What tires are you wanting to run? Get the EPI clutch kit with highest stall. I think its extreme?

right now I have 26" vampires. 26x8 front 26x12 rear and I think the rear tires are just draining the power all around. im looking into some 27x9.5 outlaws for next spring but I just want better low end torque

I will suggest clutch it first with the EPI kit. And check your valve clearances, air filter, spark plug, etc to make sure you have a strong running engine.

No I do not know. Check in manual section on here and there should be one for download. I need to do my Ranchers valves soon.

I had a highlifter account but forgot my password and it wont let me make another account so do you possibly know any other way of contacting them?

i had the same question about gear reduction, and i emailed high lifter and they told me that they dont make a gear reduction for the 350, and the other applications they have for the ranchers wont work.i have a 05 350 with 27 inch mud lites and was thinking of doing the same because of the tire height.
