I was checking into some lifts a while back, and there seems to be alot of positive comments on the rubberdown customs lift. Search it on here. After the reading I did, if you choose on a lift, good luck on the CV's and axles.

i have the cfm 2 inch off ebay and it works and looks great. does the job have around 600 miles on it. trails roads mud everything is good. time will tell i guess. cv angles still are not as steep as my stock grizzly 660 so i dont understand why they would wear out. and the lift seems to be very well built and cheap to boot so if i turn out to not want it i didnt cut anything and im only in it 59.95 so im happy .

I have the Rubberdown Customs and it is a well made kit - no problems. It's a little more money the some of the others but you get what you pay for IMO

It's not the lift that breaks - a friend of mine ruined his 2 Progressive Suspension back shocks with a High Lifter lift (or that type) because of the way it rests on the top of the shock - broke one top off and bent the shaft on the other. To me a $15k Rhino is worth spending $200 on a decent lift.

I would love to put a rubberdown customs lift on my '09 700, but as hard as I ride it, I'm afraid that the cv's and axles won't take it. Right now I can't afford gorilla axles. If you choose to install a lift, post your results and any problems you have in the future. This might help the rest of us that are on the fence about lifts decide yes or no.

I probably have closer to 30k plus in my rhino and run ishocks all around dont know how the cfm kit would do what your talking (the rear doesnt rest on the shock top) about, anything is possible i guess. Im all for buying good quality stuff but sometimes spending more doesnt get you anything better imo.Maybe with the rubberdown kit i could jump my rhino off our house i dont know the kit works for how i ride and it didnt cost a small fortune and i can remove it very easily if i want. Lift kits don t have to be fancywith a ton of parts to do the job.

Actually, I pride myself on making it a simple install with as few parts as possible. As for jumping any machine off a roof, I wouldnt recommend that And as far as a small fortune goes, I thought I had the best price for the best kit, hardly a small fortune IMPO
