I have 2 boxes from polaris. Remove stock seats and they pop right in my four seater. Have not really stocked them yet as this is all new to me. Only issue I dont like is they wont open all the way when in back seat. They hit the cross bar.

I just saw the lock and ride box's for the back seats. I think one would be enough and then a the Milwaukee pack out for the bed.

Now what do we put in them. I want to carry anything and everything I might need. Ball joint press slide hammer ect

Murphy says to pull a spare machine behind you then; because Murphy says that whatever you have with you will*NOT* be what breaks.

OK thank you will definitely look into it. Not gonna have what happened this past weekend happen again.
They’re not cheap. I have one in mine backseat. I put tool bag spare belts tierods radius rods and rain gear in that box. If I do it over I’d go with a toolbox like I have in the back or pack out boxes like rzrjoe has in his backseat. We carry enough tools to completely take apart a rzr lol. Except a clutch puller...

Some of the stuff we ride if you break and can't fix it you're screwed. So we've learned over the years what to carry. You can never carry everything possible so the most common stuff:

Nuts & bolts (all suspension)
Heim joints (tie-rods)
Front / rear axles
Ball Joints
Fuses
Relays
Fluids
Belt

Tools - everything I need to fix just about any part of the machine
ratchet straps
shackles / tow straps
jack
chain saw (depending on location)
XLarge zip ties
Loctite
Plumbers Goo
Tire repair stuff


Safety:
First aid kit
Food & emergency items incase we are stranded

Not going to list everything because it would be waaaaay too long.

The list gets long fast but try to run every scenario and prepare as much as possible.

My idea of storage:

Thank you guys the list is growing the ideas are flowing. I appreciate you guys taking the time to share your thoughts. I have a lot to learn when it comes to SXS stuff. I kinda jumped into this Hobbie head first. 3 months ago. I bought the best machine I could get poured some cash into aftermarket but was to damn cheap to buy some tools and things I needed to get ack to camp. I love to ride and live life on the edge.
But I found out first hand not being prepared was down right foolish and could of cost me a very nice machine. I've raced hair scrambles and rode sleds for years. So I have that extreme riding nature in me. But some of the situations I've been in these last few trips I'm lucky all I broke was ball joints. I will now carry as many tools and parts as I can. I will also have my glock with me at all times.

What tools do you recommend? Like smallest to biggest sock size do I need metric and standard? Any special tools outside of slide hammer ball joint press. Tools I wouldn't think of cheater bar? Number one tool you don't leave home with out.
