I start this by stating I have never owned an atv or side by side so please understand where my ignorance comes from. I will be buying a side by side in 2014. I want to use it to transport my family of 4 and myself up and the steep hills of my 100 acre eastern ky farm. I want haul wild game feeders etc up and down these hills. Not at all interested in hill hopping or mud bogging etc. very interested in quality and value. After a month of research I think the pioneer is the one. For light duty farm use (fences, firewood etc) what would be everyone's recomendations as far as windshields hard or soft tops winch or not etc. again I apoligize for being ignorant but I am a good listener

I suggest a roof. It allows the family to ride in inclement weather more comfortably. What roof is a personal preference. If your in a lot of low trees the hard roof is not going to get torn. Windshield choice will depend a lot on what your driving through as well and if you want a wiper or not. Those two accessories will add more comfort and that is probably important when first exposing the family to off road riding. Just my two cents.

i think that right now the honda OEM roof, doors and cabs are the best quality but .....you pay threw the nose for them . i think once the aftermarket catch up you will see the prices drop some

Thanx guys, I think the hard top definitely would be more durable but what about the effect on trailering and would you recomend a full windshield, half, glass or poly?

Windshield depends, durability goes to the glass with the wiper, but in dusty conditions it will suck dust into the cab just like a jeep with the window up. This is the reason I always end up with the split one so you can open it up and keep most of the dust out in the summer.

The poly roof has 4 quick release clamps and can be taken off and stowed for transport.

If I bought a factory windshield, I'd probably go all out and get the glass with wiper. That's just me though. Instead of that, I run a lexan sheet and don't have too many complaints about that.
