So getting ready to pull the trigger on a 2019 xp 4. My question is if you put a windshield on the front does it make the cab fill up with dust if you dont have a back windshield.
Might sound odd to some, but on the ranger crew like mine, if you have a windshield and don't have a rear panel on it tunnels the dirt right back in like a vortex. I defiantly want a windshield
just need to if I should by the back one at the same time. Thanks.

Not sure where you are located but around here there pretty much isn't anything you can do to avoid the dust. I have tried full and half windshields in the front. The full was much worse than the half for vortexing the air and dust right inside. Not sure how having a rear would help or not help. I have just given up and figured its part of the experience...

We had a front and rear on our 800 two seater and it was miserable . Went to a front only in the winter and none in the summer, a half windshield does a good job as well and sure is nice on cold morning rides

Yes, add a rear windshield.

It will fill with dust with just a front. BTDT. Had several friends warn me but I just had to try front only.

So did you put a rear panel on yours?

That exactly what happen with my ranger. Not that dust does not get in the cab regardless but without the rear glass you could not drive down the road without getting covered.

I have 1/2 windshield on my 17 xp4 and really like it. I ride sandy/dirt trails here in Michigan and have had it out in Colorado with no complaints. Had a full on previous rzr and it got to dusty and hot.

Yes. I put a rear on.

Tried it once with just the new front windshield. The back pressure from just a front windshield sucked everything back in.

Added the rear and the dust went way down. Not quite as good as nothing at all but, much better.

My buddies where right. If you add a front, you need to add a rear otherwise you get way more dust.


Here is a really cool helpful tip I use. Been using Milwaukee cordless tools for quite some time. They make a mini M12 cordless blower. I carry it most the time. Works fantastic to blow dust out mid trip or at the end. Sits right on the passenger floor board and does not get in the way of a passenger.

Really neat way to dust off mid trip or at the end.

Nifty idea...

You confirmed my thoughts on the rear window. It acts the same as on my ranger, major difference. I have a vented front window on my ranger and make a little difference in the summer, maybe all in my head but found one on super atv that was vented for a rzr so figure that is the way I will go.

We have an RYFAB front fold-down windshield with a vent in the bottom & a back window as well works great. We still get some dust. We also have half doors.
