I had a chance to go ride with HCR Racing and their fleet of long traveled UTVs and they really do a nice job of soaking up the small bumps, yet handle the large jumps just as well. They make the following kits:
- Rhino Long Travel Kits
- RZR Long Travel Kits
- Teryx Long Travel Kits
- Prowler Long Travel Kits
Here's a short video, and there will be a much longer in depth video showing exactly how well they work shortly:

when and where do we get bigred long travel kits
It would be nice but I wouldn't hold you breath on that one. WIth the Big Red being 10" wider then a Teryx or Rhino and 4" wider then a Ranger I doubt there will be a huge call for a wider long travel kit for the Big Red.
Just not a machine that will have a lot of those types of mods out for it. Sad but probably true. Hope I'm wrong but...
Also, the Big Red is already too wide to drive on some trails, in the lower 48, so why would people want to make it even wider? Maybe dune runners but I doubt that the Big Red is really going to appeal to that crowd.
