Here are 6 of the top UTV accessories you should know about:

For Peace of Mind

First and foremost, if you choose to add only one or two things to your side-by-side, may we recommend picking safety equipment. Being prepared is always a good idea on the off-road.

2 Just In Case Rescue Hard-Case Med-Kit

Of course, having medical supplies on-hand in case of injuries off-road is just good practice. It’s not necessary to store them in a hard-case, but it’s not a bad idea, especially if you regularly go through rough terrain.

A hard-case can also be easier to manage and look through when needed. This one also has the added bonus of coming in different colors to stand out or match the style of your side-by-side.

Small and Helpful Items

Once you’ve been out enough, you’ll come to realize that UTVs don’t always feature basic items you’d expect. Picking up a couple of small and helpful products can make trips that much easier.

3 Spring Brake Thingy Parking Brake

You can kill two birds with one stone, so to speak, with Spring Brake Thingy’s parking brake. Not only does it allow you to lock your brake pedal into place to avoid damage when parked on a hill or incline, it features pre-machined holes for a pad-lock.

Keeping your machine more secure and safe starts with this small and helpful product. Once you have it, you won’t know how you managed without it before.
