I took the "X" for it's maiden Voyage over the weekend. In one word Impressive. I have been driving a full size Woods Buggy with a much larger stance and thought that the Commander would not compare. Well I was able to keep up with my Buddy in his Woodsbuggy with out a problem. We typicaly ride extreme rocky trails with steep Rocky hill climbs and this machine went every were the Buggys went. Climbs like a billy goat. It did take much of the first day to unlearn my normal riding style with the Buggy and learn the Commanders traits. I keep reaching for the Cutter brakes that were not there lol. They are totally different machines to drive. I will say the smaller package did allow me to maneuver is tigher places than my Buggy and that was a plus. Some of the Good: Fast, responsive, powerful, confortable, plenty of storage and it keeps you pretty dry in the mud and water. The Engine braking on this machine is excellant. When in low 4 wheel drive it will crawl down steep hills without using the brakes. Some of the Bad: The machine does bounce you around a lot. I did adjust the supension and that helped. Still needs more Shock tuning. Hopefully I can dial the bounce out. I am sure it also has a lot to do with the smaller stance. It needs more ground clearence for were I ride. I hit bottom a lot. Good thing I had full Skids. The Commander definatly needs Power steering for my style of riding. I don't like that you have to stop to change the Low/High gear range and use the 2/4 wheel drive switch. The side nets and seat belts suck. The nets need to be replaced with doors and the seat belts need to be replaced with 5 point harness's. Removing the seats is a pain, they get all tangled up in the nets. Overall It is a very nice machine. The jurys still out on if it will replace the Woodsbuggy. Maybe I will just keep them both lol.

Thanks for taking the time to posts your thoughts! I'd be interested in seeing some pics of your riding area. I am sure Unisteer will come out with a power assisted steering in the near future, I have it on my Teryx and it works wonders!
I will try and get some pics of the are to post. The Unisteer EPS for the Commander is in production. They are located in Ohio near me. I have also talked with a Unisteer rep and would like to get a group buy with a better discount. That of cource its ok with you.
