Well I lifted my RZR last weekend, so far I really like it! The GC is awesome, and the best part is I can put it lower by about 3" by setting the shocks inward and it gives a great ride, just a little wide, but no wider than an XP. What do you think? My lifted RZR D076cd37-b071-f1ef

Looks good there mattman. Is that the superatv 6-8" lift? How wide does it sit lifted and when it's lowered down?

With that much lift i bet your cv joints are binding like crazy, best jack it up and see if the wheels will roll free, if they dont it wont be long till you will be spending big money to replace the CV's . You can only lift a RZR 1.75'' more and you get CV bind.

They are upgraded axles already, with a year warranty. I spent the $$ up front!!

Looks good, but I agree. I would get that thing off the ground and see if the axles are binding. I put on the Racertech lift and mine were binding. Had to switch it out for the second generation lift.

Looks good. I'm sure you checked into it before you did it, But I'd talk to some of the guys running big lifts. Driving style has to change a lot from typical trail riding. As in you can't drive over 25-30 for very long at all with out "dunking" your CVs in a hole or the boots will just melt. You also have to pretty much always use low and use a lot of throttle control in mud holes. Where standard setups tend to just spin tires Those big machines tend to dig in and just shear axles when they grab

Oh I know all about breaking parts. I broke the stock rear shafts in the mud. This lift is not really that big compared to some of them out there, in talking with super ATV they said that I would be fine crusing down the trail at a higher speed. The problems with some lifts is it puts the axle at such an angle the cv heats up and melts the boot!!! So far no issues with heat on my end! There is also no binding on these Rhino brand axles at full extension. Only time will tell, but I think they will be fine, I can't stay out of mud holes along the trail anyway...

So that is the 6-8 inch lift with the 6" a-arms then? Are you running stock lenth shocks? Does it ride rough with the lift on?

I'm thinking about selling my 4wheeler and have been thinking a a long travel kit.

Its their 5" kit with the 6" brackets. I love the ride so far, I have the shocks turned all the way down so it is a better ride then when I had to have them turned all the way up to clear the tires.
