Traded in my 2015 ranger crew 900 that I put 5000 miles on, for a 2019 highlifter crew 1000. So far I am loving the upgrade!!! I put a duraclutch on my 900, but so far the clutch on the 1000 seems to be a vast improvement over the stock 900. Almost everything about this ranger seems to improved. I am nitpicking, but I liked the storage compartments under the 900 seats better. Only time will tell for sure, but so far I am loving it!

Thanks for all the compliments on the highlifter. I am liking it more and more every day!

My old 900 crew
My wheel bearing messed up the first couple months I had it. I broke the 2 rear axles( has lift and 30” tires so this was expected), rack and pinion boot ripped on both sides causing it to wear out, and most importantly it started using oil last few months I had it. I worked this machine fairly hard and drove it everyday doing ranch work. I changed motor oil,gear case oil,
and demand drive fluids regularly as well as air filter and greased suspension. I put a dura clutch in it pretty soon after purchased and never had to change the belt. The highlanders clutch seems like a big step forward from the stock 900.

So now that you have owned it for some time so you still like it? I am torn between a High Lifter and a Back Country. I would change the tires out on the high lifter as I do not need a mud machine but like the upgrades of the High Lifter over a regular Ranger. How is the ride? My dealer said he feels like the High Lifter doesn't ride as well as a Back Country or a regular Ranger Crew.

I traded my 2018 General 4 in for a 2019 Crew Highlifter Ranger. The Ranger is much better all the way around except for top end speed which is not important to me. For me the Ranger crew Highlifter is everything I need.

Hey, sorry it took soooo long to reply. Haven’t been on the forums in awhile. Update on the Highlifter crew. It is running like a top. Haven’t had any problems to date knock on wood. I use it everyday around the farm and it does everything I need it to. It is a beast as far as going through mud and water. I have a love hate with the doors. They are great for keeping mud/cow crap off of you and great for keeping kids and pets in/out. They are kind of a pita when getting in and out several times and they are a little noisy with the rattles but not bad enough where I would take them off. I am about attempt to extend my snorkel risers so my toolbox will be able to set all the way to the back and open without hitting the snorkels. I’m looking at 3”/3.25”-3” coupling that would go to a 6” radiator type hose that would then attach to the top of the snorkel. That was probably clear as mud, but I will post pics to show. If anybody has any better ideas please let me know. I would like to utilize more of my bed so I can fit more 5 gallon buckets for feed. Hope everyone is staying safe during this crazy time.

Ended up using spectre 3”-3” coupling and 6” radiator hose.
