  • 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!

  • Which Polaris RZR Accessories are best for Rocky Trails?

    The Polaris RZR was built with the adrenaline-seeking enthusiast in mind, and while that often speaks to the need for speed, the riders looking to reach new heights weren’t forgotten in the process. As enthusiasts are aware, steep rides and bumpy trails are a cakewalk for the Polaris RZR. However, despite the already-capable machine, there are plenty of parts and accessories that can aid riders while embarking on a heart-pumping climb up a trail.

    Polaris RZR 900/ XP 1000/ XP Turbo Front Suspension Frame Support by SuperATV

  • Breaking: New Info On The 2021 Polaris RZR Lineup

    Speculators be damned! The 2021 Polaris RZR model release has dropped, and all the information about the newest lineup of RZR vehicles is now available. Upon first glance, the changes and updates may appear to be marginal. And although the basic platform remains consistent with what we saw in previous years, Polaris did make a few changes to their 2021 RZR lineup. So what’s new exactly? Let’s find out.

    Aesthetic Changes To The 2021 Polaris RZR Lineup

    When perusing through the 2021 editions of the Polaris RZR XP, the RZR Pro, and the RZR 4, the first thing you’ll probably notice is the new color schemes. In addition to some trim enhancements, Polaris also introduced colors like Sport Performance Red, Premium Onyx Black, and Ultimate Matte Titanium Metallic. The 2021 RZR XP 1000 Trails and Rocks edition comes in only one color, which is perfect for those that suffer from choice anxiety. And with the Lifted Lime color on the 2021 Polaris RZR Turbo S, one can’t help but to think that the engineers heard “highlighter” instead of “High Lifter”. But aside from the decals and color changes, Polaris did make some functional improvements to their 2021 RZR fleet.

    What Changes Were Made To The 2021 Polaris RZR?

    For the taller guys out there struggling with their harnesses on the RZR 4-seater Turbo, the harness bar on the 2021 version is higher up above the seat. It is unclear at this point whether they’re still using Subzero harnesses, or if they switched over to Click 6 harnesses, but what is clearly evident based on the released photos is that the harness bar is positioned higher. 

    Aside from changing the name “Base” to “Sport” and getting rid of the wider 72” RZR Pro models, Polaris decided to put the Pro XP clutches in the regular 2021 XP Turbo and Turbo S editions. The tender springs on the 2021 Polaris RZR Pro XP were also updated, giving riders improved suspension and a plusher ride compared to the older spring versions.    

    Moving on to interior upgrades, Ride Command and Rockford Audio systems are now standard in the 2021 RZR Pro XP Premium, and changes were made to the new factory heating units as well. Speaking of new factory accessories, improved aluminum doors, upper doors, and rear light bars are also optional additions one can request on their 2021 RZR.     

    From the images released by Polaris, one can make some conjectures about the 2021 Polaris RZRs. Aside from different colors on the seats, the basic interior of the 2021 RZR appears to be the same as previous years. And although the headers might suggest that changes were made to the engine, this appears not to be the case. What we do know, however, is that lighter stock wheels are going to be included, rear shock guards are going to be added, and a new air intake material is going to be used to improve cooling. 

    Closing Thoughts On The 2021 Polaris RZR

    For some, the alterations made to the 2021 Polaris RZR lineup may be insufficient to make them to upgrade. After all, aftermarket clutches are available for better shifting, aftermarket wheels are easy to come by for less unsprung weight, and aftermarket wraps can be installed for exterior aesthetics. While bold new graphics and a trickle charging port might entice a few RZR owners to update, the lack of rebates could push others to older models of the RZR. At the end of the day, the only opinion that matters is your own. And if you’ve got the funds to pop on a 2021 Polaris RZR, don’t be afraid to send it. Whatever you decide, however, just remember that when in doubt, throttle it out! 

  • The Flip Side of Fun: Let’s Talk Polaris RZR Maintenance

    It’s a pleasant delusion we all love to entertain when we’re bouncing along the trail or skating across the dunes – I don’t need to take her into the garage, she’s running just fine! 

    Well, if you wait until something falls off on your Polaris RZR before you attempt any maintenance, then we’ve got a problem. Yes, we’d all rather be out there in the sun than in the garage tinkering, but with the right practices and gear by your side, you can make Polaris RZR maintenance a virtually painless task. We’ll break down our top maintenance tips by gear type. Here we go!

