Larger diameter rear tires is the only way to gain clearance between the trans and the ground.

Don't know what model/transaxle you have, but can't see "flipping it" as being an option. Like Ron said, larger wheels/tires will help alittle. May want to buy or build a transaxle case skid plate. Would be really good insurance for any possible damage.

I was going to weld a tube on top of the frame, then cut that bottom tube off and build a diff guard....but after running it a lot on trails I hardly ever had an issue with it like it is stock. Given I have mostly wooded areas here and figure its not a mudder no matter what height the diff is at. I may reconsider when I get the clone motor in it though.

Kinda agree with chvy, it's low and ugly, but I do run in the rocks, and I've never had it hit anything yet so I guess it's just gona be ugly.
