I may be wrong as i dont own one
I like both, but right now i prefer the rzr. There are thousands of miles of atv trails in MI a rzr is allowed to use, but full size rigs are not allowed on. Going fast through trails and over woop sections there is no comparison between a jeep and rzr. Like i said, i like both, but i'm on a rzr kick right now.

Those harnesses are a huge improvement, the stock belts are a joke. I went with the DFR padded 3" 4-points on mine, but added a 5th point anti-sub belt after seeing what happened to my girlfriend when she rolled the RZR at 60mph.

Oh, and for those of you who don't understand the side x side thing...go rent one for a day, you will understand. I'm on my second and have been debating on upgrading again (rzr xp), they are more fun than you could imagine. As far as capability, they will do anything a stock jeep will off road. Just like jeeps, once you start modifying, you can tailor them to your type/style of wheeling and make them much more capable.

That's exactly what I assume and exactly why I've made it a point NOT to drive one....If I did my savings account would be in (more) trouble. They're probably ridiculously fun but sure as hell aren't cheap. I debated about getting one rather than building the current Jeep project but the Jeep won, mostly because I can drive it on the street, take it on road trips, etc, but at the same time the side by side would probably be more fun for romping in yards, woods, trails, bonfires, and more useful for yard work and snow plowing. Hopefully my money tree finally sprouts this year and I can just have both!

I like the design on the bumper. A little more understated than the aftermarket ones I've seen. Are you planning a winch mount in the future?

My take on the side by side craze (not that anyone cares) is that it's like the utility quad craze, these can serve multiple purposes and do all of them well. Plus they are a riot to drive! And no, unfortunately, I don't own one.

I went with a Rhino as a more utilitarian vehicle. I haven't had it in the trails yet but it plows snow awesome. I can see why Hancho likes his but this thread still belongs in the go-kart forums.
