Rolled the RZR-S!!!

Couple of cracked welds on the rear suspension and a small crack in the plastics on the drivers side. We (by we, I mean I...) I rolled the RZR on President's Day weekend during a night ride. It rolled 7 times and came to a stop on it's wheels. Terry and I are fine, just a few bumps and bruises, but the 5 point harnesses did their job and kept us in the vehicle. It could have been A LOT worse. We are just happy that nobody got hurt.

I'm fairly sure that riding in the dark had a lot to do with it. I've been in some precarious situations with it in the daytime and never flipped it. That and I probably wouldn't have gone the route I was going if I could fully see-meaning simply, I probably would have dropped down the bowl instead of trying to climb the side of it.

Here's some pics of the RZR. Looks like it is just the drivers side rear upper control arm that needs replacement. The passenger side looks just fine as do the a-arms.

Has anyone else done something like this and who did you use for replacement parts like plastics and whatnot? (I'm not sure I won't do it again, so I want to be prepared... )
