Im just using it for work around the farm and trail riding. im currently looking to put on 28 inch tires and body lift if needed.Some report getting away with OEM axles, some break them with 2" lifts. Just depends what you're doing with your Kodiak, torque put on the axles because of your specific (mud) areas you are riding, your riding style and tires you are spinning.
Take a look at the angle your axles are already on then picture where that angle will be with a two inch lift. There a lots of people running 28's on the Kodiak 700 with no lift. I have 27's and there is lots of room for a 28.why would I need axles? a 2 inch lift cause that much strain on the units?
