Default Hard rear cargo boxes, love them? hate them? best brands?

I'm looking at Kimpex because I have a contact..but am open to other brands because the Kimpex seem so massive...42"! do like the 4.7L fuel option...would pay-up for a sleeker better looking box...any out there?

dblshock, Kimpex seats are nice for 2up riding, but ya they are big , tree rubbin in tight trails.If you only want for storage they have slimmer designed ones.

I put my block & tackle winch in the center compartment but the Maddogg bag couldn't hold the weight with the Rincon force and the lashing and seams blew-out..Stearns is going to replace the bag, I can support the winch weight shifting to the rear with a rubber tether around the back of the bag but maybe it's time to just try a trunk.

I have a Kimpex on my Grizzly (love it) and the Polaris lock-n-ride one on my Sportsman, but it's waaaay too small. I'm going to replace it with that newer Kimpex with the bars across the top.

What kind of deals can you get in Kimpex, dblshock?

I really like my Kimpex box. It has alot of storage(I added the soft interior bags) and is built well. We go through alot of tight bush trails and have used it to rub against trees in order to get through, so it has actully been an asset instead of a hinderance in that situation. It protects the bike from alot of stuff(I`ve rolled it three times) and keeps mud and snow off of riders as well. I`ve had it on the bike since 2004 and the only issue I had was with the pushbutton locks,so I changed them out to a butterfly type fastener and changed the brakelight out for a cooler looking one. I stays dry and cleans up nice. I would recommend one. I also have the heated grips for the passenger. It isn`t wider than the bike, so I don`t see where that would be an issue anyways.
