•  Industry-exclusive three-position On-Command® In/Out 4WD feature lets you switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and fully locked differential 4WD— all with the simple push of a button.

•  Fully independent four-wheel suspension: double wishbones front and rear deliver 7.3 inches of wheel travel and 12.1 inches of ground clearance; five-way preload-adjustable shocks provide maximum tire contact and amazing comfort while navigating rough terrain.

•  Thick bucket seats and that great long-travel suspension system work together to provide the smoothest ride in the industry.

•  Designed, engineered, and assembled in the USA.


•  686cc engine puts out a broad powerband. Four-valve head with 9.2:1 compression bumps power and efficiency.
