Those things are badass. My buddy has one that's chipped with full exhaust system and intake.. 700cc FI motor. It hauls *** everywhere. They widened theirs out too with wheel spacers for stability. We mod that thing when we go camping places.

We got one too, but it's the 660. It's the sport model, with the reservoir shocks.
IT TAKES A SERIOUS BEATING.
Weve driven the **** out of it, drifted around corners, done donuts, hit the rocks, hit the whoops, and we've never come close to rolling it.
You have to know what the vehicle can and cant do, and what speeds it can do these things.
Ours also has spacers, and wider wheels. It really helps for stability.

And people wonder why insurance is so high...........LOL

There's a vid on YouTube with two young kids bombing down a dirt trail with a Rhino. The young inexperienced driver hits a bump, can't take control of the vehicle, looses control, and rolls it. Unfortunately both kids are not hurt and walk away. They both should have broken an arm and leg as a lesson. If their parents showed them how to properly operate the vehicle, I'm sure they'd be having fun WITHOUT causing harm to the vehicle.

i used to drive these things out of the semi when they got delivered to the yamaha dealership i was working for.. hook up the battery drive em to the back of yard park and em. then between jobs and i had nothing else to do i got to bolt the roll bars and stuff on...

one of the rhino's at the shop i was working for was decked out and they wanted to use it for plowing snow.. it had an aftermarket front bumper on it, so i had to figure out how to bolt up a big 60" plow, and a winch on it. then we had a set of meats laying around so i threw those on... wish i had pictures of it, it was nice...

also added some taillight covers to it.. i'd love to get a 700 FI and put a set of meats on it.. its amazing how much stuff you can do to these things..
