HIGH LIFTER REDEFINES WHAT'S POSSIBLE IN AFTERMARKET LIFTS WITH THE GEAR LIFT FOR UTVS

 
(3/17/2014)

SHREVEPORT, LA - March, 2014 (Business Wire) High Lifter Products, Inc., the leader in custom aftermarket ATV/UTV accessories and products, today announced the launch of its newest line of lift kits for UTVs: the Gear Lift. 

Over 18 years ago, High Lifter was the first to design, develop, and market the bolt-on lift kit for ATVs. With the release of the Gear Lift, High Lifter has redefined what's possible in aftermarket lifts for UTVs. The bolt-on Gear Lift utilizes a portal box at the wheel hub, moving the axle center line up 4" providing lift and clearance under the axle center. The Gear Lift maintains factory suspension and angles, eliminating the need for expensive aftermarket axle upgrades.



However, it's the Gear Lift's built-in gear reduction that sets it apart from traditional big lifts. This kit provides a 1:1.4 gear reduction which is about 30%. It consists of three 1" wide, heat-treated steel gears that increase torque and regain horsepower that's often lost with the addition of a big lift and larger tires. By multiplying torque at the wheel, the Gear Lift reduces the amount of torque that is transferred through the CV axle shafts, differential, and other drivetrain and suspension components.

“Anytime you decide to lift an off-road vehicle, there's always more work to be done than just bolting on a lift kit and hitting the trails,” said Scott Smith, President of High Lifter Products. “In the past, larger lifts and tires have required axles, gear reductions, and more to achieve that “stock-like” feel. The High Lifter Gear Lift has taken lift kits to the next level by providing a single, bolt-on large lift solution so riders can hit the mud, rocks, and everything in between. While this technology is not new and has been around for many years, this patent pending interface with UTVs is revolutionary.”

The High Lifter Gear Lift takes UTV lift kits to the next level by addressing critical issues missed by traditional big lifts which are improved torque at the wheels, factory-like ride quality, and reduced strain on the driveline. The High Lifter Gear Lift is available for Polaris Ranger 800, Polaris Ranger 900, Polaris RZR 800, Polaris RZR 1000, Can-Am Commander 1000, and Can-Am Maverick 1000 with additional models coming in the future. Kits retail at $3,295 and can be purchased at http://www.highlifter.com.
