Desert bumper on 2019 TRE

Hello. Recently purchased a 2019 trails and rocks edition. Long story short when I got there the dealer didnít know it came with a front bumper so they did somethings in the computer and were able to give me the new desert edition front bumper instead. Which Iím stoked about. Problem is the front skid plate actually bends up alittle in the front end and the bumper hits that as well as the fair lead on the winch is a different one not allowing the back plate of the bumper to be installed on it. Iíll get pictures soon but does anyone have experience installing a different bumper on one of these the shop guys couldnít even figure it out while we were there. Do you guys typically cut the skid plate in the front? Thank you for your time. Iím loving it so far hoping to take it out tomorrow but without the bumper for now

Wonder if you have the wrong bumper for the machine. I installed a Polaris bumper and it was so simple on a 18 XPT 1000 Dynamix.

In their computer it said it should fit the 2019 xp1000 trails and rocks and on Polaris website says it should fit

Wrong bumper like how? Like an older model bumper? I just didnít know I had to cut the hmw skid plate and the bolts on the upper part near the winch donít line up. I could call back and ask but of course the dealer through the box away so I have no way of seeing if itís the wrong one

Re: Desert bumper on 2019 TRE

Some thing is wrong with the bumper. Mine almost installed itself. Everything lined up. Could be old stock or boxed wrong. Ask dealer if they have another and return it for not fitting.

Re: Desert bumper on 2019 TRE

If it is the correct bumper, the vertical braces sort of follow the fangs and there will be a loop over the center that goes hood high. The older bumper is completely different looks wise.

The front skid will probably not fit the new bumper. It's made for the bull bumper. The winch mount for use with the bull bumper may be your problem. Not sure?? Since the dealer is clearly at fault, have them contact Polaris and see what they need to do to make the desert bumper fit.

From what I can tell it is the winch that is the problem. The front plate is not allowing the bumper to sit right or line up. Was told there is two different types of mounts but no one of course carries it or just throws the second one away when they get the winch.

Re: Desert bumper on 2019 TRE

Why not go with this bumper and mount winch up front:https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p...er-p?s=1158689

Had winch inside, had to move it outside away from all the engine heat.

Are you real sure about that. I have in on a 2018. No major change in 2019.

The Ď19 has fangs and a completely different front end. Doesnít look anything like a 2018.

Well I didnít have to buy the desert bumper. It was given with the purchase because the trails and rocks bull bumper was not on it when I picked it up from the dealer so they game me this one

Well the Polaris website says that bumper will fit the 2019 rzr trails and rocks. When it asks for vehicle fitment. So unless the dealer gave me an older bumper. But by the looks of it itís the newest bumper
