  • Polaris expands Model-Year Lineup

    Here at Everything Polaris Ranger, we’re just as excited as anyone else when Polaris comes out with new models and lineups. That’s why, when the Minnesota-based manufacturer recently added to its 2020 lineup with the addition of two new units, we knew we had to let our customers know about it. Take a look at each new model to see the full breadth of offerings that customers will love about the General 1000 Sport and the 2020 Outlaw 70 EFI.

    2020 General 1000 Sport

    The General 1000 Sport has been built for riders looking to grow their off-road experience with a sport-utility side-by-side. This unit has been built to help users accomplish the toughest jobs and the harshest backcountry trails with ease. While this model features new and improved capabilities that set this unit apart, riders may recognize the similarities to the General 1000 base model, along with updates that include a new exterior color, eye-catching graphics, color-matched springs and trail-ready, 12-inch aluminum wheels- all for an MSRP of $15,999.

    The all-wheel-drive and class-leading 100-horsepower ProStar 1000 engine will have customers scrambling to get behind the wheel to conquer any trail while having the time of their lives. With 12-inches of suspension travel and 12-inches of ground clearance, riders are almost guaranteed to have a smooth ride all the way through every time they ride, even when the terrain throws obstacles your way. The bolstered bucket seats and standard half doors have been developed to further optimize rider comfort during those lengthy rides. Up to 600 lbs. can be hauled in the dumping cargo box, while the unit has been constructed to haul up to 1,500 lbs. of extra gear. 

    With more than 300 Polaris Engineered accessory options, riders have hundreds of different options to customize their vehicle to make the most of each adventure. 

    The General 1000 Sport will arrive in dealerships beginning in April. 

    2020 Outlaw 70 EFI

    For the youth lineup, the Polaris Outlaw EFI is setting a whole new pace for the next generation of riders looking to get their start in the off-roading world or continue as they grow in their adventures. Designed for riders ages six and up, this easy-to-ride ATV comes ready with industry-leading safety features that will keep young riders safe and parents at ease, while the new, larger design has been specifically modified so the machine will grow with its rider. The electronic fuel injection (EFI) offers improved cold starts that will have your kids conquering the trails faster than ever.

    This new model features a 70cc engine that is built to complement a wide range of youth skill levels so riders can continue enjoying the machine through their growth spurts. The parent-adjustable speed limiter allows parents to set the safest pace for their kids while ensuring their riders are enjoying their unit to the fullest. Other features include an industry-exclusive safety kit featuring a helmet, safety tether, training DVD and whip flag.

    The Outlaw 70 EFI is available in a variety of colors and will hit dealerships beginning in April.

  • How to Find Your Polaris Ranger Roll Bar Size

    When shopping for Polaris Ranger accessories, there are several details about your UTV that should be known before pulling the trigger. While many commonalities exist between different years, editions, and models of the Polaris Ranger Mid-Size, Polaris Ranger Full-Size, Polaris Ranger Crew, and Polaris General, there are a few key distinctions that would prove problematic if overlooked. If you're looking for a quick chart, you'll find the info needed here. If you'd like to dive a bit deeper into the sizes & style options - keep reading further down the post!

    Polaris Ranger Roll Bar Size by Vehicle

    • Ranger 400 - 1.75"
    • Ranger 500 - 1.75"
    • Ranger 570 - 1.75" (Pro-fit cage use PF-Out and PF-In Clamps)
    • Ranger 800 - 1.75"
    • Ranger 6x6 800 - 1.75"
    • Ranger EV - 1.75"
    • Ranger XP 900 - 1.75"
    • Ranger XP 1000 - 1.75"
    • Ranger Diesel - 1.75"
    • Ranger 1000 - 1.75"
    • Ranger Crew - (Pro Fit cage NOT ROUND use PF-OUT & PF-IN clamps) Use 9” Bolt On mirror for rearview
    • General 1000 - 1.75" (Top crossbar only, Pro-fit cage use PF-Out and PF-In Clamps)

    Among the various specifications that distinguish one Polaris Ranger model from another, differences in roll bar / roll cages / rollover protection structures (ROPS) are near the top of the list in terms of importance. Although all sizes and styles of factory Polaris Ranger ROPS are certified to withstand a rollover, some aftermarket accessories only work with one particular cage style. 

