Looking for ane UTV

Recommended Posts

We have an old Mule about 8-9 years old and we are looking to get something new, but have not sure about the best to buy.

We would probably like a two row (4-6 seater) better than a two seater.

Speed is not an issue... power is more important, but still not the main focus. We mostly just cruise around... general light duty work with the occasional heavy duty requirement.

We definitely want 4WD and a good smooth ride. Comfort is probably the most important of everything. Our 19 year old daughter would say speed is the most important thing, but we ain't buying it for her.

I checked out the Joyner UTV's, but they all appear to be manual transmissions with a clutch, which won't work, no negotiating. The wife and daughter don't do the manual trans thingy... it needs to have forward and reverse, no having to change gears.

Our friends just picked up one of the Ranger 6 seaters and are really praising its ride comfort. They purchased an 09 model for about 12,400 with a windshield and top. The one thing that they have complained about with it is the dust seems to suck right back into the seating area really bad. Not sure if this is merely a windshield thing or the design.

Anyway... would like suggestions and welcome dealers to contact me. I have no problem buying out of state to save a few bucks if the unit can be shipped reasonably and still save some money.

      Hello.  I have 2006 kawasaki mule 3010 trans 4x4 that has the drivers side wheel turning inwards while the passenger side is straight.  What would cause this to happen and what would you suggest to repair.  Thanks.  Adjusted the tie rods, but wont fix this.

      It's been leaking VERY slowly over the past couple years, just  had to add a minute amount of brake fluid every few months. Now i have to i add about 3/4 of a cup every 5 days.
      i took the rear tire off, where it is leaking from, cleaned up the outside of the drum and it looks like the fluid is leaking from where the   "outer" drum meats the inner drum, #41038. guessing its the brake cylinder inside..... any other thoughts. I made sure the brake line is tight too.

      I had been wanting to install power steering on my T4 for years so I went to the salvage yard last weekend and bought a complete column (minus airbag) out of a 2009 Nissan Versa for $125 with the ECU.
      It was a fairly simple install. The long shaft that fits to the Joyner steering rack actually fit perfectly into the Nissan column. Had to weld up a U joint on the Nissan column to make it a straight shaft and fab up one simple bracket. Connect power and ground plus a switched 12v and now I can steer with one hand!

      Dipstick shows pale color, dont think its water, smells like fuel, oil changed one week ago, level is very high.
      First I thought it was water condensed into the oil...but someone pointed out the smell, and it doesn't look white-milky. And a half qt or so in one week?
      So is it possible to get fuel leaking into the oil?
