Just a plain old workhorse Ranger with the exception of the windshield, mirrors, and the best idea I ever had, a steel roof shot with bedliner. No limbs are too tough for it, and I can fill feeders from the top. Climb, stand, and fill !

Best machine for me for the money imo, paid $10k + normal fees & came with 3yr warranty.

Have added wheels and 27” tires, rear 2” lift, winch, windshield and overhead gun mount.

Awesome rack, where did you get that and how much? (SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!) Also, which windshield is that? Scratch resistant? My next upgrade is going to be that quieter muffler they have.

Lol yeah those max capacity labels are taken as a challenge pretty regularly.

Bumper is more for looks really. When I bought the ranger I got gift card in the mail for something like $500 dollars in polaris accessories so I just used it for the bumper.

Gun rack was $150 ish

The windshield was right under $300, but don’t remember a brand name- I just researched a bunch and picked one out.

It’s a polaris product. I got mine at the dealership. However it doesn’t offer a whole lot of protection. They’re made of some pretty thin metal. It’s more for looks if you ask me.

Look at tough country front end replacements... They are hell for stout! That's what is on the one I posted the pics of above... Even has a receiver hitch built in...

File this under accessories I guess. I built this small front rack for my Mule Pro last Friday evening. I wanted something just big enough for an ice chest, or a bag of feed. I had a bigger rack on my last buggy, and it seems like the bigger it is, the more likely I am to overload it! LOL. So I decided to keep it small.

ON the mule pro, there are 4 predrilled holes in the bumper. I measured, and thru-drilled them so I could run a 1/4" bolt thru to the other side. The connection is pretty strong, and I think it's gonna work out nicely.

I really like that! I wonder if it I made it a little longer if I could throw a deer on it? Would be easier to pull one up there than all the way up into the bed with the feeder on the back.

Yep. This is the one I had on my old mule.

My new one is 24" wide, and 18" deep. When my dad saw it, he asked why I didn't make it longer to haul an animal. I told him "because I didn't want to"

Which Pioneer is that? My 1000-5 Deluxe came with those bigger wheels/tires and yours appears to have the deluxe side color panels. Yours also does not have the rear roll cage so I'm guessing it does not have the jump seats in the bed? That's a good looking machine!

1000-3 with eps. Got it specifically because it had the color side panels that are interchangeable. It doesn’t have the additional seats in the bed. Planning for a custom roof and a high rack sometime next year!

I just bought a 2019 CanAm Defender HD10 XMR. I was coming from a 2014 Ranger 900xp Browning Edition. I sold the 900 to a friend of mine who had just purchased some land down in Llano county. I went in looking to pick up a new Ranger 1000, but after seeing and then driving the new '19 Defender HD10 XMR.....well the decision was very easy to make. Everything about the new Defender (to me) is better than the Ranger. The biggest thing to me was the seat comfort. The XMR has the bolstered seats and they feel like they have gel in them compared to the hard flat bench seat on the Ranger. Ill post some pics as soon as Im able to.

***Edit to add: I had zero problems with my 14 Ranger 900 and zero problems with my 09 Ranger that I had before that. Im not a Ranger hater. The CanAm is just a better thought out machine in my opinion.

It comes factory with forward arches A arms, 3” of lift, 30” ITP Crytid tires, a front and rear locker, snorkel setup, heavy front bumper, rock sliders, fender flares, and a winch. I bought a plastic roof for it and will be getting a front windshield that flips up as well. I will get some extra lighting on it as well since the factory headlight leave a little to be desired.

Not sure why the pics look so grainy after I uploaded them.....?

Following Centexranchers lead I added a rock light for the interior lighting. I only put 1 so far and it seems to be plenty of light, still have 3 from the package of 4 so I might add those somewhere else.

2017 Mule 4010. 2” lift, upgraded to 6 ply Sedona BuzzSaw tires, custom front bumper, high rack, and steel roof...all are sprayed with bedliner. Upgraded to LED headlights, plus added light bar. Small additions are an LED battery powered interior light, two cup holders on back or rear cadge, and roll bar grab handles. This will be her first year on the lease out West...









IMHO, the quad trailer in the last pic is BY FAR the best upgrade that can be had for any UTV/ATV.... More than doubles the working/hauling ability, saves the old back when loading game, keeps the blood out of the bed, and allows WAY MORE beer to be transported iced down...

Just got a new Polaris 900 and it came with the full glass windshield. I’d rather have a split fold down windshield. Is that something I could take to a dealer and get switched out for minimal cost? I’m new to this game so pardon my ignorance.

Finished up 4 green lights on mine and wiring the winch. I used them as more of a rock light instead of the interior as my top has dome lights and I've got a green LED bulb in the front one.

Did a rocker switch for the lights and the winch separately with weather proof connectors and with Heat Shrink. Turned out pretty nice but I'm going get a fuse block on the list to make it a little cleaner.
