Go anywhere and go aware comfortably is a different store.

With that said a Taco with a long travel suspension kit and 20 psi tire is pretty comfortable. But still not as comfortable as 1100lb long travel UTV. It’s physics, 12-14” of travel to 6”.

I'd say Jeep, or some older 4x4 like a Samurai, older suburban, blazer, etc... You can get them cheap, drive them to the hunt, hunt out of them, and drive back. This thread is about vehicle for the money.

People say you can go anywhere in a UTV. Anywhere that's not a road that is. When it comes to cost there is no argument because you then need a trailer and a tow vehicle to move your UTV unless it never leaves where you hunt.

Nailed it on the UTV. They will stay on top when your heavy vehicles sink in the soft sand.

After NM this past Jan, I'm trailering UTV for now on. In 4 days I went from F250 to tacoma to can am, I could of almost feel a sleep in the can am. F250 equaled two kidney replacements, tacoma one kidney replacement, the can am was an literally an Oasis in the desert.

In stock form absolutely. With a shock swap you can better it. I have almost 12” on my mule pro. It's pretty plush, I've ran through some pretty bad washouts and rolled right through

Never heard anyone complain. Never get stuck. Never get flats. Never worry about going anywhere.

You are just no fun. 35” on your 250 and 45psi in front and 40 rear makes a huge road difference

I have had all Polaris machines but I am not one to condem the other brands because the great thing about a UTV is that a you can customize these things to do darn near anything you want to do. I will say stay with the major brands. If money is tight you can get one off the economy models and then add to it just like you used to be able to do with Jeeps, Cars, and trucks. I love mine I even like adding "STUFF" to it. Your only limitation is your imagination and wallet. Go on some of the forums and check them out, see how some of the owners are using theirs.