    Polaris Ranger accessories like roofs, windshields, and cab enclosures need to match your machine’s cage style to fit properly, and things like side-view mirrors, gun brackets, and other accessories that mount onto the vehicle’s ROPS must also be compatible with the size and shape of the roll bars and crossbars. As far as the Polaris Ranger is concerned, there are two ROPS variants: ProFit cages and Non-ProFit Cages.

    Before 2014, all Polaris Rangers used tubular-style roll cages with round, cylindrical bars. Starting in 2015, however, Polaris introduced the ProFit cages that are semi-round, and semi-rectangular. Some confusion arises because the 2015 Polaris Ranger Full-Size 570 was made using the same chassis as the Polaris Ranger 900 XP -- with the ProFit roll cage. Then, a year later, Polaris made another version of the Full-Size Ranger 570. Except instead of using a ProFit 900 XP cage, they stuck 570cc engines inside Polaris Ranger 800 chassis with round-tube roll cages and strut front suspension.   

    The 570 Full-Size Rangers with ProFit cages and dual a-arm front suspension became a part of the XP family, and in 2017, Polaris lengthened the wheelbase by four inches and reintroduced Turf Mode. And while we could go on and on enumerating the differences between each year and model of the Polaris Ranger, for the sake of brevity, we’ll stick to differences in roll cages. 

    The main difference between ProFit cages and Non-ProFit cages are their shape and size. Many accessories made to fit ProFit body styles won’t work on Non-ProFit body styles. Things like doors, windshields, and mounting clamps that work with one cage style usually won’t work with the other. And because most of the newer Polaris Ranger editions have ProFit cages, the majority of aftermarket accessories are made for new body style (NBS) Rangers. If you own a regular-cab (round tube) Ranger, you’re going to want to find accessories that fit 2010-2014 800 XP Rangers.  

    As far as perimeter lengths go, Polaris Rangers that were made before 2015 (2014 and older) have rear bumper crossbars that are 1.5 inches, with 1.25-inch rear top crossbars on the four-seater versions. The Polaris General has 1.75-inch top crossbars, and the rear harness bar on the newer Ranger models is 1.75 inches as well. 

    A surefire way to ensure that you’re getting the right accessories to fit your cage is to simply measure it. Measuring calipers can be used to find the length and diameter of your machine’s roll bars, and you can also use string or printable cutouts like the one found here to measure the perimeter of your roll tubes.

    At the end of the day, you can avoid serious frustration by knowing the style and size of your Polaris Ranger Mid-Size, Full-Size, Crew-Cab, or General roll cage. If you own a Ranger with the ProFit cage, there are many brackets, clamps, and other mounts made specifically to fit NBS Rangers. And if you own a Ranger with round, tubular roll bars, ensuring that your accessories are compatible with it will help you to avoid returns and unnecessary modifications.  

  • How to pick a Winch and Winch Mount for your Polaris Ranger

    If you’re reading this blog, chances are you’ve given some thought to adding a winch to your Ranger. First of all, great choice! Whether you’ve got years of experience or are just starting out in your new rig, having a winch can be handy in almost any situation. But you may be wondering, how exactly should you go about choosing the best winch for your Ranger? There are a variety of factors you should take into consideration when shopping around on Everything Polaris Ranger for the perfect winch. Take a look at the considerations below to help you optimize your search to outfit your rig with the best winch to use on your adventures.

