9 Top Four-Wheeler Accessories That You Actually Need
When we say four-wheelers, we’re referring to UTVs, or side-by-side vehicles as they’re also known. The thing with these machines is that they can benefit a lot from aftermarket parts and accessories, as most of them aren’t just for show, but also stability, functionality, safety, and even for working.
With that in mind, we want to show you some of the best accessories that your four-wheeler actually needs. No matter what your goals are, you’ll surely find some uses for the products showcased in this article.
Four-Wheeler Accessories for Improved Safety
As we have mentioned in previous articles, safety is the most important aspect when riding an ATV, UTV, or any other four-wheeler. The following accessories greatly improve this aspect.
1. Quick Release UTV Fire Extinguisher Mount
A small fire can quickly turn into your worst nightmare. If you’ve ever driven a car, you probably know how hard it can be to keep the extinguisher close by. The same problem arises when using an ATV or UTV. Thankfully, you can use the Quick Release UTV Fire Extinguisher Mount to solve this problem with ease.
It’s extremely useful both for wiping out an engine fire as fast as possible and for potential forest fires if you’re lucky enough to stumble upon one while it’s still in its inception. A two-in-one deal, basically.
2. Seizmik UTV Windshield Wiper Washer Kit
Installing a windshield is one of the necessary steps to turn your UTV street-legal. However, not all UTV windshields come with wiper and washing kits included. And we all know why a wiper and washer system is important, right? Rain, mud, dust, you name it. There are so many things that can block your vision and make the trip completely unsafe.
As for basic specifications, the Seizmik UTV Windshield Wiper Washer Kit provides 110º of wiper range motion to cover the entire driver's side of the windshield. The motion is powered by a two-speed motor and an automatic parking system that ensures the blade sits properly in its place after every use.
3. Dragonfire Racing 4-Point Harness
Getting properly strapped into a UTV is of unspeakable importance. Not only that, but you’ll probably also want to carry some extra stuff with you, and that’s when the multipurpose Dragonfire Racing 4-Point Harness comes into play. This UTV Harness incorporates comfort features like memory foam shoulder pads and adjustable sternum clips.
In short, it’s both comfortable and highly secured, making it practically perfect for all the purposes that a UTV harness could possibly serve. On top of that, it’s also quite affordable given the harness’s overall quality.
