Thanks...I struggled with tires, just so many options out there (which is a good thing). Seem to work well on the wooded trails we have, they definitely got some bite to them.

The only thing that I will be adding after riding around some is upgrading shocks, seems to be lacking a bit in that dept to me anyways.

This forum has be immeasurably helpful in making decisions on upgrades, much appreciated to all!!!

Right on....I was a bit concerned about lack of power from some of the posts but those fears are long gone, plenty of snort for anything I will ever encounter.

2.5" lift and suspension and I'm calling it a done deal.........well at least telling the boss lady that:rolleyes:

For my usage (mainly hunting/ice fishing) P-700 seems to be the ticket!

wouldnt mess with the lift,already stiff from the factory, lifts normally make it worse. it has softened slightly after carring a bunch of wood. keep a bunch of crap in the back now, box and saws and stuff, seems to be getting better but well see

Hmmm....well my issue is in the front. Put 27" tires on and they fit well but with OEM flares and Mudbusters on when I hit a bump at higher speeds I get a bit of rub. Looks to me if I get the body up a few inches and some better suspension I should be good to go.

I have researched it on this forum and others and have a couple scenarios that I think might work. Fox all the way around, which might give me enough lift and stiffen the front up enough to work or Elka fronts only (Stage II or III) with some type of lift. Still kinda kicking around those options. The factory rears appear to be adjustable and I am not trail slamming so not sure if I necessarily require new shocks back there or not. No doubt the Fox/Elka will be an improvement either way.

Still kicking options around...........

Ya.....the cost of shocks is a bit steep no doubt.

I haven't looked into A arms except the Super ATV arched but not sure they make anything for the '18 year model or even move the wheels forward at all? Do you know of any manufacturer that makes A arms that moves wheels forward a bit? Sorry for the questions, I am a newbie on all of this stuff:confused:
