You WILL inevitably hit your head on the bed latches EVERY single time you are working on your Rhino.

Damn those things hurt! I have permanent scars on my scalp from hitting those stupid things.

you will never have as much fun as your buddies have on there rzr's, can ams, or wildcats.

I beg to differ.

My room mate has a new XP900, and a good buddy(old forum member here) has a Can Am 1000.

While my Rhino may not keep up on straight aways, it does just as good in the trails(which is a huge part of my riding) and gets stuck less.

And the best part is I don't even half half the amount of $$$ in mine. I am also able to use mine for more utility purposes around my lake property than the guy with the XP...those things are great for sport riding, but useless for everything else.

Niterider. I think you may have missed my point.. I am completely speaking positively about the Rhino.. ! Violently Agree.. the Rihino is best suited overall uitlity vehicle. Meant ours gets stuck less.

I had quoted "blu du" and what he had said about not having as much fun as others with can am's, razrs and what not.

I completely agree with you...I have had to pull out basically every single model of side by side there is with the exception of Kubota and the Commander...I never see commanders or kubotas in the trails. With as heavy as those things are, I don't think I would even want to try to pull them out.

I have never had to be pulled out..have had to use my winch a few times though.

In reference to Blu Du's post..."Fun" is all relevant to what sort of person you are. If you are the type of person that has to have 20k stuck in something to have fun..more power to you. Some of the most fun I have ever had has been on the things I had nearly nothing in that wouldn't do more than 35 mph....matter of fact my CRF50 Honda dirtbike with the big bore kit and everything that I got for $450 was probably the best bang for the buck ever.

I thought we were talking about opening the bed of your rhino and sticking your head in there to look at the exhaust or something?...like i did when i bought my rhino this summer....and then while your head is in there....you look over> and God dam that hurts....and then you look over at the shocks and God Dam it...over and over....the top of my bald head is all gowed up from those bed latches.....i just thought of something?...the problem is the bed dont open far enuff to get your head in there and work...?...needs like quick reliese on the stuts so if you need to work in there you open...and hit the strut releases and then can open the bed all the way without having to unbolt the struts?....are the struts held on with a nut?...could we remove nut...and drill a small hole through bolt and put a pin in there like a reciver hitch but smaller?

That is EXACTLY what I was talking about....I have hit my head on those little J shaped hooks so many times...mainly when reinstalling my head pipe which I have had to do many times lately since the stock exhaust system keeps cracking.
