Starting at $6,999 I'd say this would be my choice of a great "all around" wheeler myself. Fully independent suspension, On demand 2wd/4wd, Electric Shift program w/ choice of automatic OR standard shift. I own a 98 Honda Fourtrax 300 and honestly the only thing I'd wish it would have is some more power. It had plenty for pulling/slow going but when it came to on the go trail riding and going up hills was where it lacked the power without having to shift down. The Rancher comes with 420cc for the added umph needed to get up those hills on the fly.