    Fluids – It may sound like Polaris RZR maintenance 101, but regular oil changes are absolutely essential when it comes to preventing dips in performance and premature wear. That’s why we always keep our Polaris RZR Oil Change Kit by Kolpin in stock. The same goes for all other fluids relevant to regular operation of your vehicle, of course, including coolant. If you’re noticing some gel-like material forming in your coolant, then you’re due to change it out. 

    Bearings and Joints – Keep your bearings and joints well lubricated, and they will repay you tenfold with an extended life of smooth performance. The list of “usual suspects” in terms of items in this department that wear the fastest include the joints themselves, bearings, and bushings. Inspecting this hardware on a regular basis is sure to pay off in performance. If you do happen to lose a bearing, or if you just want to take it to the next level, check out these Polaris RZR 570 Rear Wheel Bearings by Quad Logic.  

    Tires – A kick here and an eyeballing there may suffice for a regular automobile, but the high demands placed on the Polaris RZR require more active maintenance when it comes to tires. In other words, check the air pressure regularly. The earlier you can catch a problem with your tires or CV boots, the cheaper it will be to fix. Looking for a tire that will look tough and perform even tougher? Then we’ve got a seriously studly set for you by Stiand Maxxis.  

    Filters – Never has there been a greater contrast between Polaris RZR maintenance and regular vehicle maintenance than in the case of the air filter. As a fact of life, your UTV filter will get much dirtier, much faster than your conventional vehicle. This means more frequent checking to avoid performance drops. High-quality hardware never hurts in this department, either. Flimsy and conventional filters simply won’t do if you’re on the dunes, which is why we highly recommend this Polaris RZR 1000 Air Filter by Quad Logic. 

    Brakes – It’s obviously difficult to overstate the importance of properly functioning brakes, in Polaris RZR maintenance and all other vehicles. Set some time aside to inspect how thick that pad is, and don’t forget to inspect the lines and fluid as well. Even if you rode recently, it will just take a second or two to do a quick brake check before you start really pushing the pedal down.

    The more frequently you take these steps, the less total time you will spend dealing with Polaris RZR maintenance issues. It sounds like a paradox at first, but think about it. What takes longer to deal with: a small repair or a full replacement?  

  • How to Keep your Polaris RZR Rust-free

    If you live in an area of the country that experiences moist or wet conditions, chances are you’re already aware of what causes rust on your vehicles, and how you can prevent it from happening. If not, you’ll want to pay attention and read through this article in its entirety. Doing so could save your unit from extensive damage while saving you thousands in repair costs.

    Rust not only threatens to ruin the aesthetic of your RZR; over time, it may compromise the structural integrity of your frame and cause irreparable damage. It can also impact the functionality of important components on your vehicle, such as your brakes, which could make your unit dangerous to operate.

    Of course, no one wants this to happen to their unit, right? So how can you prevent it?

    There are dozens of best practices you can follow to prevent rust from damaging your Polaris RZR. Below are just a few that can help you protect your UTV easily and efficiently. 

    Store your unit away from moisture

    This is perhaps the best thing any UTV owner can do to protect their investment. Storing your Polaris RZR in a dry, enclosed area will prevent it from succumbing to the damage that moisture can bring. A garage or shed are perfect options. Anything that will protect your unit from the elements is helpful in preventing rust formation.

    Clean your unit when riding near salt

    Those of you in the colder states already know this: salt is damaging. You should try to clean your unit immediately following your rides, but that is a must if you ride anywhere with salt on the roads. 

    Depending where you live and ride, you may pick up moisture or salt from the roads that could be damaging to your unit if left alone for too long. So long as the temperatures are not too low or below freezing, your best bet is to clean thoroughly with a hot water pressure washer. Be sure to get the undercarriage as well; washing thoroughly will help wash away all traces of salt to avoid corrosion.

    Remove dirt and mud to avoid buildup

    Cleaning mud and dirt frequently to avoid buildup is imperative in preventing rust on your Polaris RZR. If left unattended for too long, the moisture in the debris will corrode and create potential damage on your unit or, at the very least, make it unsightly.

    The best way to prevent this from happening is to clean your unit as soon as possible. Not only will this prevent rust, but it will also make the cleaning process quicker and easier, especially if you spray it down while the debris is still fresh and wet. There’s nothing more arduous than scraping dried mud off the underbelly of a UTV, right? For that reason, it’s best to get it done sooner rather than later.

