2021 RZR Pro XP 4 Ultimate

Hi all. This is my first post on sxsnation. I'm making the transition from jeeping to SXSing. I just took delivery of a RZR PRO XP 4 Ultimate. The boss gave me a budget for upgrades so I'm hoping yall can share your experience and thoughts on what to mod. I come from a mid-Atlantic rock crawling background so even though I didn't get this rig specifically for rock crawling, it's inevitable that I'm gonna crawl at some point. If someone asked me how to build out a crawling Jeep, I'd say RCV axles, beadlockers, lots of armor, re-gearing, etc. Does the same idea apply to the RZR? What do you suggest as top mods to make to make this a reliable and improved crawler?

I don't do a ton of rocking, but I would think some bead locks, UHMW skids, tree kickers/ nerf bars. A lot of guys upgrade the cages. All in all I think the Pro's are super well outfitted from the factory. If you plan any power upgrades, clutching follows that. It also follows any big jump in tire size. Personally I like to have a basic enclosure like roof, windshield and back panel (not sure what the ultimate comes with). So may ways to take it. Take a look at my build thread on my General. If you have any questions or want more info on what I've done, I'd be happy to share.
My build was mainly for Michigan trail riding with an occasional trip to TN/ WV, etc. Basically a good all around machine.
