Just the regular bracket lift if you need one. Too much of a lift and then you have to start extending swingarms, a arms, custom axles and driveshafts.

What size tires are you putting on? You can put 27”s on without a lift, according to folks that have. (I’m not one of them)...

2008 420 Rancher manual shift. Rubicon alum wheels & tires (old style). RT 2500 Warn winch.
2015 500 Rubicon-manual shift, 3500SR Terra Superwinch. Strong made receiver hitch.
2018 Foreman, manual shift, Warn provantage 2500-S, KFI mount.

I've been looking at the highlifter but also seen a guy on YouTube take some PVC and make spring spacers and wondered which would be better or **** maybe even use both??

can I ask you WHY do you want to lift the atv?
adding spring spacers will make for a much harder/harsher ride, , lifting an ATV period, gets the center of gravity higher
and the newer honda 4x4's fit 27's and even some 28's without any lift
and any tire larger than these, your going to be needing a gear reduction , as the power loss from larger tires will be very disappointing without one!

and again, if you get the lift too HIGH< you run into problems with drive line issue's and other things, so adding BOTH a lift and spaces wouldn;t be good on your atv!
thus why I was asking WHY, as if your NOT planning to do more mods, maybe skip the lift all together? will make your atv ne a lot more reliable NOT having one on it, and NO spacers, means better ride quality!
just asking/saying?

28's will take a lot of HP off the atv, ad you might not be very happy with things after putting them on, pending what tires?
1/2 inch og ground clearance between a 27 and a 28
having taller tires but no power to spin them, ain;t going to NOT get you stuck, so heads up! LOL

so you think adding a lift and larger tires is the answer?
just asking NOT bashing

mud changes so picking the correct line thru it, many times is what makes one atv go thru and another NOT, its NOT just tires and clearance
and many times its about HP to SPIN a tire so it self cleans, going too tall a tire/heavy, and NO HP top spin them, you will get struck FASTER than a guy on smaller tires that can keep treads cleaner!
more to mud playing than just size of tires and how high the machine is!

We have the same machines only his is a few years older and I want the lift mainly for a little more ground clearance I wont go anything bigger then 28s because I understand putting more pressure on joints etc...maybe one day I'll go extreme but that'll be in due time
