Which 4 wheeler would you recommend?

So we have been tossing around the notion of getting a couple 4x4 4 wheelers for some summer fun. What kind would you all recommend and why. What are your experiences with these machines? What would you recommend that will have some power but still be easy for my wife to ride and kids to ride on with us?

I've been looking at the Polaris sportsman 500 X2, its got efi, and the thing I really like about is you can convert it to a 2 up seat with just flipping a few things around, and it has a dump box on which I would like for hunting, you can't go wrong with a honda either, I've had my Foreman 450 ES for over 8 years, and have only had to due regular maintanance on it.

Do you want a utility 4 wheeler or a race/dunes 4 wheeler. It really makes a diff.

I have always had Hondas. And will continue buying them if I don't get myself in an Argo or Muddox.

Right now I've got 2 2007 Foreman S's. 500cc, manual shift, solid rear axle, bulletproof

If kids and the wife are gonna be on them you might want to go smaller though (Rancher), and go with auto trans (they slip when they get water in them though) Also, independant rear suspension will be more comfy, not as tough though (and you DON'T gain ground clearance with indepenant suspension, don't buy into that)

I have more stories than I could write down about how a Big Red wheeler saved the day. I live, and grew up, in AK (Nasty trails,, sticky mud and MILES from any help), my family and all my buds have always trusted Honda to get us in and get us back out (and they always have)

Honda all the way. I put 10,000 miles on my rancher before I sold it and it still runs today. Now I have a Rincon that I absolutely love. Plenty of power, 4x4, rides good, handles good, looks good.....

Polaris 100% We have had em in my family for years with great luck. I would honestly just go look at em all and get what you like best. THey will all have issues and they will have something the other guys don't. The things i don't like about honda is that they are too overpriced and they still don't even offer a full locking front end. So for me its polaris #1 and yamaha #2.

Polaris 500 EFI
Best plug and play option for novice riders(wife and kids), Polaris 4x4 system is truly amazing.
