I love my front brush guard. Keeps the limbs from breaking stuff. I like my hand guards too. Saved my knuckles more than once. Light bars are totally awesome if you get stuck riding after dark, love mine. Winch is a MUST HAVE. Someone in the group needs to have one, might as well be you.

heated hand grips and thumb warmer... mmm so worth it!

OH!!! do yourself a favor and replace your thumb leaver before it breaks on you during a ride!
There are aluminum ones that dont break and they still get warm with thumb warmer.

i broke 2 OEM thumb leavers in my first 3 months.

Polaris does not sell the 5$ plastic part, they sell the whole throttle assembly (without lid) for almost 100$CDN.
