Code54, thanks for the update. Just curious, have you adjusted your rear shocks?I have seen several people mention that there is little owner provided photos/video of the Mule and some have concerns about its ability. Here is an idea of what we use ours for. I was hauling wood today and snapped a quick photo. I was able to come home via the local roads and one has a very steep section to it (Often impassable in the winter even for 4x4 trucks) - the Mule came right up with the load on the back without a problem. The only snag I hit was my trailer hitch scrapped the hump in the middle of the road a few times because I was so loaded down.
I hate to admit it but the shocks are set at the factory presets - I was going to adjust them and really forgot all about it. If I crank them up I am sure it will droop less but then again with the amount I had on it Im not too sure how much it would have helped.Code54, thanks for the update.

I think you will find an improvement in how she sits if you dial up the shocks to their max setting. There is a few hundred pounds in the difference between factory setting and max setting in terms of recommended settings in the manual.In the near future mine will be filled with wood too! Great to hear and see what she's capable of! Riding around here in Illinois for vacation today, had 6 people in the cab and 2 standing in the bed, my receiver dragged on the road a few times too on the stock setting.
Speedy, good stuff. What drive mode did you have your Mule in during your hill climbs? Just curious; I have been amazed where I have been able to run in 1 wheel mode. Any sketchy areas I go into I lock up the rear and put it 4 wheel drive, so I haven't been pushing the envelope to find the fail point in one wheel mode.I had mine half full of firewood last week and went up the steepest hills (2 of the hills we went up are considered dangerous) on our property and the mule handled it just fine with ease. I was unsure of its capabilities before buying it because of the lack of videos online, but I am sold now, I am 100% confident that it will do EVERYTHING that I want it to do. So happy with my decision to buy the MULE. BTW I have 165 miles on mine already!
