Gorilla lift for Sportsman 500

Im looking at getting a gorilla lift for the 98-04 style sportsman. I have a few questions about it and was hoping some of you on here are running this lift. Im looking at the six inch lift. What is it about the lift that makes Gorilla warn against trail riding? Id like to have the six inch lift set up with about two inches of sag. Im not looking for a monster truck. Is there any adjustability to the kit? Im really only looking for 3-4 inch lift but I dont want the positive camber they offer. This is why Im looking at the 6 inch and possibly adjust it down if possible.

I found these pics online of a sportsman and it looks very good. Im not sure what lift it is but Im looking for something like it. CV angles dont look too bad and there appears to be no positive camber. Anybody know whos atv this is?

I might suggest that you get on rubberdowncustoms.com and ask what your wanting to know. I'm sure they can help you. I just put a 1 1/2" lift on my bike and I think that maybe 2" might be the limit for trail riding. Just my $.02
