Just got new brush guard. Polaris brand returned it. I am looking for one that's got a better finish. And no im not gonna go get it sprayed. Anyone know of a after market company that sells one with a better finish that will hold up. Maybe one that's powder coated. Any advice with links would be appericated

My recommendation:

Viking Polaris Brush Guards & Bumpers

Ya I put the 13 bumper on my 14. I didn't like the look of the new bumper at all.

I'd have to agree.... don't care for the look of the new OEM bumpers. And for the price/quality, I'd go with the Viking over the OEM..... wish I could have, but it wasn't an option when I bought!

Get a Guru or Viking bumper. Once you see how stout one is you will wonder why anyone would buy the Polaris. The Guru is powder coated and textured, I assume the Viking is the same.

I had this bumper on my 400, and it didn't matter how caked or dried on clay/mud got on it. As soon as you hit it with the pressure washer it flies right off!

Can someone post a link to the site they ordered their viking or guru bumper, I want to make sure I'm getting it from the right one. Also what's the difference between the "python", "guru" and "viking"?

You need stiffer front springs with that bumper and the winch cable is to close for pulling the plow up and down...

You've got to be kidding.... right? No front bumper would require HD springs to run with it installed. But I guess it's possible if your springs are already shot.

As fot the plow/winch setup.... I would think this may very by make and model of plow system as the connection points vary between them all slightly.

No worries..... buy it, install it and enjoy it!
