Made up my mind and traded my 800 Ranger on the camo 4 seater. Yeah, I know, I've got a great wife! Got the 4000 warn winch and the half wind deflector, now I need to figure out where and how to mount a rifle scabbard or boot that will be under my future roof out of the elements. The storage pouch system that hangs overhead would be perfect for me to slide a beater rifle into if it had a scabbard built into the back side of it. The brilliant minds on this site helped to sway me to the honda, now I need to know what those minds have come up with for rifle storage!

Come on Grader, you only half told the story. Did you get Red " because its faster" or Olive " green it flies farther" maybe camo " because its harder to find after you climb out of your tree stand". Post a pic or two when ya get a chance. Inquiring minds want to know.

Not a teck guy, hope the pictures come through. Duwop, I chose camo so the wife won't see me riding out of the yard and ignoring the "honey do" list! Sd 1976, I got rid of the Ranger because it was starting to get a bit loose and ratty after only 1800 miles. The wheel bearings on the back were already on their way out, along with the a- arm bushings.:mad: I didn't load it anywhere near the advertised capacity, and generally babied it. I don't want to spend time on repairs either. Hopefully, this new buggy will be as tough and reliable as the trikes and quads I've had over the years!

Other than being under built in some areas, I liked the ranger, lots of snap in the 800 engine, plush ride, a bit wider body to keep the mud on the bottom side a bit better than the honda and a little easier to attach toolboxes etc. with the stake pockets along the top of the box. The honda rides a bit stiffer and lacks a decent glove box and cab storage, but makes up for it with heavier axles, meatier a- arm bushings, heavier cv boots, goes into 4wd and stays when you ask it to unlike polaris's sprague clutch system. I never had belt issues with the ranger, been running snowmobiles forever so I guess I'm used to it. I'm usually riding alone a helluva long hike from the house and I think the pioneer is a better bet to get me home on time.
