2012 rzr s

Im looking at getting a new 2012 rzr s polaris limited edition. I was just wondering has anyone had any problems with them. If so what are they. What is the best lift for them, snorkels, and whats the biggest tire size you can fit on the limited edition ones stock? 
Also I heard something about the front diffirential being crap. Not sure why that it is? 
But just please comment and give me some feedback

    I have a 11 s and i can tell you a few things.
    If your going to lift it then i would look at a 570. Cheaper new, better motor/trans and you can get arched arms and long travel kit cheap.
    i run outlaw 29.5 outlaw 2's on mine and have not had a diff problem, the earlier rzr's had problems with the plastic spraque (sp?).
    Snorkles, build you own, super easy and cheap
    Axles, go aftermarket asap. I run gorilla rears and cobra fronts
    Clutch, go with a cv tech primary instead of wasting money on a clutch kit
    Be ready to run through brake pads, tie rod ends, bushings and wheel bearings. You will become a pro at these.
    Great bike and lots of fun,

    The pre 2010 (?) models had the cheaper plastic cage that would go out.  After Polaris upgraded the cage people started blowing pinion gears (sometimes diffs).  Polaris then updated that with larger pinion bearings and now just went with cheap axles.  So your axles are your weak point until you upgrade them. Then it's back to your diff from what I hear (but overall it's much tougher than the old set ups). 

    I agree with cypress on the normal issues.  Most people love their Rzrs.  I've know a guy that went back to a Rzr after owning a 1000 Commander.  And the Commanders are nice.
