I think it will do fine. Watch the Moonrocks toward the end...I did a little there....but I had no skid plates yet...so I went gently.


No tires and wheels yet...GRRRR...Rims are still backordered. They said May 14 a couple weeks ago.

So you didn't go for the smooth ride luxury soft suspension option, eh?

One thing I enjoy is soaking up bumps with my legs on the quad - how does being strapped in compare?

The bottom already looks like this. I put on 1/2" skid, 1/2" rock slider and a-arm guards.

You can go so much faster over bumps...than a Quad. I didn't have my tires aired correctly...I have over 15lbs in that video. You'd have no fillings in a quad like that....the shocks help a lot.

I'll have to get a ride from you to see what it's like - I think a few more years on the quads and then we'll be looking at SxS.

The saying was...with age, comes a cage....

It's just different. This is so freaking fast.....it ain't no grandpa SxS. The quad and this...are just different. I don't think it replaces the quad...unless you really don't have the strength or stamina to ride a quad. My 16 year old, thought I was grandpa when I got it....then he drove it...and went wow, this thing is a blast.

I would never buy a Ranger...so slow.
