How do side by sides like the Polairs RZR, Yamaha Rhino, etc., compare to an equally equipped (same tires and similar engine size) 4 wheeler when it comes to going through mud holes and typical terrain in AK? I've heard people make comments suggesting that the larger side by sides outperform 4 wheelers. That seems odd to me given that a 4 wheeler is smaller, lighter, has the same clearance, etc., which should allow it to perform better, i.e., get stuck less. I'm sure some of you guys have seen the two vehicle types side by side so what have you observed? The side by sides look like a blast! I have seen side by sides loaded to the nuts and pulling a big meat wagon on trails that were full of big mud holes so they must do pretty well.
If you know what make/model side by sides work better than others chime in - thanks.
