  • Brand: High Lifter
  • Summary: The High Lifter 8" Big Lift is now even beefier! This all-inclusive kit features heavy-duty APEXX control arms in addition to giving you the added ground clearance you need to run up to 37" tires. Your machine will be one of the baddest on the trails.

Take your machine to the next level with High Lifter’s APEXX 8" Big Lift Kit. Increase your ground clearance and make room for larger tires to dig deep and ride hard in most terrains. This kit also features the strongest front and rear control arms on the market. With 1.5” DOM steel tubing, these arms add power, durability, and support to your machine so it can withstand the abuse of a good ride.

The lower arms feature an adjustability component in the bushing collars to eliminate premature wearing that can come from the addition of lift kits, portals, or larger tires. When the kit is set to the factory position, you have 3/8” of adjustability camber in and out. Heat treated and plated adjustable bushing collars allow you to be confident in the strength you’re adding to your ride. This kit comes packaged and preadjusted to the factory position, and factory bushings and caps should be used for installation.

Each big lift kit comes with four Outlaw RCV or DHT XL axles that are custom tuned for use with the APEXX 8" High Lifter Big Lift Kit.

Outlaw DHT XL Axle:

  • Dual heat treatments on the housings to improve toughness against shock loads without compromising bearing surfaces and long-term life
  • Oversized CV joint housings to increase strength
  • Sliding bars on both ends for increased angle capability
  • Housings and bars made from 4340 Chromoly steel
  • Puncture-resistant boots which are durable in high and low temperature climates
  • Molybdenum disulfide, anti-oxidation, rustproof, and high-performance

This 8" lift kit package includes the following components:

  • Heavy duty laser cut front and rear upper lift/shock relocation brackets
  • Eight custom heavy-duty APEXX Max Clearance Control Arms crafted from 1 1/2"x.120 wall DOM tubing, heavy duty support gussets, and shock mounts
