With a vehicle as powerful as the Mid-Size Polaris Ranger, excess radiant heat can be a problem. And when your Mid-Size Polaris Ranger is souped up with all the best aftermarket upgrades and accessories, radiant heat can be even more of a problem. Radiant heat can make its way into your Mid-Size Polaris Ranger’s cab, creating a sweaty and uncomfortable riding experience. Even worse, radiant heat can build up in certain parts and components of your Mid-Size Polaris Ranger, creating the potential for dangerous burns. Exhausts and mufflers are a great example of this. Upgrading your Mid-Size Polaris Ranger with an aftermarket exhaust is a great way to unlock big gains in engine performance, but this comes with the unintended side effect of extra heat.
If you’ve ever burned yourself on a scalding hot side by side exhaust or muffler, you don’t need us to tell you how painful this can be. Luckily, there’s a way to avoid this happening to you on your Mid-Size Polaris Ranger. If you’re going to be upgrading your Mid-Size Polaris Ranger with a fancy new aftermarket exhaust or muffler, you’ll want to consider also ordering a UTV heat shield like the Mid-Size Polaris Ranger Muffler/Exhaust Heat Shield Kit by Design Engineering. This exhaust and muffler heat shield is made from 10mil dimpled aluminum with a 1/8" needle glass insulator and is designed to prevent heat from making its way into your Mid-Size Polaris Ranger’s interior.
Another great way to reduce heat and avoid burns from your Mid-Size Polaris Ranger’s exhaust is to use exhaust heat wraps like the Mid-Size Polaris Ranger Exhaust Wrap by Design Engineering. This heat wrap is simple and easy to apply to your exhaust and is designed to reduce heat by 50%. It’s rated to handle 1200°F of direct heat and 2000°F of radiant heat. We have plenty of colors to choose from, so you can have your exhaust heat wrap match the color scheme of your Mid-Size Polaris Ranger. Find all the best UTV heat shields and heat wraps for your Mid-Size Polaris Ranger right here at Everything Polaris Ranger!
From exhaust heat shields and engine heat shields to UTV heat shields for reducing in-cab heat, Everything Polaris Ranger is the place to go for all sorts of Polaris Ranger Mid-Size heat shields. Polaris has issued recalls over heat shield issues in the past, and things like exhaust leaks caused by bad exhaust donut gaskets can also lead to heat-related issues. In some cases, missing or damaged Polaris Ranger Mid-Size heat shields can result in melted plastic. But even if the unshielded areas of your rig don't get hot enough to melt, they can still transfer a significant amount of heat into the cabin. While this might be great for those who live and ride in cold climates, it is brutal for those in warmer regions. So if your factory Polaris Ranger Mid-Size heat shielding keeps developing cracks, if you're missing a heat shield in a particular location, or if you want to add aftermarket heat shields, heat shield mats, or heat reduction tape to your vehicle, we've got everything you need to insulate and protect your side-by-side here at Everything Polaris Ranger!
If your bike is running too lean, the exhaust will likely overheat. And although you can add heat shields to prevent the heat from affecting the surrounding components, a better solution is to get an aftermarket ECU tuner to enrich the machine's fuel mapping. With regards to engine heat, many riders choose to install heat shielding designed for firewalls on cars, while others go for UTV-specific heat shielding, which can be riveted onto the body of the buggy with fender washers. In addition to preventing heat-related damage, heat shields for the Polaris Ranger Mid-Size will also block noise. So if your UTV is a bit too loud for your liking and you want to muffle the racket and clamor below the hood, the heat shielding we sell can do just that. Whether the plastic bulkhead behind your rear seat has warped in the middle and caused the metal heat shield on the dump body to catch, or if you're after some aftermarket Polaris Ranger Mid-Size heat shields to make summer rides more comfortable, Everything Polaris Ranger has all you'll need for any project or repair job!
