It looks like you have a solid build plan there. I would double check about the wheel diameter being compatible with the lift just to be safe before you order tires. A phone call to Jake's should give the answer to that question. Good luck with your build and show us some pics!

You can get any information on anything you need to do to your cart HERE, there are plenty of people that have installed any part that you can even imagine right here on Buggies Gone Wild and will be glad to help. I don't know anything about Extremists though. lol

Well I hope the next stupidest thing you build is a lifted cart!

Now that would be extreme...

Some of the Jakes don't take 8" wheels, if you do get 8" make sure you get the kind dished on the back side to clear brake drums on carts. You can get 10" and avoid that problem, for that matter you can find some alloy wheels for not much more than steel. They look way better, no paint or rust, and make a cart look a lot nicer and better resale. Certain alloys, not the fancy ones lol.

I'd recommend you get some ATV rated 22s with an aggressive tread and you can go a lot of places you didn't think you could. The ATV tires are far more puncture resistant and stronger sidewalls, I've seen sticks poke holes in non-ATV tires.

Bu is not that personable, and this forum was started because Bu was like the cart nazis you could only talk about their stuff. But now they been bought out and turned into more of a online store they are not like they once were, which back then was not that bad in spite of the terrible forum rules making the forum suck. I'm not going to potty mouth them whatever the case and don't like seeing it, but others are way more into the custom stuff done here and have no problem competing, and some of them are a lot more USA than Bu is, have actual people behind them doing the stuff and innovating helpful products like the CPP clutch adapter. You can shoe a $250 15hp clone into a cart with a $50 adapter, all you have to do is exhaust/cables/wiring and engine mount. $300 leaves a lot of room to buy exhaust parts and other odds and ends. For the real DIY or fabricator it does not get any cheaper than that and the power is way more than stock. Not saying it is easy, it takes a while lol, at least in a G9 it does as its a tight fit.

Far as a lift, I think most lifts will work ok for putting around off road. Get a lift that fits 22s IMO, the selection of tires is much better and larger tire rolls over stuff better. I can drive over bare RR tracks and telephone poles or tree trunks that size on the ground. A better lift like a high travel will ride nicer, it will be much nicer at speed off road. A cheap lift will not like to go faster on rough ground, but is ok if you take your time. Also note the width you end up with, even with a cheap lift its a very good idea to get offset wheels to make the cart wider. High travel lifts usually have a wider front to them and you can run spacers on the rear if you want.

your suspension ideas sound good. i just swapped out a 5" drop axle for a long travel, and i can tell you there is a world of difference in the ride. good luck!
i think you will be better off with 10" wheels tho, cause at some point you might want disc brakes and you will need at least that size.
