Well, stripped down my Commander before selling it & getting my Maverick. So, I decided to see what actually fit. The Factory UTV harness bar & UTV inc roof bolted right on. The Blingstar doors on the other hand took a little fab work but nothing major. I can give the details if anyone is interested. I just prefer the higher doors like the Blingstars and have only seen the Pro Armor/BRP low cut doors out so far.

Started to install my gauges but found the block to be slightly different where I had my oil temp sender in my Commander - I'll have to figure out some sort of adapter but other than that, I've already saved about $1200 in accessories

Sorry about the pic quality, I used my phone.

I don't know for sure, I've read somewhere they are different, and looking at the body panels I think the windshields are going to be different.

Can't wait. I like it when these engine/racing companies work on the new rides = new go fast parts.

Here's a little better pic of mine when I dropped it off at Factory UTV.

How do you like the blingstar doors? Im think im gonna go with those. I like how it deletes the plastic body panel behind the door.

I really like the Blingstar doors. They don't make them for a Maverick yet but on my Commander I prefered them to the Pro Armor, all the others I have no experience with. They did rattle a little but put a piece of heatshrink over the latch pin and they don't rattle anymore.

Blingstar wil be out with doors for the Maverick around Feb. They used mine for design work. I believe other parts will also be out around that time
Look for pictures

These are also my favorite doors. Does your left arm or elbow ever hit the door while driving?
I see the black tube that hold the hinges but is the black panel just behind it part of the door or did you make that panel black yourself?

The black panel is part of the door kit from blingstar. It allows the opening to be bigger than most the other doors out there.

Thanks.
Also, I think I read somewhere that these doors are made from all Alum material. Is this correct?
If I decide to use these doors I will have to make sure my custom cage is set up for them.

I haven't had any issues with hitting the door with my elbow and I drive all types of terrain. The black panel is part of the doors & the nice thing is the angles of the panels match the Mav panels.

They also look like they are wider in the front & rear than the other doors I have seen. Yes

I would also like more info on the fab work it takes to make them work. i should be getting my mav in the next two weeks. and if it is not too much work i will just buy the doors for the commander instead of waiting for the mav ones to come out.

also can you take a pic of the latch location. when i sat in a mav with the pro armor doors at the dealer my knee was only about 1/4" away from the latch and that would hurt like hell in the rough stuff.
