    I had Wildcat Trail and Sport and also was waiting and waiting for the XX. They had problems in beginning so I went with X3. They are a heavy machine which is good for racing but they still break. RG has the lock up on accessories with Speed so there are less aftermarket companies making products for them.

I would like to ride in one to compare the ride of the X3 I have gotten to ride in a standard X3 and XDS R and the 2020 RC RR. I can build HP in the XX if the suspension is good I don't want to have to do suspension and HP. I also like the the bed area and the ability of removing it easily to work on. I will probably just go with an X3 because I don't know where I could get a ride in an XX and won't make the gamble without a test ride on the dunes.
    I looked at the XX the other day and noticed the bottom door jam was high and REAL hard for me to get in and out of, I'm not as tall as you but at 6'3" with a bad left knee it's a little hard for me to get in and out of the X3 but not as hard as the XX

    Also I like the x3 has hydralice lifters that save on valve adjustment cost.

    After reading up a little on Textron and what they are doing I don't trust them to be in the SXS business for the long term and it seems they do not support their product very well I am taking their machine off my list.

    Most aftermarket cages are lower than stock.

    What type of riding will you be doing? If you are desert and trails the XX is fine. If you are primarily dunes you will be disappointed with the power.

    Yeah, but most aftermarket cages aren't built until they are bought. So if he states he needs more head room, the aftermarket dealer will comply if he wants the sale. If not, he can go to another aftermarket company.

    Exactly!!….Couldn't agree more with this post...I'm on many sites with the different cars a own and a few of them are useless

    because no one can dare mention another brand without being either banned or censored which I fine stupid...This site is by far the

    best I've ever been on for being very fair and open to people speaking free or free to speak of other brands and yes ask questions

    there's a lot of smart people on here that have owned other brands and can give someone guidance and help when needed...that's the

    problem in this world in general right now there's way to much shutting others down and needless censoring.


    JMHO!!!!

    You would be surprised how many aftermarket cage builders like to stick to one style and won't do custom stuff.
