Any Info from Ya'll with the 2011's

Would like to hear from those who purchased the 2011 Prowlers. Any of the issues from the earlier models ongoing? Curious mainly about the ones left "mostly" stock, as we all know the more mods the more issues that can arise.
There were a lot of comments in the general press when the 11's came out about the level of dependability they exhibited when new. Would now like to hear from the real world.

Love mine did have the transmission push the throughput shaft through the case.

New case looks much improved with webbing.

Only issue in 600miles was the tranny.

Riddler, hope you weren't to far out in the outback when that happened. I know more than one 11 was sold so I guess Darryl is right everyone is out riding, and hopefully not breaking, and enjoying their machines. This could bode well for AC's future.
As an aside I would urge all if AC is anywhere close with the new Demo on the Wildcat go and try it out, you will be amazed by the suspension, the rest is good also but the suspension is to kill for.

I was 16miles in the woods.
It took 8hrs to get in the 16m.

Took me another 17hours to get out.
No reverse but still had 4L diff lock and a huge crack in the block.

The engine locked up 2x's let cool and re-started and continued on.
Poured about 3quarts of oil down the rockers during the trip just to lube things up a tad.
Had to pour in rockers as with the oil would drain out as fast as I put it in.
Machine ran under it's own power all the way out and I unloaded at the dealer and drove it in to their yard.

Hated to have the tranny break but that motor is TOUGH TOUGH TOUGH!

My 2 buddies on rhino's made fun of me but they too were impressed I drove out.

Damm, that is a trial.
If AC would make the trans as tough as the motor Look out.
What part of the state are you in?

My only issue is the power steering throwing the P???? code all the time. I took it in back in the spring for a software update to correct this but the code still shows up.

A good battery or a charged battery will fix that code problem.
It is a low voltage code.
Shut the machine off and turn back on should clear code.
