Mounting Instructions

Step 1 - Remove the Driver Seat Adjustment Buckles.

Begin removing the driver seat by undoing both of the adjustment buckles with the red pull tabs. 

Step 2 - Disconnect Connector Under Cup Holders.

Use a plastic trim removal tool to pry up the front of the plastic cup holder and pop it out of place. Once removed, set the cup holder aside.

Looking down into the area where the cup holder was, locate the connector with blue tabs (circled in red). Reach in and disconnect it. Then feed the end that attaches to the safety harness out from under the center console and towards the driver seat. 

Step 3 - Remove Driver-Seat Safety Harness.

Feed the safety harness through the back of the driver's seat.

Step 4 - Remove the Driver's Seat.

Remove the driver's seat by pulling the release handle (circled in red) and tilting the seat forward, up, and out of the vehicle.

Step 5 - Connect Battery. 

Use a 10mm socket to connect the red wire from our harness to the positive battery terminal and the black wire to the negative battery terminal. Then tuck the relay next to the battery so it is out of the way.

Step 6 - Remove Center Console Bolts.

With a 10mm socket, remove the four bolts (circled in red) along the bottom of the driver's side of the center console. 

Step 7 - Remove Driver-Side Kick Panel Bolts and Clips. 

With a 10mm socket, remove the two 10mm bolts (circled in red) on the bottom of the driver-side kick panel. 

Then use a plastic trim removal tool to remove the two clips (circled in blue).

Step 8 - Remove Shifter Trim Bolt. 

Lift up the rubber shift cover and use a T40 Torx bit to remove the bolt circled in red below. Then remove the shifter trim. 

Step 9 - Route the White Connector Lead.

With the switch disconnected from the wiring harness, route the white connector lead from the battery under the center console into the cup holder area. Then continue routing the connector down and around the shifter and toward the fire wall. 

Note: Be sure to route the connector around the shifting bracket, not through it. 

Then continue routing the lead towards the firewall and out of the hole (circled in red) at the back of the passenger side kick panel. 

Step 10 - Remove Switch Blank.

To mount the switch, use a pick tool to pop out one of the factory switch blank covers.

If you're going to use the included round toggle switch, use a pair of flush-cut pliers to trim the key slot off of the switch as shown below. 

Then use the step bit to drill a hole in the switch blank cover to about 20.5mm, or until the toggle switch fits snuggly. 

Feed the white lead of the switch through the drilled hole on the front of the switch blank. Then press the switch into place, making sure the double lines on the switch are on the top half of the switch blank cover. 

Step 11 - Connect and Mount Switch.

Route the switch lead from Step 9 through the back of the switch panel where the switch blank was removed. Then connect the lead to the switch and press the switch into place.

Step 12 - Route DT Leads.

From the battery, route the DT leads under the plastic coverings and up the driver's side B-Pillar towards the roof of the vehicle.

Then route the DT lead toward the front of the roof using zip-ties to hold it in place.  

Step 13 - Assemble SS5 CrossLink Light Bar.

Before moving forward, you'll need to assemble your SS5 CrossLink LED Light Bar. Watch the video below for more information on how to assemble the SS5 CrossLink LED Light Bar.


Note: While assembling the CrossLink LED Light Bar, use the second notch on the links to appropriately curve the light bar. 

Step 14 - Remove Roof Bolts.

Use a T40 Torx bit to remove the four bolts (circled in red) from the roof.

Step 15 - Mount Roof Brackets. 

Beginning on the passenger side of the RZR, bolt the roof bracket in place with the feet going toward the center of the vehicle using the factory hardware removed in Step 14. Leave the bolts hand-tightened for now.

Repeat this step to install the driver's side roof bracket. 

Step 16 - Adjust Mounting Brackets.

Take a tape measure and adjust the roof mounting brackets so that the outer edges are about one inch from the roof panel edge on both sides. 

Once the brackets are adjusted, use a T40 Torx bit to tighten the bolts down.

Step 17 - Mount SS5 CrossLink LED Light Bar.

With help from another person, bolt the SS5 CrossLink LED Light Bar to the roof brackets using the supplied 10mm bolts. Leave the bolts hand-tightened for now to allow for aiming adjustments later. 

Step 18 - Plug-In SS5 CrossLink LED Light Bar.

Plug the DT lead (routed to the roof in Step 12) into the open DT receptacle on the SS5 CrossLink Light Bar wiring harness. Then test the function of the lights. 

Step 19 - Aim the Light Bar.

Make aiming adjustments by tilting the SS5 CrossLink LED Light Bar up or down. Once aimed, tighten the six 10mm bolts installed in Step 17 all the way down. 

Step 20 - Reassemble the RZR.

Reassemble the RZR by reversing the steps used to take it apart. Make sure to zip-tie any loose wiring to keep it away from hot or moving parts.
