I know doors are a hot topic right now and I am in the market for some to put on my new 2011 RZR S. I know I am going to get alot of opinions but that is what makes this forum so great.

I think you're going to get varying opinions on this... But, I have the Pro Armor, and like them. The UTV Inc doors are new enough that I doubt many people have had a chance to review them fully. That being said, UTV Inc makes very nice, and very durable products, and I'm sure they will be an equally durable product as the Pro Armor doors.

In the end, decide based on what looks the best for your application, and buy a set. You can't go wrong with either.

I have seen the pro armors not open when the RZR is on a hill or crooked, looks like UTV have a better latch system that may work when the RZR is crooked.
BTW I love ProArmor, have their nerf

In my opinion, it boils down to the latch. If my FUTV doors had better latches they would still be on my RZR as I think they are fantastic doors that don't add a lot of weight.

In comparing the two, Pro Armor and UTV Inc's doors both offer exceptional build quality in terms of materials and welds, so they are equal in that area. Where I think the UTV Inc doors beat everything on the market at the moment is their fantastic latch mechanism and the ability to remove the door in seconds without tools. Until you've had your door un-expectantly pop open while negotiating rough terrain or while hauling down the road at 70 mph, most people probably don't put much consideration into what type of latch their doors use. It seems most people are concerned more with how they look than anything else. So given the choice between two fantastic looking and built doors, I'd have to go with the UTV Inc doors based on their latch design.

I ride a number of different terrains and have never had a
problem with popping open or binding.

I latch/unlatch my doors all the time and it takes me approx 2 seconds.

Never plan on riding w/o my doors so they don't need to come off.

My vote is for the aluminum original, not the carbon steel 'copy' that hasn't even been on the market more than a few weeks.

I'm a little confused, but I'm happy with my Factory UTV doors, they have been on my RZR since July of 08. I get positive comments everywhere I go!

Not sure anyone has even seen the new UTV Inc. doors yet or installed them besides UTV Inc. so how would anyone have an opinion?

hes not asking about FACTORY UTV doors, hes asking about UTV INC vs PRO ARMOR doors.

maybe a mod can change the title..?!
Done!
Thank's I didn't want to harm the thread, but it was a little confusing.
I still like my doors, but other doors are out their! My latch mods help!

just so I know what would be a draw back on utvinc doors for you ?
Weight of steel construction as opposed to aluminum and lack of netting. The latter actually is my biggest concern as I rarely would drive fully skinned if I didn't have to. The former is less of a concern as your tubing appears narrower.

The latch system, though, is pure gold. Looks like it will easily allow door flex as it will slide. Plus it avoids my fear--mis-drilling the holes.

I only wish folks local had them so I could see each.

I have a set of factory UTV doors on my 08 RZR but I hate the latching mechanism but love the doors. It has popped open several times. I really don't want this to happen on the '11 RZR S. I appreciate all of the input and I beleive I have narrrowed it down to the UTV doors.

well to answer the weight question.. our doors are lighter then pro armors by 3 pounds... so we can get over that right now. =]

thicker walled tubing over larger diameter make a difference, we could build them out of 2" but use thin wall.. its all about what its made of, not how BIG it is.

we offer them with an aluminum "net" design to allow visibility.

no drilling required with ours..

any more questions i can help with, let me know.
