Thinking about going with a Rubicon with IRS/PS

Since the Rincon doesn't have power steering, and I'm not getting any younger, I was thinking about selling the Rinny and going with a newer Rubicon with IRS and power steering. I have a 2007 Rubicon that I'm actually selling to a buddy of mine, and it's a great machine. I can't say I'm worried about the power loss of a 500 verses the 680 because my Rubicon will beat my Rincon in any drag race up to about 1/4 mile. Top end is a different story, but I'm a trail rider, not an ATV racer.

Any useful input?

Ive had both, and the Rubi lost to the Rincon from a dig, or at any speed...

Any who, the new Rubi with irs is a sweet machine!

Thanks Ultra. I hear you on the racing the two. Compare 20 different machines and get a lot of mixed results. My Rinny has lost to two Rubicon's, a 2006 and my 2007, so she must be slow!!!
