Smile Jack-it suspension lift kits

Hello,

I have just picked up a 1992 4.0L v6 5 speed Ranger. I plan to lift it soon, I've seen they have a 8" suspension lift kit for it on jack-it.com. I would like to hear how good of a site they are. Would a 8" lift be to big for my ranger. btw I'm only going as big as 35" tires not 36" like it says it clears.

Thanks for your time,
TheBigJen

FYI don't paste jack-it.com into your address bar and hit enter, it's not work friendly! The site is called Jack-It .. but the URL is http://www.jackit.com/.

I think Skyjacker makes what you are looking for.

I would go with 4.88's probably.

Skyjacker doesn't have 6" lifts for my 2000 Ranger

Superlift only goes to 4" as well.... I'm wanting a 6" Suspension lift, or do you think I could get away with a 4" suspension lift for 35x12.5 Tires?

Hoping to make it much better than stock!

35's wont work too well with only 4" of lift. you could always do the superlift and then a body lift too and you can fit 35's no problem

Yeah, that's what I was meaning, if a 4" sus lift would do the trick with a body lift....

I guess I forgot that part LOL Thnx
