2014 sportsman putting on tough rack

So I bought the new tough rack cause I'm sick of the plastic one braking and cracking so wondering if anyone as swapped to the tough rack on an older sportsman I know it's made for the new sportsman cause the fenders and the steel on the back by the tail lights is different but I'm gonna make it work and still look good. Like to see if anyone has done it.

I put the front and rear on. It was very easy. It bolted right up to the holes that are already there. I'm not sure if it would work with an older model.

You might want to reconsider removing that rear support. as that was what carried a majority of the load on the previous rack. Your first pic would have been how I left the support, and just made a tab or bracket to mate it to the new rack.

The dealer said this should work on a 570 touring. Any confirmation? He didn't sound too confident.

Hey martlet yeah I've looked at a few pictures all the racks looks to be the same the only that won't be able to put on it would be the handles for the passenger.
