Ok I am in the process of putting a second snorkle on my brute today when i noticed the front long bracket was bent.. I will post pics tomorrow. I wonder what the warranty is on it?? I have always liked this lift better than others, I'm not knocking it, cause I do ride pretty hard.. I see a 4 inch lift in my future...


The top bracket is the new one xpatv sent me and the bottom is obviously the bent one.. The new bracket does not appear to made of any differently.. If it bends again I will modify it myself..

the design of the lift looks nice but its no where near as strong as the design of the HL lift.

several people have reported bending the front brackets.

be sure to post the pics because I'd like to see it myself.

Here ya go.. I really like this lift, the front bracket just needs to be a little bit beefier.. I will be calling them tomorrow.. I prolly wont even put the bracket on, just save it for the next buyer of it.. I plan on getting a 4 inch catvos in the summer..

I would just keep an eye on it.. I have jumped mine hard and a lot of wheelies... I still would recommend it to anyone...

I wonder if thick zip ties would remedy that problem?
They make them in 150lb +
i bet it would strapping that bracket to that brace it runs along..
3 right in the middle, 2 on the ends and 1 on each side between the end on the 3 in the middle.

I was thinking the same thing, but more along the lines of baling wire... :rockn:

think you can get it as tight and snug fitting?

another good one.
Im sure any of these proposed fixes will be good enough to keep it from bowing out in the middle like that.

about 1/4 in wide. they'll hold it for sure.

Hide what you need so you have to look at all the other stuff while yer looking for it.
