    I've got a 2003 Grizzly and love it. There are others out there and I did my research. I came to the conclusion that the Grizzly was the best.

    Mine is very fast and hasnt been stuck yet, and I try too. The selectable 4wd and lockable front diff is sweet. Its very comfortable to ride and very stable.

    I hope this helps.

    What was your total walk out price? I really think that is the best out there right now. It has mare options than anyother.

    I walked out with it for 6500. I got a winch and an extended warranty to go with it for that price. Ive seen some go for lower on ebay and have found some good deals on them on the net.

    What are you wanting the 4x4 for? Have you ever thought about a Max 6x6? They will not only go through more stuff then any 4x4, they float in water also. Depending on what you would want, option wise, they will cost about the same or little more then a new 4x4. If interested, go to www.maxatv.com

    Those are ok. Yes they float, but I have a boat for that. And my grizzly can tow it just fine anywhere. Plus those Max things are pretty slow.

    My grizzly will run 65-70mph top end and haul ass getting there. I love my ATV and wouldnt trade it anytime soon.

    You have a point John, the grizzly is faster at 65-70 mph. I bet you never go that fast when on trails though. The Max IV will run 35 mph and the Max II will run 42 mph with the big engines in them. That is why I asked, why he wanted one. If it is speed, then get a sport quad, if it is for a workhorse, then the both can do the job. If he wants something for hunting and fishing, then the Max is better. I just wanted him to think about the 6x6's.

    A Grizzly goes 70? I wouldn't count on it. A Yamaha Banshee goes just over 70, and thats a high performance twin cylinder two stroke. Not saying a Grizzly is not good, because I would have one if I could afford it, but it sure dosn't it 70.

    Not trying to start anything here, but the speedo on my Grizzly has gotten up to 68. Yes I was going downhill but it still went that fast. On flat ground 63-65 is not uncommon.

    Is this speedo accurate? Maybe. I think its close. These are just my observations. A 660 Raptor runs about 80 or so. Its not hard for me to think that a 4wd ATV with the same motor couldnt go 65-70.

    My .02,

    Dang, dude...you've got some ba!!s to go that fast on a 4x4 quad. NOT saying it shouldn't be done, but I've gotten an '02 350 Rancher ES up to 40 and that felt FAST flying down a dirt road with woods on each side. Maybe it was the thought of a deer jumping out in front of me at that speed that scared the crap out of me. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Sure it's the same motor, but a Raptor dosn't weigh anywhere near what a Grizz weighs. That's like comparing a 350 in a Boss Hoss motorcycle and a 350 in a K5. They are the same motor so they should be equally fast right? /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