    Weight Rating

    If you’re shopping around for a winch, knowing the range of weight is one of the first steps in outfitting your rig with the proper winch. The general recommendation on the market today is to start with a winch with a pull capacity of 3,000-lbs at minimum. Anything less than that may not have the pulling power you’re looking for as a Ranger user. The 4,000-lb range is built for the extra-tough capabilities and are designed to handle the extra weight that can come from operating a hefty side-by-side. If your Ranger is on the heavier side of the spectrum, you may want to invest in a winch with a higher weight rating.

    Choose your cable

    There are two types of winch cables to choose from: wire rope and synthetic rope. 

    Wire rope consists of many small strands of steel wire typically made of air-craft grade galvanized steel that is built to resist corrosion. Steel is heavy, so the cable typically has some weight to it, but the strength of the steel makes the cable resistant to abrasion, making it a great option for those planning to use their winch frequently. Though it is durable, it is recommended for users to wear gloves each time they pull out the cable, as it is common for some strands to break. The wire rope is typically best when partaking in heavy-duty tasks, such as moving logs or bales of hay, or other strenuous activities that involve some heavy lifting.

    Synthetic rope is considerably lighter than wire rope, constructed out of polymer-based materials that are typically safer to touch than wire. The material has stronger tensile strength than that of wire, even frequently being classified as 25-40 percent stronger than steel. The light weight of the rope allows it to even float if brought into water, making it a perfect option for recreational riders who frequent mud and bogs. Though stronger than steel, the synthetic rope can fray more easily, though it is much safer to handle if it breaks.

    Choose your mounting plate

    There are some winches that come with a mounting plate, but several do not. If your side-by-side does not come standard with a mount plate, you may purchase those separately. When choosing your mounting plate, you should know whether it needs to be mounted foot-down for foot-forward. Mounting your winch incorrectly could cause irreparable damage, so it is important to know which will match your winch’s mounting configuration. Do your research and find which type of mounting plate is compatible with your winch before you mount it on your unit.

    Select your winch

    Now that you know what you’re looking for in a winch, it’s time to select which will work best for you. Take some time to peruse the winches available on Everything Polaris Ranger to make the selection that will work best with you and your preferences. Keep in mind while shopping that Polaris makes several winches specifically for the Ranger that are pre-wired. Manufacturers such as Super ATV, Warn, Kolpin, Moose and Quad Boss have winches available on Everything Polaris Ranger.

    Now that you know what you’re looking for, head over to Everything Polaris Ranger to select the perfect winch before you head out on your next adventure!

    Taking on those sharp turns and rocky trails will be a breeze with the 800 2-inch Lift Kit by SuperATV. This lift kit adds two inches in the front and back for noticeably improved handling.

    Polaris Ranger 500/570 Rear Bumper

    Polaris Ranger Cooter Brown UTV Stereo

    No matter your musical preferences, riders will love the Cooter Brown UTV Stereo by EMP. The UTV Bluetooth Stereo is compatible with almost any cell phone with streaming capabilities, making it the perfect tool in your quest to get pumped up before, during and after your ride. 

    Polaris Ranger 400 Full Cab Enclosure

    While most areas of the United States are slowly warming up, some riders might still prefer a ride with a little less wind and more protection. The Polaris Ranger 400/500 Full Cab Enclosure by GCL UTV protects riders from the elements during their ride and locks in the warmth. The polycarbonate windshield makes it virtually impossible for anything to penetrate the glass, much less leave a scratch. Riders can rest assured that their ride will be safe and comfortable when they’re concealed by this cab enclosure.

    Polaris Ranger 570 Cab Heater

    While we’re on the topic of warmth and comfort, why not continue the trend by outfitting your UTV with a cab heater?

  • Choosing a Lighted Side Mirror for your Polaris Ranger

    Maintaining visibility while driving your car down the highway is one of the most important aspects of vehicular transportation, so why wouldn’t the same go for those operating a Polaris Ranger?

