No different than other of these others owners of 98 & newer 4WD Rangers - it's a dead market.

Another favorite 'copy & paste' response of mine.

Since you are 4WD - you only have the following general options when it comes to lifting your truck:
  1. 1"-2" Torsion Bar Crank = Cost is only an alignment.
  2. 2" Leveling Kit (AKA - Torsion Keys) = Waste of money, same as a torsion bar crank - see option #1 above.
  3. 3" Body Lift (Performance Accessories or Summit Brand) = +/- $200 + Install
  4. 4" Superlift = +/- $2,000 + Install
  5. Custom SAS = "Let your imagination take control of your wallet"
Pick your poison.

If you don't think the torsion bar crank will get you where you want to be & don't want to spend the $$$ for a Superlift - then slap on a body lift with larger tires & call it day - that's what the majority do.

Rear is the simple part....shackles, AAL or new leaf springs are the "popular" choices.

You can either body lift it to save some money or get older model torsion keys from a '08 and older model Ranger to lift the front. For the rear you can do shackles, AAL or blocks, whatever you choose. Really depends on how high you want to lift it.

I don't think you understood. He's not saying buy an older truck but to get the torsion keys from an older truck 08 and back. The 08- sit 2" higher up front from the factory
