    i am looking for any help on a cab for my 04 kody 450 . I have seen the moose version with the roll up doors and it is fairly cheap . This is going to be used for keeping me dry when i have to plow the driveway and i was thinking of making my own out of 3\4 pvc for the frame and using a piece of lexan or plexiglass for the front windshield , not sure for the top or sides yet. Is there any new products out there for this yet? thanks!!

    I run one made by http://www.atvcabs.net/
    got it Used NIB from Craigs list for $160.00 only thing I did'nt like was the side zipper doors didn't work the best so I made some changes and now mine hinges off the back rack of my quad and super easy to get in and out.

    pics off are here http://www.cardomain.com/ride/534733/22

    and here's a pic of the finished product.

    it works fairly well and I can plow snow now in the sub zero temps and stay warm.

    there's another poster on this site that hand bulit himself a ATV cab that is also a pretty nice set up.

    it's still in my head yet, it seems i am way busier this year, but less mad money around ,oh thatsright i am fixing up an old car lol,

    it is definately on the to do list but it's along list right now , and yea it will have one door , thats all ya need, well i need,

    as far as how did she hold up, i would say awesome considering i flipped her in the road, that was funny right there, i was turning around when i seen a car coming so i kinda got into her and she cart wheeled so i rode it out till the blade caught the hard snobank it was instant,

    i just stepped thru the opening and i flipped her back on her wheels and drove away, i cracked my windshield,

    i would take her down to my sister in laws at speed, right around50 mph, but you have to remember theres ablade on her and the aerodynamics of a brick lol

    i never did bolt her down, you can see it move in the vid haha, she is in the woods sitting right now still together.
