A while back I asked a question about you guys thoughts on a 4X4 utility vehicle. I have a bad back and can't steer quads. Got some nice responses and I told you I would get back. Got an e-mail from a nice fella I visit back and forth with occasionally on PM, asking me how I like what I got. I apologize. Meant to tell you folks and just slipped my mind. Nancy and I wound up with a Ranger 500 4X4 EFI. Electronic fuel injection, 30 hp, 41 mph, 1500 lb towing capacity, on demand 4X4, independent rear suspension, full underbody skid plate. We love it. I can easily get in the puppy. It frankly is like riding in a car. The independent suspension has allowed me to ride without a back brace. We have very difficult terrain. It hasn't missed a beat. I when in the mood can get in it and go anywhere. Check my floodgates, see if timber has blown down on a fence, check for poachers or just see the scenery. I will hunt out of it deer season. Anxious to see how it does in the snow. It wound up costing us about 7600 bucks. Didn't pay tax because it is considered a farm vehicle. My Ma passed this spring, and we got a little check from her estate to swing it. The only complaint I have is it is rattly. They use so much plastic anymore it is difficult to stop vibration noise. Thanks fellas. John.
