Enhance the offroad capability of the Kawasaki Mule with Essex Bigfoot Suspension Lift Kits, they take you through mud or snow and over rocks, ditches and deadfall. They even enhances the 2wd units! [see the testimonial below]

The Essex developed kits add 1 5/8" (or 3 to 3½" w/ Surefoot tires) of lift, improved traction and stability that allows you to take on rugged terrain that stopped you before. Our springs are 40% stronger than stock Mule springs (90% for cab models). These kits are essential for increased clearance, better ride and handling. Together with our line of SureFoot Kevlar belted tires you will have the best combination of clearance, puncture resistance, payload, stability and run-flat protection available.

Note
Essex Lift Kits are included in the SureFoot Tire Kits and are not sold separatly.
 
 




Essex Replacement Springs keep the nose of the Kawasaki Mule up and improve the ride and handling. This allows you to carry more sizeable loads in rough terrain without bogging down the Mule. Together the springs and Essex lift blocks provide 2" of additional front clearance and accommodate oversize tires. The easy-to-install kit retains the full movement of the strut and does not alter the camber angle. The extended rear shackles stiffen the leaf springs to improve clearance for the rear tires.

There are two spring gauges to choose from: the "S" is designed for a stock Mule and the "C" is designed to accomodate the extra weight of a cab and/or snowplow. All tire kits include springs, lift blocks and your choice of Bigfoot Tires mounted on 12x7 ITP steel wheels. Silver of Black steel wheels are standard and Magnum or Cast Aluminum wheels are optional.






   
 
 
  Kevlar-Belted SureFoot Tires
A necessary companion to the Essex Lift Kit
*Some Essex SureFoot Tire Kits  require an Essex Lift Kit.
 
 
   
This is not another ATV balloon tire! With bulletproof Kevlar belted runflat performance and sidewall reinforcement, SureFoot tires will take you where you want to go...and bring you home again.

Essex Bigfoot Lift Kits & SureFoot tires add ground clearance, improved traction and stability allowing you to take on rugged terrain that stopped you before. Essex developed the 1,190 lb rated tire for today's heavier ATVs and loaded Utitlity Vehicles. Chose 25, 26, or 27 inch.
 
 
 
  Why choose Essex SureFoot tires?
 
 
Today's bigger 4 wheelers and Utility Vehicles require tires that carry more load and resist punctures better. Typical ATV tires are low pressure balloon tires with soft sidewalls for comfortable riding. They need to be overinflated, and aren't stable on side hills. In addition, heavy weight loads common to UTV's today make them more vulnerable to punctures. We have designed tires especially for these increased loads. With reinforced sidewall stability and Kevlar-belted "bulletproof" runflat puncture protection....Essex's "Surefoot" brand is made specifically for todays heavily laden Utility Quads and dressed 500+cc ATV's - to... Take you where you want to go; and Bring you Back!

  An unsolicited message from Bob Gregor of Bellingham, WA.  
 
 
 
  “I got the  lift kit and tires on my Mule and am very satisfied with your product. I am absolutely amazed at the difference in the machine. I mentioned to you how disappointed I was with the 2wd Mule. Any kind of mud or wet uphills and I would stick it right now. You said that 4wd wasn’t really necessary but I thought perhaps that was just a bit of salesmanship. Went out yesterday for the first time after the kit was on just to see. We have had a bit of rain lately and it is pretty muddy. Went to the place where I usually get stuck the easiest and went thru without a problem. Then spent the next hour looking for the steepest. muddiest stuff I have and I never could get stuck. On the really steep stuff I used the diff lock and I never even broke thru the grass. Went places that I would never try my 4wd tractor even when it is dry. I am very, very pleased with the result. Totally different machine. My kids say it looks cool too. Thanks again for your product. I really like what it has done to the Mule. ”
