Nothing against Rubberdown as he makes a great product that is forsure. I am running the cfm 2" lift and for the price I picked it up on ebay you cant beat it. I dont even think its worth your time making it for 50 ish bucks.

No the bold on lift will not move. The brackets have some material machined out so its a nice tight fit over your old mounts.

IMO this is the way to go with the rhino if your just looking for a little more clearance. Cheap and very effective.

Would it be bad to only install the rear lift? I have a saggy back four seater. I have adjusted the preload on my progressive hd shocks, but I think the leverage that my wide offset wheels are putting on my shocks offsets the preload of the shocks and hd springs.

IMO just adding the back will make your rhino sit like an old camaro with something to prove. lol I would just put the front and back in its quick and easy to do and its only about 50$ for the kit off ebay.

I have the RDC front leveling kit and it is super strong and does a great job leveling up the bike! I modified it to keep the shock in stock alignment so the shock bushings would not bind at full compression of the suspension.

I would not recommend any lift on the rear unless you run limiting straps or notch the frame. With 3/4" of lift on the rear at full shock extension my right rear axle would hit the frame, not a real big deal but could cause premature failure of the axle.

Just installed cfm 2in lift. I went from 11 3/4 in to 14 1/2 inchs. It seems solid. The rhino is deff taller. And. If i had 28's or watever that one guy had and not 26's id be clearing a 5gal pail. Im 1inch away from clearing it. I give it 2 thumbs up.
