    2015 Polaris RZR 900 Trail

    Does anyone know if someone makes rubber flares for 900 trail? Every time I ride the bed gets filled with mud. I need to keep her at 50" because I like to ride tight trails. I was thinking of making a set out of 1/4" rubber flooring so if I scrape a tree they just flex. I am just afraid it will look like ****. [​IMG]

    I have actually considered that idea. I have a couple big truck mudflaps that I have been thinking on cutting in a way to make just this thing. I really wish someone would come out with something to plug all the nooks and crannies that the mud and whatnot gets into. I wonder if anyone has ever tried the space filling expanding foam....

    Caution on the expanding foam, it traps moisture! Found out the hard way! Truck mudflaps make for a good material, durable and moldable.

    I went to the local family farm and fleet store (like tractor supply) and bought a stall mat, used for horses to stand on. About 6mm thick and 3' x 5' in size for twenty bucks and some change. They are a heavy rubber mat, easily cut with my fillet knife. Made mud flaps on my S x S to block the openings where frame meets body and would fill with mud. Cleaned out over 30 lbs of mud one day and decided to make the mud flaps, no more mud collecting in the nooks and crannies, look good and flexible so no breakage.

    2015 Polaris Ranger XP EPS 900

    I made mud blockers for the whole bottom of my Ranger 900 that extend out about three inches on each side out of truck mud flap materiel from the truck stop. I was not just getting mud caked under the bed but my rear tire kicked up a rock a year back and busted my back window. it really exploded.
