Interstingly, i read posts on here and it reminds me of how different the needs and environment is for so many of you since the majority of people dont live in a warm climate like me (Florida). Talk of snow plows, full cabs, heaters, front and rear windshields, wipers, etc. is totally foreign to me.

Anyway, i am in florida, in fact, im at the beach today despite a major cold front that came thru last night. Im pretty tough like that. Temps are not going above 59 today, so pretty chilly, 

So, my question, given my different climate, what do you recommend i consider buying from the dealership when i pick up my ranger 900 on march 3rd?

I am considering a half windshield, though i have a folder on my bad boy buggy and really like the optionality. Not sure if there is a good one for the 900.

I guess a roof makes sense. This time of yr it is nice to be open but rain or summer heat makes it necessary, i think.

Last, i have a 10 inch rigid combo light bar that i really like. You all will consider it way to small but if it will easily fit (???), i would like to use it. I also have a warn 3000lb cable winch that is new and wonder if it will be ok. Smaller than ideal, but for infrequent use, i thought it would work???

Anything else? Ps. I have no interest in a lift, new rims, tires, or any of that kind of stuff, this is for huntimg amd some joy riding on a 5000 acre ranch

Sounds like a roof and a half windshield and you'll be good to go! Your 10" bar should be just fine.

I came home with a full hard poly windsheld and a pro fit roof...Then I added rear cab lights ( Cree 6 led , 1 each side ) red interior lights and a radio...Aslo had to add horn and blinkers to make it street leagal. Later I added a poly rear glass to try to help with the dust issue.

If you're getting a base model with 25" tires, you may be changing your mind about bigger tires. Those stockers give you about the same ground clearance as a Crown Vic. :)

Roof is definitely a must - we Floridians are huntin' shade most of the year.

The winch might be a little small, but a snatch block doubles the capacity and halves the speed. Just carry a coil of wire rope to get the length you need to pull.

Get that roof and half windshield. Also, as Kevin said you should seriously consider upgrading the stock tires. You may be able to cut a deal with your dealer and swap out your stock tires.
