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 DHT XL axles that are custom tuned for use with the APEXX 8″ High Lifter Defender Big Lift Kit.
