    I just installed the New A arm bolt fix from Hatchers pass Polaris today. We'll see How she holds up. They are 48$ a piece. I only changed the center axle bolts so 100 dollars into it.

    In order to find any 6x6's on the Polaris web-site, you have to click on "2014" models.


    On the flip side, AMDS just got one of the new Can-Am Outlander 6x6's in yesterday (8/4/14). It's a camo XT model sitting in the middle of their showroom floor, right as you walk thru the front door: WOW! (both for the way it looks and the price-tag)

    Wow, just checked Polaris site.... No big boss to be found. Guess the rumors were true..... Perhaps they bring it back in 2016? What a bummer......

    That can-am is looking better. I guess I'd better start babying my bigboss even more though. Guys, if you drive through water, check your front diffs regularly.

    Wow. Glad I picked one up this year then. I bet the used market is going to go crazy if this does come to pass.

I don't see why they cant just slap an 850 already created, or 570... tweak some clutching/tuning and call it a day.
    Wouldn't be surprised if they do stop making them. Polaris looks at the 6x6 Big Boss as a red headed step child. The dealer told me that Polaris was going to discontinue making them a few years ago but the Alaska dealers howled and got a reprieve for a short while. They don't sell very well anywhere except Alaska and it takes up too much production capacity for the amount they sell. Per the dealer, about 900 are sold in AK each year and that is about 90% of all sold nationwide.

    Sounds like we should all stock up on parts, I was told yesterday by a dealer that Polaris was discontinuing the Big boss 6x6. I guess the 800 won't pass the new emissions regs and they did not feel there was enough market to RnD a new engine into the existing chassis.

    A little more info on this. Polaris has designed new parts but they are not authorizing any repair bulletins to replace the parts. If you want the upgraded parts it will be out of your pocket.

    OK, I got some info on the update from HP in Willow. Apparently there is a new bolt and bushing for the middle axle that Polaris is providing for existing owners in response to the old design breaking. I guess Polaris is confident that this will fix the issue and it is going to be incorporated in all new builds. Not sure of the cost to those who are out of warranty (or if there will even be a cost).

    Nope, no details in the message. I'm going to give them a call today and see what the supposed update is.
