Two of the most asked questions on the Internet lately have been “What’s the largest and or tallest tire that will fit on the 2016 Honda Pioneer 1000 & 1000-5 without a lift kit” and “When will the aftermarket parts companies release a lift kit for the Pioneer 1000 & 1000-5?”.

Pioneer 1000 Arched A-Arms / Control Arms

The largest tire you can squeeze on a Pioneer 1000 without a lift kit is between 29″ and 30″ dependent on how large the lugs are as well as to how true the tires are to size. Many people on some of the Honda Pioneer side by side forums have tried wedging different brands / sizes etc as it’s all trial and error since the 1000 has only been in customers hands for a couple months now. It’s not so much the height where we run into clearance problems but where the tire hits the fender-well. That’s where the upside of forward control arms comes into play as well as being arched.

High Lifter as well as many other aftermarket part companies have been hard at work trying to get new suspension, performance parts, etc to market for the Pioneer 1000 and with good reason as they are flying off dealers floors. That and the side by side / UTV market is one of the largest when it comes to people that like to modify their new rides.

High Lifter has let the cat out of the bag and has released control arms / arched a-arms as well as a lift kit for the 2016 Pioneer 1000. The Pioneer 1000 a-arms below allow you to run 30″ tires on your Pioneer 1000 & 1000-5 without having to run a lift kit.

Pioneer 1000 Arched A-Arms  (Control Arms) Update

High Lifter Pioneer 1000 & 1000-5 A-Arm info:

Max Clearance Front Forward Upper & Lower Control Arms Honda Pioneer 1000:

We maximized ground clearance by strategically arching the lower control arm in two locations and followed the angle of the axle for maximum clearance and visual appeal. Our high-precision manufacturing process ensures each control arm bolts on exactly like the factory arm. You can run a 30″ tire on your Pioneer 1000 without a lift, with these Front Forward Arms installed. Best of all, this kit works with our 2″ lift kit! Add the lift and front forward arms to run 31″ tires.

The Max Clearance Front Forward Upper & Lower Control Arms move the front hubs forward 1.5 inches for clearance without lifting the ride or increasing the center of gravity. The upper and lower control arms are crafted from heavy-duty 1.25” steel tubing and powder-coated in stock Honda black. These arms allow you to run 30″ tires without a lift.

The upper control arms have the High Lifter logo precision cut into the bracing so fellow riders know you mean business when it comes to heavy-duty accessories for your Pioneer. During installation, you’ll use stock bushings and factory ball joints for an easy install!   

Kit Includes:
4 Heavy Duty Control Arms
