What is the status of the Rhino? Is it terminal? My daughter needs a motor for hers if you are going to give up on it. LMK

As incredible as our Rhino has been I learned it is not entirely indestructible.

Found a few issues with my 2008 Rhino's frame this week. Just a suggestion that owners take a few minutes to really inspect their Rhino frame- It appears we damaged it initially during the Summer and it is now past repair.

With the above in mind- our Rhino has been nothing less than a workhorse and a joy to own...



Do you have a long travel kit on it ??? If you do the frame isn't the problem in my opinion . I have 2 Rhinos (2006-2008) that have been beat pretty hard and have never had any frame problems ..

The long travel kit was not the problem- It was the tree we clipped. Damn thing ran right out in front of us.
Agreed- the Rhino is an excellent vehicle.

You do realize I'm talking about the 4 legged Rhino with the CA. plate? ;-)

That $5700 quote is mostly labor, the actual frame should be somewhere in the $1200-$1500 range. You basically have to completely disassemble, then re-assemble on the new frame. It's not difficult, just very time consuming. You could do it yourself if you had a whole garage and lots of time.

You can have any frame repaired but you have to trust the guys doing the work. And it can get expensive if they have to take it apart to do the work for the same reasons, labor.

If you are not a heavy hands on person you might be better served buying something newer. The RZR is a good unit but I can tell you this, no one makes one that is perfect and indestructable. On any off road vehicle if you are buying used it's a buyer beware thing. In that case ask them if it burns oil, dirt and sand through the motor kills the rings. You can easily spend $1-2k on a rebuild depending what else might be damaged (valves...).

Good Luck!

Rhino is gone! She was a good one!

Happy with the 900 RZR but must have a 1000. Not sure if I should buy a 2 seat 1000 and keep the 4 seat 900 or just sell the 900 and buy a 4 seat 1000. [emoticon]
