    Northstar with Tinted Windows

    Had my windows professionally tinted in my 2018 NorthStar Ranger. Really helps keep the heat down in the cab. AC is able to keep up in temps over 90 degrees much more easily.

    29s? Did you have to lift it any? Any rub?

    I just got a 19' 1000XP Premium and I'm already wanting to put bigger shoes on it.

    No rubbing issues. These are directly from the Polaris accessory catalog and are what they recommend for the Ranger. I have 1500 miles on these tires. Very quiet and smooth. I run them @ 11.5 PSI. Some guys on here are running 30's with no issues also.

    We can't ride the trails up here after dark so it's no issue. Never use it at night.

    I went with dark Limo tint on the sides and back. 35% on the front windshield. I'm not sure what brand of tint but the installer said it had a 5 year warranty.

    you will have issues with the big tires (30's), not rubbing issue but the factory polaris parts will wear out more quickly....IE suspension bushings, bearings, and ball joints
    I converted ours to run rzr turbo spindle pins/uniballs and all brass bushings in the control arms = worth it!

    Ride looks very nice! I have a 2018 crew northstar with added power doors, we want to get the windows tinted. What did they charge you? is that 5% film or?

    Looks great!

    Charged me $250. Front window is 35% tint and the rear and sides are Limo grade dark. (not sure what % tint)
    I have a 5 year warranty on this unit from Polaris. My dealer confirmed with them that if I used this tire/wheel combo from Pro Armor, that they would warranty any issues. This is why I went this route.
    I also didn't want to lift my Ranger because I ride big trails and wanted to maintain the handling. So far it's been great.

    Limo tint is known as 5%
    You tinted the front glass! interesting!!

    Copy that! My driveway has a mud season, so the larger tires are to get us ground clearance for that......
    We also use the northstar to commute in the winter, on snow tracks
    Smart move on the warranty have them fix it for ya! I build off road stuff so I knew what I was getting into with this machine........to run big tires, run snow tracks, and use it daily, REQUIRES the aftermarket.
    But I will keep it forever, so I can justify the time and $$$ spent (we build everything we drag home in time)

    Thanks for sharing, I LOVE the new Northstars, we have a 2018, but it is really the last of the 2017, so the old body style. The 2018 like yours has many advantages, doors with glass that rolls down!! (we added to our machine) , the WAY better looking plastics, one piece frame for the crew, better HVAC ducts, more tire clearance and most importantly CUP HOLDERS that don't throw your drink!!
