Full flip out version. Expensive but well worth it. https://ranger.polaris.com/en-us/sho...ields/2882874/

Fortress sliding windshield gets my vote.

Superatv makes a flip up version that looks nice.

Havenít seen it on a Ranger, but it fits great on the Rzr. I would guess they have it figured out

Bringing this back to the top. In the market. I’ve got a permanent glass windshield and it’s a pain to take it off and on depending on weather. Looked at fortress website but no prices and no dealer locator?? Need something that provides air flow when needed but blocks wind/rain when needed also.

I've got the tip-out Polaris OEM Windshield and really like it. When trailering the Ranger, I put it on the trailer backwards and open the windshield all the way up. Its pricey though.

I like my Quad Boss flip up windshield for my Can Am. I believe they make one for Polaris as well. Should run about $250 if I remember correctly.

Superatv full flip up. Way cheaper than the Polaris one. Mine has held up for 5 years.

My dadís Ranger rattles like crazy when up. When itís down itís the perfect shooting rest. I put the full fortress on my Mule Pro that has the flap that open up down low. It doesnít rattle and actually lets more air in but no shooting rest.

Well, if you are looking for a solid windshield thats easy to take on/off, I have an EMP that ive had for a few years. Been happy with it and it comes on/off with 4 screw brackets (2-3 minutes)

Glass is worth the extra $$$ I've never saw a plastic one that wasn't scratched all to heck.

I got the Polaris oem glass for mine. I think it was around 800. It comes off or on in about 30 seconds
