With a 2" lift if I'm not mistaken you would need different rear axles.

If you're going to lift it, just go larger if you're able to. I plan on doing the 6" lift as soon as it comes off backorder.

All these bracket/spring lifts do is jack the shocks up a little. No one makes a real 2" 'lift kit'.

The 4" from Catvos seems to be ideal from my vantage point. I wish the trailing were a little shorter, but otherwise, it seems to be a very good kit. Though it seems expensive, you have to remember that about half the cost is in axles.

Companies like SuperATV can do it cheaper because they make it in China and the axles are also Chinese made.

Frankly just because it's made in China doesn't make it garbage. So you can pretty much eat the whole china thing. Just saying. If you let china design something, then yes the quality is usually lower. But for companies that design their own products and get them produced in china with their specs, it doesn't mean oh god it's China it's crap.

For instance primaryarms.com sells Compact Prism scopes. I paid $280 for a 4x mag for my AR. It's just like an ACOG, just not $1200. Oh it's also made in China and I guarantee you that scope out performs and is clearer than a lot of scopes for the $600-800 price range of the same style. Hell it was better than my friends ACOG.

Now I'll get back on subject. CATVOS is having issues with their welds breaking, and it's a known defect, and can you guess where it's "made"? USA.

Exactly.

Also I don't recall if it's CATVOS or S3 but one of them because of it making the wheelbase quite longer it has issues with the mud guard. Another member was posting on here about it.

I just put C-Fab lift in mine. 2" bracket lift in the front, adjustable A-arms, and 2" extended trailing arms in the rear with a 2" lift built in. Warranty is for life on his products no questions asked. I did put highlifter axles on all 4 corners too.

My 4'' Catvos widened the the bike by 8'' roughly.
Rear end of the bike is pushed back considerably.

I am running 32'' Mudder InLAWS and have no issues with rubbing.

okay where did you get that bumper? where did you get those light bars? where did you get fender flares for your fender flares? how is that extra "glove box" mounted on the back rack? and does the mudder inlaws hook up better on gravel/dirt/pavement than the chitty silverbacks?:th_smilieboohoo::th_smilieboohoo:
