Well if you want opinions, you've come to the right place.
I say stick with what you know, and that's Polaris. My guess is that you want to move up to something bigger-better-newer than your fan cooled 440.
You can't go wrong with a liquid cooled 500. The Liberty engine is supposed to be better than the Fuji, but both are good.
If you want to go faster than that, look into something with a 600.
Are you looking for new, left-over, or used?

One thing you might want to do when you are looking at sleds of any and every brand, is actually sit on the machine and see if it feels good or not.
I've actually sat on three different wedge style Polaris machines, and all three had a different feel to them.

cant go wrong with any newer 600.. if your not all about top end. a newer 500 would work well.. good torque for trails.

I would say any cat 600 cross country edition (or 580), or for that matter, pretty much any 600 that you can get a good deal on. From 98 up theres was tons of good sleds that would fit that riding style well.

since you do trail riding I think I would go with a fan cooled motor
Brand that's all personal preferance,I see you like Polaris that's a thumbs up!
If the trails you ride on get hard packed a liquid cooled motor has the chance of overheating.
Look at a 500 to 600 sled.

wilb I haven't had the problem either just know a few that have
had that problem this year.One guy popped the motor in a 800 RMK
(broke the piston skirt)said he got the sled hot.
We use his fan cooled sleds for Mountain Lion hunting seem to work good on all the trails.
When we have to break trails it's with my 700RMK or his 800RMK
Just what I've seen not saying it's a common thing.
