      Only you can decide your priorities on add-ons. But word of warning, it gets addicting and adds up quick. I primarily use my machine for the same things you mentioned (hunting with buddies, and trail riding with family).

      My machine is a 2018 HD8 Max DPS model, but has been pretty much converted to the XT model with even more add-ons (minus the upgraded seats and painted plastics).

      I've installed:
      • XT Dash cluster and storage bin (Nice, but not needed. Really more cosmetic).
      • XT full roof (gotta have IMO, at least some roof) SuperATV or others
      • XT winch (purchased harness and Superwinch winch without the CanAm decal / cheaper way to go, but have to do a little research on required parts. There is a thread on this that we have details). The winch is nice. I've already used mine. I think for as much as these machines weigh it would be good to have just in case
      • XT bumper only because I added a bumper light bar. I like the extra brightness of the light bar.
      • I purchased Beamtech H11 (I think it was) led bulbs. These are a must IMO. Brighter than stock and a bright white light, not yellow like stock. https://www.amazon.com/BEAMTECH-Hea...ld=1&keywords=H11+bulbs&qid=1600125124&sr=8-4
      • SuperATV front and rear windshield. I would prefer the glass oem, but they are so dang expensive. The SuperATV are nice to have for those cold hunting situations. And nice regular driving not to get beat up by wind in the face all the time.
      • oem Gun Boots and mounts. Very nice, but also very expensive.
      • oem rear cargo light (very nice to be able to see your gear in your bed on those early or late hunts)
      • Seizmik pursuit side mirrors (aluminum, nice and cheaper than oem)
      • oem rear view mirror (nice to have, but my gun boots block a lot of the view. So mostly side view mirrors now)
      • Battle Armor 2" bracket lift. Nice for a little extra clearance
      • XT full underbody skid plates. (just a little more protection)
      • oem Under Seat storage bins (nice to have)
      • front center seat Kolpin gun mount. Nice to have to hold a rifle in the cab on the hunts. There is some write ups on doing it yourself or you can purchase the kit pre-assembled from a company in Texas.
      • oem bed rails (really more of a cosmetic thing)
      • horse mat cut to shape of cargo bed (just helps to save the bed a little bit, but yours is probably already beat up)
      • aftermarket wheels (more of a cosmetic thing but it did bring the width back to normal due to the lift)
      • UNI filter in place of airbox vent tube (figured it would help reduce some of the dirt getting to primary filter / I run it dry)
      • cargo nets in front of rear passenger seats (cheap)
      • cargo nets on dash (cheap)
      • oem front aluminum skid plate (found a good deal)
      • oem 3 mode switch
      • Mud-Busters mud guards for under the cargo bed
      Might be something I'm missing, and I'll add if I am.

      Things I still want is primarily doors, but they are super expensive. I'm looking at options that have half doors, but could potentially convert to full doors. Would be nice on those cold hunts.

      Hello everyone,

      I'm looking to upgrade the headlights on my 2016 Outlander Max 650 and I read here that most recommendations are either for the Beamtechs on Amazon (currently $58 for the 4) or the Ridroids on eBay ($17 for the 4).

      I understand the price difference is big (~$40) and that you get what you pay for, but for those that purchased either or both, can you please let me know how happy you are with them and which ones you recommend?

      Thanks.

      I went for a drive at dark yesterday and the headlights just don't really light everything up like I would've thought.

      I looked at RJWC, and I just can't spend $700 on a set of headlights.

      Is there any cheaper alternatives? Like LED bulbs?

      I did do some looking around on the forums for renegades, but only found solutions for the outlanders.

      Thanks
      I went with Beamtech LED high and low beam headlights and couldn't be happier. Check out my thread:Beamtech High/Low Beam LED Headlights Install

      Link to them is https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XHD4HV3/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XHDYTGL/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

      Total cost was around $60 back then.

      Thanks for the response,

      These will fit a 2021 renegade no problem? Do those come in a pair of two, or just 1? Is one link the high beams, and the other the low beams?

      I am looking to put Beamtech bulbs in but I can’t get a straight answer on which bulbs to put in the lowbeams and highbeams on my renegade.
      After doing some digging around on the forums, here's what I figured out.

      The highs are https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XHD4HV3/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

      And the lows are https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XHDYTGL/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

      Just to save you the troubles I went through lol