    Side mirrors are essential for UTV riders. Whether you’re cruising down a public trail with your friends on your tail or ripping down private trails solo, retaining visibility while behind the wheel of a UTV is detrimental to your safety and the safety of others. Having side mirrors helps you keep an eye on your riding buddies or on the trail as it disappears behind you in a cloud of dust. Some mirrors even feature LED lighting that will improve your ride if the sun has already begun to set.

    So, what goes into choosing the perfect LED side mirrors? Everything from safety to the lighting and color of your side mirrors should be taken into consideration when choosing which product will work best for your UTV. 

    Of course, safety should be the top priority when selecting the best in lighted side mirrors. Rear lighting will keep you visible to other riders in the area. If you are travelling in groups, moving the light higher on the rear side will help trailing vehicles use it as an indicator. 

    If your goal is to make your unit street-legal, compliance could become an issue depending on where you are riding; though the rules vary depending on state and location, having a “blue safety light” in the rear is standard for easier visibility to trailing cars.

    While the color of the light might seem more like a cosmetic feature, the color actually affects the function of the light quite a bit. For example, when riding through areas where clouds of dust will be kicked up, you must have light that is able to pass through the haze to alert others of your presence and proximity to them. If the light is unable to cut through the dust, riders may not be able to see one another until it’s too late. 

    Braking is always indicated by a red color, which has become almost universal for both powersports units and vehicles as the indication for stopping. Not having the signature red brake lights to signal a stop could lead to dangerous situations for riders and passengers.

    So where can you get some of these coveted side light mirrors for your UTV? Here are a few side mirrors available on Everything Polaris Ranger that customers should consider outfitting their machine with before taking their rig on their next big adventure.

    Polaris Ranger Side Mirrors with LED Spotlights by Moose

    The Polaris Ranger 570 (Round Bars)/ General 1000 Side Mirrors with LED Spotlights by Moose are an excellent option for those looking to outfit their Polaris Ranger with versatile side mirrors. Featuring LEDs that can be used as running lights, these side mirrors are constructed from glass, are fully adjustable and are convex to reduce glare. The durable housing ensures that rough activity on the trails will be no match, and the trails will stay brightly illuminated even through the roughest rides.

     Polaris Ranger Pro-Fit Pursuit Night Vision Series Side View Mirrors with Dual Mode LEDs by Seizmik

     These side mirrors will take away any limitations imposed by nightfall and keep you going long after sunset. The Polaris Ranger Pro-Fit Pursuit Night Vision Series Side View Mirrors with Dual Mode LEDs ensure that your nightly activities will continue under moonlight, allowing you to continue navigating even the narrowest trails under the beam of light thrown off by the mirrors. The mirrors come with IP68 water-resistant metal housing that can withstand extreme conditions. The convex mirror surface permits drivers to see around them with a wide viewing angle and image stability. The adjustable independent glass allows drivers to peruse even the roughest of terrain by staying put through every ride. Other features include weather sealed caps to protect hardware from moisture and debris, tough aluminum housing that can withstand almost anything thrown its way, and adaptive 360-degree bracket rotation that will accommodate any angle roll cage pillar to provide an optimal viewing position chosen by the user.

    Use good judgment when purchasing the side mirrors right for you, and keep in mind that different mirrors offer different functionalities and signals to other drivers. Make the decision that works best for you, and be safe out there!

  • ATVs vs UTVs - What's the Difference?

    Regardless if you’re an avid rider who hits the trails every weekend or you’ve never set foot in a powersports dealership, chances are you’ve heard the two acronyms, ATV and UTV, at some point or another. Each type of unit share similarities that commonly group the two as alike, or even the same. Many manufacturers have both ATV and UTV lineups available to customers. And perhaps most obvious, each of them has four wheels. 

    But what exactly makes these machines different from each other?

    There are a slew of unique characteristics that give each machine its individuality, along with varying functionalities that serve various types of riders. Whether you’re looking for something catered to work or play, here are a few characteristics of ATVs and UTVs that set each of them apart and make them the ideal unit for specific functionalities. 

