Ok, this is a question I am asking for someone else, I am trying to be as impartial and non-baised as possible.

Which long travel kit would you recommend? Also, how would you answer the following questions in reference to the kit you are recommending?


Does the kit put extra stress on OEM parts that do not get replaced (spindles)?

Can I use any type of wheels (10", 12" 14", stock wheels) with this kit?

How do I know which kit has the best shock combination setup?

I have the SCF kit. I personaly think it is one of the better kits out there.I am running the Kings with it. I have not broke anything yet ( knock on wood ) and I am hard on equiptment. My front shocks seem to be set up perfect but the rears need some work.As far as wheels I doubt you could run a 10 but I'm sure 12s and 14's are just fine.

Not possible ..... You love that Rhino Mafia kit way to much to be non-baised .....

Im sure this is bias but I would recommend LSR's XTR kit because its built great and Greg is ALWAYS willing to help with any questions. That says soooo much to me as a consumer.

Service is high on my priority list and Greg doesnt fall short there at all.


The Kit kicks major ass as well so its a win win. It doesnt put to much added stress to the stock parts, on the newer kits you can use your stock wheels and tires, and they are tuned in with Bilstiens and Elka's.

Sure seems like a tough question to answer. I have only been in two long travel Rhinos, mine with Fabtech, and a friends with Mason. They both work great.

I was wondering this. Is now a good time to sell then if new things will be out next year?

Do you think the RZR and new faster rhino and maybe a Honda and Kawasaki may make the rhino monopoly over?

I would put my money on Honda for the more innovative design and Yamaha for the best overall side by side, rumor has it they are coming out with an 880cc Rhino.

Yeah, Im sure the new Rhino will be sweet....but Im sure theyll also have a killer premium on them as well. Im just gonna hang with what I got for awhile. Nothing is yet official so who know whats really gonna happen any ways!

same here... side by sides are in their infancy... i bet the future for us Rhino 660 owners is going to be engine swaps that will be much faster than some of the future side x sides coming out.

So you guys know my rhino. How much do you think it's worth with the +3 kit and everything? I'm not selling really but I'm curious what my loss would be and if it would be enough to start over with a 880 rhino.

When the 880 is official the loss will go up I bet.

DONT buy the SCF kit!!!

This is what a customer had to do in order to install the kit...

And I quote...

"Ditto Love my kit but was a beeeootch to put in. The rear arms were off about a 1/8 had to grind the inner sides of the the top and bottom arm bushings down a 1/16 on each side so they would slide into the channels!! and I have the kings but same issue the tolerance of the lower shock mount is so snug I had to shave a little off the spacer as well."


How retarded!!! If you have to grind a brand new kit to fit your Rhino there is a HUGE problem with that kit. Stick with Rhino Mafia, LSR, or Masons... End of story...

Metal bends a bit when it is welded. All a arms should be built in a jig of some sort. Dont remove the arm from the jug until it has cooled. Then test fit your product to a mock up chassis!!!

I doubt they are test fitting there product or even checking the tolerances. JMO

I would guess around 20k without the shiit tickets.
You could get another 2 bucks if you included them
