Looking for a Cab and windsheild

Hey guys, fall is just around the corner here and the temps are going to start getting cold. I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions for enclosing my prowler to keep the cold weather out. I noticed on e bay that there was a full soft cab enclosure on there including soft windshield, doors roof and back window. the price is really right, just wondering what you guys recommend..

Thanks for any ideas guys, I never go wrong when I listen to the ideas on here

I bought a used '07 Prowler that came with a full windshield and factory soft top & doors. The doors don't seal very well at the bottom or the back, there's a about a 1/2" gap at the bottom. The doors use magnets to stay closed and one of the problems I had was with a strong wind they would come open while driving. The material does a decent job of keeping the rain out but you can sure feel the cold air come in with a strong cross wind. The back window is a plastic roll down attached to the roof. What brand are you looking at?

The hard factory cab's are extremely NOISY!
Look great but echo when you talk. And absoutly crazy loud when driving.
Would have to spend some $ on sound deader to knock it down.

Yep a guy in our group has a 09 700xtx with the factory hard cab kit.
I rode in it and it is loud inside and yes echo's all over the cab.
The factory soft cab is nice and ton's quieter.
The 2 in my group have had to install more snaps on the front cage pillar and use a bungee cord between the doors.... With those mod's done they trailer very nice and do not get torn up.

I have never seen a soft ft. windshield like the one almostx talks about so I cannot elaborate or give input on that.

I put a snap on the lower pull tab of the door and fastened it to the panel just under the seat. for some reason when the windows are up and going just over 40 mph on the road the doors will pop open about 6", I think it is a vacuum created from the flat windshield.

Makes me feel better about my soft cab, as for anything to deadened sound I've tried Dynamat XTREME and their Hoodliner on top of that on under side of the engine cover. Didn't do much good, I think most of the noise I have now comes from the gap between the bed and the seats.
