There’s just something about riding around in a lifted Can-Am Defender. When you and your passengers are sitting a little taller out on the trails, you feel like you can tackle more challenging terrain that would scare most other riders away. This is why so many riders choose to upgrade their Can-Am Defender with a lift kit. A Can-Am Defender lift kit is hands down one of the best upgrades you can make. Whether it’s a 2” lift kit or a 9” lift kit, giving your Can-Am Defender the gift of extra clearance means you can go further and do more.
UTV aftermarket parts and accessory companies like Battle Armor Designs make great Can-Am Defender lift kits, but even with a bracket lift, you’ll probably want to install wheel spacers to increase stability and lower your Can-Am Defender’s center of gravity. The Catvos 3″ lift has gotten a lot of positive feedback from Can-Am Defender owners. It is made out of thick material with a great fit and finish. You can use the Catvos lift while still running stock axles with no issues, though you’ll find that the benefits of also installing spring spacers and Catvos tie rods are well worth the extra cost. In addition to Catvos and Battle Armor, companies like High Lifter and Rage also make great lifts for the Can-Am Defender. Regarding the former, if you’re running the Can-Am Defender 2” lift kit by High Lifter with larger tires, you may have to crank your shocks all the way up as rubbing is common. But regardless of what lift style you’re after for your Can-Am Defender, you can bet that we here at Everything Can-Am Offroad have everything to meet your needs.
All technicalities aside, a lift kit done right on your Can-Am Defender will not only give you the extra ground clearance you’re after, but it can also turn your Can-Am Defender into an absolute beast looks-wise.

If you’re jealous of your buddy’s life Can-am Defender and considering lifting your own rig, you’ve come to the right place. Here at Everything Can-Am Offroad, we’ve got the best Can-am Defender lift kits including bracket lifts, portal lifts, suspension lifts, and more. If it’s ground clearance you seek, then ground clearance you shall have. With a standard Can-am Defender lift, you change the axle angles, which in turn puts added stress on the other suspension components. Plus, running bigger tires adds weight, and therefore increases the forces on the UTV. Though the gearing is lower and the side-by-side will still be able to turn larger tires, they start stressing the differentials, transmission, and gears with the added weight of the lift and tires. Portal lifts, on the other hand, keep your axle angles the way they came from the factory. Furthermore, with the added gear reduction, they put less stress on diffs and trans, which in turn make your Can-am Defender’s drive train last longer. Every Can-am Defender lift option has both pros and cons. You will lose speed on all setups, and you will lose power with standard lifts — but portals gain it back with the added reduction. You will have to add reinforcements for portal lifts as they add extra stress because of the added width. Components like tie rods and ball joints become vulnerable and your a-arms need to be beefed up swapped out and replaced with aftermarket ones. Each type of lift will be better for different ride styles and terrain types. Many Can-am owners, though, view portals as the most efficient way to go for big heavy tires.
