When it comes to replacement UTV parts and aftermarket accessory replacements from everyday wear and tear on your Polaris Ranger Crew, getting the right warranty can save you a lot of money. The 2019 Ranger 1000s come with factory 12-month warranty now instead of 6 months like they did in the past. But if you want to extend your warranty, we usually suggest going to an insurance company. While you can go with a Polaris warranty for your side by side if you have a good shop to trust, Polaris warranties dictate that you must use Polaris-branded factory parts for all replacements and repairs. With aftermarket warranty programs, however, you can really spice things up with the replacement Crew parts. Besides, we’ve heard of ample horror stories here at Everything Polaris Ranger about people and extended protection plans. In many cases -- in fact almost all cases -- the initial claim gets denied. Polaris sends one of their representatives out to look at the side by side, and basically, your dealer becomes your advocate. And even when replacement parts on the Ranger Crew end up being covered, the time it takes to get the job done can be excessively lengthy. We’ve heard stories from a few riders about people being without their rigs for three, five, and even eight months waiting for a decision from Polaris. If you think buying one of these warranty plans will be magic and free way to quickly fix your Ranger and get all of your replacement part needs to be taken care of, you are sadly mistaken.
Even if you don’t have an extended warranty for your side by side, there are still some relatively cheap options to replace specific parts on your Polaris Ranger Crew without having to replace entire components, systems, or assemblies. Say, for example, you were driving forward in your tricked out Ranger Crew while in posi mode and you hear a strange sound coming from your side by side. A likely cause of this sound is that your turf mode gears blew. We’ve heard of riders swapping out a broken transmission on a Polaris Ranger Crew for a HighLifter transmission -- which comes with deleted turf mode, lower gears, and a better reverse chain. If you don’t want to replace the entire transmission, another great option is to swap in an RZR spool to delete turf mode. But if you go this route, be sure to clean everything off real good and check for cracks around the case. Although it can happen, it's quite rare for the turf mode to go out and not crack the case along with it. And while you're replacing the spool, we’d also suggest upgrading to an urban reverse chain too while you’ve got the transmission out and apart. It's the next weak link in the system.
