Great build thread Jefflac02, thanks for sharing your work. So, did you ever decide / add a skid plate?
Sorry arctic for the very delayed response. No. With the lift kit and 30” I haven’t had any issues on the undercarriage. I tore a cv boot on the last ride and need to replace it, but that could have just been a stick or some brush tearing it.

Hope everyone is well. Sorry for being a stranger.

Boss V-XT plow installed. Had to switch over to the 27” Roctanes from our RZR 800 so that the tires wouldn’t rub.

Also, just bought a 2014 900 part out unit that I think is the steal of the century. Complete cab, with fixed glass windshield with wiper, Polaris factory heater and full doors (glass is broken out of both but easily fixable) engine and transmission are with it but disassembled. All for $500 If I can get the heater and wiper/washer working. I’ll be happy. The doors would just be icing on the cake.

Great deal! The wiper kit costs more than you paid for the whole thing.
Yes sir! And the heater is 2x as much. And the doors 4x as much (although they are in rough shape and will need new seals and some glass (sliding windows are as $489 a piece, I think I’ll stick to fixed glass).

Got the heater installed this morning, finally got to bed at 2am. What I realize is that I hate doing wiring.

Because I lost two switch bank spots in my dash (had two in the Lower panel where the heater controls go) I decided to just tape off my rock lights and courtesy lights until the Spring or until I decide where I was to put those two switches

In doing that, I ended up tearing out all of my wiring and starting from scratch. With the addition of the heater wiring, heater plenum (which took up a ton of inside dash space) and the wiring for the power wiper and washer, I decided I needed to redo some things.

I wish I could say I cleaned things up a bit, but I will still have to make some adjustments on my fuse box location under the hood. Unfortunately we are calling for snow today and tonight and business calls. So I powered through and got it all buttoned up.

I working on bleeding the heating system today (some dummy forgot to tighten the clamps on the heater core and leaked some fluid all over his garage floor) hopefully I can get all the air out and be ready to plow some snow in the morning. More pics to come later.

Heater install is the biggest job I’ve ever done on one. It’s a PIA!

Tell me about it. It helped that I had to take it out of the parts unit so I knew how it installed. It was still a PITA to cut and splice the lines. Those fittings were tight.

All good now! Got the system burped and it’s throwing hot air. Even without the doors on yet, you can still feel the heat pretty good. Looking forward to plowing snow in my t shirt.

Everything is buttoned up and ready to go! Nice and shiny. Sprayed some maxima sc1 on the plastics. Hopefully the snow will roll right off. Bring on the
