  • Polaris RZR Windshield Wipers: What You Must Know

    Some riders are completely fine with half windshields, helmets, and goggles when it's muddy and wet outside, while others choose to coat their full RZR windscreens with things like anti-fog spray and RainX. After all, they argue, if you drive fast enough, water and debris will blow right off your UTV’s windshield. But if you like to stay clean and dry when riding, live in a wet / snowy area, and aren’t particularly fond of blurry or obstructed fields of view, a Polaris RZR windshield wiper kit is the perfect accessory for you. 

    In some places, UTV windshield wipers are a requirement for on-road use. But even if they’re not legally mandated, Polaris RZR windshield wipers are handy to have at the ready. Be it a manual Polaris RZR windshield wiper blade or an electric dual-blade Polaris RZR windshield wiper kit, being able to see clearly when driving a sport side-by-side like the RZR is absolutely crucial. So if you’re on the fence about Polaris RZR windshield wipers, keep reading, because we’re about to evaluate the functionality, ease of installation, and cost of Polaris RZR windshield wiper kits to determine which, if any, stand out from the crowd!

    Polaris RZR Windshield Wiper Kits With Washer Fluid Pumps & Reservoirs

    Not all riders will want, or need, a Polaris RZR windshield wiper kit with sprayers. But for those with polycarbonate windshields, getting a Polaris RZR windshield wiper / washer kit is important. We’ve seen riders who’ve rigged up self-priming transfer pumps which draw water from streams to clean their vehicle's windshield in the field. While this might be excessive to some, if you’re running a polycarbonate windshield, you should have a water pump or handheld sprayer at the very least to flush abrasive dirt and mud from your windshield. 

    If you’re not careful, windshield wipers will scratch your poly windshield worse than a frightened feral cat. Using ample amounts of washer fluid, however, will help to reduce the formation of windshield scratches on your poly, plexi, or Lexan windscreens. Many riders choose to mount windshield washing fluid reservoirs under the hood of their RZR, but you can also place them under the driver’s seat next to the battery, or on the side of your bed / intercooler if you’ve got a secondary battery kit occupying the other half of your battery tray. 

    If your Polaris RZR windshield wiper assembly didn’t come with washer fluid pumps and reservoirs, there are aftermarket squirter systems that you can add separately. Or if you’ve got a glass windshield and require nothing more than a hand-driven wiper blade, companies like SuperATV and Kolpin Outdoors offer cheap yet reliable manual wiper options. 

    Non-Conventional Polaris RZR Windshield Wipers

    Rear window washers / wipers from compact cars like the Ford Escape are often retrofitted to work with UTVs like the Polaris RZR. Visit any junk yard and you’ll likely be able to find a windshield wiper with the swing rotation you want -- as well as a wiper motor to power it. Wiring in such accessories isn’t hard to do -- requiring only a ground wire, a power wire, and a switch. Fabbing up a mounting plate for the motor isn’t difficult either. 

    The hard part of such an approach is mounting the wiper blade to the motor through the windshield. Even with proper tools, drilling through a poly or glass windshield is risky business. And with windshields that cost in excess of 1000 dollars, it might behove you to pay up for a proper Polaris RZR windshield wiper kit in order to avoid destroying your expensive aftermarket windshield

    Final Thoughts On Polaris RZR Windshield Wipers

    Be it a $20 manual windshield wiper; a Polaris RZR windshield wiper kit with a 12v motor, an 18” blade, and a 90-degree wiping path; or a Polaris RZR windshield that comes with a built-in wiper kit, there are several ways to improve your visibility when riding. Laws that make windshield wipers compulsory might be why you’re after a Polaris RZR windshield wiper kit. Or, you could be tired of mud, bugs, dust, and water interfering with your line of sight. Whatever the case may be, if you shop at Everything Polaris RZR, you’re guaranteed to find the perfect Polaris RZR windshield wiper package for you, your machine, and the climate / terrain conditions where you ride!

  • Personalizing Your Polaris RZR Exterior

    If you want to personalize your UTV to achieve a more unique look, if you need your rig to blend in with the surrounding environment, or if you want to match colors / appearances with the other vehicles in your racing team, riding crew, or family, there are many ways to customize the exterior of the Polaris RZR, the RZR 4, the RZR Pro, and the RZR Turbo. Lift kits and aggressive tires can definitely alter the look of your side-by-side, and things like bumpers, fender flares, and extended vent covers will often change the profile of the machine. But if you want to really customize your Razor for a one-of-a-kind appearance, Polaris RZR exterior mods like paint jobs, body wraps, and surface coatings are the way to go. We’ll touch on each of these items / processes below to give you a better understanding of how you can personalize your Polaris RZR Exterior.