    Use skid plates to protect the underside of your Polaris RZR

    That’s right, there’s an accessory that is built specifically to protect the underbelly of your UTV. Skid plates are often mounted to prevent the frame and undercarriage from being damaged in rocky conditions, which can also act as a shield from scratches or damage that may expose parts of your unit to the elements. Mounting skid plates has the potential to prevent that damage from occurring, thus never giving your unit the chance to form rust. 

    These are dozens of ways to practice rust prevention. A quick Google search will give you plenty of options, and at least one is bound to be an option for you. 

    If nothing else, simply try to store your vehicle in a dry and protected spot and keep it clean after every ride. Doing so will prevent opportunities for rust to take hold, thus ensuring that your ride will last you for years to come. 

  • What Is Wheel Offset and Why Should You Care?

    In many cases, that alien string of letters and numbers printed on the label of whatever you’re buying is for manufacturer use only, so many of us tend to ignore this “fine print.” When you’re in the market for a new set of Polaris RZR wheels, however, these numbers couldn’t be more relevant to your proper use of the product. 

    The wheel offset in particular is an often misunderstood dimension, so there’s no shame in asking for a little clarification if you don’t know what exactly wheel offset is. The same goes for bolt patterns. 

    Typically, when researching wheel sizing, you will see a figure similar to this:

    14x7 4/156 – (4+3)

    This is the exact sizing information for our Polaris RZR Hd6 14” Wheels, which come with STI’s high quality Roctane tires as well. In this snippet of numbers is included the size, offset, and bolt pattern. This guide will fully break down each of the three data points so you can make an informed purchasing decision.

    Easiest First: Size

    The “14 x 7” in our sample used above is the simplest to understand, so we’ll start there. This figure describes the overall dimensions of the wheel. The first number relates to diameter, and the second describes width, so these Polaris RZR wheels are fourteen inches around and seven inches wide—piece of cake. 

    Wheel Offset

    The (4+3) figure above is referencing this particular wheel’s offset level. Offset in this case is a measure of how much the wheel sticks out horizontally, either widening your stance or keeping it narrow. Specifically, offset is expressed as the relationship between the hub mounting location and the center line of the wheel. If the hub is mounted 4” away from the inner side and 3” away from the street side of the wheel, then you have a (4+3) offset, which will result in the wheel being tucked in slightly because the majority of the wheel’s width is on the inner side. 

    This may sound like a petty distinction at first, but it bears great importance on the overall ride quality and appearance of your Polaris RZR. It’s also important to note that your offset figures will always equal the total width of your wheel, and that when the numbers are equal, which is to say the hub is perfectly central, then there is no offset. 

    So, how exactly does this influence performance, you might be asking? Consider the following:

    • In the case of a (4+3) offset and especially in more dramatically tucked in offsets, like a 5 or 6 + 3, you gain the advantage of improved clearance all around your vehicle so you can squeak your Polaris RZR through/by tighter spots.
    • In the opposite case, where the first number is smaller than the second, you will sacrifice this improved clearance for improved stability, thanks to the wider stance. 
    • This kind of offset also enables you to run with larger tires if you so choose.
    • If you transition from your Polaris RZR factory wheels, which are usually offset, to a non-offset wheel, you will notice a difference in ride quality and clearance. Many assume that factory wheels are not offset, but this is not the case here.

    Some brands like to measure using just a single metric that describes exactly how far out or in the tire is set. This is usually expressed in millimeters, and will use negative numbers for when the first number is smaller (so the wheel sticks out), and positive numbers in the opposite case. So, our example above is a positive offset of a certain amount of millimeters – it would then be expressed as “+10mm” or “+15mm,” etc., meaning that’s how far beyond the center line that the tire is tucked in. Of course, no offset would simply be expressed as zero.  

    Whether you’re springing for a new set of tires or buying a new Polaris RZR altogether, it’s always helpful to know what kind of offset and size you’re running. You can determine what these dimensions are from your dealer, owner’s manual, or online. 

    Bolt Patterns

    That final figure, the 4/156 number, describes the bolt pattern of your wheel. The first number simply describes how many bolts there are, and the second number describes the distance between a pre-set measurement in millimeters. In our case, then, we’re looking at a 4-lug setup where the distance between two of the holes (located diagonally from each other) is 156mm. 

