DESCRIPTION

If you're looking to take your Can-Am Defender to the next level, look no further than Thumper Fab's Long Travel Kit. This Long Travel Kit provides greatly improved suspension geometry, larger tire clearance, and improved ride quality. Perfect for extreme trails and provide unmatched performance regardless of the terrain. Strength. Style. Great Ride! 

 

Why a boxed A-Arm design? 
A boxed arm will give you increased torsional strength for the strongest control arm design possible. There is more to a Thumper Fab boxed control arm than meets the eye. Underneath the steel cladding is a skeleton design that adds strength exactly where you need it and saves weight. Strength is important but unnecessary weight increases your unsprung mass and reduces your shock’s ability to compensate. The Thumper Fab design adds strength and reduces weight for optimal ride quality.  

 



SHOCK OPTIONS

 

ZBROZ EXIT COILOVER SHOCKS

Zbroz X1 Series EXIT Shocks take your ride to the next level of driving performance. Whether it’s racing through the mountain trails, high speed desert rally action or those challenging rock crawling lines, the X1 Series Exit Shocks offer easy compression adjustability at the turn of dial and up-to 2" of true suspension lift. MADE IN THE USA! (Must select 3-Seat or Crew Cab option for correct sizing) 

 

OEM SHOCKS

When this option is selected, you can reuse your OEM shocks. You will still benefit in overall ride quality with your Long Travel Kit. You can always upgrade to our custom tuned ZBROZ EXIT Coilover Shocks at anytime.  
 



EASY INSTALLATION

We offer professionally installed bushings and ball joints for easy installation. When you select the options below, we take the hassle out of pressing in your bushings and ball joints yourself. Utilizing our precision press operation, we are able to ensure your bushings and ball joints are correctly installed and not hammered or pressed in a way that would reduce their quality and lifespan.  

 

  • OEM Bushings
    – We offer OEM bushings for a high level of quality, vibration, and harshness control.
  • OEM Ball Joints
    – We do not recommend OEM ball joints for this kit. Our kit does allow you to reuse your stock ball joints but we recommend Uniball or Keller for extreme use.
  • Uniball Ball Joints
    – Our uniball bearing replaces the use of a ball joint for extreme levels of performance and strength. Commonly used in harsh racing conditions. Our patent pending control arm design allows you to run either a uniball or a ball joint for your desired use!
  • TF ELITE Ball Joints
    – Keller Performance Products is very well known for the strongest UTV ball joint in the industry! Keller utilizes the best materials, hardened body and stem built from American made 4340 and hardened for maximum strength and wear resistance. Adjustable and greaseable with a replicable boot. Lifetime Warranty.
  • Reuse bushings and ball joints – You also have the option to reuse your OEM bushings and ball joints. Maybe your Ranger is brand new or in great shape. Our patent pending control arms allow the choice to reuse your OEM hardware. We do recommend professional installation and the use of a press to ensure your original equipment can be removed and installed without damage.



AXLE OPTIONS

Complete Axle Replacement
We make it EASY to install this entire kit! We provide complete Cobra Axle replacement axles with inner and outer CVs that come fully assembled. Both of these axles are COMPLETE with no need to disassemble and reassemble your OEM axles with longer bars.
