For people who need a utilitarian UTV, the Polaris Ranger is the go-to. Although Polaris did a great job with most of the Ranger XP design, there are a few components which fall short. The front bumper, in particular, is less than ideal. The bumper hangs relatively low and does not feature very strong recovery points, and the lack of winch mounting points means getting stuck can turn into an all-day ordeal. This is where Warn comes in with their new front bumper for Ranger XP 900 and XP 1000.
This new bumper from Warn is designed an OEM replacement and is very easy to install. With a sleek and minimalistic design, ground clearance and approach angle are much improved. Two recovery points allow for installation of D-ring shackles and light tabs allow for easy installation of aftermarket lights. Most importantly, this bumper is designed to accept a Warn Axon 45, Axon 55, or VRX 45 winch. For those who like to take their Ranger in places where getting stuck is expected, the addition of a winch could be a lifesaver.