    Bringing It All Together

    To sum up, the figure 14x7 4/156 – (4+3) is a standardized way of expressing tire size (diameter x width), bolt pattern (number of lugs/space between pre-determined points) and offset (hub distance from inner tire surface + hub distance from street side of tire). Understanding these numbers will help you to ensure proper fitment, accommodate larger tires, improve clearance, service your tires with less hassle, and make more precise upgrade decisions.

  • Trail Navigation in your Polaris RZR

    Maps are a thing of the past. Nowadays, we rarely need anything beyond our smartphones to get us from Point A to Point B. Applications such as Google Maps serve as the ultimate navigator with features such as satellite imagery, aerial photography, street maps and more for anyone travelling by foot, bike, car, air or public transportation. Apps like this can even be used worldwide. Sounds like they’ve covered all their bases, right?

    But what about your favorite off-roading trails?

    Don’t be surprised if you go to set up a maps coordination from the seat of your UTV and come up short. Cellphones haven’t been preprogrammed with most off-road trails you might encounter on your off-roading adventures. Like we said above, maps are a thing of the past, so what do you do when even your best piece of technology cannot get the job done?

    That’s easy: look to the experts.

    Several reputable powersports brands have taken into consideration the fact that your phone might not be able to navigate you through off-road trails and, as a result, have developed some of the best GPS units available on the market today. Not only are they preprogrammed with thousands of off-roading trails, they also feature high-definition images that allow you to see exactly where you’re going in real-time while giving you time to prepare for your next move.

    If you’re looking for a GPS with high-definition images of the landscape around you, take a look at the Magellan TR7 GPS Jeep Bundle by Rugged Radios. The TR7 comes preloaded with over 160,000 ORV routes and user-generated tracks. The street navigation feature will help you get from the road to the trail and beyond, all while giving you turn-by-turn directions the entire way through. The best part? Many of the user-generated tracks have been created by fellow riders, so you know you can trust the information presented to you from your GPS unit. The hi-res 3D terrain view and 2D topo view with contour lines provide detailed land features of almost any area within the United States. The large, easy-to-read screen and the included windshield mount make navigating while driving a simple endeavor.

    For a more simplified experience, check out the Voyager GPS Kit by Trail Tech. This GPS kit integrates into your vehicle system and helps you plan your adventure in advance. The display screen portrays a clear and visible outlook of your projected route to help you prepare for your adventure. Other features included in the GPS include temperature and wheel sensors. The mounting hardware includes cables, clamps, cords, and anything else you’ll need to install your GPS into your unit in an easy-to-see area that will allow you to hit the trails running while navigating safely.

    Don’t get wrapped up in the belief that your cellphone can bail you out of any situation. Even the best cell phone providers can lose service, and you don’t want to be in a situation you can’t find your way out of. Invest in a RZR-specific GPS unit today and save yourself the time and trouble of loading your phone with even more applications. Get out and enjoy all that nature has to offer on the trails- all while knowing exactly where you are at all times. 

    To explore more GPS-related options for your rig, head over to Everything Polaris RZR and check out the full list of offerings from some of the best brands on the market. 

  • Choosing a Roll Cage for your Polaris RZR

    While the majority of us might currently be under quarantine orders as a result of the ongoing pandemic, that doesn’t mean Polaris RZR enthusiasts need to hang up their keys. While the rules for the coronavirus restrictions vary from state to state, working on your UTV in the safety of your shop or garage is, of course, entirely legal in all 50 states.

    You’re likely beginning to feel the effects of the stay-at-home orders and will surely put the pedal to the metal the moment you’re staring down the open fields behind the wheel of your RZR. We won’t fault anyone who’s looking to experience that adrenaline rush after so many weeks stuck at home, but there are several parts and accessories you might want to consider adding to your rig before you get out for the first time- for both fun and safety reasons.

    Though you’re a competent driver, accidents do happen and we want you to be prepared. In the event you might roll over your vehicle, we want you to be as best protected as possible, which is why we recommend installing a roll cage on your unit. The Polaris RZR is built to withstand even the roughest treatment, but there are no guarantees for your safety if you roll your rig and end up upside-down without a roll cage.

    Here are a few roll cages available from some of the best brands on the market, all of which can be found online at Everything Polaris RZR.

