Nice! Is that the Polaris Glacier Plow System? How is it?
Yessir. It's a pretty slick system. The quickest on-off plow I've had on any of my vehicles.

The only issue I had with it was with the eyebolt style attachment for the winch hook. It should have been shorter from the factory. Because it's too long, I would run out of cable before the plow could reach its max height. Twice while plowing today, I lifted the blade and the hook got jammed in the fairlead rollers.

Also, since the blade couldn't lift to its max height, this meant the bump-stop actuator for the frame foot, couldn't hit the metal tab which triggers the frame foot to spring up in place when initially mounted. There's a bit of adjustment in the bump stop, but just not enough in this case.

I resolved the issue by cutting 4" off of the eyebolt and threading it to the top so I could get more adjustment.





With the shortened bolt, I was pretty certain the plow would hit max height before the cable hook came near the fairlead, but to be certain I decided I needed a cable stop. However, since the ATV/UTV dealers around here close at noon on Saturdays, I decided to MacGyver up a cable stop with an old hockey puck that was kicking around.

Why swap to an aluminum roof??
I haven't had much luck with plastic roofs. I broke two on my RZR before I finally switched to aluminum. Both broke in the winter after hitting a low hanging branch.

Cold plastic and hardwood at 45-50 km/h doesn't seem to make for a good combination.

Drilled wire chase for rear cab lights. All lights and wiring stay with the roof when the roof is removed. One disconnect at each side where wiring comes out of roll bar.
