More about UTVs/side by sides

You guys that have'em...how agile are they? I'm not expecting dirt bike capability, but do they have the grunt and traction similar to say, a quad? I have access to extensive woods trails in my area, but I keep thinking these things must get stuck alot

My dad has a 06 rhino, bought it new. Its been great for him and its ridiculously capable, probably more capable than most utility quads. They're a little down on power compared to a quad(unless you get one like a razr 900/wildcat/commander 1000) but can go pretty much anywhere and haul more than a quad.
We've yet to get his rhino stuck, but it has 27" itp mudlite xt tires and a winch. Runs circles around our friends quads and trucks out in the mud, and climbs up pretty much whatever you point it at with them being locked front and back

I have a 2012 Rzr-s. 60" wide. I have ridden dirtbikes and quads all my life, after having a sxs I wouldnt go back to a quad. I still ride my bike once and a while but the sxs is so much easier and comfy to drive. I have gotten it stuck once, my tacoma would have been stuck just as easy. Id say find someone that has one and take it for a spin. You will love it. The rzr-s is quite the machine. The xp900 is insane.

I highly recommend the RZR never been stuck and since we have had it my raptor 700 hasnt moved it is bigger than most so you problem would be width or length if your riding in a wooded area. just trails or dirt roads there isnt anything that can keep up with it. I would get the articcrap if I was just riding dunes and the canned ham if I was just hunting but i think the RZR gives you the best overall.

I have a question, why spend over 10 grand for one of these when you could buy a wrangler, cherokee, or even a nice first gen taco and beat the hell out of it ?

If you have to ask a question like that, you clearly havent ridden in a SxS before. Totally different animal.
That is all.

Because the pilot costs too much ? Lol, I was just curious, I would figure the taco or jeep would last longer too, just a curious question.

This is my Rhino. This is what I beat up on instead of my truck. Very capable wheeler.
I guaranty you will not be able to get an old Jeep to handle and perform like my Rhino for the same price.
This thing drives like a Trophy truck in the desert.More about UTVs/side by sides-imageuploadedbytapatalk1346178811.994493.jpgMore about UTVs/side by sides-imageuploadedbytapatalk1346178849.410210.jpgMore about UTVs/side by sides-imageuploadedbytapatalk1346178869.596298.jpgMore about UTVs/side by sides-imageuploadedbytapatalk1346178902.675603.jpg
