    Farmboy, Guess I will throw my thoughts out there. What you hear about the half window is correct. I will be getting a full widow soon. I do believe you will need something on the rear. I too have experienced that dust and dirt whipping back around on our gator. The rear window cured it. We have a soft top on the commander. Great for easy off and on but, in less than a year it is stretched and faded. (I dont recommend a pro-armor soft top) We are moving to the hard top. Also I believe the soft top wont work with any light bar. I agree on the tools and strap. When people see the commander they dont hesitate to ask you to pull them out. Its a BEAST

    welcome Farmboy, I love my commander x I have not purchased a windshield yet and have been looking at folding windshields, tilt windshields and the full windshield. The reason for the first two is that the commander does put out some heat that is great when you are in a cool climate but sucks when it is over 90 where you are riding and the full windshield will keep more of that heat on you. I had a soft top made by Tite Top it was a real nice product but like other people say do not trailer it with it on, the last time I went riding I was the last to leave and I forgot to take it off and drove over two hundred miles with it still on the machine much of that at 80 mph or above as there are long areas of the interstate in Utah that are posted 80 mph. It was split the top and ruined it, totally my fault not the product itself. I ordered a hard top which I just received yesterday and will put that on. I am a paraplegic and it is hard to put on the soft top and take it back off by myself, so I decided on the hard top. Everyone has their own idea of what they like so it depends on if you like the sun on your head or not, if not a hard top is probably a better buy. Good luck with your machine and I hope you enjoy yours as much as I have mine. I drive a lot of mountain trails that are fairly narrow so I have not put the spacers on my machine and I am extremely surprised how I have not rolled it a few times. The one time that was real close was a stupid hey guys watch this moment, still can't figure out how I ended up sideways on the trail with only two wheels touching ground, but I did it. Damn no one was filming at the time it might have gone viral.

    after much thought and research i went with a half windshield that was from an aftermarket company, can't remember the name, and the crease is noticable but i am thinking most of the time i will be looking over it. i went with the can-am soft plastic back window, it fits good and tight, maybe a little too tight as when i put the seats back in the screws on the back of seats really gouge the plastic window. i can move the drivers side up a little but passanger seat is real tight. thinking of some sort of homemade rubber covers for the screw heads. i also went with the "tite top" soft top, it seems to fit very nicely and is easy to take off and on. thanks for the heads up mcmantim on the trailering. so anyway that is what i got on her and can't wait to try it out this spring. oh yea and the 2" spacers from super atv. she looks bad ash.

    Hope you enjoy the ride I love my commander Another thing you can do on the tite top is go to a hardware store and buy a plastic or fiberglass rod like those used to hold up reflectors at the end of a driveway and slide it into the front end of the tite top where they have made an overlap for that purpose. It just makes the front edge more rigid which can be good for low branches.

    thanks for all the replys. i plan on getting the fiberglass rod for the top, and the velcro idea sounds like it will work perfectly. one more ? What is this Low range sport switch? will this overide the fan to push hot air out? is it like a pc5?

    No it gives you all the power in low range. Sport mode only works in high range. Low range is 70% power.

    so the low range sport switch and the fan overide switch are two different things? where can a person get these switches? sorry but i'm confused.
