Hey guys, new here and had a question about back end weight on a Polaris RANGER 500 or 1000. I tried calling the dealers and manufacture but all I could get was dry weight.
does anyone know the back end weight of one of these? I’m putting an implement on the receiver and need to know what lb spring to use. If I had one I could back it up on my warehouse scale but am out of luck.

About W.E. Rock
The sport of World Extreme Rock Crawling or W.E. ROCK as it is known to our fans is all about challenging driver and machine. Competitors build amazing vehicles to drive over the most extreme obstacles our world renowned course designer, Josh England, can dream up. You will see vehicles perform maneuvers you never thought possible. Conquering large boulders, steep climbs, rock ledges and massive drops, all while avoiding strategically placed cones. Depending on the class the competitors choose to compete in their vehicle must follow some basic build rules and safety requirements. The rules are designed to keep each class fair while allowing the builder freedom to engineer the most competitive vehicle they can. Once on the course the driver and spotter have 10 minutes to navigate 3-4 gates (set of cones) without hitting any cones and as few backups as possible. Each cone hit or backup they take adds points to their score and the team with the lowest score wins. The courses are designed to provide the most action for the spectators throughout the weekend and force drivers to push what they have built to the limits.

This Weekend the SCORE championship off road racing series held round three with the Rosarito Desert Challenge. The race took place in the beautiful coastal town of Rosarito Beach just a short trek south of San Diego in Baja California MX. The race is a multi-day heat format with various race groups competing in two heats, one on Friday and a repeat schedule on Saturday.
Tech and contingency was held right on the main street through town then looped down to the beach in front of the famous âPapas & Beerâ. While not on the same grand scale as the Iconic Baja 500 and 1000 this race offered a very scenic low stress atmosphere for a race that promises to be a popular event in years to come.
The Jagged X crew arrived on Thursday morning and enjoyed the great weather while breezing through the tech line. After a nice early dinner the team wrapped up a couple last minute details and were feeling confident for the first day of racing. The UTVâs made up the second group of racers along with the class 7 race trucks. The trucks would start first but with a 5 minute gap between classes the dust was not too bad at the start. The Jagged boys pulled the short straw in the draw and were the last turbo class UTV to start. The tight twisting course would prove to be a challenge but all the while showcasing the capabilities of the Polaris RZR. Just a short 10 miles into the first lap Brandon and Co-driver Chad Hummer would have a slight disagreement in line choice for a particularly rough section. It would turn out that the choice was a bad one and the 2919 RZR would end up on its side in a deep rut off course. Chad was able to rock the car over far enough to allow the team to claw their way back onto the course with the help of their BFG KR 2 UTV tires and after looking the car over they were back in the hunt but had given up some valuable time. With each days race being barely over 60 miles the loss in time was insurmountable and they finished day one in 6th place. The crew was able to take some time insuring that the race car was still at 100% and Brandon and chad were now ready to go for day 2.
For the second day of racing the field would be inverted and the larger class 7 trucks would start in the rear. This meant that the 2919 Jagged X car would be the very first off the line. This coupled with some very useful knowledge of the course from day 1 it would allow the team to jump out to an early lead. Brandon set a blistering pace and laid down a flawless second day, leading from flag to flag with nothing but dust in the rearview mirror. In the end, the first place day two coupled with the lost time from day one would leave Brandon Schueler just off the podium with a fourth place final spot.Congratulations to the podium finishers who made the top four spots in the turbo class all POLARIS RZR. And Congratulations to Polaris teammate Marc Burnett whoâs time put him in eighth place overall in the four wheeled classes. Jagged X sends a huge thank you to Polaris RZR and to all our product sponsors who make our teams success possible.
