    Getting a 4x4!!!

    I just sold my 2wd as a roller and now im going to buy a 4x4 roller. Anything I need to know about the 4x4 other than the more work you have to do to maintain it?

    If you can, get an Ultimate roller. It has all he aluminum upgrades on it. You will have WAY less broken parts to worry about.

    Its a little more work to maintain but also a lot more things in the drive train to fiddle with to tune it the way you want it.

    Wish I could get an ultimate! I'm kind of on a budget of how much I sold my 2wd for plus $100. So the highest I can go is $220. What gearing does it come with?

    $220.00 will get you an Ultimate roller! Look around on ebay, you should see several! Here is one!

    $225 is about the going rate for a used ultimate roller. There are other B&S forums where even better deals can be found. Google what your looking for and lots will pop up.

    I want a new one not a used (I don't trust used 4x4's because you don't really know if they were maintained). I'm going to need a pinion though what would you guys recommend for bashing? (Only have the 23 tooth from the 2wd)

    If you click on the link that I posted, it is a new truck. It's just above your price range with shipping.