    900/1000 Rear Cage Support by Super ATV

    Accidents don’t have to be scary, especially when you have the right equipment to protect you. The 900/1000 Rear Cage Support by Super ATV will provide the protection you desire without sacrificing any element of fun. This roll cage support offers exactly that: that extra bit of support you’ll need on top of the stock roll cage. With easy bolt-on installation, your rear cage support can be installed and removed quickly so you’ll spend those extra precious moments on the trails instead of messing with tools.

    Polaris RZR 90/1000/ XP Turbo RacePace Flying V Bar by DragonFire

    In addition to structural support, the XP Turbo RacePace Flying V Bar by DragonFire provides added protection from projectiles that might be flying around. With an easy-to-install 6-bolt cage clamp system, you’ll have the ultimate protection in little time at all. The design has been deliberately made to fit on Polaris RZR stock roll cages.

    RC1 Black Roll Cage by RT Pro

    RT Pro’s Black Roll Cage has been crafted with the consumer’s safety in mind. Whether trying to edge out your competition in a race or cruising down the trails with your friends, riders can be assured that their safety was top of mind throughout the creation of this roll cage. Though sturdy, the cage is lightweight for a minimal addition of weight to your rig so it won’t slow you down. 

    Polaris RZR 800 Rear Seat and Roll Cage Kit by UTV Mountain

    The addition of the rear seat along with the roll cage increases your options for comfortability and passenger capacity while offering improved durability and functionality for your rig. The additional passengers will be well-protected by the roll cage, which has been crafted specifically to be rust-resistant and durable to prevent injury in the event of a rollover.

    We’re all feeling the effects of the quarantine orders that remain in place around the United States and the world. Rather than sitting in your home and waiting idly for the time to pass, spend that time upgrading your machine with a safety feature that will allow you to unleash the beast on the trails when the time comes. Your best summer yet is just around the corner and we want you to be ready for it. Visit Everything Polaris RZR for all your parts and accessory needs, whether you’re installing your roll cage or looking for other ways to improve your ride. We are all in this together- we’ll see you on the trails soon. 

  • How to Find your Polaris RZR Roll Bar Size and Style

    Stock Polaris RZR cages are really only meant for a single roll. And for this reason, a lot of Polaris RZR owners have installed aftermarket or custom roll cages on their machines. Baja roll cages are popular, and DOM tubing is a common material used to create custom Polaris RZR cages. But regardless of what RZR cage you’re running, knowing the dimensions of the roll bars and crossbars is important. 

    If you’re looking to install aftermarket Polaris RZR accessories like windshields, doors, and roofs, knowing the width, diameter, and perimeter of your roll cage tubes will help you avoid getting the wrong accessories. 

    Factory Polaris RZR Cage Sizes

    The Polaris RZR Pro two-seat and four-seat vehicles have 2-inch roll bars, while the Turbo S, Turbo XP, XP4 Turbo, XP 1000, and XP4 1000 all have 1.75-inch roll bars. The 2015 and newer RZR 900s also have 1.75-inch roll bars, and so do all the RZR models that came before 2014. However, not all aspects of the pre-2014 roll cages are the same size. The harness bar and rear bumper crossbars on the RZR, RZR S, and RZR XP are 1.5 inches, with the rear top crossbars being only 1.25 inches on the four-seat versions. Meanwhile, the youth-size Polaris RZR 170 has a roll cage that measures 1.25 inches. 

    Polaris RZR Roll Bar Size by Vehicle

    • XP 900 (2015+) - 1.75"
    • XP 1000 & XP 4 1000 - 1.75"
    • XP Turbo & XP 4 Turbo - 1.75"
    • Pro 2 seat and 4 seat - 2.0″
    • 170 - 1.25"
    • RZR's 2014 & Older - 1.75"

    It should also be noted that the cage size isn’t always congruent throughout the vehicle. For example, while the Polaris RZR 900 has a 1.75-inch roll cage, the horizontal tube behind the seats is only 1.5 inches. 

    In addition to the size of the roll bars, it is also helpful to know the size of the hardware used to secure cage connections. For example, 3/8-inch standard thread bolts are used in the rear ROPS extension housing for any 16+ 900S or 1000S RZR. In many cases, paint will prevent you from easily threading bolts. If this is the case, you might have to tap the hole so that it accepts the bolt thread. 

