2022 Rmax Sport
I don't mind the mud. Just hate cleaning it after. Got used to getting dirty riding atv's. I do plan on adding something to the stock fender flares to make them a bit wider.
Yes I get it they make a ton of money off these things but I do have to say that in 2008 I payed 12000$ for my rhino and in 2021 I payed a little over 15000$ and this thing looks built much better I can’t really confirm that yet because I only have like 30 miles on it but the thing does have doors and just looking at the changes they made over the years is pretty impressive. Sorry I have been boozen and I tend to ramble on. My point is that’s not that much of a price increase over 13 years.I remember and I do agree but they can only skimp so much before. Enough is enough when they rape you to buy options as in Canada about 3X your price!!
Yes, the lift doesn’t do much damage, but larger tires will make things fail sooner. I’ve lifted dozens of vehicles and have always found this to be true. Looks is a different thing, if you need that, but unless your are unable to do the trails you’d like to, I’d leave it aloneMy question is...if I lift will it affect the long term reliability?

I put a 2" lift on my last SXS (an OG 2016 Wolverine). I loved the look, and the additional ground clearance, and never had an issue with it. A good portion of my riding is off-road during my hunting trips, and I also have been going once a year for a solid three days of riding at the HMT in WV. So a lift would really help with my style of riding. Now I have a 2019 X2 R-Spec and have been seriously considering lifting if for a while. I've had my eye on the 2" lift by Perfex, but I wanted to take a wait and see approach to see if it affected the reliability. Since I've waited I have heard a fair amount of discussion about excessive heat in the rear CV joint hubs after it's been lifted which "might" be causing reliability issues. (Which probably is not isolated to just Perfex.)
My question is...if I lift will it affect the long term reliability? And if so, by how much?
I thank you in advance.
I just installed the 2" Perfex Front Lift last night, and drove it down the road and I am pulling to the left a little.Skelley521,
Thank you for replying.
I have removed the front sway bar, not the rear. Do you think I need to re-install it? I've heard people recommend the rear 1-1/2" setting over the 2". I have a tendency to ride faster than you've indicated. I wonder it that might create an issue?
I have 28x14-10's all around with 1-1/2" spacers on the rear.
I'm not sure. I've not used that lift kit so I don't know. Maybe some others who've used the Perfex Lift can chime in here???I just installed the 2" Perfex Front Lift last night, and drove it down the road and I am pulling to the left a little.
Would it be because the treads are contacting the road in a different area of the tire?
