WELCOME aboard,great site,great members,as for as your tires anything 8 ply will give you a very stout side wall tire,If you go to six ply I like the BigHorns,lot of guys like the 2.0 because there lighter,I like the orig BigHorns myself.If you go to longer a-arms can you still use your shocks.

Welcome as far as fair price I dont think you can use that term when buying parts for a UTV.

I agree with Joe, I don't think you can find anything for these for a fair price... I've browsed before for some longer travel a-arm kits, and I couldn't find anything that was affordable. This might be complete kits with shocks and all (can't remember) but everything was at least $3000 plus.... I don't get it, I purchases extended a-arms for my sport atv a while back and I think the kit cost me in the ballpark of $500. UTV stuff is the same thing, just a little more stout. So I don't see why so much more money... I think just because it says UTV like Joe said....

As stated above, anything related to UTV performance (or even general parts) are generally marked up pretty high. There are ZERO budget long travel kits out there. As de3 stated, you can't beat the original Maxxis Bighorns for longevity and durability. BTW, welcome to the site (best Prowler forum out there!).

Pit Bull Rocker Uber tires also .. but don't know how tall they get as I run a "stock" 26.5 size .. they are 8 ply.

the only other tire I would run is the original Big Horn's [but that's just me]

Hey Mike .. you sure 'bout being able to use stock shocks on a lift kit ????

welcome to the site as said before good helpful dudes around these parts.

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

Iam not sure about using stock shocks with lift kit I think there is guys that do,but I dont think stock shocks will work with long travel.

Judging by the lugs, I'd say the Grim Reapers would last longer than the Bounty Hunters.
