and accessories. Still need a windshield? Browse our Windshields available from several brands.
