New to UTVs

Recommended Posts

I live in Las Vegas and am new to the board, I am looking for a four seat UTV to have to play around with in the desert. I haven't decided on anything I have friends that have various ones and each have their own opinions on which is the best etc so I am coming here to do research.

Hi, I'm new to UTV's also, I just purchased the 2020 Kubota  RTV XG-850 Sidekick Special Edition. I don't have a lot of experience but this is great little RTV.

For the desert, you'll want something fast, with independent suspension. Definitely not a utility vehicle. Slow and clunky, isn't what you want in the desert. And I'm not sure what they call the hot rod side×side. But it'd be the Polaris RZR type of thing.

Just do yourself a favor, and buy a name brand. Buy once cry once. Anything less, and your just buying trouble. And the desert is no place for a mechanical breakdown. 

Personally, I'd want a dune buggy, because what you're looking for is very pricey. And for similar money, a dune buggy would be much more versatile. With cheaper parts, better parts availability, as well as better, quicker resale. With less depreciation. Rollovers would be carefree, with no worries about breaking expensive plastic panels. Plenty of power to pull your buddy's broken machine back to the trailer lol.

      If I ever get my Mule Pro FXT ( stuck in stop sale purgatory), I am going to install a front windshield and top. I am leaning very heavily towards the full tip up windshield and Low Pro #3 top both by Fortress. I would love to hear the thoughts of those of you that own either or both. Thanks.

      Just bought my son and I a used 2018 Stampede....
      Drove it for 2 days everything seemed great.  But then today, we had it sitting outside got back in to take off and it would only do like 5 mph with the gas to the floor ... WTH?  Have it in high gear... I'm far from a mechanic but have no clue.  Literally 30 minutes before hand we were doing 40mph.    
      I did notice the engine light on but only had 2 bars ... he usually drives so I dont know if that is always on or not.  I looked at the owners manual and it stated that the bars and backlight flash when overheated ...
      I have no clue.  Need help... son is worried he did something to it...
      Please advise... thank u

      Hello, I just bought a 2004 Polaris ranger TM. It did not come with a lower seat. New seat is $500+. Looking on ebay for a used one and they don't list the Ranger TM model. Does anyone know what different Ranger years and models will fit the ranger TM? Is there a easy way to get a non TM ranger seat to work? Or do I shell out the $500 on a new seat? This is my first UTV. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you