    ATV

    ATVs, or all-terrain vehicles, are an ideal unit for someone looking to do some solo riding. They are smaller than UTVs, and as such are great for getting through small spaces and navigating thinner trails that a UTV wouldn’t typically be able to squeeze through. These machines are built for making quick turns and darting down the trails. They are typically built to hold one rider, though some are constructed to hold a passenger behind the driver. These units are built for a fun afternoon on the trails- they are built to smoothly navigate rocky terrain while keeping the rider safe and comfortable. 

    Riding an ATV is a bit more physically demanding than operating a UTV, with riders having to straddle the seat like the saddle of a horse rather than sitting in a conventional seat. The handlebar system makes driving an ATV a bit more like riding a bike than driving a car (though the ATVs have a bit more horsepower than a bike). While farmers typically use UTVs for heavy duty work, ATVs can be used to help farmers move around the farm quickly and accomplish a wide variety of tasks.

    UTV

    UTVs, or utility task vehicles, are commonly used by ranchers, farmers and hunters for outdoor tasks that involve hauling, navigating rough terrain or anything else that might require a little extra kick. Most UTVs can seat between 2-4 people, while some are even equipped to seat six so the whole family can come along and enjoy the ride. Driving a UTV is much like driving a car, with a steering wheel and foot pedals that drive the machine forward. 

    While most ATVs are built for a fun weekend ride on the trails, UTVs boast a hardy build that make them the perfect unit to use on the farm on a day-to-day basis. These units are designed for heavy-duty work that makes hauling equipment or other abundant materials a breeze. The large storage space in the bed makes it possible to transport anything from point A to point B quickly and efficiently.  

    So, which machine is better? Ultimately, the choice is yours. If you’re looking for a solo ride down some rocky trails that need some maneuvering, an ATV might be your best bet. If you want to load up the family for a day of riding, or if you are looking for a machine with some serious horsepower, then a UTV might be the way to go.

    Whether you’re a farmer looking for a work-horse related machine for hauling or an ATV enthusiast looking for your next wild ride, both ATVs and UTVs have plenty of offerings that will make your next big adventure, or your next day of work, one to remember.

  • Top Five UTV Accessories To Get You Through Winter

    As a UTV owner, bringing your unit out into the chilly elements for work or play can be a breeze with the right accessories. Whether you live in the suburbs or out in the sticks with several miles separating you from your nearest neighbor, here are five accessories that will help you through the last stretch of winter before the flowers begin to bloom and the snow makes way for greener days.

    Polaris Ranger Plow

    A plow attachment will make even the strongest snowstorms look like a breeze, giving users the opportunity to clear their driveways quickly and easily without the added time and pain of using a shovel or a snowblower. Stow the shovel in the back of the garage and save the back pain for another day by attaching your plow, jumping behind the wheel of your UTV and clearing away snow in record-time. 

    The Eagle Plow Mount System promises a user-friendly process that is sure to make installation a breeze for even the novice UTV rider. The extra-wide 72-inch design was built with durability and usability in mind. It plows a wide path and features end supports for added strength and durability. Retailing at 609.95 on EverythingPolarisRanger.com, this plow is a must-have for riders residing in the north, in the mountains, or anyone simply looking to get something out of their way in a hurry.

    Polaris Ranger Cab Enclosure

    The fun doesn’t have to stop when the balmy summer days make way for cool winter months. A cab enclosure allows users to take their unit out on the trails for some good ol’ fashion fun to enjoy the Winter Wonderland while remaining safe and comfortable within their UTV.

    The PathPro RCS Cab Enclosure by Curtis Industries can be used in any season. The windshield opens to increase ventilation, and a wiper kit can be added to clear away rain or snow. The quick-release mounting system will allow users to quickly add or remove cab components in changing weather patterns, with no time wasted in the installation process- the windshield can be installed and ready within one minute, allowing users to hop in and go. No matter the weather conditions, the PathPro RCS Cab Enclosure is sure to give users the ultimate experience, rain or shine!