    Painting Your Polaris RZR Body Plastics

    One way to revamp the body color of your 4x4 is to simply paint it. This is easier said than done however. Although the painting process itself is relatively quick and painless, the more important part of the procedure -- prep work -- requires a fair bit of care, due diligence, and time. When you’re preparing your bike for a color change, clean, clean again, then clean some more. You can hit your plastics and RZR body panels with a maroon pad, give them a little wet sanding, and wipe them down with Armor All or 1040 oil to help the paint bond better. Take an Emery Cloth to the panels as well to get them as smooth as possible before applying the first coat of adhesion promoter.

    Do a few coats of adhesion promoter, making sure to let each prior coat dry before the next one. After that, you can prime the surfaces, paint them with a color of your choosing, and then apply a finishing clear coat. Things like automotive paint, SEM paint, and Nason’s single stage urethane paint work well on sport utility vehicles like the RZR, just make sure to mix in a flex promoter additive so that the paint doesn’t flake off or chip after years of rough impacts and constant jostling. As long as you do it right, your Polaris RZR paint job should withstand both the tests of time as well as the tribulations of the trail!

    Wrapping Your Polaris RZR

    Things like decal deletes can significantly alter the look of your Polaris RZR’s exterior. But if you want to make a dramatic change to the body of your rig that’ll make both jaws and panties drop, a vinyl wrap is a sound option to go with. Companies like Adventures In Vinyl by Murry Powersports design, create, ship, and install custom vinyl wraps for the Polaris RZR. Polaris RZR body wraps such as these aren’t hard to install, but they do take a bit of time -- especially if you’re inexperienced.

    The good UTV wrap makers out there provide detailed instructions with their wrap kits, and use color-coded templates to make it easy to tell where each piece of the wrap needs to go. Quality wraps are also quite durable, and hold up well against trees, sagebrush, and other off-road hazards. You could have bushes brush up against wrapped doors without leaving scratches, and tree limbs slide over wrapped roofs without leaving gashes. And if something does happen to your wrap job, the company you bought it from should be able to reproduce any part of it for a quick and simple fix. Body stickers are one thing, but if you want a badass bike that looks nothing like the rest, a Polaris RZR wrap will do the trick nicely!

    Finishing Touches For The Polaris RZR Exterior

    Standard cleaning products like Wet Shine, Armor All, and Pledge can give your rig a shiny aesthetic. But if you want your RZR to truly pop, hitting it with wax polishes, ceramic coatings, and high-gloss sprays like SC1 will leave it looking immaculate. And in addition to adding an appealing sheen to your UTV, many of these products also protect and even restore the look and luster of the underlying body panels

    Closing Thoughts On The Polaris RZR Exterior

    Ride your RZR how you want to ride it, go wherever it is that you want to go, and make your RZR look exactly how you want it to look. Although determinists might beg to differ, we believe that human beings were born with an innate right to make their own personal choices. So if you choose to add some style and pizzazz to your Polaris RZR exterior, we will give you nothing but positive encouragement!

  • How To Maintain, Repair, And Replace Your Polaris RZR Differentials

    In the powersports world, you’ve gotta pay to play. And with a Polaris RZR, it seems like the harder you play, the more you must pay. However, regarding Polaris RZR differentials, you can save money in the long run by paying upfront for aftermarket Polaris RZR differentials. Investing incrementally by changing your differential fluid and conducting periodic diff rebuilds where needed will also save you big time in the long run. So whether you’re looking to maintain your Polaris RZR 4 differentials, repair a damaged front or rear Polaris RZR differential, or replace your Polaris RZR differentials completely with upgraded options, spend more time riding and reduce your rig's downtime due to differential issues by heeding the advice of the off-road experts at Everything Polaris RZR!

    Checking And Changing Your Polaris RZR Differential Fluids

    You don’t have to be mud riding to accidently get water inside your Polaris RZR differentials. And if your breather tube isn’t mounted facing downward, something as innocuous as washing your Polaris RZR could push water inside the differentials. A stopped up or punctured differential vent line can also allow moisture infiltration, which makes the periodic checking of your differential fluid a necessary and important thing to do.

    If you check the Polaris RZR service manual, you’ll see that the differential fluids are meant to be changed every 100 hours or 1000 miles. For peace of mind, however, many RZR owners choose to change their machine’s differential and transmission fluid every 50 hours or 500 miles -- the same as the engine oil. How you use your UTV will also affect the wear on your differentials, and if you find yourself riding through mud and water, the periods in which you should check your differentials and change the differential fluid must be shortened. If there are leaks in the differential seals and your differential fluid is milky, rectifying the issues immediately will prevent costly repairs down the line.   

    Fixing Damaged And Sloppy Polaris Ranger Differentials

    Although it might be true that the cups in the front differentials of the Polaris RZR are designed poorly, if you ride with slop in your axles and differentials, things are most definitely going to get worse. While your Polaris RZR differentials should have a small amount of play, they shouldn’t be sloppy in the way a bad wheel bearing is. So if you’re wanting to rebuild your front Polaris RZR differentials to eliminate slop, or if you need to replace your rear Polaris RZR differentials because they’re completely shot, there are many options at one’s disposal other than replacement factory Polaris RZR differentials.

