2 wheel drive instead of 4
My girlfriend and I both bought Rancher 420's but opted to go with the two wheel drive instead of 4. We didn't think we'd need 4 wheel drive but the more we get involved riding and the more challenging trails and river riding we do, we're now somewhat regretting the decision to go with the 2 wheel drive. I've gotten stuck several times, but at least I got to use my winch for the first time and that was pretty fun. Also, we've been putting enough accessories on these that we could have afforded to buy the 4 wheel drive when we bought them. I guess there are just some things a two wheel drive can't do, as much as we want to. Don't get me wrong, we love them and go through some pretty tough trails, rivers, and creeks(check out pics) but I think we should have gotten the 4 wheel drives instead.
My question is: what improvements or mods can I make on these to get more performance as a 2 wheel drive? (like bigger tires, etc) My experience and knowing how to handle 2 wheel drive is getting much better.... I know what I can and can't do and my judgement usually works out for the best, but occasionally I do get a little stubborn and dive into situations that I probably shoudn't with 2 wheel drive. It's still all fun, though. My girlfriend loves pulling me out and we have a blast doing the things we do and to us that's what it's all about.
Any ideas on how to improve a 2 wheel drive's performance to maximize our riding ability?
