From the factory sites a comparison of the tires for the rear of the grizzly
Stock tires 24.41 high 9.4 wide weight 17lbs
ACT radials in 25 inch size 25.5 high 10.5 wide weight 24.8lbs.
The radials overall are 1.09 inches taller which will give you about 1/2 inch more ground clearance, I dont think you would need a clutch kit, the 26 inch radials are 1.79 inches taller than stock which gives me .895 inches of additional ground clearance, for my style of riding I haven't noticed a real loss of power, besides there is low range for the slow or techinical stuff, it has enough for me, but, I have noticed an increased amount of traction in the dirt. They did correct some of the speedo error that the griz has in stock form. Of course the numbers are subjective, tire inflation and rim width will make a differnce in overall height. So far I am pleased with them.

I LOVE IT!!! CG. you the man. I remember when first posted here with your stock Grizz. You must add something new everyweek! I do like your mounting system for moving the winch to the front and the back! Very cool.

thanks doolin,,, moving the winch to the back made a whole new machine out of it,,, the plate I made to mount it to is real heavy and combined with the warn bumper and the ft. basket and all the other stuff I carry the steering was real heavy,,,, with it on the back it is back to normal and a good wheelie machine,,,,, it will set up in the air now,,,when I got it I bought a little trailer just haul it to the field and back, , now I have also had to mod. the trailer, (had to make it wider),,,,,with the winch on the back I also dont have to get the tow rope out,, Im always hooking on to pull pipe or something to the shop and now I can just freespool a little line out and hook it up,,, lots handier,,,, but I still keep thinking one of these days I will quit wanting to add stuff to it,,,, no one told me it was like haveing a harley,,,,, ,,,, ,,,,, cg

I get jealous seeing all the goodies, whether i want them or not. All I have for my quad is a cargo box, tires, spacers, a plow, and heated grips.

So you made the front and rear winch mounts?
