After pouring over the data (I havn't driven the Suzuki) I simply can't decide between the two! I will drive them both this weekend but man why is it this hard? I can't find any info on the fuel milage between the two. Whichever I get it will be set up with 27" mudlites and a winch off the dealer floor.
Both machines will run me about 8K out the door fully set up.
The AC weighs almost 100lbs more but has more ground clearance, more suspension travel and a MUCH larger tank. I know the AC is hard to steer on the tight trails but the Suzuki is also reported to be "twitchy" at speed. My buddy flipped his cat first run out and feels that it is fairly tippy but worth it when it comes to getting through the bogs. I like the Diff lock controls on the Suzuki better. I think the racks on the AC are bigger....
You get the idea! anything else I need to consider to help me decide?
