My non-honda SXS

This is our other ORV, a 2011 can-am commander.  I got it in early '16.  I had to fix several things on it when I got it, most notably and most expensively, I had to replace the gearbox.  But it has been a solid machine since I did that and upgraded several thing. Most recently, I built some winter doors to work with the factory accessory pro armor doors.  They're gull-wing style and as far as I can tell, unique.  Here's a link to the build log for those doors: https://www.commanderforums.org/threads/upper-doors-for-oem-pro-armor-doors.64516/#post-885529  Here's a few pics of the machine:

Thanks. As to the windshield, yes and no. Technically no in my case. It’s most commonly sold as a kolpin brand full tilt windshield. But it is also sold by can am as one of its windshields. Other companies sell it too. I believe the brand on my paperwork was new directions or something like that which sounded like a boy band.

Here’s one of my work rigs a highly modified Kawasaki Mule—unique NATO 28VDC single pin. I have a deployable light aircraft fueling system and some other goodies. Today I installed a RAK-15 ration and water heater. Who doesn’t want a hot canteen cup of coffee in the field?
