why just 1"? I dont think that would really make much of a difference unless you need it for some clearance. And if that why not go a little higher?

Even of they made one it would be a waste of money IMO. there are other things you can do to gain 1 inch that are not a "kit". Cheapest route would be shackle/block the back and crank the T bars in the front.

There is always hockey pucks...

I'm inclined to believe this is a trick question.

I know Brad knows better than this.

Actually in all fairness, I was looking at maybe a one to two inch BL if I do a super lift so I can keep it low but still run 35s.

Ha well I figure 4 inch lift will get 33s stuffed just fine, but I want 35s without looking top heavy, and keeping the center of gravity low.

No. This is a serious question.

I dont plan on running anything larger than the 32/11.5/15.
but with the weight of my plow in the front i dont think #1 torsion bars will be enough. Afterall, my 32s rub now w my B codes cranked up

jeez come on guys you all should know more than this dang. Yes you can get a 1 inch bl either from performance accessories website if they are still offering it or off ebay. They used to offer the blocks off their website and you just have to supply the bolts n washers for them which isnt hard. Send me a PM and ill tell ya something else that might help ya. I Just got off work and about to take a shower but ill come back an edit this with more info for it.

EDIT: yes STL is right I just checked n PA doesnt offer it anymore but you can still get the blocks off ebay for it, just make sure you get 1x3 blocks

Isn't there a write up on one of the ranger sites that explains pretty much everything you would need? I can't remember.
