you close that thing up with doors and a heater isn't necessary IMHO … in fact you'll be opening a window /door to let some heat out or it will be raining inside

winter gear is an important investment choose wisely and you ready for all seasons ride … I'm like Mike winter - temps aren't a big deal .. my rig is not fully closed up as I have half doors and no heater, but clothed up right and it down right warm in there as the darn engine will damn near run ya out. I do have to remove the summer time insulation I install as it's toooo hot in summer in side .. when it's 90-100 outside it will cook ya without the insulation.

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

it don't come cheep but well worth the investment if ya like the outdoors … in my case it's hunting gear also , but they have non hunting type material also that is like snowmobile or hell just plain cold weather gear.

spend a full day out in sub zero temps and ya better have high quality gear or cut your hunt short and arrive back at the truck freezing cold and that lasts for hours.

think I spent over a hundred bucks for my gloves alone

Nice ride, Gary that looks like a HDX I don't think he'll get the same engine heat that you get since it sets back farther.

my only 'sperience with SxS's is friends Rhino and my A/C .. both configured about the same open with roof and shields .. mine much hotter than his but either are warm after the engine warms up with spirited runs

sorry if my experience doesn't hold true for others, but the clothing will help a bunch and makes a non usable rig usable in sub zero temps.

BTW did not take any negatives on that reply as a slam so no worries .. sometimes I-net replies don't give meanings in replies >
