Today, we're going over the installation of the Polaris Front Brush guard on the Ranger 900 XP. We're going to be using a 13mm open-end wrench, along with a 13mm socket, and also a 6mm Allen-head wrench.

The first thing that we need to do, after we've removed everything from the box, is we're going to install the 2 support brackets onto the existing bumper. You do that by putting those into place and using the supplied 4 bolts. Remember, we're going to leave everything loose for now. We want to make sure that everything fits together properly before we tighten it all up.

Now we can go ahead and put that middle piece to the brush guard into place. Remember that it's going to sit in between the 2 brackets that we just installed. We're going to leave these bolts loose, as well. The next step is to just remove the caps from the stock bumper, and then we're going to install the slide blocks onto each side of the brush guard. Go ahead and get enough threads in there to hold it, but we're not going to tighten anything just yet. I want it loose so it can slide into the stock bumper, into place. We're just going to go ahead and install both sides of the brush guard. Notice how that slides into the stock bumper for mounting and support.

Once we've got those into place, we're going to make sure everything's aligned properly, and we can go ahead and tighten down the hardware. Make sure that everything's pulling together evenly and straight. We don't want anything binding up. Once we've got that center piece and everything tightened down, all the hardware, the next step is to secure the slide blocks into the stock bumper. Using our 6mm T-handle Allen-head, we want to tighten that bolt, securely tying both sides of the brush guard into the stock bumper. If you plan on running additional lights on the front of your machine, Polaris has provided you with a set of mounting holes on the center part of the brush guard to do that.
