Mud can be a badge of honor or a bad look, depending on how you use your UTV. Whether you’re tearing through honey holes or just trekking to the bayou through the brush, keeping the windshield, fenders, doors, hood, and bed clean is essential to keeping your rig running smoothly – and your costs down.
