4X4 or ATV???

Ok.. So I'm caught between two things I want and don't know what I want more..

ya i would start with a cheap 4x4

quads are cool and all but given our climate something with a roof and heat will make you more comfortable and give you the ability hang out with the cool peeps on this site more often

I was in the same boat, I picked my yoda, but I still look back at that quad occasionally... Maybe this winter I'll flip flop a little less.

they go damn near anywhere and dont let folks say the width is a hinderance as i have seen them go anywhere an atv will go and places an atv wont. you will still need a truck to haul it though.

4x4 might be cheaper to begin with. But then come the breakage and the upgrades. You get a roof, heat, more room, don't need to tow it everywhere, you'll be insured. A quad might cost more at the begining but i find they don't need as much maintnece or upgrades. Plus less breakage. Both have there benifits. I switched over to toys from a trail rig.
