Just make sure you carry some ViceGrips with ya.

We caught a tree with the right front wheel and it hit HARD. Drove about 20 feet and the shaft broke off leaving my friend holding the steering wheel no longer attached to anything. I held on as we ran over a pine tree, which also served as an e-brake!

Had to use the Vicegrips to steer it out.

Luckily, he has a great dealer who removed one off a new Rhino and gave him it to replace the bad one. @ 2 hrs and we were back riding.

Just a little heads up since you never know when it may happen to you!
