Took my first ride today with the new lift kit on the RZR. What a difference!

Last week it seemed like it bottomed out every couple miles on a rock or stump etc. Today, I could straddle whatever I chose, and climb any step along Trail 1 or 2 without bottoming.

I am very happy with that mod. At the same time, it seems to have strengthened the shocks and springs since their mount position was moved. It just plain rode better.

Right now all of them. I will make my decision after I sell my tractor but I am leaning towards a Ranger or a Prowler.

At prentice this weekend, I noticed RZR pushing through the corners pretty bad, at Nascar speeds, and bottoming out a few times especially on the water breaks. The stock springs are not going to work for me. Several people told me that before I even bought one but I guess I had to see for myself.

So after some hard research , a call to California, and help from JodyT, I have a set of Heavy Duty Progressive shocks and springs on there way, we shall see at Pickett on April 3rd to see how they work...........
