The plastic front bumper of your Pro R is bound to break from normal trail wear. It is a fact that plastic becomes more brittle the more time it is exposed to the elements. The more wear on your Pro R the more likely your bumper is to break when struck with debris.
For our bumper we wanted to have the ability to mount a winch, it has to protect your front end, and it needs to look good while doing it.
For starters we chose 1/4″ thick frame work for our bumper and 11 gauge steel for the outside shell. This thickness allows for protection from debris like sticks and rocks all the way up to minor collisions. The winch mounts with separate bracket that bolts straight to your machine, behind the bumper. That way the bumper shields both the winch and your machine. Our bracket supports multiple different winches. To wrap up this design we chose to powder coat our bumper black; this not only looks great but also protects this bumper from rust.
Bumper roughly weighs 30lbs without the winch attached.
Our bumper can come with any of our Warn Winches. These winches come in Warn Axon 5500 LBS, Warn VRX 4500 LBS, or Warn VRX 3500 LBS. Warn Winches are top of their class and proven to be reliable under all conditions, even submerged in water(IP68 rating). Warn winches come with everything you need to use them, for specifics of each winch, click the bolded links above. With a winch we highly suggest one our billet aluminum fairleads, or raw aluminum fairlead accents nicely with the black bumper.
The bumper always comes with winch mounting bracket, even if you don’t purchase the winch. Other winch models will also work with our bumper.
Our design uses the pre-existing mount holes found on your Pro R. Unbolt the stock bumper and bolt ours on. Our Polaris Pro R bumper will require you to cut some of the plastic hidden behind the bumper. This is an easy cut and can be done with a utility blade. If you decide you would like to go back to the original factory bumper you will still be able to use the factory bumper.
