Default Saw a lifted ranger today

I saw the same exact truck as mine and his was around 3" taller. He said he had a body lift and 33's. He also said he had add a leaf springs in the back. What are they? I told him about FRF too!

They are leaf springs.

You add some for more height

I've seen quite a few Rangers lately. saw a real nice one yesterday. I think it was probabably a 2009ish. But it was enough to druel over.

How hard are they to install? And how do you raise the front ?

some times you might need new shocks though. a cheap way to do the front is to key it. we just did my buddy's and he had to replace all his shocks.

I got aftermarket keys which added about 3", you can adjust your factory ones also and get a little more height. I also have a 3" body lift, and just had the 4" suspension lift from Superlift put on. Top Gun Customz made me some 5" angled blocks for the rear and I added 2" hangers for the leaf springs to give it a little bit of a rake.

The add a leaf is easy as hell, took me about an hour and a half to do both sides, but unless you do something in the front, its just gonna look like you need a leveling kit, bit i dont mind for now.
