I have a friend who is looking at getting a side x side but he's determined to get a base model, no mater what brand. I have told him that there is a base model wolverine without a roof, power steering and preload adjustable only shocks. The seats are also different, and maybe a few more minor differences. I have stressed that the power steering by itself is worth the extra coin, but he's hard headed, and isn't interested. ANYWAY, I would like to know what any base model Wolverine owners think about their ride. If there was a previous thread on this, please just post a link and I will read it there. No need to rehash old news.
