HI! We are the proud new owners of a used '08 XTX 700. Want to add jump seats to the bed so we can haul the kids around. So now I'm trying to figure out which extended roll cage/jump seat to buy and what to do about a soft top?

I haven't found much in the way of aftermarket soft tops for the Prowler that would extend all the way to the back to provide shade for my kids.

Wondered if any of you have had success with trying to use a soft top from one of the other UTVs? If yes, which one and what roll cage solution did you choose?

I need to make a decision quick since we are leaving for a trip to Colorado in 4 weeks!!!

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Sorry to see that you don't seem to be getting a lot of help. I haven't got my cage figured out yet. There are several things that I think one should consider for that. Do you want to add a rear section to your original cage? If so, round or square? If you want to go through the extra expense of replacing the entire cage, then you can make the cage a little shorter if needed to fit in a trailer etc. You could also get rid of the bars behind the seats in some cases. Also, either with an add-on or complete new cage, do you still want to be able to tilt the bed? I am going to build my own, but that really isn't an option for most. I don't know where you are from, but you can probably find a 4x4 or race shop near you that can help you with a custom built cage or extention. Deeonding on where you live shipping for something like a cage can be quite costly. I built my own seat brackets and mounted them to the original bed mounting points. I used a pair of OEM Prowler seats that Rigid Industries removed from one they did. If you are planning to upgrade your front seats to something better, then you would have an extra pair of seats. Its nice that my seats all match, but it would be nice to have high back seats for the rear, since their are no headrests. Good luck, I hope you enjoy your Prowler as much as I do mine.

Thank you for your reply!

I appreciate all the info!!! Looks like we have our work cut out for us in upgrading the Arctic Cat...but it is definitly a fun thing to work on!! I have a feeling it can become quite an expensive hobby!! :happy:

I am going to start checking around in Oklahoma and see if I can find a 4x4 or race shop that we can talk to about custom stuff. Thanks again for all your advice!
