New to 700xx and sport ATVs and want to accessorize

I like to ride fields, gravel roads, and logging roads through the woods, don't expect to jump very often and won't go very high, don't plan on hitting big rocks or stumps. Once in a while the rides may be several hours and 60 miles long, and hopefully I can find gas somewhere. I enjoy the exhileration of acceleration, but don't plan to go over 60 mph top speed as I have 3 kids that would miss their father - until they become teenagers and forget they have parents.

I have a few questions for those of you in the know. I don't expect a greater need for performance in the near future, though I do plan to install a 13T sprocket, and reliability is most important. I have searched the prior posts and see many opinions on pro armor, DG, PRM, etc., some pro some con. Based on my riding style and environment, I would like your opinion whether I need the following items and the best bang for the buck accessories:

1. Front Bumper to protect from brush and possibly debris thrown up by quads in front of me. I don't want the bumper to obscure the headlights.

2. Rear Bumper (grab bar) that is wider than stock to avoid accidentally backing into a tree in the woods and banging up the rear end of the machine. Should I find a rear bumper/rack that I can use to carry extra gas, food, or water to drink?

3. Nerf bars - I'd like to keep the stock heel guards if possible. Thinking of this possibility:

4. Hand guards to protect from tree branches and brush
5. Skid plate.

6. A arm protectors

What brands and where should I look to buy these items. Are there some I probably don't need or am I missing something I should have?

Thanks,

Will

PRM has great stuff

I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.