    Polaris Ranger Winch

    That huge pile of snow in your driveway may be begging to be bulldozed, but sometimes plowing straight through will only leave your unit stuck with few options of how to get it free. Rather than waiting weeks for the spring thaw, a winch can make quick work of getting you or your friends out of a sticky situation. Whether you need to pull yourself out of a pile of snow or move a downed tree off the trail, a winch is the ultimate solution to getting out of a bind and back on the road in no time.

    The Synthetic Rope Winch by SuperATV promises fast results with a 50-foot, 6.5mm thick synthetic rope and a wireless remote control that will get you out of almost anything. The weather-proof seals promise to keep your gears turning even in the worst of conditions, and a smooth, reliable electric system will keep your battery running. The synthetic rope is light, safe and won’t rust- a huge benefit for those of us experiencing snow flurries outside our windows during the cold months!

    Polaris Ranger Heater

    We keep ourselves warm inside our homes, so why not in our UTV’s as well? A heater will do exactly as promised: heat up your cab and create a balmy, comfortable environment that rivals even the natural conditions of a warm summer day. Get the beauty of winter and the warm benefits of summer, all in one package!

    The Polaris Ranger 800 Cab Heater by Curtis Industries comes equipped with a defroster and two additional lower vents for the driver and passenger to ensure ultimate comfort while hitting the trails during the snowy months. The heater installs directly to the inside of the cab to create the best environment possible for both rider and passenger. Riding is made far more enjoyable while comfortable, and the Heater for the Polaris Ranger ensures that users are in the lap of luxury during even the coldest rides.

    Polaris Ranger Windshield

    A front windshield protects users from the bite of the cold air while ensuring the safety and protection of all occupants. Riders and passengers will enjoy prolonged comfort, ensuring that the fun continues without interruption. 

    The Polaris Ranger Full Utility Windshield will keep the cold air and elements out of your cab while creating a comfortable ride for you and your friends. The installation is quick and easy, with a simple removal process for the days where you’d prefer a nice breeze to blow through the cabin. The premium .177 inch thick polycarbonate ensures durability and longevity for years of enjoyment.

    Just because the trails are covered in snow and the temperatures are low doesn’t mean you should let your UTV gather dust for several months out of the year. By taking the right steps and adding the right accessories, UTV owners can enjoy the winter months behind the wheel of their unit to keep the air full of the sound of revved engines year-round. So layer up, get outside, and enjoy your unit to the fullest!

  • Polaris Ranger Survival Kit: What You Should Keep In Your Emergency Tool Box

    Rule number one when riding your Polaris Ranger is to always stick with a buddy. However, we know that there are many circumstances where you’ll be riding alone. So whether you’re conducting some of solo work, or heading out on a solitary ride to clear your mind and do a little soul searching, you should always carry an emergency survival kit when you venture out alone in your Polaris Ranger. From recovery kits and emergency tools to spare parts and survival rations, here are the most important items that every Polaris Ranger owner should keep in-vehicle to stay prepared for the worst case scenario.  

    Polaris Ranger Recovery Gear

    The go-to solution for recovering a stuck Ranger is a UTV winch. But this alone is insufficient. In addition to your winch, your recovery kit should also include shackles, chokers, and a snatch block. With regards to the former, many Polaris Ranger owners recommend soft shackles. Not only are they super strong, but they’re way safer and easier to use than standard shackles.  

    Winch extension lines, tow straps, and pulling tools like the ropes by Bubba Rope are an integral part of recovery. But even with hundreds of feet of extra winch line, you may still not be able to reach the nearest tree. So if you know there’s a chance you’ll get stuck while riding in a treeless area, a Pull Pal Land Anchor is worth bringing along. Similarly, you could also pack a 4-6 foot rock bar and a T-post driver to pound the bar into the ground when you have nothing else to tie your winch to. 

