    Here's what you get in the kit





    Installation Instructions





    Remove the top of the dashboard to install the attachment catch and drill a hole for the post to stick out of





    I then laid the windshield in place to align and mount the hinges to the top of the roll cage



    I meant to snap a pic of the hinge mount, but forgot. Here you can see where I used shims to align the windshield before snugging down the hinge fasteners. This job would be easier with a helper. I was working alone



    The shock mounts are already attached to the windshield, but you need to attach the lower ball mounts to the Ranger's roll cage



    As you can see from this picture, I had to do some modifications in order to make the dash mount post line up. It became apparent that the roll cage on this Ranger is slightly out of kilter


    In order to make the post high enough to achieve an adequate 'catch' on the handle, I had to stack some washers under the post mount.


    Here's a couple of additional pics








    Hi great install. Its getting a little cold up in norther WI and I'm ready to have a windshield on two weeks ago.lol. I'm having a hard time finding where to buy a poly tip out online or even finding any info on pricing. where did you order yours from and what are they asking for them if you don't mind me asking?

    Jay the Polaris Industries website lists the poly tip out as part # 2880091, and here is the description. The problem is they describe a glass windshield in the narrative but the material states polycarbonate. I believe the part # is correct though and you should be able to order it through any Polaris dealer.

    Edit (10/30/13): The correct part # for the 2013 is actually 2878855 and it list for $800.

    Color: Clear
    Material: .236” thick polycarbonate
    Scratch and Shatter Proof

    I'm having an issue with the latching in the most closed position. Mine may be missing something. Does anyone have a good close up picture of the outer most hole for latch up in the closed position? It may be I'm missing a grommet there or something. There is none on mine. Its metal And I can't think they would design it to be metal on metal. Particularly since the second position, vent position, has a nice grommet.

    Now... mind you that the plate that my post bracket attaches to in my Browning edition is not the same as yours is showing. And the bracket uses two different holes in this plate. It has oblong holes but there are not enough adjustment to perfectly line up. I'll snap a picture of this newer style bracket I am dealing with and post it up here in a few minutes.

    I know had to do some slight work on the pin location by taking a set of vice grips and giving it a tweak of a bend to get the pin centered into the hole. There was not quite enough adjustment in the bracket slots.

    Added on edit: Here is the latest bracket type and location on this new Browning that I just bought...



    Thanks in advance!

    I know am going to have to do some slight work on the pin location but dare not start until I know I have the right latch arrangement.

    There is no grommet for the first (closed) hole, just the second (vent) hole. I modified the hinge bolt holes at the top of the cage, I had to (tweek) it a little to the right, if your standing facing the unit (front).

    Ok... Just did that. But I already had mine all the way to the right and that just lined it up however it was too low away from the hole.... so I Bent the whole attachment bracket forward to lift it up a bit. Lines up now. Not the best system though I got to say. Another nice grommet would have been ideal I would think. Ill just have to get it bent right to stay but yet latch easily enough. I'm close now.

    You're going to need to adjust the latch post, so that you get a secure catch.

    Dean is correct, sounds like you need to move the post back, toward the seat.
    You should have to compress the seal, while pulling on the handle and then the hole in the handle should just barely clear the post. Then when you release the handle, the window seal when it expands should keep the handle snug against the post.
