4-5" lift with 32's?!?!? no lol. u can crank your t bars and clear 32's no problem. but if you want to go any higher its either a 2000 dollar suspension lift or a gay body lift
please disregard my 1st post lol. didnt mean to post that

Rangers look great lifted. If you don't like BL'd Rangers sell yours and get a chevy.

Don't just take someone's word. Ask all 1,2394,967,129 of us on here that have BL'd trucks if we've had problems with ours and what problems they are and how bad they are.
Bottom line: If you want a lift, but can't afford a Superlift, a body lift is the only option...unless you have a crane or forklift sitting around.

Good luck finding a 2" body lift. You can buy the 3" one and cut all the blocks to 2" or................................................ .................................................. ...............................buy some hockey pucks and glue two together and then use those as blocks for a 2" lift. I knew a guy that did this. I gave him the idea dang near 5 years ago. He must of thanked me 100 times afterward. Just glue two together with RTV or something, drill a hole and wal'la! Blocks for a body lift!

Remember... it's an '09 so lower than normal rangers... I'm not 100% but I doubt he can fit 32s w/o a body lift... make sure you prekey!!

Don't use hockey pucks... a body lift kit is like $120 or something and it will give you 3" and all the brackets/hose extensions you need... only thing additional is the shift extender if you're manual trans... well worth it!!
