Another question that gets thrown around a lot vis-a-vis the Full-Size Polaris Ranger is, “Which body style do I have and how can I tell the difference?”. This is an important question and its implications extend far beyond aesthetics. Many accessories and aftermarket parts are made for specific body styles. So if you buy one made for the older Full-Size body style, it won’t work for the newer Full-Size body style. The distinction is relatively simple. The XP & 800 body styles have a round tube cab and roll cage, while the 900 & non-XP have a pro-fit cage and cab. So, for example, if your 2016 Polaris Ranger Full-Size 570 has a round roll cage, it is the 800 body style. But why did Polaris go back to the 800 body on the 2017 570 Full-Size? From our understanding, they had a surplus of 800 bodies in storage and the 900/1000 assembly lines were reaching capacity. Therefore, by dropping the 570 XP and using the excess 800 bodies on newer machines like the 570 FS, they were able to free up room on the newer assembly lines and use up excess stock, creating a lower-cost machine that competed less with the 900 and 1000 models. Regardless of the reasoning behind particular body style decisions, if you’re confused about what will and will not work with your Full-Size Polaris Ranger body, feel free to contact us with any questions and we’ll help you sort through it!
