It’s easy to buy little things for your UTV like seat belts and storage racks. When it comes to bigger purchases, however, you might hesitate before investing your time and money in something that feels like an extravagance.
The good news is that many “splurge” items for your UTV are actually multipurpose tools that can serve many needs. If you’ve been thinking about modding your vehicle, here are just five tips for doing it in a way that makes your investment worthwhile.
- Cab Enclosures
When the weather decides to take a turn for the worst during your next drive, you’ll need a cab enclosure to protect you. The best kind is strong enough to withstand all kinds of rain, snow and sleet. For the stylish driver, cab enclosures also give you the chance to showcase your personality with their colors and styles.
If you’re still driving on the same wheels that your vehicle had when you first bought it, you’re missing out on prime UTV customization opportunities. Not only can you find something that better suits your aesthetic, but you can also shop for heavy-duty or off-roading tires that will last longer than their cheap counterparts.
UTV bumpers can be critical for the long-term protection of your vehicle, but some companies don’t include them in their blueprints, so you might need to purchase one separately. Look for something made of sturdy, durable material that will accommodate your existing taillights.
- Ski and Track Systems
These are absolutely essential if you spend a lot of time on rugged terrain. Lift kits may or may not help you protect the underbelly of your UTV, but ski and track systems will protect your tires like it’s their only job. Their cool and rugged appearance is just a bonus.
Every driver could use a harness in their UTV. Even if you don’t personally need it as you race around dusty tracks and bounce along sand dunes, you might one day have a young or frightened passenger who could use it. Harnesses can also come in handy during emergency situations in tough conditions that you didn’t expect. It’s always better to be prepared.
These are just a few ways to outfit your UTV with multi-function accessories. Remember, you don’t have to feel guilty about buying and owning them. Consider them an investment for your future and don’t sweat the price tag.
