PRODUCT SAFETY WARNING
Read before installation!!
Installation of suspension lift kits will raise the center of gravity. For this
reason, Gorilla Axle Inc. strongly urges that extreme caution is used when
encountering potentially hazardous driving conditions such as hill climbs, side
hills, or traversing deep ruts and mud pits. Also, the driver’s field of vision and
judgment will not be as good due to the elevated ride height. The installation
of larger diameter tires will cause the speedometer to read slower than the
actual true ground speed in addition to affecting braking performance which
may alter the predicted stopping distance needed.
It is the owner’s
responsibility to caution and warn any potential driver of the vehicle about these
driving and handling conditions. Wider tires and wheels are suggested to help
accommodate the lifted ATV/RUV and offer more stability. Gorilla Axle Inc.
strongly recommends the use of helmets AT ALL TIMES. It is strongly
suggested that a qualified professional mechanic install all Gorilla Products as to
insure correct installation. Do not add, alter, or fabricate any factory or
aftermarket products to add height to the intended lift of the Gorilla Lift Kit.
Doing this could result in product malfunction, injury, death or loss of warranty.
Do not jump or exceed speeds over 25mph. Gorilla Axle Inc. will not be held
liable or responsible for damages or personal injuries resulting from the use of
lifted ATVs, altered products, improper installation, or improper use of lifted
ATVs. Review your parts list for missing or damaged parts. Please call us at
318.345.8186 with any questions concerning product design, function, or the
correct usage.
When possible, keep all bolts uniform for a clean appearance.
DO NOT TIGHTEN ANY BOLTS UNTIL INSTALL ON LIFT IS COMPLETE.
