Ranger 900 Crew Capabilities

New to the forum. Currently own a 2014 900 Crew. The only mods are factory top and glass windshield. It is a base model with steel wheels.

My uses range from farm and ranch, bbq cook off support, to mild off road use. My question is "what are the off road capabilities" or what level of trail use? I am planing on going to Hidden Falls off road park and wander about its capabilities. Not sure how to quantify this answer. Is it capable of Mild, moderate or extreme trails? Would it be equivalent to my Jeep JK with 35's and a small lift or would it out perform it.

Looking at some mild mods to improve its off road performance. Likely just a small 2.5 lift look for effective changes not "bling" (nothing wrong with Bling

The bottom line is; I don't want to spend a lot of money trying to make the 900 crew into something its not.

Thanks in advance...

Looking for a little help. Just want to get some input before either changing a 4 seat RZR or modding the crew.

I've had lifted and locked Jeeps on 35" tires before buying this ranger crew. It's pretty hard to compare with a jeep on 35" tires just because of all the clearance you got. But with that being said I've done a dragon fire 2" lift and super atv forward arms. Then added 30" itp backwater evolutions tires. I have been extremely happy with this setup and seems to surprise me quite abit. As far as trail riding goes the rzr have about the same clearance once you add small lift to the ranger and tires. The rzr will definitely have more power and better suspension for sand dunes and jumping. But my brother bought a new rzr 1000 xp4 and I can go anywhere he can.

Thanks. I am considering the BWA 2-4 adjustable lift and possibly the arched A arms f/r. Like the rocktane's but might retain the stock wheels till i find a aftermarket wheel I like. Most of the wheels I like are bead-locks which I don't need. I am looking for the best combination ground clearance and performance.

Anything bw should be really good. I went with a 15" wheel because later in I plan on doing a utv solutions 4" gear lift and 33" light truck tires. The 15" wheels will give you slot of options on tires

I have no problems following any rzr. I have been on mild to wild trails in Arkansas and mo. I now have 15 inch wheels and 31 buckshot truck tires. I can't wait to see what it will do now. I have 18 inches of ground clearance. I like the extra length!
