  1. You can check out uShip. I'm sure that there are more out there. uShip | Car Shipping, Furniture Delivery, and More | Shipping Made Easy
  2. Here's a 2020 for $4,500 but it's a 2X4 and it's a long distance from where you are. I see that you're a seasoned citizen like I am and you might want to consider power steering. I love mine. 2020 Honda Rancher - atvs, utvs, snowmobiles - by owner - vehicle... (craigslist.org)
  3. If you give your location somebody might be able to recommend a dealer near you. I know a few of the dealers that used to advertise their prices on their websites don't do it any more so I'd say you'll probably pay close to retail. Always ask for the out the door price because some dealers will add different fees on top of the price. You might want to consider getting a late model used one if the price is right and it's in good shape with low miles and hours.

    I am also very sorry for your loss. I can't even imagine what you're feeling because I know how much my grandkids mean to me. Prayers sent to you and your family.
  5. The democrat party has a hammer and a sickle.
  6. If you're patient and look often you'll probably find one for a good price sooner or later. I think it took me about 6 months to find mine but it was worth the wait. I'm retired and I was able to search several times a day so that helped. I found other deals that were good but they either weren't what I wanted or they were sold before I got to them. I was open to buying a new one but when the chinese virus hit nobody had what I wanted for a good deal. I've heard that Honda East Toledo had good deals but if their inventory isn't built back up they may want list price. I hope you get one that you want for a good price.
  7. I doubt if I'll ever get 3,500 miles on mine but might if I had a good place nearby to ride. My granddaughter has probably put more miles on mine than I have. I don't have any regrets with buying the one that I did. I hope you got over your medical condition and are back to putting miles back on the Rubicon. Good deals are out there if a person is patient and keeps looking. I went through a lot of listings before I found mine. You have to jump on them as soon as they're listed and you still might be too late. I know I was a few times but this one turned out to be the best deal of all.
  8. I bought a 2017 Rubicon for $5,000 last year. He was asking $5,000 and I didn't try to haggle with him. lt had 34 miles, 10 hrs. on it and was in new condition. It came with the light, winch, bags and a full OEM skid plate. I think I got very lucky. Here's the link with pictures from when I bought it. New Guy From Ky. - New Member Intro - ATV Honda
  9. Thank you Sam and I hope all of you have a good and safe Thanksgiving. I know I have a lot to be thankful for. I'm warm, dry, am not hungry and my family are all doing well. We had our Thanksgiving meal in the middle of the day so the kids can have a meal with their wife's families this evening. The kids and grandkids will be back over tomorrow for leftovers. We had Honey Baked Ham, turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans mac & cheese, dumplings, cornbread stuffing, cookies, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, apple pie and ice cream. I probably missed some things but anyway it was all good. It was good and I'm not hungry.
  10. A lot of that old stuff is very expensive. I used to have a Pioneer SX-1980 (weighed about 80 lbs.) which was the most powerful receiver the Pioneer ever built and they go for several thousand now.
  11. Do you still have either one of the Sansui receivers? Were/Are they the DB models? Old stereo gear is a hobby of mine. I have all kinds of stuff but a lot of it doesn't work. I've got tube gear, solid state gear and all kinds of speakers. I have a Pioneer Spec 1 and Spec 2 system but the DC offset on the Spec 2 is running high on one channel so I don't use it. I've got an RT-909 reel to reel and another big Teac reel to reel but it doesn't work right. I have several Sansui amps and receivers. I'm using a pair of old Altec Lansing Flamenco speakers right now and also have a pair of Klipsch Forte speakers that I'll probably put up for sale soon. I can't remember what all I do have and I have learned to work on it some but I need to learn a lot more. I have a Sansui 9090db that I fixed but something else has broke on it and I haven't even tried to fix it. This stuff is addicting.
  12. Blue Sparrow, have you went and looked at them yet? If you haven't that may be the best way to make up your mind. It would be best if you can talk to an honest salesman and get them to explain all of the functions and why the IRS has a higher load capacity. If you're trying to decide between the electric shift and the foot shift it would be best if you rode one. I don't have much experience with four wheelers and a lot of people say the electric shift is problematic but I don't know it that is true of the newer ones or not. If @toodeep chimes in he'll be the one who should know how reliable the new ones are. I'm not trying to steer you one way or the other about which one to buy but just telling you what my personal experience is. Good luck on whatever choice you make.
  13. I have to correct myself on one thing. I said the US Rubicon IRS has a high and low range but I should have said the US Rubicon IRS with DCT has a high and low range because I don't think the manual has it. I can't say which one is best for towing because I haven't used the SRA but I have to believe that using the low range has to be easier on the drive train when towing a load. I have had a person riding behind me that weighed in at probably 220 while climbing a hill that was moderately steep and the front end felt light. When I had a person behind me that weighed about 130 I couldn't tell that they were there. If I were Blue Sparrow I'd try to ride and test both to see which one would work the best. I've found that usually one size does not fit all.
  14. I haven't ever hauled with an SRA so I don't know what it can do but have hauled with my 17 Rubicon IRS. I've been using a 4'X6' trailer that's been extended out to almost 7'. I've hauled big full loads of green wood with it which I'm sure weigh quite a bit and haven't noticed any excessive squatting and I have looked to make sure. The way your trailer is balanced will make a difference. The UK IRS may be rated to pull more weight if it has a high and low range. The USA Rubicon IRS does have the high and low range.
  15. That would work if I have enough room behind the bolt hole on the Honda hitch. I'll have to check it out.
