Default 4WD Long Travel

Ok, I bought an 06 FX4 Off Road Ranger, and I intend on turning it into a Pre-Runner style truck.

Ive been looking over front Long Travel suspensions for Rangers and Ive noticed they are predominantly made for 2WD. I know that as a rule, Pre-Runners tend to be 2WD anyways, but I want to keep my 4WD.

I know that there one 4WD long travel kit, cant recall the company that makes it, but there has to be more than that. I know that with Tacoma's, a similiar truck, there seemed to be an equal offering of 2wd and 4wd long travel.

Is there any particular reason with the Rangers arent the same?

Ah ha, thank you, that is the "only 4wd long travel kit" that i had mentioned. Was just too lazy and in a hurry earlier to find the link and company name.

I believe that kit would work on my truck, but I was hoping for variety/competition in this market. I know for sure im going to talk with a local shop to see what they know is available for the Ranger, and if they can fab something reliable up themselves.