    Gloves will protect your hands when operating a winch or using other recovery tools, and traction boards like those by Maxtrax are great for both sandy and snowy applications. Farm jacks are another versatile tool that you can mount on the exterior of your Ranger and use like a come-a-long jack for recovery if your winch goes out. And when all else fails, good old human power will always come to the rescue, so bringing tools such as shovels, machetes, axes, and picks can get you out of a bind should your other equipment fall short. 

    Maintaining A Rideable Ranger In The Field

    Most parts of the Polaris Ranger can be temporarily rigged up and supported with basic tools and supplies to get you back to civilization in a pinch. Things like tie rod ends, replacement bolts, and extra lug nuts should be readily available in your bed or tool box, and ensuring that you can get home in the event of a tire malfunction is also pivotal.   

    Tire plugs and a portable pumps / 12v compressors should fix a pinch flat or a puncture. As long as it’s not a sidewall issue, patches and plugs — or even something like a can of fix-a-flat — should enable you to either keep going or limp back to camp. Many riders use a spare tire rack to store a spare Polaris Ranger tire for emergency situations. If you’re going haul a spare though, just make sure it’s the same size as either the front or back tires. And even if you don’t have a spare, you’d be surprised how tough a flat tire can be. 

    If you can’t get your flat tire to hold air after patching it up, it’s probably ruined beyond repair. You can ride on a flat if you have to, and if you’re tire is spent anyway, it sure beats freezing to death stuck in the woods. Preventative measures can be taken to avoid flat tires in the Polaris Ranger, such as running thicker 8-ply tires or by using something called Green Slime Tire Sealant. Regarding the latter, however, you shouldn’t put Green Slime in your tires and leave it in. After about a year or two, the slime may start eating holes in your wheels — regardless of whether they’re aluminum or steel. 

    Polaris Ranger Survival Kit Essentials

    To be prepared for everything in your Polaris Ranger, you’ll likely need a trailer, not a tool box. But there are a few items that are common culprits for breakdowns or can be lifesaving in emergency situations. Of course first aid kits that include a CAT tourniquet should be kept in your Ranger at all times, and a couple MRE’s as well as high-protein foodstuff can give you energy if you become stranded. Water purification tablets and electrolyte tabs will help keep you hydrated, and a bit of whiskey can be used to sterilize wounds. 

    Spark plugs, an extra belt, a fan circuit breaker, wheel bearings, as well as ball joints with new circle clips are good spare parts to have on hand, while things like metric wrenches and socket sets can be used to fix most of the mechanical components of the Ranger. Other tools to bring along on riders include pliers, crescent wrenches, channel locks, and a multi-tool or pocket knife.

    Toilet paper, paper towels, and a carb cleaner are sure to come in handy — even outside of survival situations — and you should always carry a can of starter fluid. Starter fluid can be used in many different ways, be it for popping tires back on their rims, cleaning parts, starting fires, the list goes on and on. 

    A few other suggested items to pack in your emergency kit include super glue, baling wire, electrical wire, and various electric connectors. You can always find a need for duct tape, and waterproof matches as well as lighters are vital for starting fires easily. Finally, bug spray for repelling insects, WD-40 for greasing your machine, and butane for cooking or fire starting are also good to have on hand. 

    In Closing

    The best way to avoid a survival situation is to ride in groups, and the second best way is to insure that you always have a way out, regardless of what happens to you or your machine in the field. However, the unpredictability of the great outdoors is impossible to anticipate. Leave your hubris at home and replace it with the right emergency survival kit in your Polaris Ranger. Do this, and your chances of surviving whatever nature throws at you will be greatly increased. 

  • The Best Stereo Setups For The Polaris Ranger

    So you want to be able to play some tunes in your rig and are curious about the various audio setups available for the Polaris Ranger. But with so many options out there, you might be wondering which system is best? Should you go with a simple soundbar, a stereo roof, a portable stereo? Will a golf cart radio be loud enough for use in the Ranger? Are there ways to sync up my music with my whip lights

    All these questions are valid, and by the end of this blog, you should have a better understanding of the options available for playing music in the Polaris Ranger. Whether you only need something simple to use for FM radio, or you’re wanting to turn your Ranger into a concert stage on wheels, here are our top picks for the best stereo setups for the Polaris Ranger.   

