Not sure on the lift , batteries and wires yes ....what year and shape are your batteries ? Thicker cables will help (you probably should already have them with the larger tires and lift) if you don't have one , get a descent digital volt meter so you can check the pack voltage and check each battery individually if needed...its best imo to get one on the dash to so you can see voltage while driving and charging or so you don't run them down too low...batteries are EVERYTHING on these carts...well almost everything...

My batteries are almost 2 years old i had one go bad right after i got it. it would show 8.5 volts but as soon as it got under load it would drop down to like 3 volts so i replaced it now and no problems. so i got 5 that are almost 2 years old and 1 that is new. what kind of guage you mean on the dash. What is average volt drop when taking off from a dead stop?

Welcome morgaler. Post the first half of the serial number so the guys will know what you have under the hood. Then let us know how you intend to use her. On-road, off-road, speed buggie, torque for hills, etc. The suggestions will then be tailored to your desires.

You've tapped into a great knowledge base and the natives are friendly.

Its just a little square volt meter that you mount in the dash and wire to the pack ...my cart is 36 volts so 39 volts after charge ...I think it drops down 1 or 2...and maybe as much as 3 or 4 on a hill....but mine is an older resistor cart so I cant really weigh in on yours...

An in dash meter is helpful when charging and driving I see mine go to 45 or 46 at starting to move and then it comes on back up. Just put new batteries in and 4 GA cables so I will have to see if the drop is still that much.

Does bigger cables really help that much? and where can i get a set at? how do you wire that volt guage so it comes on and off or does it stay on all the time? What about that battery meter how accurate is it?
