To start, on top of my list is Yamaha's cargo basket which should be tall enough to secure what I need it for.

Which accessories are you guys getting?

I'm most interested in reading your feedback from putting that plow to work, but of course we have quite some time to go before that.

How bad does it snow where you live on average?

Well, having lived in the same town, the snow is wet snow. It snows but then turns to slush or it rains and melts it. Often there is ice.

It's not like the snow build up that we get in the East.

Even though there is less of it, it's kinda harder to deal with.

Correct me or add if you'd like @Fisherhawk

I hate that kind of snow, no fun to bad had in it, also one of the reasons why I like to head up north, at least there you have conditions that are more than ideal to play in.... something i hope we get to see with these Kodiaks, and more of once the time comes around.

That along with slush which gets really messy.

Where i live it usually builds up a lot at the end of my driveway so being able to push that away with a plow on the kodiak will help... among other reasons for the plow.

I've got a rear seat and a trapper box up front from a buddy of mine that used to run them on am old sportsman 500. Looks great on the Kodiak and they let me carry plenty of hear and extra fuel. Got a 3000 lbs winch up front (Warn) and a spare Ranger 3500lbs winch with synthetic in the garage (may eventually install it as a rear winch) Would love a set of warmers for winter and maybe some kind of chainsaw boot that let's me keep my trapper box. Might have to make something.

Otherwise going to throw a small light bar up front and a pair of small floods out back for reverse lights.
