Hi! New and in search of wisdom.

Hello,

I've been looking primarily at the ranger crew for the additional seating but went to a Teryx dealer yesterday and really like the decked out model they had on the floor. Anyway read some posts and it seems there are two major complaints about the Teryx...1.) no fuel injection and 2.) with windshield cabin gets hot. If I missed any please let me know. Well, the 2009 model has the fuel injection should I wait and get it or go for the $10300.00 deck out 08 model? I guess my question is how bad is it without?

thanks,
Lori::

Welcome...

Depends on what you are going to do with your vehicle...when deciding about a Ranger Crew and a T-Rex. Personally I would get the T-rex, I do a heck of a lot of farm work with mine and ride the crap out of it on the trails...kinda best of both worlds.
I would say get the 09....the 08 carbed model won't be made anymore, unless of course you are going to do alot of engine modifications...then the 08 is "CURRENTLY" better...soon the mods for fuel injected will be better...another year or so.

Wisdom...ain't got much here...got a lot of trial and error though!

Lift the winshield 6" and it gets cooler.
09 are fi.

Some smart people on here a few of us are more smart a$$es.
08s have more hp potential now but the FI upgrades will get figured out hopefully sooner, rather than later as it is the same basis for the Brute Force. There is still lots of upgrades for the 09s.

Love my 08, fuel injection would be nice but I want to mod it out and easier to play with carbs. Hard to compare to the Ranger I think, like Teee-rible said the Teryx can work and play - and for me I want more play than work, but it sure can work if needed!

Thumbs up thanks for input!

Seems like the smarter decision for me is to wait and get the 09....don't have any experience with engine mods.

thanks a lot
