Down south, High Lifter is known
as the leader in aftermarket ATV
components for mud riders and more.
In fact, with their highly acclaimed
High Lifter Mud Nationals series, the
folks from Shreveport, Louisiana, are
trying to expand their customer base
as well as their product line across
the country and around the world. As
far as axle components, High Lifter
only sells complete axles and have
products for most Polaris and Can-Am models, as well as popular
High Lifter boot kit
Kawasaki and Yamaha machines.
What sets High Lifter’s Outlaw DHT
axles apart from other competitors is
the dual heat-treating process each
axle goes through. They target the
key components of the joints and the
housings to improve toughness
against shock loads without compromising bearing surfaces and long-term life. High Lifter housings, cages
and bars are made from 4340 chromoly steel, and their puncture-resis-tant boots are crafted from premium-grade thermoplastic polyester elastomers. High Lifer claims this material is superior to rubber boots found in
other aftermarket axles, as it provides
protection from fatigue, wear, and
remains durable in high- or low-tem-perature climates. High Lifter DHT
axles range from $279.95–$309.95 and
come with a one-year warranty.
Accessories include boot kits ($25.95)
designed for High Lifter axles and a
special DHT CV boot banding tool
($61.95), and a steering stop kit for
Polaris models that helps prevent
axle breakage ($17.95).

is, that’s all right, they are only one of
the largest aftermarket companies

maneuverability. They carry complete
