Any personal experience, feedback or knowledge would help me greatly, PLEASE!!
Have a 2019 Ranch VI and its a grocery getter lol.. Seriously, my 4 kids and me/wife love going out with this machine. I have always been a Yamaha fan, started on a big bear way back.
So the only problem is- I was recently relocated to Texas for work and being from Florida we didn't have mountains. Well now our riding not only includes mud holes, but mountains, rocks and I'm getting high centered ALL the time. I'm tired of winching off rocks 100 times a weekend lol So I'm looking to lift it for that reason and the other is that EVERYONE is running crazy lifts/tires nowadays and the ruts they leave are a serious pain in the ASS!
Where I'm stuck is what works and what is MAX- not a lot of option for us Viking guys. Any personal experience, feedback or knowledge would help me greatly, PLEASE!!
Here's what I'm thinking, thoughts/suggestions?
1. Yamaha Viking 4" Portal Gear Lift (GDP) with 30% Gear Reduction
2. Yamaha Viking 2" Lift Kit
3. Wheels 18" ST-3 UTV Wheel (Bronze) By System 3 Off Road (4/156 bolt pattern)
4. Wheel Adapter/Spacer - 4/110 To 4/156 (1.5-Inch)
5. System 3 Off Road XM310 Extreme Mud Tire - Size:33x9.50-18
Does that seem like it'll all work well/fit? Is the 30% portal reduction to much? Will that tire fit without having to start cutting the body? I have never lifted a SXS only trucks, this is new to me. I will be wrenching all myself, at least I have that skillset.
Hang on. Texas has mountains? Drove across there and don't recall seeing anything but some hills.
