Yes I am also considering the 31 EFI. What I liked about the Frontier best of all, frankly, was the ease of access into the front seat, can literally pull myself into it instead of stepping into it. That is of such interest it may overcome all else as I have bum knee and need to minimize ingress/egress.

I agree 8 wheels has to be a better ride and I guessed also that the fuel injection a complete way around the starvation to the carb situation, though I easily got around that with my 16hp by rejetting and resetting the float. Of course, that's after coming to a dangerous stop mid hill and having to back down that hill. One always learns the hard way.

I have a few situations I encounter where I can be at 60% slope, go briefly to 75% and almost beyond where gunning the engine will often see the rear or front wheels off the ground. Sustaining that kind of slope maybe 200 to 300 feet is a test of nerves and machine. I don't go there for the fun of it, believe me. One of these days I'll put together the topo of that trail so you will be better able to visualize it.
