Ok I have a 2015 900xp and want to run 28 roctanes. I want as little lift as possible. Will 2 inch work? I'm thinking a 2 inch lift with arched forward a arms. Does anyone make them combined, the forwards a arms with 2 inches of lift built in? I've looked at Backwoods Armor but they only offer a bracket lift or forward arms but nothing combined. Just seems like a waste of money to have to buy both. Maybe they intended it that way, so you would have to buy both. Any suggestions?

I would like some lift for Xtra ground clearance. Want to keep it low for better axle life though. That's why I'm looking for forward a arms with lift built in.

You can order the BA A arms with the 2 inch lift built in.
You state you want as little lift as possible, you can also order the BA Forward A arms with no lift built in, this should also clear 28' Roctanes.

the 28" roctanes should clear without any lift. may have minimum rubbing on the fender well. forward arms and/or 2" lift should stop that. So whatever route you choose, you should be fine.

I went with 30 Roctanes and no lift, I used the superatv forward arched a-arms. I had to trim the front bumper but other than that they work great. I think these Roctanes are my favorite tire to date.

Toxic-21 sorry I wasn't quite clear with my post, I just meant I want to keep the lift on the small side to avoid axle troubles. I do want some lift for ground clearance.

Gunguy, could you post a pic of your setup? I wanted 30's but decided on staying 28's because I didn't want to have to crank my shocks all the way up. This is my first sxs, so I'm still trying to figure all this out.

Thanks fellas

How much did it effect your power? Any clutch work. I'm thinking of doing something with my clutch anyway because I hate the engagement.

I haven't touched the clutch, but i'm going to do some thing just because I can't leave it alone(clutch). I just like to tinker, i'm going to do the cheap Dalton clutch first and maybe the Dura clutch later. The 8 ply Roctane is the only way to go, these rangers are so heavy that anything less just won't hold up. I had the 30 inch Bighorns on my XP4 900 and those things held up ok but they are no where near the tire these Roctanes are.

Thanks gunguy! I think I'm going with the 30's and the 2 inch lift with forward a arms. I've been looking at the ddp clutch. Now if I can get all that with the rzr ECU, I'll be set!

From what I understand, the forward a arms make all the difference. I will be getting the forward arms with 2 inches of lift built in.
