Much heavier frame. The Teryx frame is much stouter than the Rhino. The engine is heavier, and the Teryx is just a bit bigger than the Rhino all around.
But still at 1300lbs, what's the Rhino? 1000? 1100?

We should be releasing our bed delete kits shortly. They are siliar to the stock bed except that they weight 70 lbs less. The stock bed without fenders weighs in at almost 85 lbs.

Properly? A second seat should be bolted to a couple of frame rails incorporated into your 4 seat roll cage...

BUT I am working on mounts for the bed delete kit...a VERY distant project but it's in the works none the less...

Compare the A-arms on the Rex to the arms on a Rhino.... Rhinos arms look like toys. I kinda wish the arms on the rex were made weaker....they took out my frame instead of bending or ripping apart....LOL.

PS, My A-Arms are still perfectly straight ! Fram ?....well, not exactly
