only one i've driven on the dunes was dougs 2016 rzr1000. fabr says the yamaha xyz are good so def one to look at. based on specs , that new wildcat seems to be the closest thing to an actual rail imo. its not a manual though but built well.  the resale used on n/a seems to be complete crap though. i see many ads with $10 to $20k in aftermarket parts and still cant get $14k out of a 2014 to 2016 model.

Great job on the shroud!! ABS is a wonderful plastic to fab with for sure.

To help out the baby radiator, I made some spacers to step the fan away from the core and built a shroud out of 1/8 abs. Now I get full air flow over the entire core, and the fan is not acting like 36 grit grinding disk on the aluminum when tiny Platte River gravel finds its way up there lol! These two simple mods did wonders. Just returned from a trail run up Kennaday Peak in Medicine Bow, WY and temps stayed "on the stat" no matter what I was climbing.

I have another 100 hours on the Turbo Brute, and couldn't be happier with how it performs. These are hands down a very well built 4-wheeler. One issue that can pop up though is a somewhat weak cooling system capacity. After you run a heavier tires/rims, gear bag, extra fuel and tools, food and beer, and then start climbing slow trails at high altitudes the engine temps start to climb. This can be remedied by adding an oil cooler, which many wheelers have factory.. Guess Kawi decided against it lol. But also, the cooling fan and shroud (or lack there of) needs redesigned to get full air flow over the core. More on this in a bit.
To get oil the cooler I used a Derale oil filter adapter with feed and return lines with a built in relief valve in case a cooler plugs up for some stupid reason. Got this from eTrailer.com

Cooler is a 12 pass Derale as well with 8AN fittings and Aeromotive push-lock hose to handle the psi. Fit really good in front of the radiator with a couple aluminum brackets.

My boy just bought our 4th YXZ. It all depends on what a person wants in a sxs. The 4th one has the sport shift. I'll report back on my take on that after a first drive in it.

Maybe this is phenq already linked here.
You guys seen this?
$14000  110 HP and 4wd with lotsa travel for a unit like it. 16 front 18 rear I think it has.

This one looks better than Yamaha. And the price is also reasonable.
