After looking and riding in a lot of them, the wife and I decided that the Kawasaki Teryx 2 was the one for us. Exactly 60" wide with my highway rims and DOT tires. We found that it's more comfortable for all around use, has a 600# tilt bed, the space behind the seats has two 6-8 gallon waterproof and dustproof storage compartments. Very stable on any roads and up in the hills. Sure saves on beating up the truck! The 800 cc motor has all the power we need. The big plus is that it fits on my smaller 10 foot trailer.
It’s hard to squeeze anything wider through a 50” gate.
I hope so. Don’t really understand what they are trying to accomplish. Trails that I drove a long bed F 350 with 35 inch BFG’s down. Is now a 50 inch trail. Sure I had to fold my mirrors in and climb over a few rocks. Another I drive my side x side down with no problems. Now a 50 inch trail. It just doesn’t make any sense. I have seen a few trails that are skinny on a cliff. That I understand.True, but I think 50" is/will become a thing of the past. It's an ancient law that was created before SXS's were a thing. Now SXS's lead the market in sales over ATV's. The more I ride, the fewer 50" gates I see.
