What to Buy???

Have a Polaris sportman and an Kawasaki mule 2wd. Love the Mule but need 4wd. Was looking at a Rino,any suggestions. Like the Mule because its a brute,I want something as strong if not stronger! Have drove a few Rangers but not a big fan I guess,just looking for some feedback. Thanks

My pick would be Ranger then Rino. I've driven both hunting. The Ranger felt more sturdy and stable with better power, I like the 4wd systems in both.. Its kind of a toss up compare the featuers of both and see what meets your needs the best, 4wd, suspension, tow rateings, accessoires and the like.. If I were to buy a Side by Side I'd get a Ranger or a Razor...

Thanks for the input bud! I guess I have never been a Polaris fan,they are so loud and clangy too mee compaired to the rest,but I will for sure check the new Ranger out,and check into the Razor,know nothing about it!

I think Can-Am will be building a Side-by-Side soon too. If thats the case; I'm sure it will be pretty badazz...

I would definitely look into a ranger a guy I hunt with has the limited edition 4 wheel version and it seems to go really well along with carrying plenty of gear along. They have a little more room in the cockpit area if you know what I mean.

I have a ranger as well as 2 of my buddies and my brother, They all go very well off road in the mud and snow, The towing capacity is for real as well as the hauling capacity. I regularly load mine to the top of the roll cage with firewood to get from the barn to the house. I have also towed a pickup with mine more than once. they ride very comfortable as well.
