I'd look it over dang good if it's got Outlaws on it...chances are it's been "USED" a little more than most. Make sure it isn't smoking any, check the oil, examine all axles/boots, test drive it!

For pure mud bogging those tires are the gold standard, or were. They ride rough on trails and even worse on pavement.

Depending on the deal, you might consider an extended warranty through the dealer, many sell them and might be a nice piece of mind with a "relatively" new piece.

More so than I could have lived with, the dealership that I do business with has had it for over 6 months so they were desperate to move it and it ran fine but I've never bought a used motorcycle or buggy so what the hell...why start now!

What was wrong with the other rzr 1000. And post some pics of your new ride when you get it

some nicks and cracked plastic from being high centered, could tell it had been out in the weather for a while, 35 hours/300 miles, muffler was totally rusted. trailing arms had a lot of chips etc. nothing major but all the little things added up to me definitely wanting a new one...

I think all those stock mufflers rust quick, probably from getting so hot? I've seen a bunch of well cared for 1k's with terrible oem mufflers.

I think you made the right choice for sure. I've always said about buying used trucks. Never buy a lifted one with big tires. No matter how good it looks you never know what that person did with it before you

I decided on the new Ranger after watching what people do to them on You Tube. I saw a video of a dude that had one snorkeled past the roof and literally drove it 100% underwater across a river. After that, I was sold on a new one. At least I know what stupid stuff I've done with it, lol.

Anything can be made submersible. There's a video of a stock Rhino with a tall snorkel on it doing the same thing, you could have bought one of them for a lot less.....Haha.

Yeah - but now he has a NEW one and sometimes the extra money is worth the piece of mind if it makes you feel better. I seem to buy everything brand new unless I'm getting it from a friend, where I know the history.
