Id like to put a 2-3 inch lift under my foreman. My dad says it will ruin its handeling and such. Does anyone argee? Disagree?

its not going to hurt the handling that much might make it a little more top heavy on angled inclines.

If it's 4X4 you may put more strain on the Axles other than that I agree with red and 69quadracer

more than anything you put the cv shafts in a bind especially with bigger tires you see mroe ppl breaking cv shafts with lifts because of the purpose, if you put a lift oyu usualy have to get more heavy duty cv shafts and such sometimes its better to just stay stock get a bigger tire that fits stock setup and you will have less trouble in long run. this isnt a bad 1 if you want im still considering it for my 300 fourtrax

Raise the center of gravity and double the horsepower, too?

I'd be sure you have good health insurance. Trust me, my last accident is pushing $25,000 and counting, and that was on a stock ATV. ;)

26's for sure. 27's would probably rub.

I have 26's on mine. Anything larger looks like it wouldn't take much of a bump for the tires to hit and rub the plastic. And when it gets COLD out, that plastic seems to want to break more than give.

If it's an agressive look you want? There are many wild looking rims on the market for your Foreman. And with the right combination of wheels and tires... Your Foreman would look great without loosing any handleing or making the center of gravity higher than it already is.

aright all yall hatin on the lift...you can run anytire you want mayb 28 but you will need to do some trimming on the fenders...on my rancher i took the fenders off an i hav a 2in lift and i can clear alot of tires its just my floorboards

the only accidents i hav had on my 4wheeler are from me tryin to come out of creeks at places that are too steep too fast an tips em over, the 2in lift is really that big of a deal when it comes to center gravity crap
