I just got done putting a H.L. lift kit on my 500ES.I can't believe how high it lifted the bike up.I got 13.5" at the floorboards with stock 25" tires.My 27" are on the way,hopefully that lowers the ft cv angles some(???)

Dano has his llifted. He had a problem for a while w/ the rear driveshaft popping out. He has since replaced the shaft, and I have not heard of any other problems.

Raveer2000 built his own lift as well, and has no problems that I have heard about.

My lift works great. I can shove a 5 gallon bucket under mine except for the rear diff.

I don't know what the diff is between the 450 and 500 Fourman's,mine looks the same exact way now with the 27 Carlisle Swamp Pro's I got on clearance for half price.On a budget right now,they are generic Vampires,they;ll do for a year right!!!The lift is crazy on the 500,especially in the ft,I was questioning it myself,I feel better now seeing others in photo's(thanks)...

thats the stuff that can be fun to push with a blade.
and makes all the ground hard, so we can access areas that are impossible to get to when its not there.
also makes the water hard. can you say cyclone donuts? hee hee.
fun changeup to ride, except when you fall through the ice and you quad rolls on top of you pushing you under the water, thats not much fun.

you got to make some brakets to extend the distance between your bottom shock bolt and your braket were the shock bolt goes on . You have to also make sure you can stableize those brakets with a set of smaller brakets so it don't buckle in and hinge.
