I got bit that way on a Jeep once. I built that thing to conquer Moab, then drove it pick up kids and get groceries. It's hard to convince that buyer that you babied the machine when its got a lot of mods. Just the nature of what these things are.

As stated above, Im sure your machines are awesome. You'll just have to find 'that guy' thats looking for what you're offering. You've got a somewhat specific buyer.

Good looking machines. I would not hesitate to buy one of these atv's if I was in the market. There are a lot of people stating that they wouldn't because they automatically assume it has been abused because of the mods. It is usually the opposite though. A person that spends $4,000 to $6,000 just in modifications is going to take care of their machine. I don't know how many posts I see on this forum with people asking why their atv is running like crap, or why the 4x4 doesn't work, just to find out that they have performed ZERO basic maintenance on their machine. I would be willing to bet there isn't a person on here that keeps up with their atv as good as a mud/water rider does. After every mud/water ride, I change ALL fluids, grease all the zerks, add stabil to the fuel tank, and wash and wax. Anyway, hope this wasn't a hijak, and good luck with the sale! You might want to post it on the Highlifter forum if you havn't done so already.

I couldn't agree with you more man, well said!

To the OP, those machines are awesome and if you had all that work done at the shop I am sure you have taken good care of them. I also feel your prices as well as your attitude are reasonable.

Not sure if you're on facebook, but one of the mud riders here (southernmudjunkie) started a great private group called the "southern polaris riders". Lots of mud machines coming and going there. You may have more luck there than on this forum as it seems there aren't too many mudders here. Good luck!
