Sweet, I've got one of those! Same color too. I've got 28" Titan M/T tires on ITP wheels and a clutch kit. If you have any real mud you'll need better tires. The 28's require you to cut the fenders for clearance on the ITP wheels, but if you use stock wheels you may be able to get by. (The ITP's have 2 inches more offset per wheel, making the quad 4 inches wider). I kept my stock wheels and tires for ice, and put studs in them for the winter. You may want to do a reverse limiter mod, since if you get into mud and try to back out you will be limited to 11 mph wheel speed in reverse, which makes it just about impossible to back out of a mud hole. Do a search at www.highlifter.com in the message board if you end up needing it. I've also got a Warn winch and a good rear pack with tools etc. Be careful in diff lock, don't use it unless you need it, or you could break a CV joint, I've broken one so far, it was covered under warranty, but only for 6 months unless you get the extended. Very sweet, nice riding quad, you'll love it. Depending on the type of riding you do, you might NEED a better than stock tool kit. I've flipped my quad about 3 or 4 times so far, we usually ride some pretty nasty trails. I've so far broken the CV joint on the front right and bent the same side tie-rod two or three times. Other than that, no problems. They go through some amazing stuff in 2wd with good tires, and that winch saved my butt when I broke the CV joint, wouldn't have made it home without it. P.S. your dirty pic looks like my clean pics!! I'll try to get some up. Happy Trails!!

Awesome, I prefer Honda, or Polaris, but cool none the less. I want to buy a Honda VLX (street cruiser) soon.

Sneaker, Sounds like you are hard them monsters.... I ride the river alot, when it is down, so the riding is not to rough, at times alot of mud to play in, then you hit a channel for a short ride to clean things up and go again. Also I use these things to hunt on, makes it great to haul out a deer, no more dragging... As for the tires and wheels, stock for now works good, I have to watch how wide I go, this thing will just fit thru the door to my storage building... I have a winch on my Big Bear, and am going to pull it off this week and install on my Grizzly... Then sell my Big Bear..

Congrats 1shott, That is a very good looking rig, please excuse my dumbass questions,(I've never ridden one or seen one in action) but is it 4wd? Also someone mentioned they use it for hunting, are they very loud? how would it compare to a pickup truck as far as noise is concerned? Is this one a two stroke or four stroke engine? Automatic or manual transmision? Thanks in advance. I looks like it would be a real HOOT to ride the back trails on. Take care, have fun......AZMAN

Hello, There are no dumba$$ questions, only the ones not asked... Yes it is 4 wheel drive, on demand, and a locking differental. I use it to get me to and from my hunting places, park it and then walk for bit to my final stand, ,akes it great for hauling deer out, and it is not to noisy.. It is a four stroke, with 5 valves. Automatic tranny.
