Windshield.. Full or Half???

OK, After a couple rides in the new Ranger, the dust is killer out there... Looking into windshields and there are lots to choose from. I hear that full windshields make kinda a wind tunnel and the dust pushes in from the back.. I see lots of people running half windshields, do they block the dust well? I know it gets hot riding around in summer time, so having the wind blowing helps keep cool, but we gotta do something about the dust.

So what are your experiences/opinions on windshields??

I say half. It will help keep cold wind off your body and helps deflect dust (no it wont kill100% of it, but it does help). Plus if you splash through alot of muddy water you can still see above it unlike a muddy full windshield. And at the same time a half will also let enough air in the cab in the summer to keep cool.

I agree. But in summer, none. Too hot.

The dust is ridiculous though... Have to ride 100 yds behind the vehicle in front of you in order to not get sandblasted...

I had a fold down on my rhino, when down it was a half. It was SUPA nice. But can't find one for the ranger and the full adjustable one raises up from the bottom plus its made of glass,, an really expensive. I am also debating putting just a half on mine and put a coat of tint over it for S&G!

13 900 Ranger,,just a lil lift!!!
08 Rincon, rolln on mayhems!
10 Rancher, its got a paddle!

I still got dusty even w/ the half windshield on the Rex. Matter of fact it sucked it in around the sides and made it worse. You dont have them on wheeler's and been riding them for years in the dust so... what's the difference? lol Gonna be dusty either way, and I'd rather be dusty and feeling some breeze than dusty and hot caust it's blocking all the air. Just my 2 cents...

Ride with it both ways and see which you like better. If you're just creeping all the time on trails & in the woods & mud holes, it wont matter either way.

True DAT! I mainly have it to keep me dry and it does deflect bird sized bugs too.
