Here's a pic of my new Mule Pro-Fx w/EPS. Have a winch, brush guard and rear bumper on the way. Thinking of making my own roof.

Youíll love it

Before making your own roof , make sure the windshield you want will work with it

Not sure if I want a windshield, but would be nice in the winter, Thermos don't work through a windshield. Would have to go with a fold down version. thinking of doing something like this in the bed. http://www.delriopowersports.com/--kawasaki-ranch-package

I would get a fold down then - will freeze your rear off otherwise IMO - I do not like being cold! LOL

The windshield will protect against wind and most important rain. There are several flip up ones.

Should be some examples at the trophy hunters shows next month

A good roof and window are the most important things Iíve done

In Texas, a good roof for shade trumps a windshield!

You might consider making your own roof.
Here is one I did for my old Mule.
I extended in over front/rear for more shade!
I welded 4 race car tabs on roll cage to mount it and it has 3/4" exterior plywood roof/floor painted with porch paint so it will live.

It serves multiple duties around the ranch and race track.
1st and most important it's a nice big roof for shade for my old butt!
2nd it's a rack to hold ladders, boards, stand legs, etc.
3rd, it's a deck. I stand on it to fill feeders. I stand on it at the races and carry extra tires. It has stake pockets on all 4 corners and I put a chair up there and varmint hunt from it. I use it like a portable scaffold when working on blinds, tree stands, etc.

This one is a utility rack and while fully functional, it's not real purty but I'm sure somebody could fab something up for you that would complement that fine ride.

Ouote "In Texas, a good roof for shade trumps a windshield"

Then you have never driven to or from your stand in a rainstorm with no windshield during the winter - no fun

A windshield in the winter and none in the summer.

At this point in my life, hunting ain't that important...but when it was, I walked...and it was uphill both ways!
In all seriousness, I do use it year around if it's not raining so shade wins for me.
