I was looking at a few different models but then was blessed with finding this used one that had 9 hours on it. Guy bought it for a deer lease and within a month lost the lease and his job and just wanted out from under it. Was able to pick it up for half price of what he paid for it new 5 months ago.
I took it out this past Sunday and itís got more power that I expected. Iím very happy with it! Will do a few upgrades such as load bearing roof and bed seat in the future.

Added lift this evening. Have to order 1Ē wheel spacers due to springs barely touching front coil spring, but once that is done, she should be ready to roll!

Canít tell a difference from factory as far as springs go. These Sedona Buzz Saw tires give it a much smoother ride due to their 7 pounds of pressure...

did they rub any before you added the lift? Ive got a 2017 4010 trans mule, and would like to add a little bigger tire without adding a lift.

The didnít rub before the lift, but were REALLY close. After the lift, they just barely hit the spring. I added 1Ē spacers and fixed that problem.

You could just add the spacers and new tires and be good. The height clearance was no issue, it was the width. They are sized as same width as factory, but just a tad wider.
