Who all has a high lifter 2 inch lift? How do you like it? Mine came in today and it should be installed by the end of the week. I have 29's and was getting some rub on turns and in holes. Hopefully this will take care of that. Any one know if it will void the warrany?

I installed a highlifter 2 inch kit last year, I have put almost 1000 miles with it installed no problems. I am rolling on 30's no rubbing issues. It took about an hour to install. I actually ended up with about 4 inches of lift. I am not sure about warranty. I've had my machine almost a year and a half so haven't had warranty in a while. the only thing that I noticed is that it narrowed the machine up by bringing the tires more underneath it, I drove it like that for a while but I diddn't like the way it looked so I put 1.5 inch wheel spacers on it. GOOD LUCK BUB

Any one have a picture of their highlifter lift on a VI. I need a pic of the rear mount. I am way off from landing my shock. I would have to stand in the hub to force it in and that feels wrong?

Hope that helps. Keep all bolts loose. Gonna have to pull down on it a bit it's tight
Just thought of something. If your jacking up one side at a time the sway bar may be keeping it from flexing all the way down. If so try jacking whole back end up and it should go on with ease

It seems like if i do get it to land into position i am going to be putting a ton of stress on everything. i didn't try the sway bar trick, were you able to re attach the sway bar once it was attached. I was also curious if guys were adding limiter straps to theses kits? I see them on the suspension lifts.

sweet i will try that i was getting ready to send it back thinking that perhaps it would't work with a 2016 VI. I am a little concerned that it seems like the axles are getting pulled to their max, but it sounds like there hasn't really been any issues with that.

I installed it last night and didn't like the angle it was putting my axel in. My springs were hard in to the a arms. I ended up with 4 1/2" before sag way to tall for where I will be riding. I will be sending mine back.

Smoke I might keep it for a while and see but i pulled it off and went back to stock for now i actually like the look better with my 28's and where i hunt the is a few sections that i have to side hill for a ways and it could be real harry if i was any taller. i am sitting at 13" clearance now we will see how much it sags. i am thinking i might try to go catvos next year or radflow. I will post a pic today when we get back and you guys can tell me what you think.
