You should create a signature with information about your truck...

You'll try to make a signature? It's not that difficult, click here: http://www.fordrangerforum.com/profi...=editsignature

In that box, type in something like what you see everyone else in this forum has in their signature... Year / Make / Model / Drivetrain / Engine / etc.

Ummm.... really?! If you want it to look like a beast then you need to lift the piss outta it... won't look like a beast being just leveled... but it will look sexy... I think... since I don't know what your truck looks like I cant guarantee results... haha

Whenever you can upload pics, that will definitely help us get ideas.

Is it an XL, an XLT, or Edge?


Reason we're being so difficult is we can't read your mind....we aren't looking at your truck outside our window to determine what suspension you have under it. You havn't posted pics of it for us. There's coil spring 2wd Rangers and there's torsion bar 2wd Rangers. Totally different ways of suspending the truck and no parts are interchangeable between the two....so your options are pretty much stuck to whatever you've got under the truck.




"How much to lift" Are you asking how much lift should be under your truck? OR how much money to lift your truck?
