Not mine, but the neighbor’s. He has this whipped out old Kawasaki Mule that constantly needs work. It’s junk. I’ve helped him with it many times. Last week it just flat died, with major mechanical problems, and then he went talking about spending more money on it than it’s worth. Just buy a new one for heaven’s sake, I told him, and give us all a break. So he then went shopping, with the intention to buy the cheap model. Like all of us though, he has an eye for shiny objects, and is getting a fancy one - an FX Pro or something like that (I’m not familiar with all the model names and numbers).

He tells me all about this at 8 pm last night as I’m standing in cow crap while jumping off his 1976 Chevy truck (work truck, not the primary truck) in the dark and in a distant pasture and corral, so he could move some calves to the sale barn. I kept my mouth shut about his whipped out old truck. One vehicle at a time...

I remembered that a lot of you guys were real fond of the fancier Mule models. I’ll get to see and ride in one real soon.

Did the suspensions get any better. I can run over a knat in my 2012 4010 Trans Mule and tell what sex it is.

I think a lot of has to do with retaining cargo bed weight capacity without bottoming out.
I've hauled 500+ pounds in the bed of that thing. Like it was nothing.

The bed on my pro mule dx is 54”x 54”, it’s big. Smooth ride due to rear independent suspension, not a straight axle.

Yes and you also have upgraded shock options to, as in you can hit a curb at 25 mph and not spill your tea


Bed size wise it will fit WT or Mule deer no problem in 6 seater mode. In 3 seater mode I can Carry two 150qt Grizzly cooler in it. It’s huge

I have carried a load in mine too. I had one guy in the front seat that weighed 300#'s, two in back at 350# and 250# and scrawny me at 185#. I'm sure the tires were about to pop.
