    Ryfab Windshield is Awesome!!!

    I knew the New Years trip to Dove Springs would be wet so I decided to add a windshield. I had the Ryfab on my RZR and i liked it, and Rocky Mountain had it for a good price with free shipping so I went for it.

    With the Speed Roof and Lightbar Brackets I had to modify it a little bit but it worked out really well. I never had a wiper on the RZR and that f-ed me a couple times so got the hand wiper with it this time. The wiper is wedged between the windshield and the front of the roof pretty tight but it did what I needed although an electric wiper with squirters would be better. I'll add 2 electric wipers and washer fluid squirters for the next wet trip. Probably next year.

    This was the end of a 90 mile ride

    It was less than 30* when we got back and the whole car was covered in ice.

    I was wearing a hoodie and no gloves the whole day.

    hey crawlr, our ryfab windshield is boxed inside our garage in colorado for us so we won't see it until may 2020...is there any modification needed if one has two seizmik side mirrors along with a textron rearview mirror?...we do have the textron full aluminum roof so we may need spacers on the upper front roll cage as well...looks great on your rig...

    Did you plug the air scoop hole also on the speed roof? and does that wind shield swing open?

    DeanTeck - The windshield is spaced out from the roll cage about 1/2" so the mirrors should fit behind it. Mine do. At the top the frame slips under the top tube of the roll cage except for a tab in the center where the V-bars come together. If your roof stops at the front tube you should be good.

    NDHotbodies - I made a plug for the scoop when I had a rear window because the air would go through the scoop and right down your back. I did not have the rear window or the plug for the scoop on this trip and I didn't need them.

    I installed a Ryfab windshield on my 2018 xx last winter. I have a cloth roof and 2 siezmik side mirrors. It fit well and was good until it warmed up. The open bottom frame doesn’t let in enough air to keep you cool or the dust out in warm weather. I modified mine by putting hinges on the top and a small winch to open it. Now works great in all temperatures.

    Because it is above horizontal when open all the way it funnels more air into the cab than without it. The hinges are bolted into existing holes in the windshield frame and are easily removed. I put stops on the lower hinged portion because it came up too far when partially opened and blocked the view. The window is heavy enough that it doesn’t bounce on rough going, but wouldn’t want to do jumps.

    There are brackets that mount with the cage bolts at the front. The windshield mounts to those brackets and has a couple clamps at the top. I can have it off in five minutes.
