Nice Rhino Dago! How much?

Thanks, 13,100 otd. With larger rims and tires, wheel spacers front and rear, OMF rock guards up front and a camo canvass top. Bought it from Royer Cycle and Marine in Bakersfield.

We just came back from Niland CA for the dove opener. One friend had a Ranger. Another had a Rhino. We did alot of 4x4 and just off road driving. I noticed the Ranger was alot smoother. The Rhino tended to get "squirly" alot in the back wheeles.Long story short, my friend flipped his Rhino at 50 mph. We rolled 2.5 times and ended up upside down. I was the passenger and the seat broke completely out of the vehicle. Poorly made seat construction. My friend had just installed shoulder harnesses ( which saved my life I'm sure). I recommend installing them as well as the doors you can install on the Rhino if you get one. I would suggest the Ranger. It was alot more stable and smooth.Attached File  1.jpg   25.29KB   6 downloads

I'm in the same boat as far as trying to decide which to buy. The information you have all provided helps me out as well. :roflmao3[1]:

But, how comfortable is it when it's flipping??? :signs1180lq: Seriously, glad that you're OK. Your friend should think about driving slower with that suicide-mobile.

Did you see how the Rhino is being looked at for the safety issues when rolling? Might be something to check into..Heck dang near every night I see this commercial about Rhhino roll over accidents and death please call this number etc... Also if you request doors they supposedly are for free... Due to the serious injuries people have because nothing holds them in the cab and when it rolls you tend to squish body parts ...I can see where that would hurt a bit..

The doors definitly kept my legs attached to my body. The "oh-sh*t-bars" worked great too. Tore ligaments in my left wrist holding on during the rolls but thats better than asking " dude, where's my ARM"

" dude, where's my ARM"

I hate when that happens as it usually leaves a BIG mark. :signs1242cn:

Picked up the new Rhino about three weeks ago. Been out playing with it for about two weeks. This thing will go places my jeep wont go. Gun racks and winch to come soon. Pix is just after I picked it up.Posted Image

Bumping this back up. I really like the looks of that Rhino!!Must be this time of year, cause I am back to wanting one really bad. lolIf I get one, I have settled on an New 08 700 efi. Still trying to work on permission from the boss. ;)
