How many people can you think of right now that own a Polaris Ranger? Are you out of fingers yet?
The Ranger is the most popular UTV on the planet, and that means it sees all kinds of action. I bet that most of you reading this own a Ranger. What’s not to like about this vehicle? It’s got a nice, usable dump bed, plenty of torque, and room enough for up to six occupants with the full-size crew models. You can take the whole family for a spin around the farm while carrying a full load of firewood.
The Ranger is an incredibly versatile machine—it’s good at just about everything right out of the dealership. With a top speed of around 50 MPH and 80 HP, it can get you where you need to go in a hurry. Its 1,500-lb. payload capacity and 2,500-lb. towing capacity mean you can get all sorts of work done in short order.
Your Ranger has its limits though, and if you push it hard enough, you’ll find them. So how do you make it the ultimate working machine? Let us show you.
We’ll start with the obvious—you can’t have a reliable utility machine without a reliable winch. Winches are the definition of efficiency because of how versatile they are. From hauling to towing to operating a snow plow in the winter, a winch makes it easy to tackle any job in your Ranger.
And when we say “reliable winch,” we’re not talking about just any ol’ brand. No tool is as reliable or as tested as SuperATV’s Black Ops Winch.
For starters, Black Ops Winches are strong. The largest option is our whopping 12,000 lb. winch. It’s so big, it’s rated for use on Jeeps and trucks, so you know it’s more than enough for your Ranger. Don’t need something that massive? Black Ops Winches are also available in 2500, 3500, 4500, and 6000 lb. applications.
No matter which size you go with, all Black Ops Winches utilize safe and flexible synthetic rope. Don’t think synthetic nylon is as badass as steel cable? You’re right, it’s not—it’s even better. Synthetic rope has many benefits over steel cable because of its lightweight and flexible qualities. It’s also safer than steel, so you can handle it with your bare hands without shredding your skin.
Adding a winch to your Ranger is easy with our selection of winch-ready bumpers. Want to speed up the process even more? Consider a Ready-Fit Winch! It’s pre-mounted, pre-wired, and ready to get to work.
Many Rangers do not come with power steering, but if you think that power steering is an unnecessary luxury, you’re dead wrong. Power steering makes every movement of your machine feel better. Your UTV will feel like an extension of yourself, rather than a big tool that you’re sitting on. Not to mention it reduces steering feedback, so bumps don’t jerk your hands around. If you’ve spent a day on a UTV, you know that controlling your steering wheel over rough terrain is a one-way ticket to sore arms and a shorter (or at least a really uncomfortable) workday.
You might also think a power steering kit requires some serious know-how to get it installed, but you can tell the mechanic that you’re handling this one yourself. You don’t need much experience to get our kits together.
There are still more ways to improve your day-in/day-out work life, though.
The stock tires on a Polaris Ranger are fine, but that’s all—they’re just fine. What you need is a good pair of off-road tires to make sure you keep traction on slick, muddy days. We’re not talking about getting massive tires with huge lugs here—you don’t want any more ruts on your property—but we are talking about a good pair of Warrior Tires.
SuperATV’s Warrior Tires have amazing grip without massive lugs, so they don’t tear up everything you ride over. AT Warriors give you a smooth ride in case you need to take your Ranger on the road from time to time. They’re ideal for someone who wants to get work done easily, but loves having a capable off-road tire, too. You know, just in case you need to blow off some steam.
Better tires improve the whole experience of driving your Ranger. Better grip let’s you haul bigger loads in less forgiving terrain and keep on rolling in bad conditions.
That’s three easy upgrades that add more power, control, and versatility to a UTV that’s already incredibly impressive. With all those upgrades, you’ll have an amazing work machine and an amazing play machine. The Ranger is so adaptable that when you upgrade it for work, you’re also making it into a very capable weekend warrior.
Now when you hit a sloppy trail or a muddy hill, you’re prepared for a rescue mission in case someone gets stuck. When the trail gets technical, your power steering keeps you in control. When the ground turns to slop, your Warriors will keep your machine moving forward.
You’re really selling yourself short if you don’t blow off some steam and take your Ranger out for a spin every now and then. Once you realize what you’re missing out on, you won’t want to quit.
