The Rubicon comes with a 499cc 4 valve engine and a carburetor, and I believe it comes with a back up recoil. The trans on these is super smooth and made to tow, but an expensive repair if it ever went bad but I believe them to be very good.
The Foreman has a bigger bore Rancher engine with 475cc and a 2 valve head,,both machines are pushrod engines and EFI on the Foreman. Can't really go wrong with either machine, but for me the Rubicon would get my vote for its extra power and super smooth shifting tranny...Test ride them both and decide.