    Direct differential swaps may be possible between RZR editions, but not all RZR differentials are compatible with all RZR models. The 2020 Polaris RZR Trail and Rock edition, for example, has RZR Turbo front diffs and axles in them from the factory, but the gear ratio between the two machines is different, which makes direct differential swaps from one model to the other quite difficult. Similarly, you couldn’t swap an RS1 differential into the former machine because the RS1 has both different gearing as well as a turbo transmission. A 2020 Trail and Rock RZR has the same differential case as an XP turbo, but the ring and pinion aren't the same.

    Instead of doing direct differential swaps, your best bet might just be to upgrade the parts inside your current differential case. If you’re mechanically inclined, a front differential rebuild for the Polaris RZR isn’t too difficult. It could be that your ring and pinion are fine, and you simply broke the differential sprague or cage. But if your diffs are messed up to the extent that a Polaris RZR differential rebuild kit won’t work, then set of aftermarket Polaris RZR differentials could be what you need.

    Aftermarket Polaris RZR Differentials 

    Companies such as SuperATV make great replacement differentials for the Polaris RZR, while front drive systems by firms like Hillard provide semi-locking differentials for on-demand 4WD. And with everything from Polaris RZR differential gear cases, seal kits, and armature plates to differential roll cage spragues, roller kits, and differential bearing replacements for the Polaris RZR, Everything Polaris RZR is also a great place where folks can go to find Polaris RZR differentials and differential-related products!

  • Having Endless Family Fun With The Help Of A Polaris RZR!

    Whether you own the RZR Pro, the RZR Turbo, or the RZR XP 4-door, the Polaris RZR family riding activities you can get involved in using your side-by-side are nearly endless. While action figures, electronics, and gaming consoles are all fine and good for city slickers, the fun adventures and practical life skills learned with family members and friends during UTV rides are all things that you simply cannot obtain with the swipe of a credit card. Be it early-morning fishing trips that yield grill-ready rainbow trout, or visiting historical sights like old mines, ghost cities, and timber camps that are only accessible via off-road vehicles, the amazing family times to be had as well as the stories you’ll make along the way are memories you and your kids will cherish forever! Sure the Polaris RZR can be used for racing, rock crawling, and work-related tasks, but this multi-use machine is also perfect for all sorts of Polaris RZR family riding activities as well!

    Family-Oriented Riding Accessories For The Polaris RZR

    After you christen your machine but before you and your family embark on your first trip, the first thing you should take care of are all the requisite safety measures. Many a paterfamilias choose to augment their RZRs with more robust roll cages, 4-point harnesses, and things like side-by-side fire extinguishers as well as first aid kits for added safety. On top of all that, accessories like UTV helmets for the Polaris RZR are good to invest in as well, while off-road equipment like CB radios, dual-band radios, and handheld radios can also be used to reach out for help during times of distress.

    While multi-rig riding is always an option for large families and off-road communities, and youth-size RZRs are available to put your kids directly behind the wheel, accessories like rear bench seats and Polaris RZR bump seats that go between the two factory RZR seats are perfect for increasing the passenger capacity of your UTV. And when you’re going on extended family camping excursions, cargo-intensive day trips, or simply need more space for all your recreational equipment, storage accessories like roof racks, hitch-mounted cargo trays, and pull-behind utility trailers can carry whatever it is that you need hauled!   

    What To Do During Family Rides

    Once you’ve got your storage, safety, and entertainment accessory needs covered, you’ll be off to the races with your family chomping at the bit to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. Although riding in a side-by-side and getting into nature is a fun activity in and of itself, there are countless ways to use an RZR for family leisure. Picnics and cooking over campfires are popular activities that families can conduct with an RZR, just make sure you’ve got the right UTV cooler to keep your dings cold and prevent your perishables from spoiling. 

    Sightseeing is another pursuit that people can engage in using the Polaris RZR that is fun and entertaining for the entire family. Be it scenic overlooks, natural wonders, or historic monuments, there’s an endless amount of waypoints worth stopping for during rides. You can plan a trip with specific points of interest in mind, or simply start riding and see what you can find along the way. Whether you’re located or wanting to ride in Wisconsin, Texas, Michigan, or Utah, there’s no shortage of spectacular places to visit in a UTV across the continent! Go see some waterfalls, or visit a significant landmark. These are memories that you and your family will never forget!  

    RZR-Related Family Activities

    Some riders like to extract their families from civilization to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the city life. However there are also social UTV- and RZR-related events that are great for families of all ages, sizes, and dispositions. Mud parks, private ORV riding areas, and UTV tracks across the nation often host day-long, weekend, and holiday events with activities ranging from hill climbs, mud runs, and barrel racing, to mini games, raffles, concerts, and guided night rides. So no matter what you’re in to, you and your family can bond, enjoy time together, learn from each other, and make unforgettable memories with the help of a side-by-side like the Polaris RZR! Get out and experience more by partake in some Polaris RZR family riding activities. It really doesn't matter what you do, so long as you and your family do it together!

