UTV Fire Units.
The use of UTV's for Prescribed and Wildfire Operations have become invaluable for their maneuverability, quick response time, off road capabilities, and higher weight capacities and safety over ATV's.  Slip-on units or bed replacement units for any make or model UTV's are available.

       useful feature!!
