when in 4 wheel or differential lock, does the steering become difficult, as it does with my trx500, or is it manageable? I am experiencing elbow problems and one of the reasons for trading up is to make riding more comfortable. Most of my use is for hunting, usually slow speed over rocky terrain and the jarring and manual stress is taking its toll. Additionally, is there any rumor of electronic steering being added in the future. And thanks for the warm welcome to the forum.:D

I notice very little difference from 2wd to 4wd. I doubt I could tell you which one I was in for steering. Even in snow and mud if I was blindfolded.

When you go to 4wd diff lock. Its a great deal harder to steer. Maybe 3-4 times the effort in snow.

Compared to other SxS's the Pioneer has the easiest steering of any non PS unit I have driven.

I haven't heard any rumors of factory PS. I don't doubt there being an aftermarket version, as I have already seen someone retro fit a unit on another forum. If they can do it, I'm sure a company can.

There is no difference to speak of in 2wd and 4wd. However, it is a PITA to steer in 4wdDiffLock. Unless you have the differential locked, it steers just fine.
