Winter is coming - Heaters, Heated Seats and Heated Steering Wheels Etc

I am leaning towards the items below. Feedback from people with experience at this would be appreciated.

Re: Winter is coming - Heaters, Heated Seats and Heated Steering Wheels Etc

I notice that you suggest the OEM enclosure and rear window. Do you have a factory cage? I have a CageWrx cage. I am not sure if I will have fitment issues.

No doubt a full enclosure is the warmest way to go. With that being said, I am not sure that I will like the full enclosure. Do you have issues with seeing out the side windows when they get muddy?

The OEM enclosure will not work with a aftermarket cage. I ride with my window down even when it's cold, it's plenty warm inside. Never really get mud on the windows. I like the OEM enclosure because you don't have to zip / unzip to get in & out.

Great. No side windows is exactly what I was hoping for. I didn't like the zip/unzip thing either. I'm sure it would fit like crap with my aftermarket cage anyway. I just didn't want to spend a bunch of money on everything else and still freeze my ass off because I did not have side windows.

Thanks Joe

Re: Winter is coming - Heaters, Heated Seats and Heated Steering Wheels Etc

I have a Firestorm heater in mine. LINKY

What really works good for me & the Mrs. is heated motorcycle gear. I have my Gerbings for my motorcycle. Just added 2 plugs in the RZR. Heated jackets, gloves and pants. Those keep us warmer than the heater. Gerbing LINKY

Check for heated snowmobile gear.

Re: Winter is coming - Heaters, Heated Seats and Heated Steering Wheels Etc

Windshield, heated seats and dress in layers works for me. I was getting ready to pull the trigger on a heated steering wheel and then all of a sudden they were no longer available.

The only other modification I would consider is heated gloves

Hey Gang,
We are the designer and manufacturer of FIRESTORM heaters and can offer the best prices direct to you as the manufacturer. Super ATV copied our heater kits (they acknowledge it.) That's fine....all is fair in love and free market I suppose. But we have better prices than them and offer fantastic support as the product designers.

Shoot me a PM with your model and what heater design (in cab or underhood) if you are interested. Thanks!

We all buy the heater cores from the same supplier, even the other guys selling the cheaper kits on AliBaba. That's about all they have in common. Everything else is basic mounting brackets, hardware, and HVAC ducting. But, do your thing man.

Re: Winter is coming - Heaters, Heated Seats and Heated Steering Wheels Etc

https://www.amazon.com/WATERCARBON-C...rumsconvert-20 these are awesome super simple to install especially if you have a pneumatic stapler. But do not use the switches that come with it.

Get these switches, the ones that came with the heated seat elements failed after about 2 months on mine and my buddies rig, most likely due to water and dirt/dust. https://www.amazon.com/Nilight-Heavy...s%2C254&sr=8-4

I have the hard coated poly from super atv, works great but find that i need a windshield wiper in the snow and rain. I will be going to a glass next.

I could see the heated steering wheel or gloves being handy on those cold days, but haven't got either yet.
