    Anyone use a Geo Tracker as there hunting rig instead of an atv/utv? If so how do you like it and how do they get around on trails and such? If anyone does own them please post pics. I've been wanting to buy a Polaris Ranger for some time now but every time I go to buy one I just can't talk myself into spending the money. I have an opportunity to buy a Geo Tracker that has been built up a little bit and am seriously considering due to the price being a fraction of the cost. It's a little rough looking but the motor has been gone through, floor boards replaced, good top, lower gears, welded rear end, small lift, custom front and rear bumpers, steel skid plates all underneath, and new 31" super swamper tires. Not nearly as cool looking as a ranger but seems like it may be a good buy if it will do what I want it to. No serious four wheeling but my farm has a lot of big rocky hillsides and a lot of steep trails. Any input will be appreciated.

    I know nothing about them other than they are awesome if fixed up for four wheeling, but a quick google search shows the tracker is twice the weight of a utv. Something to consider depending on the layout of the land.

    I have a cousin that resides and caretakes a little under 400 acres. The owner has 4 wheelers, side by sides, dirtbikes, tractors, and an ol beat up geo tracker. My cousin uses the geo 95% of the time especially in bad weather. It will go anywhere, and most the time in 2 wd. In 4 wd it is about unstopable. I have been with him on several occasions and feel it will go places most 4 wheelers won't.

    With the price of utv's going through the roof, you definitely have the right idea. Heat in the winter and A/C in the summer. They will go just about anywhere a utv will go. I would consider one in a heart beat.

    Put a winch on it, keep the shiny side facing the sky and you should be able to go just about anywhere you could w/ a UTV.

    I bought a Jeep Commanche 2 years ago and leave it out at the farm year round. I was gonna buy a UTV when a guy at work mentioned he had it. I traded him straight up for it. Best deal ever. Thing is a BEAST, and is always ready to go!

    Or a Samurai. They're not as wide and will climb about anything.

    I have a 1991 Mazda B2600i 4x4 that I thought about putting up for sale. I drove it locally but recently traded my diesel for a halfton and catch myself always driving the new truck. I had the little mazda to keep wear and tear off the diesel and my commute to work is only 1.5 miles... It is a strong running truck that uses just a little oil (thinking valve seals) and 5th gear is out (only drove in small town and no need for 5th gear).... Four wheel drive works and it is a tough little truck. If interested, I will get pics and post with price...

    If you don't like it, you can always get your money back out of it.

    I would never, EVER trade away my dodge. Not for a Million bucks man. I traded an old honda recon 250 for it.

    There are a lot of Samurai forums you might check them out. I bet you gain some good insight.

    I thought techteacher or someone else? had a couple trackers or Samuris for sale earlier this year....
    I use to drive thru Green City and there was always several Trackers modified and looked like they were used for hunting buggies at the gas station

    I sold samurais but will get another someday. I got a sxs but my samurais would go many more places the only problem was they were stick shift and harder to get in and out of than the sxs. They both have their place on a farm and really a samurai or tracker is a better all around machine. Biggest advantage is they can be licensed to drive on the road.
