If you are looking for LT (Long Travel) for your Can Am Commander this is a great place to look at what is out there.

I found 12 LT kits for the Commander that you can buy today. I did not put this in any order just the way they ended up.

Here is a list of all the LT (Long Travel) kits that are currently out for the Can Am Commander. At least this is all the kits I could find information on. Please add any others that you know of or even any information I might have wrong.

For a great look at how to install a Long Travel kit, take a look at the Youtube videos under HCR by DirtTraxTV (Number 7 on my list) on the Can-Am Commander Build-Up Project Part 3, 4, and 5.

I found this information from a number web sites and this information may not all be correct so please contact the seller to confirm any and all information. Prices are what I found listed in one place or another, in many cases you might get the kit for less than listed.
This information was put together on November 1, 2011

Here are some random video's that show what stock and LT kits can do.

My Commander XT all stock except 2” wheel spacers (FactoryUTV)

Stock
Can Am Commander Jumping - YouTube


Another Stock Commander X, jumping and driving.




Torsional Trailing arm Independent (TTI) rear suspension with external sway bar - YouTube

Double A-arm front suspension with dive-control geometry - YouTube

And here is what Long Travel looks like.
Sorry don’t know who made this LT kit.

This video is Pro Armor with LT by Custom Creations in Highland, CA. I could not find any info on this LT kit, just the video.
