Some riders are perfectly content with the performance and capabilities of their Polaris Ranger Mid-Size. But for those that want added ride height, reductions in gearing, or increases in torque, Polaris Ranger Mid-Size portal gear lifts are among the best options out there. Unlike traditional spring or bracket lifts, Polaris Ranger Mid-Size portal gear lifts raise your vehicle’s chassis without altering its factory geometry. On many editions of the Polaris Ranger, portals alone can drastically increase the performance of the machine. Add accessories like forward a-arms and 34” tires to your Polaris Ranger Mid-Size portal gear lift, and you’ll be reaping all the benefits that come with 20-25 inches of ground clearance. Companies like SuperATV and High Lifter both make well-built and well-respected portal gear lifts for the Polaris Ranger Mid-Size 570, the Polaris Ranger Mid-Size 900, and the Polaris Ranger Mid-Size 1000, with options that range from 4” portal gear lifts to 6” and even 8” portal gear lifts. Whatever size of Polaris Ranger Mid-Size portals you seek, the perfect set for you can be found right here at Everything Polaris Ranger!
On some editions of the Ranger, you should consider link bars, frame stiffeners, and upgraded ball joints to fully take advantage of your Mid-Size portal gear lift. And if you want to beef up your drivetrain to remove the weak links from the chain, you can also add upgraded differentials and a KB3 driveshaft. Although portal hub boxes for the Polaris Ranger Mid-Size are better for the machine than traditional frame-style lift kits, the extra rider confidence and ability to access areas that would otherwise be out of reach can sometimes lead to damaged parts. Plus, because Polaris Ranger Mid-Size portal gear lifts will increase the width of your UTV by around 8 inches, adding them might limit your riding options to trails without width restrictions. As long as you get the geometry right, upgrade your ball joints, and connect link bars to your portal brackets, the added stress from large 8” Polaris Ranger portal gear lifts is manageable. So fear nothing on the trail but fear itself and upgrade your Mid-Size Ranger with some aftermarket portals from Everything Polaris Ranger!
