    Looking for something to knock around the mountain trails. I know there is a lot of new junk out there. What's everyone running?

    I need seating for 2, would like some storage, needs to have decent suspension for nasty trails. Fit in back of F350. Not worried about speed.

    A lot of options

    Whats the budget

    New or used

    Some trails have a narrow entrance - some mfg.s make the SxS 52'' to fit thru the 'gate' (poles)

    There are the performance category and the utility - preference?

    We have a RzR900 Fun on trails. Can go most places in Glamis but lacks power for the sand and the big hills and bowls.

    I don't know a lot about them but will say that if you're going to use it for hunting....many of them are LOUD. Like 4 stroke dirt bike loud at WOT and much louder than a pickup at idle. Just something to consider....not sure if certain makes are more quiet than others.

    I had the Rhino 700 sport. Loved it. Sat 2, dump bed on the back, long travel and fun as hell. I miss it.

    I'd bet you could find a bitchin older Yamaha rhino out there with everything you'd need for a fraction of what a new RZR goes for. The older (pre-08) ran the Raptor 660 motor which was super reliable as long as you did the regular oil and filter changes. A ton of guys down here put a lot of money into the motor and suspension and then had to blow them out when the market crashed.

    I'd try to find one with upgraded suspension, those old Rhinos had a high COG and rolled if the wind blew too hard. Motors are good and will take you just about anywhere you'd want to go. Back in our desert days the moms drove the rhinos and we loaded the beds with fuel and coolers. The new ones don't seem to have much storage space
