Is the rear diff unlockable or is it fixed? Same question for the front. If I would buy one of these, I would use it quite frequently around my acreage which is most grass. I'd prefer to not tear-up the sod every time I turn around.

Do all UTV/SxS have a locked rear? Maybe future models will have that as an option. A couple years after I bought my four wheeler, Polaris came out with an unlockable rear differencial.

REAREND WENT OUT ON ME!

Well went out Monday riding and only got about a hour and a half in riding, so Tuesday towed the Commander for a hour back to the riding area only to have the rearend go out 300' feet from the truck.
Heard clunking and thought it might be a broken drive shaft because I was In two wheel drive at the time. Turns out the drive shaft was not moving when the Commander was rolling back, even in park. Wish we had a E brake on the Commander so if this happened on a hill you could not have it roll away.
I didn't see any oil leaking but there was some mud on it from the day before so who knows, then I washed it when I got home in the dark so we wont kow if there was any oil leaking.
I will take it in for warranty in a couple of days.
I will post how it goes, but I am not the first with this problem and I am sure not the last. Kinda looking forward to the upgraded rearend I heard is replacing the broken ones with, but might be the same we will see.
I have added warranty making it 4 year total with the aftermarket one the dealer sold me, wasn't happy about it not just a BEST warranty at the time but now happy I have a warranty for four years.

Thanks for sharing Bryan....for sure let us know what you find out...
I only went with a year warranty.....I figured I would be putting to many add on to justify the longer warranty....I may be updating things earlier then I wanted....:):)..

I will let you know, I am sure the dealer will take care of it.

Your right I think I am the third one to have this problem.

I have almost no time on pavement so hard to understand how something that should be overbuild could come apart already. I was hitting whoops at speeds of 30-50mph the day before and the whole throttle cutoff problem was coming into play. Maybe they knew about the problem and that is way the throttle cuts out and not because of drive shafts like everyone is thinking. Just food for thought.
