UTV Cab Enclosures and Their Differences

cab enclosure for utv's and side by sides

With a 12V heater, you'll be shooting from the cab.

UTV cab enclosures are the best way to make your work and play time in your side-by-side the most enjoyable this winter. With that said, there are several different kinds out there.

“Hard” cabs are some of the best solutions available. They are extremely durable, using lexan for the windows and ABS plastic (automotive-grade) for the rest of the shell. The doors often swing open for convenience, or they can be un-bolted if things warm up. If you can afford this solution, it is a great way to go. But, you may not be able to as these cabs typically surpass $1000 in total cost, putting them out of reach of many machine owners.

Soft UTV Cabs can be a nice compromise for an enclosure if price is an issue. Made of thick polyester and PVC for the windows, these cabs use zippers for access, and while not as convenient as a hard cab, they get the job done at a fraction of the price. These will generally retail for $200-$250, and if you’re paying more, you’re paying too much. There are cabs for Polaris Rangers, Yamaha Rhinos, Teryx’s and most popular models. If cost is an issue for you, consider a soft cab and stay warm throughout the winter months.
