Google Wes Industries and look at their Wes Classic Box (I don't know how to imbed the link here). I put one on a 2017 Sportsman 570 and it works great. I had to remove the rear rack to mount it using bolts through the bottom of the rack through the box. For nuts I used those plastic turn nuts like you find on push lawnmower handles that allow you to fold the handles down. I had to drill access holes in the bottom of the box to allow me to bolt the rack with the box attached back on the machine. I plugged the holes with rubber stoppers to keep out the dust and they provide nice drain holes when I hose out the inside of the box.

I second the comments from Thorshammer. The other Thor from theatvsuperstore.com was very helpful when I emailed him last year about the same thing. He hooked me up with a lock and ride compatible seat/box and it's been really good so far. I got this Kimpex box:

I also recommend the foot rest kits that Thor sells - it makes it more comfortable for the passenger.

I have one similar to this and it's great. The storage also fits two helmets which is nice if you are stopping for a bite to eat along the way. I'm in WI and they are allowed.

The Wisconsin DNR says a machine that was manufactured for one rider is only allowed to carry one person. If you want to ride two people on an ATV it must be on a ATV factory designed for two people.

The new law takes affect on July 1, 2019

This is the first I have heard of this. Where did you see that? It's not in the current rule book: https://dnr.wi.gov/files/pdf/pubs/le/le0500.pdf

I also have the Kimplex Nomad Seat/Storage box. Mounted with the Lock n Ride Studs from ATV Superstore.

Wife is very happy with it, Grandkids love it, even my SIL rode with me and said it was very comfortable. The storage Box holds a BUNCH of stuff.

As to being "legal" or not, well if you ride on Private Ground it does not matter. On State Trails they have their own rules and you are supposed to follow them. However having said that I know of lots of guys that use them and never have an issue-- but IF the OFFICER that happens to be there checking wants to give you grief they can.

Learning all over again.