  • Tires Are Tires, Right?

    We know, we know – everyone wants to look cool. And while aesthetics absolutely are an important part of the UTV riding experience, when it comes to tires, performance is first. With a selection as big as ours, however, one could get vertigo just from scrolling frantically all the way through. That’s why it’s important to have filters when you’re searching for Polaris Rzr tires – both in your mind and within our catalog. What we mean is, the best way to select a Polaris Rzr tire set from Everything Polaris Rzr is to first consider how and where you will be using these bad boys. Even the highest-quality tires will still fall short in terms of power transfer efficiency if they’re used in the wrong environment. In that spirit, we’ve decided to roll out some of our favorites from different usage categories (mud, sand, all-around, and DOT-rated) to help you with this important decision.

    Mud

    Some riders are tourists when it comes to the mud patch, and some UTV nuts live there. If you do find yourself frequently entrenched in sloppy muck, then it might be time to consider a set of mud tires. If that’s your aim, then we can’t tout this Polaris RZR Mudzilla 6-Ply Tire by Maxxis enough. Built with huge tread bars and a mud-specific pattern, these hearty companions will have you double-taking to make sure you’re still in the mud because they perform that well. As with most of our Polaris Rzr tire sets designed for harsh conditions, these 6-ply workhorses come with rim guards to keep that wheel safe. They’re tough, made for mud, and a great value to boot.

    Sand

    Nothing deflates a day of dune-dashing like the wrong set of tires. You may be able to get away with a jaunt or two in the mud with an all-purpose set, but sand is a different beast altogether. Never fear, we have plenty of options for riders who love to play in the sand, like these Polaris RZR 14-Inch EFX Sand Slinger High Performance 4-Ply Tires by EFX Performance Tires. Designed for superior float, optimal grip in the sand, and as always, unparalleled durability, these Polaris RZR sand tires will redefine what your ride can do atop the dunes.

    All-Around

    Of course, many of us ATV enthusiasts don’t have the luxury of specializing in just one type of riding. Whether it’s the environment you ride in, the type of work you do, or both that is taking you through all kinds of diverse terrain, you might need a Polaris Rzr tire set that can handle a little bit of everything. For this scenario, we’ve got industry-leading solutions like these Polaris RZR Switchback Tires by Moose always on hand. These all-purpose tires come in 6- or 8-ply, and they’re made with a versatile tread pattern as well as an extra-wide footprint to provide superior traction and stability in any situation.

    DOT-Rated

    Finally, if it’s street legal status that you’re after, you will likely have to get a set of DOT-rated tires (it depends on local jurisdiction requirements, but tires are often included). If that’s the case, these Polaris RZR Gripper RT 10-Ply Radial Tires by Fuel Off-Road will do much more than simply check the box. With superior tread design, durability, and wheel protection capabilities, these DOT-rated studs just might become your favorite, regardless of requirements. Did we mention they look amazing?

    Terrain isn’t the only factor in determining which type of tire you should go with, but it’s definitely up there. Of course, overall durability and value also matter a great deal, but thankfully, we don’t feature a tire of any type unless it already checks those boxes. So, set your filter for terrain and shop in confidence knowing you’re getting top-tier tires of all kinds at Everything Polaris Rzr, because if it’s not at that level, we don’t have it!

  • Everything Polaris RZR Reaches New Heights

    The ever-increasing practicality of side-by-sides in conjunction with new features, more options, and greater versatility has not only persuaded existing Polaris RZR owners to upgrade their machines, but it has also convinced non-UTV owners to jump headfirst into the off-road lifestyle. And as these newly-christened side-by-sides make their way into the homes and hearts of riders around the world, the ballooning demand for aftermarket Polaris RZR accessories increases in lockstep. The thrill seekers can now go faster, the adventurers can now go further, and the leisure riders can now ride with friends and family knowing that their safety and well-being won’t be compromised. And despite all the differences between these disparate riding groups exists a central commonality, and that is the need for sound advice, proper user guidance, and high-quality products at affordable prices. Because Everything Polaris RZR provides all these things and much more, it has sustained unprecedented rates of growth over the past few years.

    In fact, Everything Polaris RZR’s parent company, Gear Up 2 Go, ranked number 1,965 on Inc. Magazine’s list of the Top 5,000 Fastest Growing Private Companies in America during 2020, an accolade that is attributable to several key factors. Sector-wide changes such as manufacturers producing UTVs with greater passenger capacity has helped the industry broaden its target customer base. Instead of being an individual activity for diehard motor heads and adrenaline junkies, riding off-road Utility Terrain Vehicles is now something the everyday family man or woman can enjoy. Plus, through deregulations on the city, county, and state levels, the increasing on-road legalization of UTVs has led to them being used more and more as commuter vehicles and day-to-day transportation machines. Add to this features such as in cab heating / cooling, top-of-the-line speakers and stereo systems, and all the creature comforts you might find in a car or truck, and it’s little wonder why Polaris RZR sales are surging.

