@JTW,
I really do think if you bought a LE you wouldn't break near as many axles.

I wish the issue was just me... but I don’t think so.

Hurry up boys tell him about all the places you went at Tackett Creek and the I4wd just couldn't make it.....How many times did the LE winch.....Then tell tell how many axles were broken in the group and how many of those were on an LE.......



Places I4wd couldn't make it = 0
times LE had to winch = 0
Axles broken on LE = 0

I know some of you really didn't want it to go so well. Sorry bout your luck.

Go ahead and tell them how easily and slowly I was able to crawl and not beat the hell out of my machine. Sure you made it but it sounded terrible at WOT!! At least I didn’t bend a tie rod.

Oh, yeah...I climbed a place at V rock that you did not. On the lower side you went around the right which look easier than the much steeper left side that I went up.

@Hondasxs where is the rock video? I know it wasnt the toughest climb. But it may show if all wheels were turning while climbing.

Having both, I can say I think I like the I4wd drive better. Especially on a talon. I very rarely ever use 4w locked on my pioneer. Plus on the Talon, push a button, get thru the obstacle, and then push button to turn off. Easy as hell!

You have far better suspension, gear reduction, 4 inch taller tires, a longer wheelbase and a power commander. Your machine is probably the best and most capable out of the entire group.

Your machine does everything much easier than mine, as it should and a bent tie rod is irrelevant lol.

Few people even attempted to climb v rock. I think you and I are the only ones that climbed both sides.

Somebody has to keep you LE boys straight! I’ll give it to you that you were the only one that attempted slate rock. I was loaded too heavy and it wouldn’t have ended well.

I love locked vs i4wd ...um..er...discussions.
I need not state my opinions I think that are well known. Cuoutdoors probably could have made it on slate rock though. With the extra weight of the I 4wd up front and no weight in the rear I think you coulda made it

And if he had a locking diff and something other than truck tires.. he could have effortlessly gone up it!

All I could think about was how much blood there would be when I flipped and that front window broke. After seeing Todd's cage I'm not sure I would have survived a role from the top of slick rock.

My machine rides like a 40 year old lumber wagon compared to yours and that is comparing yours loaded down with 2 guys stuff.

I'm looking at new wheels and tires and new suspension

But the lumber wagon life is the real life, how else you gonna know there is a bump in the road if you can't feel it! I understand the feeling with my all original rear shocks haha. But yeah with a stock cage you probably be in bad condition. Put on the upside when you were at the hospital none of us would take your front axles
