    I just put a set of 27" mongrels on my 800 crew. They rub at full turn and stuff. Don't think the contact is that bad but I'd rather be safe than sorry. What's a good forward A arm to run? I have a highlighter lift on the crew if that matters. From what I can see the highlifter setup has a bracket you add that moves the shock forward to and the others do not. SuperATV has camber adjustment. Besides price this has been the only noticeable difference I've seen thus far between the two. What other brands should I look at and why?

    I have a set of Backwoods Armor installed on mine and they work great. SDC10179.jpg

    They were relatively easy to install, I went ahead and replaced the ball joints on both front tires while I had it apart.

    2" lift. It did not affect my steering at all. One of the best mods I've made to my Ranger so far.

    Im due for some new tires so I'm thinking about going with some 27" Bighorns. I'm currently running 26 because when I bought it I didn't have the forward A arms. There are several companies that make some great forward A arms as well.

    2013 XP 800 Ranger, Three 2017 Polaris 570 Full Sizes. All subjected to hard ranch work, long hours and rough conditions. 5 years or bust!

    I've converted all of our 800xp's over to 27in rubber as well. Ride is so much better, and the tires are rated for more weight.. the extra ground clearance is nice as well

    @TNRangerXP

    Is that a Curtis cab on your Ranger?

    No, I wish. I have the Polaris metal cab. I just installed Super ATV half doors.
