Decorating Your UTV: Dos And Don’ts

Buying a new UTV is a bit like buying a blank canvas. There’s so much that you can do with it that you might feel overwhelmed by all of your options! Here are just a few general dos and don’ts when taking a paint brush to your side-by-side for the first time.

Do: Showcase Your Personality

Maybe you’re an ex-marine with a lingering love of camouflage. Maybe you’re a proud female racer who would like pink swirls curling around your cab enclosure. There are no limits to the way that you can personalize and accessorize your UTV, so don’t be afraid to get creative with your designs. If you can dream it, you can do it.

Don’t: Go Overboard

If you already have custom-fitted lights on a top-mounted rack, you probably don’t need mood lights situated around your bumper too. Try not to get so excited by the prospect of decorating your UTV that you blow your budget or lose your common sense. Before making a purchase, ask yourself if it will serve a functional purpose as well as an aesthetic one.

Do: Incorporate Your Necessities

Speaking of functionality, you can have a lot of fun with UTV mods that also improve your driving experience. For example, you can find bucket seats that will raise your eye level while also feeling more comfortable during extended hunting trips. These dual-purpose accessories are a great investment for your future as a UTV owner.

Don’t: Forget To Have Fun

The flip side to buying valuable, durable accessories is that you can feel obligated to spend your money on the “good stuff” instead of the “fun stuff.” If you feel like you’re falling into this rut, remind yourself that it’s okay to splurge a little.

Do: Have Brand Loyalty

This is important in the world of UTV accessories because of potential compatibility issues between makes and models. Measurements might be different; power requirements might be different. Do yourself a favor and stick to the brand of your UTV manufacturer. For example, if you’ve purchased a Polaris Ranger, make sure that you’re buying Polaris Ranger parts and accessories.
