It can be a bit dusty with the windshield up but if you put a back window on it it really helps keep the dust down.
I bought some heavy clear vinyl, a grommet kit, and some zip ties at Walmart and made the one for the back and it works great. I only use the front windshield when it's cold so dust isn't really a problem for me.
TT, this thing has gone everywhere I have needed it to go. Mud, sand, hills, rocks etc. As for the sage brush, I have 75 acres of it and it will go through it fine but I try to keep away from the stick ups to avoid holes in the tires.