    Wet Sounds Stereo Systems For The Polaris Ranger 

    While Wet Sounds offers a variety of different audio products for both aquatic and terrestrial power-sport vehicles, many Polaris Ranger owners Wet Sounds systems and applaud their products. They offer individual stereo components such as coaxial speakers, tower speakers, amplifiers, and sub woofers, but also provide stereo kits with everything a Ranger owner needs to get their audio system up and bumping.

    In addition to complete systems, they also offer soundbars, and the Wet Sounds Stealth-6 Ultra Soundbar is one that really blasts. It’s not cheap by any means, but it’s compact, sounds great, is bluetooth compatible, and comes with a two-year limited warranty. You might be able to fab up a homemade audio setup that is louder with a little fuller range of sound, but it will likely take up much more space. Furthermore, after you add up the price for speakers, an amp, a bluetooth box, and fiberglass, you’ll be right around the same price as the Ultra 6 Wet Sounds Bar. For something that is simple to use and out of the way, any Wet Sounds soundbar will work. 

    With regards to their wake towers, the Wet Sounds 10s are very well built. Comparing these tower speakers with others — such as the ones by JL or Rockford — is like comparing apples and oranges, as instead of running a traditional tweeter or bullet style system, Wet Sounds uses a compression horn with a separate input, giving it a completely different sound than a tweeter-style tower. Furthermore, many riders like the wakes by Wet Sounds because the require very mild power inputs, yet still sound amazing. 

    Rockford Stereo Systems For The Polaris Ranger

    For a stereo system that is crystal clear, loud, and easy to install, Rockford is hands down one of the best stereo setups you can get for the Ranger. Whether it’s a Rockford Fostgate Stage 1, 2, 3, or 4, you’re sure to get a good sounding system with Rockford. Their kits come with tremendous head units as well as all the wiring needed, and you can choose which and how many pods, speakers, and kickers you want. 

    Their Punch Marine 6.5" Full-Range Speakers are night and day better than other speakers out there. They have better frequency response on the low end — down to 48hz —  as well as a better magnet and tweeter. Additionally, they are made with centrex plastic and are both UV and water resistant. 

    While you cannot criticize the sound quality of a Rockford stereo system, some riders have found issues with their placement in the cab and the color of their speaker grills. However, if you’re less concerned about speaker aesthetics and never use the footstep where some Rockford speakers can be installed, you won’t be disappointed with a Rockford Fostgate stereo system. 

    ProBox Roof Stereos For The Polaris Ranger

    Feedback about the ProBox top stereo setup is hit and miss. Sure the ProBox roof stereo is placed out of the way and is loud enough to wake the dead, but this is definitely overkill for most riders. Plus, because they took away the radio receivers on their newer kits, tuning is difficult, and at loud volumes the audio becomes distorted. This is common with bluetooth controllers, at high volumes they tend to distort. 

    That being said, the ProBox roof radio is a popular option and doesn’t require an alternator to be used in the Ranger. Although most agree that Wet Sounds have a slicker look, ProBox stereo setups offer better bass. 

    Honorable Mentions 

    In closing, here are a few soundbars that we couldn’t, in good conscience, leave out. The Sound Storm btb6 is a quality sound system — not quite a soundbar but occupying a similar space. It hooks right up to your phone or MP3 player, sounds great, and is nice and loud. The VDP sound bar is another simple option. Although they’re known for indoor sound systems, they also make a vehicle-specific sound bar that works great in the Polaris Ranger. And finally, MTX Audio, with their Mudsys 46" soundbar, is another Polaris Ranger sound system that is decent for the money and quite loud, sure to meet and exceed all your expectations!
