Ok I have a question for the everyone and RZR Joe can't answer due to I already know his answer.... LOL. I am thinking about purchasing the Super ATV 4" Portal Lift. I know they are pricey but do you all think it would be worth it or should I spend the money else where? I would be going on a 2016 RZR 4 Highlifter. I have put a Dalton clutch kit in it already and currently running 32" tires. Not sure I want to go bigger than 32s since I have seen Joe break his portals trying to turn 34s. Okay just curious what everyone will say. Thanks

I have no educated opinion on this but those portal lifts are expensive. i was thinking of trying to find a highlifter transmission used to swap out into my XP. My Dealer told me when i asked about buying the gear reduction kit that super atv sells that i could buy a new highlifter transmission and if i did the tranny swap myself have about the same money as buying the gear reduction and them doing the gear installation. So are you saying the highlifter is still not geared low enough to turn the 32's with no problems? That is something that i would definitely like to know your opinion. Thanks

It turns the 32" Roctanes wtihout any problems. I was just looking for more ground clearance and even lower gear reduction. I also want something that would be easier on the drive train. I love my hghlifter just would like more ground clearance.

One thing to consider w/ the portal kits is that they make you about 4" wider per side. Other than that, there is no downside, IMO. I'm a SuperATV dealer and can get you a good deal on these.

the width and height helps and hurts. ground clearance is always a good thing.you can always carry a chain saw but you just got to see if the good outweigh the bad. for me the big bad is the $$  DontKnow

Hmmmm... A portal lift on a 60" buggy? That could make a lot of sense...

Got no problem turning the 34s...maybe even turns them a little too easy. You already know my answer buddy thatsright

Finally made my mind up.....BFG KM2 33x10x15s and going to change the trans gear for an additional 25% reduction. Just need to figure out who's clutch I am going to use.

Well looks like the portals are going to be put on hold. The wife wants me to get a Polaris slingshot so we can go riding together. She don't like my Kawasaki 1000 versys. We went to the dealer today we r going back Monday to pick it up.
