OK, sounds like I'll just spend that $200 somewhere else... I need to invest in some rock sliders or something soon... already found a crack in the plastics from something hitting it, maybe a root or something...

Sounds like you've been riding at Creekside....that place has the worst dust that I've been to. I love rides on rainy days because it means no dust!

No I haven't been there yet.. I ate dust at Down South, and even worse at Xtreme Offroad (old Mel's) in Crosby. Both places have water trucks going up and down the main road, but it dries before they make it back down the road, so it's pretty much pointless unless you ride right behind them..

I like the half windshield, with the rear windscreen... don't know about your ranger, but on my rzr, somehow the rear windscreen makes a huge difference on dust. I took it off when I first got it and rode down the dirtroad and the dust was terrible. but when I put it back on it seems to keep the flow going through and somehow block the dust out. That's why I was so adamant about keeping the rear windscreen when I snorkeled mine. I cut holes in it for the snorkels.

Is there a reason why you can't make your own out of plexiglass from Home Depot? I just got a Rhino and was thinking about doing this.

I don't want to block access to the cooler.... I like being able to reach through the back and grab a cold........ water.... without having to stop and get out.. LOL

Like several people have mentioned, I never had a windshield on the Brute.. so I'll just deal with it..

Great choice IMO. My Z8 came with a 1/2-shield and I was never happy with it although I always wear a helmet and goggles, I went with a SuperATV full tilting shield and have never been happier. Just bought and installed the rear shield looking for a reduction in the massive amount of dust that comes in from having a full front shield. Should be great as a friend with a RzR has one that really helps.