    In addition to our customer-centric methodology and steadfast commitment to helping Everything Polaris RZR users customize their Polaris Razors in a multitude of ways, another thing that sets us apart from the competition is our broad approach to aftermarket side-by-side customizations. Some retailers focus exclusively on speed riders, while others stick to selling parts for sand and mud riders. At Everything Polaris RZR, however, we provide products for everyone from hunters and outdoorsmen to trail riders and competitive racers. Whether you ride desert dunes, steep mountains, or thick peanut butter mud, we’ve got the domain-specific parts, components, and accessories you require to dominate on any terrain!

    Ever since the company’s founding over a decade ago, our mission has always been to provide the maximum amount of benefits to the maximum number of riders at the lowest possible cost. And under the guidance of Michael Lutes, we’ve been able to adhere to this mission through thick and thin. In his own words, Mr. Lutes was recorded saying that, “I am so proud of the amazing team we have built!  Our company is made up of 50+ people that come in every day and give 110% to serve our customers and make Gear Up 2 Go a better place to work! We have a management team that is out of this world and this award is a testament to their leadership.  Our company is not big into awards but what we are into is surpassing our customer's expectations, and this is just a recognition of that, which we are all very proud of." 

    Awards and accolades are great, but they pale in comparison to the amazing feedback we’ve received from our valued customers. As off-road enthusiasts ourselves, we love sharing our passion and helping others realize the tremendous joys that can be had from owning a Polaris RZR! 

  • Buyer's Guide: Factory Specs For The Polaris RZR Tire Size, Wheel Size, Wheel Offset, And Bolt Pattern

    For first-time UTV owners, the amount of information there is to learn about Polaris RZR tires and wheels can seem overwhelming at first. Even experienced riders may not hold all there is to know about RZR tires and rims in the forefront of their minds at all times. But regardless of the particular Polaris RZR year and edition that you own, be it an RZR Turbo, RZR Pro, RZR XP, or anything else, there are a few Polaris RZR stock tire and wheel specs that you should know when making considerations about adjusting, augmenting, or modifying your machine. Furthermore, if you’re simply looking into replacement factory RZR tires / wheels, a spare tire for your RZR, or stock-style Polaris RZR lug nuts, knowing the pertinent details about your side-by-side will save you from getting the wrong parts, replacements, and aftermarket upgrades!  

    Stock Rim Bolt Pattern For The Polaris RZR Lineup

    Aside from the youth-size Polaris RZR 170 — which has a bolt pattern of 4/110 — all other Polaris RZR editions have a wheel bolt pattern of 4/156. This includes both the Polaris RZR 1000 and RZR 4 1000, as well as the RZR XP Turbo, the RZR Pro XP, and the 800, 900, and 570 RZR models. Even the one-seater Polaris RS1 uses a 4/156 bolt pattern, which greatly simplifies things with consistency across almost all Razor vehicles. While you can use wheel adapters to fit non-conforming rims onto your RZR, with so many options available, why would you?

    Stock Lug Nut Specs For The Polaris RZR Lineup

    There are two main variations of stock lug nut sizes that Polaris uses for its RZR-branded side-by-sides — with the RZR 170 again being the outlier and using 10mm x 1.25 lug nuts. Vehicles like the Polaris RZR 1000, Polaris RZR Turbo, and Polaris RS1 have stock lug nuts that measure 12mm x 1.5, while vehicles such as the 2011-2014 Polaris RZR 900 and RZR 4 900 as well as the RZR 800, RZR S 800 and RZR 570 have stock lug nuts that measure 3/8” x 24 — with the latter number indicating that there are 24 threads for every inch of length. 

    If you’re running aftermarket rims, you will likely need to use thin-wall lug nuts or spline-drive lug nuts, because even if the lugs themselves fit through the rims, you might not be able to fit a socket around them to ensure proper tightness. 

    Stock Tire And Wheel Sizes For The Polar RZR Lineup

    The Polaris RZR 1000, Polaris RZR 4 1000, Polaris RS1, and Polaris RZR XP Turbo all come stock with the same size tires and wheels, which measure 29x9-14 in the front and 29-11-14 in the rear. The first number set is the diameter and width of the tire -- measured in inches -- and the second number is the diameter of the rim. For the 2011-2014 Polaris RZR 900 and four-door RZR 900, the stock tire and rim size is 27x9-12 in the front, and 27x11-12 in the rear — although some models come stock with wider 27x12-12 rear tires. 