    Aftermarket Polaris RZR Cage Sizes

    Although there are a variety of possible sizes for custom and aftermarket Polaris RZR cages, most use either .095-inch or .120-inch tubing. The wall thickness of a factory RZR cage is only .065 inches, so aftermarket RZR rollover protection structures (ROPS) are generally heavier than OEM cages. 

    As we mentioned earlier, many aftermarket Polaris RZR cages are made from DOM (drawn-over-mandrel) tubing. However, such electrical-resistance-welded (ERW) tubing is far from popular among racing organizations, and many riders would argue that sewer pipe should only be used for sewers, and the good stuff should be used when your life's on the line.  

    One problem with factory Polaris RZR cages is that they are bolted together using thin-walled tubing with no supports. Sure they can take a good shot in the A pillar, but roll them once and they’ll crumble, usually breaking in the main frame section. Unfortunately, most OEM cages barely meet defined legal specs, and they are designed to absorb impacts by crumpling up and deforming. 

    The more rigid the cage, the harder the impact is on your body. If you look at Formula One or NASCAR, you’ll notice that they use soft-wall cages to cushion the driver from blows. And while the same concept is true with UTVs, if you’re in a multiple-roll situation -- which is common on steep and hilly terrain -- you’re going to want a cage that can withstand multiple blows without deforming. 

    In Closing

    Whether you have the stock Polaris RZR cage, an aftermarket Polaris RZR cage, or a custom-built Polaris RZR cage, knowing the size and weight dimensions of your ROPS is helpful for a number of reasons. If your cage is heavy, for example, you might want to adjust your suspension to be stiffer. If your cage isn’t stock, you might find it difficult to find windshields, doors, mirrors, or cage mounts that fit properly. Whatever the case may be, the more info you have about your cage, the better you'll be.

  • Polaris RZR vs. Polaris Ranger - What's the Difference?

    If you go to Google and type in the name of this article, you’ll find several threads all asking the same question: what is the difference between the Polaris Ranger and Polaris RZR? As enthusiasts of both the Ranger and RZR, we can tell you that, though they come from the same manufacturer, there are many factors that differentiate the Ranger and RZR from one another. From functionality and intended use to options for aftermarket parts and accessories, the Ranger and RZR each have their own unique characteristics that are meant to give different experiences to customers. 

    So, what is it that makes each of these units different from one another? Let’s take a look at the differences in the intended use of each unit, and how customers can utilize each for their preferred use.

    Just take one look at the RZR and answer this: does it not look like a lean, mean, trail-crushing machine? With engine capabilities that’ll send adrenaline spiking through your veins and a suspension that will make you feel as if you’re flying over the terrain, the Polaris RZR is certainly not for the faint of heart; in fact, certain RZR models can even reach 80mph for those that are particularly daring enough to reach those speeds. The RZR is meant to conquer even the rockiest and steepest terrain with ease while promising the adrenaline rush of a lifetime for those flying over sand dunes and open prairies. While the RZR is sure to send your heart rate flying into the skies above, we strongly recommend you exercise caution while behind the wheel of the beast and ride responsibly.

    While the Ranger can certainly elicit similar fun-induced adrenaline rushes while out on the trails, this machine is built to be a workhorse for farmers, hunters, and anyone else who might need a solid machine with hauling powers and a strong backbone. The Ranger can be outfitted with a cargo bed for extra hauling powers to those who need more transportation options. With two or four-seater units available, these machines are perfect for transporting your friends to a deer stand or your family of four to a campsite for a weekend getaway. 

    While the Ranger has been built for utility use, where there’s work, there must be an option for play- and the Ranger is no exception. Though you won’t reach the same pulse-pounding speeds as you will behind the wheel of the RZR, the Ranger has been built with the capabilities necessary to bring riders an afternoon of fun while offering its services to a full forty-hour workweek on the farm.

    While both the RZR and Ranger can be used for varying purposes, the function of each is clear: the Ranger is built for work, and the RZR is built for play. Either is a good option, but keep in mind that each has been built to serve varying purposes, and depending on what your purposes are for purchasing a unit, you may want to go with the one that serves your intended use best. Either way, head over to Everything Polaris RZR or Everything Polaris Ranger and we’ll help you outfit your brand-new machine with all of the aftermarket parts and accessories you could possibly need.
