    Purchasing x4 literally paying off

    So today the wife and I loaded up the wolvy x4 to take it out on our first ride since purchasing it. We went to Bear Valley in
    Eastern San Diego County that has easy to moderate trail riding and a loop to start the breakin process. I drove us in
    and did the loop 3 times and the wife did the loop twice. On our way back, about 4.5 miles from the parking lot, there is
    a steep section with deep ruts and completely uneven where high clearance is a must and 4 wheel drive is extremely recommended.
    As we get to the top two guys are waving us down, so we stop. Do the standard, "how's it going?", "Good", "How are you?", etc..
    Next thing, one of them asks, "How you feel about making $100?". I respond, "What do you need?". Turns out they are going to do
    some work for forest service to demolition an old helicopter pad roughly 1.5 miles further down the trail. They were going to survey to see
    what type of equipment they would need. Seems they were given bad information about the trail as they had rented a AWD SUV with moderate
    ground clearance. They gave my wife a $100 bill, loaded them up, turned around and went back to the helicopter pad. We were there for about
    15 minutes, loaded up and drove back to their vehicle. They asked if we lived close. Said yes about 20 minutes. Asked for my name and number
    to see if I might want to make some more money when they came back. One of my pics below has my wolvy on the asphalt helicopter pad.Name:  IMG_1966.JPG

    Here I was wonder why people are buying the X4 Wolverine after seeing it. Rather than the x2 which has nice storage. I can't see having more than 2 on 99% of my outtings!!

    If I was out alone and picked up a female hiker and female. It could be my last ride into sunset or bush. Two's enough here.

    If you slide your back seats up in your X4 and run it as a 2 seater you have a very large storage space in the back. It's even covered by a roof. But it's nice to have the seats when you need them as in situations like this. I was on the way to visit my dad just yesterday in the X4 with my dog and ran in to my nephew and his buddy walking to the lake to go swimming, my dad has a house right on this lake, and picked them up and gave them a ride the rest of the way. It's super nice to have the ability to run as a 2, 3, or 4 seater when needed.

    Ahh, I didn't realize they made the seats able to slide. Mine is fixed and only one viable position, unless the driver is extremely short.

    Oh ya thats one amazing feature of the X4. The bases of the back seats flip up forward and the seatbacks have a latch on the bottom that you release and then you slide them forward until they latch into a forward spot like some SUV's kinda do. People talk about not having much storage space in an X4 but that can only be said when using all 4 seats for passengers. Really though the only thing I don't like is not having room for the big ice chest when hauling 4. LOL. I usually have 3 in my X4 while riding and with that extra seat forward I use the footwell for that extra seat for some gear the rest easily sits in the space created by sliding the last seat forward. I'll have to take some pics of the space in the back that the X4 has with the back seats forward. It is significant. Probably close to that of the X2. Just no dump bed.

    Oh ya, and the front driver seat of the X4 and X2 actually slide forward and back like in a car. That along with the tilt steering wheel allow most any driver to get themselves into a comfortable position. The only seat that is stationary in the X4 is the front passenger seat.

    I actually pull my two rear seats out for hunting season (which is super simple) and that gives me a ton of rear storage that’s covered for gear and a critter (if we are lucky). For the rest of the year, the two backseats work out great for the kiddos.

    Ow yeah, with the seats removed I see mad potential for storage space plus the room at the rear passenger footwells.
    Most of the time it is just the wife and I riding , but there were times when we were out with family or friends in our 2016 r-spec.
    With the two seater someone had to stay in the staging area while others were out riding. I also like taking the wolvy on the trail
    to go camping. With 2 people removing the rear seats is a great option. If it was to be 4 people on a camping trip, I could see just
    hitching up a small cargo trailer to tow the supplies.
