I miss the thrill of 90hp. It’s amazing to ride. It’s in the background of the pic. The renegade will be fixed or replaced with another renegade someday.

The best part of riding the grizzly is after the ride. I get to come home, wash it, check the brakes and Shake the wheels down to check bushings and bearings. Check the oil and ride again. With the renegade it was bring it home, clean it up, shake it down and order all the parts I broke.

Well, the frame on the Silver 2020 got bent up. I was stopped at a traffic light and got rear ended by a Jeep Cherokee. She was doing 55mph and never touched her brakes. Trailer is trash, quad and truck need evaluated but I’d guess they are toast.

Left rear upper control arm pushed the frame towards the center about 2”

WOW! Hopefully no one was hurt. Sorry to hear about the Griz and the trailer (probably truck too) but at least you'll ride another day.

"Welcome back, it'll be interesting to see how long this one lasts.:) "

That really sucks.
Didn't last very long at all, not your fault though. Bet she was using her cell phone.
Lucky you weren't hurt. I've been rear-ended also at speed, it was a cell phone idiot. I probably would be in jail for ringing her neck if that happened to me.

Suggest you check out an R&R brand trailer for your replacement. I've had good luck with the model 714VDC that I've owned for the last 10 years.

Rode 329 miles in Utah on the Paiute trail. Amazing scenery. White Grizzly not has 1100 ish miles on it.
When we arrived in Utah there was gear oil n the floor of the trailer. Seems lube from the rear diff was coming out the over flow tube. I removed the 8mm fill bolt and only a tablespoon cake out. I’m guessing I over filled the rear end when I serviced it.

Note to help folks out. Buy insurance for your trailer. My truck and one of my Grizzlys got covered. I thought trailers were covered under the truck policy. I was wrong. The person that rear ended me had state minimum insurance. $25,000 limit on her policy. That barely cover the Silverado, Grizzly and tow fees. The short version is I’m not getting a dime for my trailer and contents destroyed in the accident.
I did replace the trailer and I’m slowly getting it set up. I didn’t like the 6x12 single axle any way. It was very cramped and I couldn’t stand upright in it.
The new trailer is 7.5 x 16 tandem axle. It’s 7’ tall inside. It’s great having room for two quads and all my gear.
