utv-windshields-04Vented - Venting can be added to UTV windshields to regulate air flow and back draft effect.

Adding vents to UTV windshields is a great way to have maximum protection while still having decent air flow. If the vents are placed correctly - they can reduce turbulence caused form the back draft at higher speeds.

Where the Deals Are.

You can spend a lot of time looking for a deal, or you can just go straight to Ebay. Since there is so much competition among sellers, that's usually where you'll find the best deals.

If you don't like the auction format, a lot of UTV businesses now have online stores on Ebay. And the prices are better than on their regular web sites!

Sellers take the feedback system seriously, so everybody tends to "play nice" to keep their ratings high. Just make sure the sellers have a good track record and have been doing business for a while. That's actually good advice for buying from anyone.