    As one might expect, the stock Polaris RZR tire and rim size gets smaller as you progress downward on the horsepower scale. The Polaris RZR 800 and 800 S come with 26x9-12 front tires and wheels, and 26x12-12 rear tires and wheels (however some models have 27” stock tires). Moving down the CC ladder even further, the Polaris RZR 570 comes stock with 25x8-12 fronts and 25x10-12 rears, while the youth-size RZR 170 has 19x7-8 front rims and tires with 20x10-9 rear rims and tires.  

    When comparing stock Polaris RZR tire and wheel sizes to those of aftermarket RZR tires and wheels, it should be noted that some run slightly smaller in diameter, while others run true to size. A set of 28” Roctane tires, for example, will be noticeably taller than a set of 29” Bighorn tires, whereas a set of aired-down 30” Terrabite tires will measure in at around 28-3/4” at 12psi.

    Stock Wheel Offset For The Polaris RZR Lineup

    The factory Polaris RZR rims measure at 5.44 + 0.56, giving them a stock offset of 6+1 or 5+2. The offset your Polaris RZR wheels have is the length from the mounting surface on the hub to the centerline of the wheel. The hub mounting surface on rims with no offset are flush with the wheel’s centerline, whereas wheels with a negative offset are extended further outward, and wheels with a positive offset are positioned further inward underneath the vehicle.  

    If you’re considering Polaris RZR wheels with non-stock offsets or backspacing, remember that when you alter the offset, you also change the inclination of the king pin, which will affect the handling of your UTV. A 4+3 offset, for example, will give you a lot of feedback through the steering wheel, making your steering system feel heavier. A 4+3 wheel offset will also put more stress on the steering components and wheel bearings. Because of this, we’d suggest sticking as close to stock as possible. After all, there’s a reason why Polaris chose to use the backspacing that they do!

    Closing Remarks

    A large number of riders choose to deviate from Polaris RZR stock tire and wheel specs. And with accessories like wheel spacers, lift kits, rim adapters, and forward a-arms, the ability to alter the size and style of your Polaris RZR tires and wheels has become increasingly easy to do. We’re not suggesting that swapping out your stock tires and rims is a bad idea, but rather, we are simply recommending that you do a bit of research before altering your stock Polaris RZR tires and wheels!

  • Rough Country’s Top 3 Best-Selling Polaris RZR Accessories

    Trusting the marketing team of a company is one thing. But when it comes to aftermarket accessories for the Polaris RZR, it’s much better to get your information from actual riders. And while we could spout praises and platitudes about the off-road firm Rough Country all day long, we will instead pass along our insider information about the popularity of their products. We do live in a democracy after all, and what’s more democratic than allowing people to vote with their hard-earned dollars. 

    Take what you read at face value, and place your trust in the experiences of riders who have put the various accessories by Rough Country to the test in real-life situations. In some cases, groupthink and herd mentality can adversely affect the sense making apparatus of populations. But in other cases, leveraging the knowledge and experience of the crowd can lead to maximum benefits for all. So, based on our metrics, here are the top three most popular Rough Country-Branded Polaris RZR accessories.

    Number 1: Rough Country’s Polaris RZR 4,500 Lb Electric Winch

    Although racers often steer clear of winches due to weight reasons, almost all trail riders use Polaris RZR winches in some form or another. And this is one of the reasons why Rough Country’s 4,500 Lb Polaris RZR winch is so popular. Their waterproof UTV winch is compatible with synthetic winch lines, which not only have an optimized strength-to-weight ratio, but also don’t rust or corrode like steel winch lines do. The powerful 1.4 horsepower motor within the Rough Country’s 4,500 Lb winch may not seem like a lot, but when coupled with the winch’s 166:1 gear reduction ratio and differential planetary gear train, the end result is a winch that can power through the toughest of situations to come out the other end victorious! 

    Compared to other Polaris RZR winches of similar size and quality, Rough Country’s 4,500 Lb electric winch is competitively priced, easy to install, and extremely long-lasting. You can use it to recover your bike from over four feet of peanut-butter mud in the morning, then use it to lift your machine so you can wash underneath it when you get back home. And  because the winch comes with a clevis hook, a hawse fairlead, and all the requisite hardware and wire harnesses, all you need is a mount and you’re good to go! 

    Number 2: Rough Country’s Whip Lights And Whip Light Mounts For The Polaris RZR

    Safety is a high priority for most Polaris RZR owners. And to stay visible during night rides, a larger number of riders choose to install Rough Country’s LED whip lights. Like many whip light sets out there for the Polaris RZR, the 4-foot tall LED whips by Rough Country are waterproof, flexible, and dimmable as well. You can adjust the brightness level, but also the light pattern. If you’re feeling like some strobing effects, you can make it happen. Or if you’d rather have your whips fade, swirl, or flash in every color of the rainbow, the Rough Country whip lights allow for that as well.

