The X2 comes from
the factory with beefy
boxed A-arms, and we opted to test it with the optional, adjustable Fox shocks. It
rides as well or better than the competition.
ODES has gone above and beyond to
create a trail-capable machine. Here
is the OEM bumper, winch system and
LED light bar.
The 29-inch ODES Mudder tires provided great traction, even in the rocky
terrain we were driving in. The black
aluminum wheels look great.
A trick slide-away windshield is unique
to the UTV world. It clamps down in
minutes without the use of any tools.
The LED projector headlight assembly offers integrated turn signals that
will allow you to make this machine
street-legal if your state allows it.
ing in unison, cranking the steering
wheel and putting the gas pedal to
the metal (or plastic in this case). The
29-inch Mudder tires supplied ample
traction along zero flats during the
test. Fifteen-inch aluminum wheels
look great, and the quality seemed to
be on par with competitors’ wheels.
We were excited to see that it has
electronic power steering; this helps
a lot with handling the X2, especially
when it’s in four-wheel drive. One
thing we noticed when we were driving the X2 is the headroom. Being
that our test drivers were both over 6
feet tall, they were complaining about
banging their heads on the underside
of the roof when they were going fast
over obstacles. Taller drivers make
sure to take that into consideration
when looking at purchasing the X2.
The Dominator X2 1000 has some
really cool features that come
installed from the factory that you’ll
love. It has a 3500-pound winch sys-
tem front and rear that will help you
on some of those stickier situations.
Controls for the winch are inside the
cab via a switch, and it has a hand-
held wireless remote as well. It has
an electric dump bed that you control
from the cab as well. That’s a feature
that we don’t see often, and we could
get used to that! On each side of
the bed there are lockable storage
boxes to keep your gear or tools out
of harm’s way. A cool feature that the
X2 has is the LED headlights, day-
time running lights, LED taillights, a
horn and turn signals. This means
it’s ready to be street-legal from the
factory. However, most states don’t
allow quads or UTVs to be street-le-
gal, so it is a bonus if your state
allows it. Be sure to check your own
state’s laws before driving on roads.
There are two LED light bars—one
