Im about 3K shy right now of Buying a Rhino.....I was thinking about a RZR but The Rhino has many more options for my Family...Ive never Rode in one though...Im just wondering just how comfortable they are...I have a Bad Lower Back:laugh: But from what I see Upgraded Seats are not a Problem if you want to spend the money....

My Dealer still has a 06 or 07 Carb Style in Stock....I can get a Killer Deal on it but I am thinking the EFI will be MUCHO BETTERO....

What are your feelings on it.....????

I personally like the carb, just because I don't know how to work on EFI. The new 08 models that have the EFI also have upgraded, adjustable shocks with res. The 06 and the 07 have adjustable shocks, just not piggy back. I love the ride in our Rhino. It handles great. As for your lower back, there are after market seat, but I recommend a small lumbar support. They sell foam rolls that you can strap to your seat. This will give you some lower back support. The Rhino also responds very well to mods. I put a FMF pipe on DrtyGrlKristin's rhino. That alone made a huge difference. The stock pipe is very restrictive. Next I will put a high flo air filter, probably K and N. Black Rhino Performance has all kinds of mods. Were also gonna get a super chip for it. This increases top speed to about 55-60 mph. It gives it better throttle response. Our Rhino has a very plush and comfy ride, the shocks are adjustable, wth a little time you can dial it in perfect for you. I highly recommend a Rhino as a family toy. Very easy to drive. If you can drive a golf cart, you can drive a Rhino.

Thanks for that Run Down!!!! I dont know why but I never did put you Two Together until now....!!!!! Now I can Really Talk Some SMACK!!!!

Anyway,,,,,I hear you on the Carb Thing...Everything I own has a Carb and I can Work on them...My Dealer told me one of the Biggest Differences was that the Carb was a little bit harder to start....Have you found this to be a Problem????

MY BIGGEST PROBLEM

After Looking at everything I can get for them on the Internet.....Its possible that this can lead to a Divorce and me in Debt about 22K...LMAO!!!!

I hear ya, She doesn't let me look at the websites that sell mods anymore! LOL Never in warm weather. It fires right up. When it is cold outside, I pump the gas pedal about 10 times, then turn the key. It will fire right up. Don't pump the gas while turning the key, do it before. I use this same method on my quad in cold weather.

As far as me and DrtyGrl, we are engaged. We're getting married on Sept. 20 2008. They wedding will be in Estes Park, Co at the hotel from the "Shining". It is called the Stanley Hotel.

You found an 07 for 8500? That's good, ours was about 12000 in 06. Make sure you get the one with the digital dash display. Has a speedo and a clock, plus will tell you milage for trip A or B. Including total miles on vehicle. Hours of running time. Lots of helpful stuff.

Re: bad lower back...

I have 2 herniated and 2 bulging and I find a racing kidney belt helps me a lot.....

I'm going to try my actual lumbar brace in the near future and see how that goes...

I was just thinking, is that 8500 for the 450 or the 660? I highly recommend the bigger motor. Huge difference in power and performance.

AH yes, the Kawasaki Rhino! J/K But it does look alot like the rhino. The Teryx should be killer with the 750 twin.

MWKE, this is a pic of DrtyGrl and I.

Digital dash is pretty nice option , not to hard to install either.A better CDI is one heck of an improvement to.

That is going to be our next purchase. Black Rhino has one for about 230, it adds about 10-12mph and of course better response.

I know what you mean. If I want to put my Rhino and quad on the same trailel, I need at least 14'. A 5x10 is perfect size for the Rhino.

Looks like fun! You can take the whole posse along!

We bought it for the ranch, but it quickly became our favorite ride. Had to go from a 21' to 28' toy hauler to get it and four wheelers to Mud Nationals and to atv/utv parks. It is governed to 25mph but is a blast when riding, drinking beer, and watching everyone act a fool....

Wife usually goes with me, but when she doesnt, it takes about 5 minutes and they are packed in.
