Ive decided that I am going to get forward a arms/lift if needed in order to run 29.5-10/12 terminators.

I will be doing super atv forward a arms, should i do the super atv 3" lift to be safe?

Anything else? Thanks

I think they say you can run up to a 30 inch tire with the forward A arms only.
I'm in the middle of installing a set of super atv forward A arms right now.
Got it all torn apart and getting ready to put it back together. Just waiting for the shop to warm up a little. I will make a thread about it maybe tomorrow.
So far Im pretty impressed with the A arms. Many on here have said they are cheaply built but mine appear a good bit sturdier than stock.

Forward arms should make 30's possible. I have BWA forward arched arms and have Mudder Inlaws in 30. I have the shocks jacked up on highest setting and have cut off the front tubes of my bumper except for a nub on each side. I also cut the plastic a fog light hole thing below headlights.

If you were starting from scratch, I would recommend the highlighter 4" with forward arms. I am running 29.5 terms with the shocks in the 3 notch and have only once rubbed a tire in a very peculiar off camber situation.

So are you running just the HL 4" bracket lift or with arms as well? What do the axle angles look like all the way around especially the rear? Any pics?

I generally discourage lifts over 2" unless you don't mind upgrading axles soon.

I believe someone on here ran 30's w/ just a lift, no arms.

I am not hard on my equipment, no trying to cross swamps or ponds for me. I understand the consequences of lifting and will upgrade axles if need be.

I have 30's and no lift on my crew with just forward a-arms, they work with the exception of the front bumper. I had to trim the front bumper, but its not that big of deal.

I am on my 3rd build and highly recommend installing the steering stops if your going with the 3" and 2" forward a-arms. i am running 30's now with the occasional rubbing on the bumber when i am in places i probably shouldn't be. i have the gear lift ordered which i think will cure my tire rubbing issue.

I have a 2013 XP 800, so not exactly the same, but with BWA 2" lift and forward arms I easily clear 30" Murder Inlaws. The bottom tube on your bumper will have to be modified (I had a buddy build a complete custom one), but works great heavily loaded at any speed or situation. Having already broke one axle, I'd say stay as low as possible with the lift. My current setup give me 16.5" clearance in front and 17" in rear. That's with HD plow springs in front, home made 1" spring spacers in rear (was sagging due to hauling gear and animals, adding 1" preload was much cheaper than buying HD springs for rear), oh and I'm at inner shock position and 0 preload adjustment on shocks. Hope this helps....

900 Rangers stock lift and tires will bend the oem axles, a 900 ranger should not leave the dealership with anything less than Rhino or Titan rear axles.
