I installed the 2"-4" adjustable lift from backwoods armor ($299). I wasn't sure if I wanted 2", 3" or 4" inches of lift and I like knowing I can adjust up or down if needed. The lift kit was easy to install and comes with brackets that simply re-position the shocks which raises your ride.

If you know what size lift you want and don't care about adjusting to different heights, you can find comparable lift kits for $150 - $200. The lift kit I installed didn't come with extended rods for the anti-swaybar so I remove the entire anti-swaybar which ended up being the best thing I've done to my machine. The wheel travel and overall ride off-road is so much better.

Which year and machine do you have? That will determine how much lift you need to clear 27" tires.

I generally discourage lifts of more than 2" because that approaches the "reasonable" limits of the stock CV's. Of course, a lot of that is determined by how you drive (getting aggressive with the skinny pedal has a tendency to break a lot of things).

I went with the Marshall Motoart 2.5" lift. Have been very pleased with it so far.

Like Adam800le, I have the Marshall kit about $200, easy to install and very pleased with the results.

Ranger Pro Lift builds great lifts. I agree with Jerry try to stay at 2" to avoid issues. Forward a arms are actually a better way to gain tire clearance.

Ive been looking at the HL 4" for my '15 900..are you still running stock axles? what kind of angles do you have on the front and rear?

I am still running stocks for now. I've heard the back axles are weak any way but with the 31's i'm sure its not a matter of if but when. I do drive very conservative tho and havn't had any problems. And my father in law with the green 900 has a back axle popping at the moment but thats just because he ripped the boot and let all the grease run out and still hasn't fixed it. He drives like he stole the thing and no problems yet besides the neglect.

Not many running that lift around here and I know that the rears usually have a little steeper angles than the front..I'm not planning on running a tire quite as big as yours but want that additional clearance and like the stance. I ran HL 3" on my crew and had no issues..

Are you running the same size wheels/tires all the way around or wider in the back and narrow up front?
