New vs Older

How do the new model Tracker/Sidekicks Compare to the old models? Is either really that much better offroad? The new ones are available with a v6, but they have an independant front suspension. Which would really be a better choice? Im n the market fo a new car now and want something reliable(got tired of constantly fixing mny jeep).

Re: New vs Older

If you find a Sidekick/Tracker with factory solid front axle... lemme know! They all have IFS.

I do think we'll be offering up a solid axle conversion kit for them in the next year. With the right gear, they can be pretty cool vehicles. Dealing with that IFS stuff though really limits its offroadability.

Re: New vs Older

I have a 2000 tracker and I love it mine has limited slip front and rear . It will go just about anywhere that isn't too deep or rocky, there in lies the problem HEIGHT.It goes like a bat-out-of-hell on the road and in the sand it was unstoppable on the beaches of North Carolina. If Glenn comes up with a solid axle that would be cool to get some more lift than the spacers that I have now. It rides like a sofa and wasn't at all tiring on the way to NC from MD about 400 miles. It's my daily driver and as long as you choose your line carefully you'll be OK off-road. I go off-road alot in the course of my day on some pretty crappy trails and the old girl hasn't let me down yet. I have 20,000 on it and I have no complaints or problems yet and I get about 30 mpg with the K&N airfilter. Yes they are worth the money I have K$N's in every vehicle that I own.
