These guys make some bad, proven, stuff. Not knocking the SuperATV stuff, but it's all China stuff and do not have very good reviews....

I know of no one personally that has run big lifts like that. From what reading i've done, people have had issues with them. Seems like the Gorilla does Ok if you keep it at 4". Setting it at 7" starts breaking axles and tearing up CV's.

That us what I was figuring invite more for looks then being functional so I'll probably leave it how it is since I gave plenty if clearance already. I do need to upgrade my shocks though my rears are worn out. Now I'll have to decide on just replace the shocks or look into a mid-travel upgrade

I like the CATVOS mid-travel lifts because of their curved A-arms. Using them, they seem to get more lift without other radical changes, and they seem to be pretty reliable, in comparison. The mudders, like the guys on HighLifter give them pretty good reviews.

Not sure what you'd do about A-arm skids, tho...

Like Yank says, everything I've read basically points toward axle issues and problems caused by the angles/geometry if you go over about 3"... 2" seems borderline, and then reliability may be a factor of how hard it is driven, but above 3" seems to almost always cause all kinds of issues.

Guess ill chime in! Well me like multiple others I have delt with Super ATV and only kept getting ticked off.CATVOS has their 6 inch lift for the rhino which if thats what your in the market for is the way I would go. However for a nice lift and still being able to be a good trail machine without tearing it up do what I did and go with the 3 inch. It is I believe the only lift out there under 4 inches that goes about it by doing it with new arms instead of a bracket style. However there are brackets in the front but also comes with the new Arms. In the rear all there is are just the A Arms. When I put them on I also upgraded the shocks to the Red S resi shocks. I have had 0 issues and I love mine! Last time Tory was behind me the whole day riding and I believe its on his list of to do's now as well!

Kent, 2s4U..... roflmao is correct. I was not pointing towards the big lift in perticular, just the company.

What are you guys using for A-arm skids to protect the CV joints on those curved CATVOS A-arms?

The $600 price doesn't look THAT out of line for what you get on the 3" kit, but if you have to then add expensive custom-made skids, it could end up costing considerably more....

Yeah in this business you get what you pay for so in my opinion its worth every penny! Im using nothing right now you would have to fab some up but a couple sheets of diamond plate and a buddy at a metal shop could take care of that.

Be careful of reviews. Most of the time they turn out to be the opposite. Laughing
