Applicability: 2016-21 Can Am Defender and Defender Max

We all know your Can-Am has enough horsepower and torque to take on any terrain and any task. However, sometimes duty calls when the vehicle needs some adjustments in the gear department. When that time comes, get outfitted with the High Lifter Dual Idler 4 Inch Portal Gear Lift for the Defender. This assembly brings a whole new meaning to the word upgrade, with massive benefits ranging from performance to the machine structure.

The UTV portal gear lift comes with everything you could imagine to make this integration from the gearbox to the rotor right down to the backing plate and gaskets. Each unit is constructed from the finest materials with unique design elements. For instance, the gasket is made out of Kevlar. The backing plate is steel with bent flanges and questionably one of the strongest available. What really sets this side-by-side portal gear lift from the rest is the dual idler gears spread with twice as many teeth. We could sit here all day and tell you what it comes with and how it's made, but we know you want to know what's good. Here goes.

In a nutshell, the Defender portal gear lift gives you four-inches of that beloved ground clearance with the right kind of power and torque to handle the tough stuff. Crawling or doing those extra heavy loads will be child's play once this aftermarket hard part kit is mounted up to your buggy. You'll be the talk of the roady crew for sure. We know there's a lot, so be sure to ask questions. Give us a call or shoot us an email, Side By Side Stuff has you back.
