Thanks for that, it's called a disclaimer and all companies do it these days and T.J USA is no different. Good on them for putting this on there web site. Don't give all the credit to Team Joyner, Polaris have Disclaimer warning stickers on their machines and printed in their manuals just like Joyner do. So good on you too Polaris for that, but I wonder after the recent deaths and injuries with their tipsy RZR they are going to add " Serious injury or death can result from turning or climbing a hill with a RZR" .

Cheers Mike

brostar, when i was a kid, about 20 years old i had a 56 ford pickup that i had done alot of work on. It had a 327 with a 4 speed muncie tranny. all the body work had just got done and i was going to get it painted in the next couple months. Any way i was down at salton sea where they can have flash flloods. this was back in i think 1974. Anyway i was down at the dessert and driving through this dip that had about 6" of water in it and it is about a 100 yards long. I get about half way through it and look to my left and see a wall of water about 3' high. it hits the door and caves it in, shoves the pickup of the road and into a hole full of water. The pickup flips and i am standing inside of the cab with my feet on the roof waiting for the truck to fill up with water so i can get out. I end up going out the passanger side window as the truck starts tumbling. After i got out i was in the water a good 1/3 of a mile befor i got to the side of the river. The only thing i had on was my under wear, everything else had been riped off me. I was cut up pretty bad. It was raining so hard you could hardley see and my skin was burning so i wraped myself under a bush till it stoped raining. After about 3 hrs somebody found me and took me to my parents camp. The next day we went back and found the pickup. it was upside down, totaly buried in the river bed. The tires were the onlything showing and you could only see about 4"of them. the truck was completely pulverized from rolling rocks hiting the cab and it was full of sand. I was very lucky. So what i am trying to say is be careful when you are around water and it is raining. I never expected a wall of water to come down that river bed and it was not very deep when i started into it. It was like a damn broke. That same rain storm washed out interstate 8 and the rail road tracks and alot of other bridges

Your right Mike, I believe it is a disclaimer here. Not to protect the rider like you are saying.

I think they are saying there machines were not intended for this use.

This is definitely true with the water level.

Don't you agree?
