Hey Sam, Yea thats the kinda thing i want, it all just seems like a hell of of a lot of money, that website is quoting like 1094 for a bodylift for the ranger!

They have shackle lift kits that raise it about 1.5", just need to try and find out what the hell that is, that looks like a cheaper option for me
They work out at 90 a pair and 35 for fitting it, so it can't be a big job!

Seems like a crap load of money for that, at this rate i might just have to keep it stock, thats way to much money for me!

Ok I've decided what I'm gonna go for now, and its this:

Shackles on the rear 1.5" lift approx
Torsion bar crank on front 1.5" Lift approx
40mm Body Lift (1.5" lift approx)

Overall thats 3" lift in total

Then I might as well go for the 32/11.5/15's instead of the 31/10.5/15's

I will see how that looks before maybe going for a 30mm wheel spacer to give it a wider stance.

I reckon that will look pretty good??

My wheel is 29" stock at the moment so overall with 32's on, that should actually sit just over 4" higher.

Price will be about 700 all in which is pretty bloody good i think!

Opinions??

Should look good and also drive well with the taller tires as this ranger is too low geared anyway. You should start a thread in the exterior mod section when you get started.

I will mate, will take plenty of pics too to try and help anyone else that has a similar goal, will start it all pretty soon i reckon, also have some great ideas for the decals too, gonna remove all the wildtrak stuff, and get something made up, nothing to in your face but something to give it a proper US meaty look.
