Desertcat has done one for the rear of his Prowler. I am sure he will chime in with some pros and cons.

I have a Highlifter, 2" for a 650 prowler. I bought it because someone told me it would fit my 1000, but needless to say...It would not be put together right. I don't want to jeapordize my warranty yet. I'm willing to sell it.

I bought a kit for the 650 and 700 from extreme products and it is the snap on of lift kits. I am possibly in the market to see the kit if your interested? I am getting read to remove my rear suspension and do a make over. This kit gives you about 2.5" of lift and make your center ground clearance at least 13". Let me know if you need more info.

A 2.5 lift will put your axles at a bad angle and the will break alot easier. I put the extreme 2.5 on mine last spring with 30" mud lites and I broke 5 axles in 5 trips and that was going easy on it. Also the rear axles really heat up if you go over 30 mph. Mine would get so hot that they would blow the gear oil out the seals.

i think that the 30" ML's are what broke your axles!!!!

i would think the lift and tires can do a lot of damage, that is why i am not completely sold on the idea, i definately will wait till the warranty is out.
thanks all,
tim

I have had zero problems but i am also only running 26" tires. My axles are in good working condition and I have been running this kit for 12 months. Sand dunes, snow, rock crawling you name it.

The big tires helped but i ran them with out the lift and had no problems. Put the lift on and i couldnt make it one trip with out busting a axle. And the hot rear cv's is all the lifts fault. Not saying dont do it just letting you know some of the down side.
