New2015 HDX need help

Hey Guy's Im new to the prowler forum. This will be my first prowler , but not my first AC. Im going to pickup a 2015 700HDX. I have one dilemma. I would like to do just a half cab for know. No doors. I was leaning towards the lxc vs vxc. I would get the windshield roof and rear window . I like the lxc since both front and back windows open. I figured it would help with airflow in the summer month vs the VXC with just top vents and no rear wind to open. Is it really worth the extra money to have these features? Also would it be easy to take the doors on the LXC model of and on if I add them later? Any ideas would be appreciated thanks

Welcome to the forum. I don't have any experience with those cabs but I do have a fixed windshield and wish I either had a tilt up or vents for summer riding. I can roll up the back window on my soft cab which helps but you'll get a lot a dust sucked in going down gravel roads.
There's several HDX owners on here that can be of more help.

Welcome HK45, you picked a good machine! Best site going! I have a AC windshield with the vents, makes a world of difference. Closed for winter, and open for summer! As far as Removing, and installing the doors, I think it is easy to do. Just need to make sure the doors are for a round tube HDX (2012-Current)

2009 700EFI XTX, , AC Winch, 2010 Dust Shield EPI Sport Utility Clutch Kit , Street Legal, Cage chopped 2 ", Aluminum Diamond Plate Trim, Relocated Factory Bladders with covers, 5 Pt. Harness installed, Bed Tiedown System, Scat Pro-Car Seats, Secondary Battery installed, Oil Pressure, Oil/CVT Temperature, Volt Meter & Water Temp Gauges installed with Dash Plate, Bighorns, ITP Black 212 Wheels. Tonneau cover. 750 Big Bore Kit, Web Cam, and Rocker Arms.

yes if your not into heavy woods riding IMHO only , plastic is a consumable windshield , stretches and attracts heavy dust like a magnet.
heavy woods riding might break the glass even though friends of mine who ride similar terrain have the glass ones.

short answer- no, but sure is nice to have.

I have seen a few cracked windshields on the trail, not sure if they were factory cat, but they were glass. Im pretty ruff with mine and the glass is still perfect all the way around. Not sure what it would look like if rolled it.


I have an older cab and the doors come off very easily.

They are very heavy if weight is a issue.
