This will be mostly for trail riding with the family, so what are some upgrades you recommend right off the bat?

Re: New HLE Owner

Looks great . Congradulations ! Looks like you already got a head start on some nice accessories. For safety get some harnesses (Wife and I like the click 6 retractable ones for ease of movement while riding) and some arm resraints to keep from accidently sticking arm out in case of a tip over. I bought some G-Force ones but have not got them hooked up yet. Also get some trail tires for your type of terrain. The factory mud tires handle horrible for trail riding. Also the High Lifter is known to be set up with stiff springs so for comfort get a new spring set up. ( I recommend Shock Therapy for that .Stage 3 or 4) Also for comfort get some door bags with the knee pad. I like the PRP ones. for night riding it's nice to have some a pilar mounted LED cubes pointing to the side and some back LED ones for backing up. If in lots of rocky terrain get a skid plate set up. I have not got one yet but it's on the list . Thats a good start , it is very addicting and always a work in progress. A wireless remote for the winch is also nice. It never ends . Most inportant is have fun and be safe out there.

Will I need any kind of battery upgrade to run lights, winch and audio?

Re: New HLE Owner

Coming from owning my HLE for a year, I would suggest changing out the tender springs. The HLE RZRs ride very stiff compared to other RZRs. I put HighLifter tender springs on front and Shock Therapy springs on back. Made a huge difference and got me a couple inches in height.

I also put the Walker Evans sway bar links and those helped even more with the ride. Doesn't rattle you teeth now LOL

2017 RZR 1000 Highlifter Edition - Shock Therapy rear tender springs, Walker Evans Links, Dalton Clutch Kit, Rockford Sub, & Powerbase Sound bar.

I'm running a two battery setup on mine. I have sound bar, light bar, winch, rock lights, & sub/amp and didn't want it all on the main battery. I left my winch hooked up to my main battery, all the other stuff I put on my secondary battery. That way your winch is always pulling off a fully charged battery and the accessories will pull off of the secondary one.

I am running all 3 of these plus some other accessories on the stock battery and have had no issues.

Best changes I made on mine were tender springs, tires, and seats. The stock seats will wear you out fast. The stock tires suck for trails. The stock tenders are too stiff. I love it now
