The calendar says it’s riding season, making now the optimum time to accessorize your side by side for your upcoming off-road adventures.

We explored the offerings of our friends at PowerSports Place, and came up with seven accessories that you should consider adding to your UTV to make the most of your riding experience.

Spring 2014 Buyer’s Guide 

Winches (4,500-pound)

Because of the extra weight of your side-by-side compared to quads and other light off-road vehicles, you will need to choose only 4,000-pound and higher capacity winches for your UTV. (Read: How to Choose a Winch.) They are the perfect tool to get you out of the stickiest situations.
