I recently brought home a 2017 Rancher 4x4 for the wife to follow me around on. She really likes it so far but I have a few issues.

The factory tires are ... less than satisfactory imo. Can I go up an inch or 2 in tire size without hurting the torque too much?

I'd also like a little more coverage on the front bumper. I've looked at a few Moose bumpers and a Bison that I liked, any recommendations?

Will doing either of the above mentioned add on's cause warranty issues?

Any other recommended modifications? We ride a lot of wooded, often muddy trails.

I hear strong made brand bumpers are good ?, but never have used them. as for voiding your warranty ?, well..i'll make this simple, BEFORE you take it in for warranty work, remove the after market wheels, and slap the oem factory wheels back on it. this way, they can't say those after market wheels tore your atv up, and not be covered under warranty. second..do not..i repeat..DO NOT INSTALL A SNORKEL KIT ON IT WHAT SO EVER WHILE UNDER WARRANTY !. they deff won't cover anything if they see you have this on it !!. last but not least, over size tires are not what kills your atv, IT'S THOSE DANG LARGE LUGS ON THEM !. I won't get into tires here, as everyone will have their likes and brands, soo..with that said..if your gonna play ?, then your gonna pay !. I run stock size tires on all my atvs, I use ITP MUDLITE AT'S, love them, this is what I use, you how ever, can only decide what you want :).

There’s a thread on moose bumpers just recently, they look smart IMO. Tyres, you’d be fine running 26’s don’t go to aggressive with tread pattern, mudlites seem a popular choice and I hear there a good tyre overall. Bearclaws are also a good all round tyre. If you plan on a more aggressive tread pattern I’d come down a size and opt for 25’s.
Warranty, I’d ask about bumpers, they may be perfectly fine and not cause any void issues, tyres on the other hand will if you go above stock size or factory recommendations.

I have never seen the Strong Made bumpers yet , just recently got a set of floor boards from them , and they are very nicely built and painted for a great price, it was one day shipping for me as I live in Louisiana , they also go by the name Savant Mfg when searching thier products

Savant makes Strong Made?? Did not know that. I’ve got one of their front baskets and really like it. Very well built
