    I think I’m going to buy one

    Merry Christmas everyone. I just registered and have a few questions. I have been researching side by sides for the last 6 months and the wolverine is tops on my list. Teryx is second. Anyway tomorrow or Saturday I’m heading down to the dealer to discuss pricing and look one over. Is there any part/aspect of this machine that is a major problem?
    Any regrets on the purchase?
    Any must do modifications that should be done before it leaves the showroom floor?
    Thanks in advance.

    Are you looking at a gen 1 wolverine, an x2 or an x4? I don't have any experience with the original wolverine but if you are comparing to a teryx, the x2 and x4 would be more comparable.

    I just bought one (x2 rspec). Sight unseen as the dealer was about twelve hours away. Our local dealer had one which I did have a quick look at, but was sold before I could go further and the dealer has a bad rep. Never drove one until mine turned up. I am very happy with it as it is.

    So why a yammy? Well back in the 90s I worked in a remote part of Australia. Yamaha Big bear quad bikes and Yamaha out boards for our boats were our only source of transport. Every thing yamaha from 200 hp outboards, the quads as mentioned down to eight hp out board motors. They just kept going with a lot of different users and the bare essential maintenance. All of the gear was used seven days a week. We did turn it over about every eighteen months as the quads would slowly fall apart, but the motor gear box would keep going.

    We had one JD five wheeler tipper POS. It spent more time broken than being used. That put me off JD for ever. But having said that on recent hunt trip we did about seven hundred klms in a near new XUV590M. I was impressed. The only down side for me was lack of suspension and ground clearance.

    My 2 cents worth. Spend it wisely.

    I’m looking at the X2 rspec and will add a seat to the box eventually.

    I'm not sure what your intended purpose is, but if you are looking to eventually add seats, you would be better off going with the x4. The x2 and the x4 are on the same chassis. The only advantage that the x2 has is that it has a dumping bed and better shocks on the rspec. The x4 is much more versatile as a people hauler. It already has the seats and cage installed. If you want the extra space for cargo, slide the seats forward. Performance wise, they will be nearly identical. In the long run, adding the seats and cage to the rear of the x2 will probably cost you more and wont be as good as the x4 rear seats. Just my 2 cents anyway.

    It’s got to be able to haul a moose. That’s why I was considering the x2 model. I don’t even know if the seats are removable, if they are x4 would definitely be the better choice.
    Hope to go look later this afternoon at a wolverine.

    X4 seats are easily removable. 4 bolts for the tracks (per seat) the seat backs ride on and 2 more bolts for the seat bottoms. I didn't bother removing the seat bottoms in this pic:
