Question Has anyone done a hockey puck lift?

I'm thinking about doing a 3in body with hockey pucks cause im on a extremely tight budget. Has anyone ever done it? Is it safe?

Most people on here are goin to bash you pretty bad for considereing a hockey puck lift. I personally would never do it not designed like the body lift is and all around doesnt seem safe to me. Just save up the cash and do it right when you can afford the $200 for the 3" body lift.

If you cant afford to do it right dont do it at all. Body lift kits are cheap, start saving your money.

Why the hell.....

No.

Get the kit and do it the correct and SAFE way.

You got $200? All you will need at the most is another $100.

If your on that tight of a budget, don't do it.

Priorities..

I have never done it on rangers but it's a tried and true budget boost in the jeep world...
It didn't last very long maybe a yr or two but it's just a safe as another body lift

NO NO NO i did a few mud rig and it only good for that
