    I know this thread is old but In addition to winch and Power Steering, I love my new arched A-arms. They provided just the right amount of lift. I think it has reduced the number of times I have to use the winch.

    Really nothing in SELA I care about riding, it is either mud or dust.

    Yeah. I'm up in NE Louisiana and still looking for some trail riding/cruising. Most everything has a few trails and a lot of mud.
    I'm also running into the 50 max vehicle width rule.

    My mindset is light riding around home and for serious stuff, wait to go toward Ozarks or Smokies. I will not intentionally sink my P1KD into deep mud or water and destroy it.

    Except for the plow and heater, I have all that, they are essential. If you make poor choices in life, Portals are the natural choice for the best added opinion :)

    As soon as I purchased my 2018 P5, I added power steering, winch, roof & windshield & hand controls.

    never cared about roof and windshield cause I dress for it, I ve been riding quads for decades without it. and we get real cold not southern cold like you guys tha have to have a heater and crap.

    tires and winch are always most important to me, biggest transformation in ride, where you can go and handling is tires.
    mud doesn't destroy vehicles, how you ride in the mud destroys vehicles. took me replacing the gears in the prairie to figure that one out, took like a month and a half of weekends to fix that but then I started taking it easy and never had to again, normally didn't get stuck either, didn't avoid the fun all together

    i use my Pioneer strictly for hunting. The roof keeps me dry in the rain. But I agree a winch is the best add on.

    I have been considering a roof lately mosty for my daughter but it would have to be heavy steel,she don't like mud . ive got some of the thick panels I made my skid plates with for my prairie, and floors for the rhino, they held up good. I am always hitting the roof and bars on trees they put too close. I'm sure plastic windshield and windshield wouldn't last one ride

    The Honda plastic roofs are very tough. I run mine through the bush all the time. On side hills lots of times the pressure on the top is great enough that the rops bolts are actually denting the plastic out but not breaking. Would highly recommend the Honda roof. They are not heavy.

    id never try plastic especially with the cost they want. my rhino had real thick plastic floors, and front bumpers made it one trail ride before most of it was gone, Always hitting trees with the cage and low branches everywhere. if I did get a roof would have to me metal, probably going to make it out the thick steel plate I made the rhino floors from. you have the height too that's already way too high

    Some of us are running 2” wide strips of UHMW the length of the roof that is attached to the roof with 80/20 nuts since rivets kept pulling through or shearing off. The UHMW is thicker and provides extra surface area so that over time the roof won’t thin out and get holes in it from the ROPS pressing against the trees.


    This is a much older picture with rivets.

    I’ve had rhinos and the floor plastic is s***. And a bit of poor design the way the cross members catch stuff. Good with a proper skip plate. The Honda plastic roofs are far better than the rhino floors and any of the plastic roofs I’ve had on rhinos. Although the rest of the unit is great.
