The new XD's and XP models are the tits. Better from the ground up. You'll be able to cross levees with no problem and cross rice fields with ease.

We run them for prescribed fire. We have some of the older models but are slowly upgrading them. The smaller motor they had in them kinda sucked. The new 700 efi is the cats azz. I can do 45-50 mph loaded with a slip in, 100 gal of water, tools, and crew in the new ones. Get the 6x6 not the 4x4. I have never ever seen a 6x6 stuck and we do most of our buring in moist soil units. I have seen a 4x4 stuck and our 6x6 pulled it out. We also fell through some ice on a burn and I had water over the ops of my boots, but we kept on chugging without an issue. The only UTV to have IMO.

I bought a 2012 400 about a 2 months ago. I hunt on Mississippi River bottom ground. For the past 3 weeks backwater has prohibited us from doing anything but boating in. Sunday I decided to give it a try since the water had dropped about 10 feet. Farm was dry except for the last 150 yards or so to the blind. Had the ranger loaded with 2 adults, a 90 lb dog and gear. Made it both in and out with water about 5 inches from the seat. I didn't really mean to but the water was deeper than I thought.

I am pleased to report that we made it with no issues, however, I probably won't do it again.

Overall, I am pleased with the 400, however the bigger engine and ability to ride 3 adults would be nice. I would buy the 400 again

I've been pleased with my XP. You'll need to run it in low range from time to time depending on how much of a load you're putting on it in the field, but all in all it's a work horse.

I would take a ranger over any other utv anyday of the week! our mule sucks for anything but using it for hunting, my friend has a ranger and it down right beats our mule in everything. our mule is an 04 his ranger is an 06, hover the newest mule's are improving.

For those of you with the 400 ranger, check out my post I have linked below. I highly recommend an additional skid plate.
