I am actually going to be using it as a pit vehicle, To tow my roadster back after a run. Also mostly silver lake dunes and a little around the house.

Polaris of you want good suspension and power. The rhino is more of a farm rig. Stil very well proven but just not as much get up and go. The Polaris are more driven to please in the race factor and soaking up the bumps.

I know it is not on the list, But we just picked up a Teryx. It is absolutely awesome, and every bit of what I expected. I know there are people who hate/dislike it for their own reasons, but if I was going to go out and get another utv, I would probably get another one of these. It is hands down an awesome machine. Take a look at them, they might suit the bill.

I am looking at a few rangers this week. I had good luck with my sportsman and scrambler never had 1 problem with either quad. Hopefully I have the same luck with a ranger.

Haha. Its got great power all around. Good top end, and I have yet to get it stuck in over a foot of sticky mud. 4wd works flawlessly, as does the locker. Suspension is pretty good for a stockie. Oh, and I pulled my chriscraft 26' boat out of the garage with the tralier tires all locked up ;)
