yeah, I agree i had one it was reliable but had no low end what so ever
Sounds like you've done your homework & researched it! I think from what you describe you'd be pretty happy with the rincon. It would ride much better than the rubicon.What year did you have, I have heard that they have put a torque converter on the newer ones and it helped out with the low end power. I also have read that the fuel injectors helped out. I really am looking for something to trail ride and do a little climbing and mudding but mostly will just be trail riding. I had a artic cat 400 a few years ago and very rarly did I use the low gear, and it usually did not help and I had to use the winch to get out anyway.
Me and my buddies called it the rincon stall, as soon as the water hit the motor or if you popped the throttle in deep water/mud it would go dead it was almost like it would vapor lock itselfWATCH THE RINCONS,,,,i have seen alot of rincons before and all of them die when they hit water,,,,,if your cruzin out the trail and splash a puttle it dies becuz they have an auto shut off senser in them,,,,,i just dnt like them, 2 of them couldnt pull my friends recon out of a mud hole
