1999 6x6 Issue

I'm a newbie here, and thanks to all that help me out with this.
I have a 99 6x6 that will barely move in D2, but D1 seems okay.
Any thoughts on this?
Thanks

Someone with more experience should answer here soon, but possibly a belt or clutch issue it sounds like.

I would check the belt first. It is the most "consumable" part of the drive train and should be the easiest part to change.

The belt was changed last year, and that didn't cure the problem.
The Ranger only has 140 hrs total, so I am wondering what would cause this with so few hours...

Well, my friend has a 2002 4x4 and when his would only work in certain gears it was real bad news. The rear end was worn out and needed to be rebuilt. Something about splines in areas that don't get lubrication and don't have seals to keep water and dust out. So it may be your rear end.

Call around in your area and try to find someone who is familiar with Polaris clutches (and hopefully Rangers) and see if you can pic their brain. Maybe age has caused problems in the clutch, who knows?

I'll let ya know what I figure out.
In the meantime, if anyone has other suggestions or experiences with this problem, please feel free to post them.
Thanks

Okay, so D1 is primary driving gear, and D2 is to be used on hard surfaces-light load. I lifted the rear end and put it in D1 and all 4 rear wheels turned and I could hear the tranny whine a bit. I put it D2 and did the same thing and got the same results. How come the front 2 didn't engage for D1?
Can someone clear this up for me?
Thanks

I'm afeared you're going to have to dig into it.

But when it's all said and done, you have so much more machine there.

I would hunt around and find a service manual before I dug too deeply. I found one online (pdf) for my 2006 500 4x4 and paid like $5 to download it.

Where are you located? Maybe a local member could help you with the wrenching.
