Build or buy the right RZR S for Mudding ??

I am going to purchase a new RZR of some sort . I ride mostly trail ,lots of mud and the odd fast paced fire road. Width can be an issue some times ,however ground clearance concerns me more as does reliability and durability.

I am considering two options:
#1 Buy a 011 eps non s and add the SATV + 4 a arm kit and some decent shocks with the tougher Rhino axles and a lift . Either way i plan to run 30 inch tires with this set up i could be around 57 inches wide (nice) with lots of clearance and a decent ride . Also i think alot more durable set up. As a bonus i also have power steering and do not need off set rims which are hard on the whole hub/front end ,etc

#2 Buy a RZR s and add a lift and rhino axles , I would have to find 14 inch rims with stock offset as i do not wish to go any wider (850 XP ? ) This would put me at around 60 " wide , without power steering . So i know the EPS rzr would be more nimble and a little narrower.

Doing a rough guesstimate the price works out about the same more or less.
Has any one on here used the PLUS 4 kit with the boxed a arms (not the plus 5 rzr s kit ) if so what are your thoughts on it .

Any input would certainly help......

Era....I would think option 1 would cost more than option 2 if you could get a good deal on an S. I got an '11 OTD for $13,200.

Option 2 with the lift might pull you in to 58". Lift up, brings width in.

Option #1 is what you should take,,,because you can set it up the way you like and also have a better Long travel than the O.M.E.....

The dealer I talked to who had an EPS would not deal. He wanted full boat +. I gave him two chances then walked. I think he wanted to keep it for an upcoming fair. I was surprised he turned down a solid offer. His loss.

I am kinda leanin this way .I like having something a little different and i like to build as well.
Also i think it will be a great mudder ; alittle higher,narrower and a little tougher with EPS.....

You can also take the power steering into consideration? I'm injured, I can drive with one hand, get stuck in the mud and have that wheel slammimg left and right in no time w/ no effort...If you want to add that to the "s" add $900 to your cost!

I just bought a 2011 EPS and am building it my way, long travel and so on. The EPS makes a huge difference.
Yeah, I was REALLY nervous as I had to sell all my atv's & snow machines because I couldnt ride them anymore, I was in the RZR with stock wheels and had trouble steering (My ribs were cut out after getting blown off), then I upgraded tires to the Executioners and it was almost impossibe to steer unless moving..then I ordered/installed EPS and it was night and day! It makes a huge differance. If I wasnt injured I dont think I would want to try it, cause It would make me want it and have to spend an extra $900.. Fair warning to all...

i purchased the 2011 with eps and put the super atv rzr to rzrs s conversion with lift brackets and complete axles, i am run 31 laws with 19" of ground clearance at lowest point on bike with only 35% on axles at full drop,i am 58" wide, the kit rides like a dream, i was running the 3" extreme with spring spacers and it rode very stiff, and thats what i was looking for to more ground clearance and better ride, its the best thing i could of done.

I am running stock shocks and i told them to send me the upper lift brackets from there 6 to 8" lift kit, not sure if thats what they sent me for sure they said yes but i add an 1 1/2" more bracket by welding more plate and drilling 1 1/2" lower hole and thats how i stand now. trying to post pic but not good at that, do you know how so i can post it for you.

How about $13,400 and out the door for a 2011 OM with EPS ? I had the 14" wheels and bighorns put on it along with fender flares also. It was the only OM they had in at the time. Build date July 10


later
