i always liked the looks of a GNCC utility quad

they dont have racks or anything. you can buy a new bumper or hanguards, etc.

performance wise, hmf makes a utility exhaust system.

if u have the tools i can show u a bunch of stuff u can do at home... u can drill out a hockey puck and put it under ur shock and it will give u an inch of lift and prevent the front from sagging... u can build and underbody kit out if sheet metal some zip ties and a rivet gun mine came out pretty good overlapped the metal looks badarse...if u go for k&n ur gunna need a pre-filter i run that and it gives a good power gain... if u want to improve the sound on ur atv u can cut the tip off and their is a metal plate inside the exhaust that constricts the sound... drill holes inside of it and then weld a 2inch pipe at the end of it of the pipe this gives it a deep throuty sound.. i did all of these if u want the pictures except the exhaust gunna be doing that hopefully soon

      Hello everybody, I need some advice on buying my next utility ATV 4x4. Ive narrowed it down to Arctic Cat, Yamaha, Polaris, or Can Am. Im wanting something with a 500-850 motor. I def do not want a 1000. They just seem too big and heavy. I am 6ft-5in tall and medium build. I currently drive a 1998 Yamaha Big Bear 4x2 350 and its simply too small for my body size. I also own a 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500 4x4 which fits me quite nice and has a comfortable large seat. My wife loves driving the Popo since its automatic, so I get stuck driving the Yamaha if she tags along for ride since its semi auto shift. Id like to trade up the Big Bear for a larger, reliable, capable, trail and mud machine. I must have 4 wheel drive and IRS. I like the reliability of Yamaha, but I must admit my Popo rides quite smooth. I just really dislike the Polaris CVT belt noise and the lag time it requires to move atv after u punch the throttle. I havent tested the new 2013 or 2013 popo sportsman to compare. Im not into extreme mudding, but my friends and I do snorkel our quads and drive thru deep water on occasion. So I would like an ATV that is water friendly, if there is such a thing. LOL! Ive pondered a can am xmr 650 but am worried the can am might be expensive to maintain or repair. I really like the look of the AC Mud Pro, but I have no problem modifying a base model to suit my needs. Whatever bike I buy MUST be large in frame size. I dont need gobs of power but I prefer a larger frame size. My Big bear and my buddys Honda Rancher are just too small. My butt actually hits the rear rack when I ride if I sit bk too far. Please share your thoughts, good or bad. I am not brand loyal, I just want a well made, larger frame bike for trails and some mud.

      I grew up riding motorcycles and three-wheelers. After 20 years away, I have now moved to the Rocky Mountains and have some amazing country to explore in my backyard. Add a snowplow onto a utility four wheeler (do they call them that?) and I have a great opportunity and excuse to buy a toy that I have wanted for years.
      Not to mention that my 5 year-old would lose his mind if Dad bought one of these and we started exploring the backroads/4wd roads that are all over my area.
      That said, I do not want to spend more than $5000+ for this and, so long as it can do some basic snow removal and run reliably, dont mind getting an older model.
      I have four questions:
      1) I feel comfortable maintaining this, but would like an expert to look it over to find any big issues before I buy it. Should I take it to a dealer to have it checked out? This is complicated by my next question . . .
      2) Any recommendations on how to bring it home? I do not yet have a truck, trailer or anything to get whatever I buy home. I expect that I will have to borrow/rent a truck, but once it is at my house I can just ride from my house to all of the places I want to go.
      3) After pulling out what is available on Craigslist, I think I may want to limit who I talk to to just those that already have a snowplow. This is a must have, so is there anything I should look for?
      4) Made it this far? If so, is there anything in the below list that I should definitely check out? I pulled this list from just the past two days of posts on Craigslist and am getting a bit overwhelmed as I have not shopped for one of these, well, ever.
      2003 Yamaha Grizzly 660 4x4 w/ Warn Winch & New Tires
      2002 Honda TRX 350 LOW HOURS
      2008 Polaris 500 Deluxe EFI ATV
      ******2003 Kawaski Prairie 650 V TWIN*****
      1998 honda atv 300 fourtrax
      (has snowplow!)
      2006 Yamaha Kodiak 450 ATV
      2007 Yamaha Grizzy 700 ATV
      2003 polaris 500 sportsman with snow plow
      (2) 2013 Polaris Sportsman 500 Tourings
      2003 Kawasaki Prairie 650 4X4 Utility ATV with Cargo Racks, 1075 miles
      And that is just for the past two days . . . so many to choose from, so Im a bit overwhelmed!!!
