I am pretty much done (I think) I just could not pass up the deal Ball Equipment has on the seats. 50% off right now. I do plan on upgrading bumpers and getting rid of the aluminum skids in the near future.

Well after my first ride with the FlexSteel seat, I have to admit, it is very nice. It did take me a while to get used to it as it sets a lot higher than the factory seat making the tilt steering virtually useless.

It made the Crow 4-point harness actually fit and feel a lot better on the shoulders because the back is higher than the stock and although they still keep you in place, they did not dig into my shoulders like before.

I was able to rig up a ratchet strap to hold my Polaris Center Console so I was happy with that as well.

I question if they would be as comfortable with a large person because of the way they are made. Being I used to be 400+ pounds, I really do not think I would like them at all. Now being 200# they are very comfortable.

I am disappointed that the driver side seat does not flip up as I thought they did. You have to remove the seat to get to the storage under the seat.

It does adjust forward and back so now me at 6' and my wife at 5' can drive the ranger.

I only got ~40 miles on the ride due to another rider breakdown and I took them back to Ride Royal Blue. I hope to have a good 80+ mile test in the coming weeks and will update again.

Thanks for the update. I never knew you could buy an aftermarket bench for the Ranger.

I'm a lil bit jealous of the tool box, that's the shee-iiii-it!
I'll have to get a bed stretcher for it to fit in mine.

Got the new Backwoods Armor Arched A-Arms installed and a 2" lift. Not too bad of a job. I actually traveled down to their facility so that they could do some measurements for some things to come.

Here is before

Very cool Phil!!! However, it would have been a lot cheaper if you just let nocerisdave take the ranger out for a ride. He would have bent the a arms for you for free........ PWM's Ranger XP 800 - Page 3 13435