    The quick-release bases that are included with Rough Country’s whip light kits are one of the contributing factors that distinguishes them from the competition. If you’re storing your UTV in the garage over winter, hauling it across state lines in an enclosed trailer, or riding wooded trails with low-hanging branches, you can quickly and effortlessly remove the whip lights. Then, when you’re off to the dunes or a nearby ORV park, you can throw them back on just as easily. On the other hand, you can also fix your whips to the ROPS of your bike with Rough Country's whip light roll cage mounting kit!

    Number 3: Rough Country’s Ultra-Wide Rear View Mirror For The Polaris RZR

    Whether a rear-view mirror is required by law so that you can legally ride your Razor on public roads, or if you do a lot of reversing and need something for better rearward visibility, Rough Country’s rear-view Polaris RZR mirror has been chosen by riders as one of the company’s most popular RZR products. The curvature of Rough Country’s rear-view mirror is such that you can see at an extremely wide angle without the image being distorted. This is important for accurately estimating distances, where concave mirrors make objects appear further than they actually are. 

    In addition to having a surface that reflects the real world in an accurate manner, the rear-view Polaris RZR mirror by Rough Country is also extremely robust, made with a reinforced face and a strong aluminum frame. Because of this, it doesn’t rattle, shake, or vibrate, nor does it bounce around after you set it to an angle that best suits your needs. 

    Ending Thoughts

    The point of branding is to give consumers reliable insight into a company before they pull the trigger on one of their products or services. And with nearly a half century of showing the world what they’re capable of, Rough Country has had ample time to prove themselves to even the harshest of critics. And although the list of accessories mentioned above are their best-selling products through Everything Polaris RZR, it should by no means detract from their other great Polaris RZR accessories. But you don’t have to trust us or even other riders. Try a Rough Country product on your rig and make the decision for yourself!

  • The Best Polaris RZR Accessories For Wintertime Riding

    Most Polaris RZR owners come out to play during the warmer spring, summer, and fall seasons. However winter riding is not only possible but both fun and practical as well. While some riders use the Polaris RZR to plow snow or access their cabin during winter, others simply enjoy getting out and tearing up the snow-packed trails. But regardless of whether you’re wanting to conduct work or organize recreational rides during winter, a few key accessories can go a long way in making your cold-weather rides more efficient and enjoyable. So here they are, the best Polaris RZR accessories for winter riding! 

    Accessories For Staying Warm In The Polaris RZR

    An obvious Polaris RZR accessory for wintertime riding is a heater unit. Not only will the Inferno, Firestorm, and other Polaris RZR heaters help to keep you nice and toasty, but with features like upward-facing defroster vents, they’ll also ensure that your visibility isn’t impeded if you’re using a full front windshield. Speaking of windshields, not all Polaris RZR windshields are made to handle the cold.

    For wintertime situations, half windshields are out of the question. To prevent your face from freezing, a full windshield is essential. In terms of insulation, glass Polaris RZR windshields are much better at trapping in heat than polycarbonate windshields. Plus, with a glass windshield, you can run hand-operated or electric windshield wipers to clear snow from your field of view without having to worry about scratches or scrapes. 

    In a similar vein, full Polaris RZR cab enclosures are also great for winter riding. If you’ve got the four-door RZR, your backseat passengers may not benefit as much from a front-only UTV heating unit. And even with your heater at full blast, without a complete cab enclosure system, the heat generated dissipates almost instantaneously — especially when temperatures dip below zero. 

    If you’ve got the money, accessories like heated seats or heated steering wheels can add an element of luxury to your ride. But even without such creature comforts, with a Polaris RZR heater, a full cab enclosure, and a cab enclosure seal kit to make your cabin airtight, you’ll be sitting comfortably in your rig during the coldest of winter days!

    Maintaining Traction On Ice And Snow

    For RZR owners that are serious about wintertime riding, Polaris RZR tracks are an option. In order to run snow tracks properly, however, gear reductions should be installed. But even without tracks, you can still get phenomenal traction on the ice and snow with Polaris RZR snow tires. 

    Extra-wide tires like the Wite Out set by Pro Armor are great for snow riding, but they’re a bit heavy (which can be hard on your driveline) and pretty expensive (which can be hard on your wallet). If you ride primarily in deep and fluffy snow, some extreme mud tires with deep and aggressive tread patterns will suit you well. And for hard-packed roads or icy trails, some Firestone Winterforce car tires or winter LT tires will work on the RZR, RZR 4, and RZR Turbo. If, however, you want to stick with your stock tires or if you can’t afford to upgrade tires, some chains can be used to give your rig more traction on ice and snow.

    Accessories For Riding Deep Snow

    Your best bet for deep snow riding is to install Polaris RZR tracks. However, things like high-clearance a-arms and lift kits will not only allow you to run bigger tires, but also prevent you from becoming high centered. Snorkel kits are also smart to have when riding powder. Snow can get into your air box, intakes, and other components pretty easily after a fresh dump. And when it turns into water after melting, snow can cause serious harm to your RZR’s internals. Accordingly, Polaris RZR snorkels are advised for those who rip hard in the deep stuff.

