So just to understand you clearly.... You want to go fast through mud and water in a utility vehicle that has no cab or windshield and not get wet or dirty?
Then, you are willing to take a loss and trade it in because you thought that you would stay clean and dry while riding fast through mud and water in a utility vehicle with no cab or windshield?
Two words for you........
With all due respect, I don't consider 15-20 MPH on a graded dirt/gravel road or protection levee "riding fast". The pioneer is acknowledged as slower than every other competitive SxS. I did not purchase it for speed to begin with.
I have a ranger and rhino that do not have this problem.
I'm not talking about riding through 12" of water or soft mud and bulldogging water and mud over the hood and into the cockpit.
The overspray I'm referring to is equivalent to riding a bicycle with no fender in the rain on the concrete. It's coming off of the side lugs of the tires and straight up past the edge of the front fenders.
With 600 miles on the bike and spending 2-3 hours a day in the drivers seat, it's not just a random occurrence that I'm spouting off about.
As far as taking a loss goes, yes, I guess I will have to. I use this vehicle 20-30 hours a week for my business and being in the weather this time of year isn't easy dry, much less covered in spray. The mid sized ranger offers a dryer ride.
As far as a cab/windshield goes, without a windshield wiper and washer, the windshield would be rendered completely unable to see through after a half mile run. If there were an easy fix to this, this thread would never have been started. I'll be looking into the above mentioned flares for a possible solution. I started a thread on this same matter six + weeks ago looking for a solution and am still entertaining the notion that one May exist.
