Power VS Pretenders
  • 50 HP, 812cc, 3 cylinder, DOHC, EFI 4-cycle automotive-style engine has the most displacement and power in its class.
  • 44 mph top speed for barreling down a trail or crossing a pasture.
  • 75 Amp alternator generates 1012 Watts of electricity – plenty of juice for accessories.

  • Independent double-wishbone long-travel suspension (8-inches in front and 9-inches to rear) ensure all four wheels stay on the ground working for you. 11-inch ground clearance helps prevent vehicle from getting high-centered.
  • A solid core steel sway bar reduces body lean and employs an efficient double-ball drop-link for increased durability.
  • Vehicle has one of the highest static stability factors in the industry thanks to a wide-stance, low-center of gravity and long wheelbase.

  • Standard integrated 2-inch front and rear receiver hitches.
Engineering VS The Real World
  • Heavier-duty engine components, like an aluminum head, cast block with painted interior and crank and thrust bearings ensure long life.
  • Hydroformed frame offers exceptional tolerance for twi
    sting under heavy loads.
  • Engineered ductile front cast-iron A-Arms balance strength and weight and are designed to withstand jackhammer trails.
  • Full-steel skid plates guard underbody.
  • Engineered polymer body panels (JDLOY) can be painted and provides improved scratch and marring resistance/recoverability.