    Polaris RZR Ice Fishing Accessories

    A popular hobby of many wintertime RZR riders is ice fishing. To carry pop-up ice fishing huts, ice augers, and fishing poles, RZR storage racks or bed extenders are almost obligatory. Alternatively, a simple Polaris RZR hitch and ball setup can be used to pull ski-mounted trailers as well as decked-out ice fishing huts. 

    Snow Wheeling On Snowmobile Trails

    Many trail systems in the US are open during the winter, and snowmobile clubs / associations have worked for years to lobby for and develop wintertime trails. Many of these groomed trail systems, however, don’t permit ORVs like the Polaris RZR. Mixed-use winter trails exist, but when you take a wheeled vehicle on snowmobile-only trails, you’ll not only cause damage to the snowpack — creating deep ruts that are extremely hazardous to other drivers — but you could also be fined for doing so.

    Closing Thoughts

    Having a vehicle like the Polaris RZR that can be used year-round is great. You can use them to access remote areas for hunting and fishing, use them to plow snow, or use them for the pure enjoyment of riding. But before you go out on a mid-December ride, make sure your rig is equipped with all the wintertime accessories to make it both safe and enjoyable!

  • Getting To Know Rough Country And Their Offerings For The Polaris RZR Lineup

    As we endeavor to expand our ever-increasing lineup of reputable Polaris RZR accessory providers, we are proud to announce the addition of Rough Country to our roster. With a longstanding tradition of providing quality gear, upgrades, components, and kits for a wide variety of off-road vehicles, Rough Country’s RZR-specific accessories are among the best in the business. Their light bars are exceptionally powerful yet efficient, while their winch offerings for the Polaris RZR are top-of-the-line. Through competence, quality workmanship, and an unbridled sense of pride and enthusiasm, Rough Country is able to play in an entirely different league than many other side-by-side part providers. So let’s dig a little deeper and peel back the layers that make Rough Country the leading Powersports company that it is.

    Rough Country Light Setups For The Polaris RZR

    From lifestyle products to performance-grade accessories and upgrades, Rough Country’s offerings for the Polaris RZR, the RZR Turbo, and the RZR Pro truly run the gamut. And although many of their Polaris RZR lighting products will work equally well with other UTV brands as well as Jeeps, dune buggies, and pickup trucks, there is little doubt surrounding the efficacy of their off-road lighting solutions. 

    For those looking to run Polaris RZR light bars, few options exist that can match the Rough Country units. Their low-profile, single-row light bar for the Polaris RZR mounts exceptionally well below the vehicle's roof, and it matches the RZR headlights to the letter with its black backing. Compared to other high-end light bars, the ones by Rough Country are far more affordable. And when you juxtapose their light output with run-of-the-mill double-row Amazon special light bars, the difference is undeniable. 

    Rough Country offers light bars in multiple sizes, ranging from 8 inches to 50 inches. And like their light bars, the cube lights, headlights, and interior lights they offer are also superior in terms of aesthetics, performance, and build quality. If you want a front Polaris RZR grille with built-in LEDs, Rough Country makes them. Or if you’re after some Polaris RZR whip light mounts, Rough Country fabricates those as well.  

    You can use their fasteners, bolts, screws, and brackets to fix a 30” Slimline light bar onto your Ram 2,500, move it to the front of your F250 a year later, then stick it on your RZR 1000 a year after that. And with solid daylight running lamps, you’ll be looking good and ready to ride in both the daytime and the night! 

    Miscellaneous Rough Country Accessories For The Polaris RZR

    Although Rough Country is more well known for their lights and suspension lifts, they also provide many ancillary side-by-side accessories for the Polaris RZR. Some of the RZR accessories they offer --  like wheel spacers, receiver hitches, bed tie-down kits, and rearview mirrors -- can also be used on other UTVs. However their RZR-specific frame stiffener gussets for the 2014-2021 Polaris RZR 1000 XP, their molded roofs for the 2015-2021 RZR 900 / 1000, and their full / half polycarbonate windshields for the RZR 900, 1000 S, and RZR Turbo are exclusive to the Polaris RZR line of sport side-by-sides. 

    For storage, they have custom-fit Polaris RZR cargo boxes. And for wintertime riding, they’ve got hidden fan heaters that can produce up to 16,000 BTUs. Be it stiffer springs, stronger winches, or anything in between, when you buy from a company like Rough Country, you know that no corners were cut and nothing was overlooked.  

    Final Thoughts

    By leveraging their expertise in off-road vehicles across the board, Rough Country has been able to do for the Polaris RZR what other companies haven’t. They can draw from a deep knowledge base, convert this know-how into actionable manufacturing techniques, and then use these proprietary fabrication methods to deliver exceptional parts, products, and accessories for the Polaris RZR lineup. And for these reasons as well as many more, we are thrilled to be among the select group of retailers that help to bring Rough Country products to the world!
