Default James Duff TTB Lift

Ive been looking at the James Duff Stage 2 3" suspension lift kits. My girlfriend's (soon to be mine) '94 needs suspension work anyways so I figured I'd go this route. http://www.jamesduff.com/broncoII/4wdsusp.html

its $1,200 but it seems like its worth it and they know what theyre doing when it comes to rangers/bII's/explorers. it comes with the extended radius arms and dual shock coil buckets

anybody have experience with their lifts?


Im trying to pay my truck off as soon as I can so I can pretty much park it and drive the '94 again. Gotta drop a different motor in it. it has 197k on it and it needs to be put out to pasture.

Ideally i'd like a 3" suspension and a 2" body lift and run a set of 32"s on it.

just buy a skyjacker 6" system. skyjacker is pretty damn good and cheaper... and they use the same brackets for the 4" and 6" lifts. They have the option of putting the bolts in two different holes so you can just swap out the 4" coils for 6" coils if you so choose and you can get extended radius arms, and still get dual shock set up too if you want. you'd have room to run 33"-35" tire with a 6" lift.

Don't get me wrong, James Duff is a QUALITY product, but too much money for my blood and skyjacker is cheaper per inch of lift without sacrificing that quality. thats my .02

I knew that they made for old school bronco's, but I never knew of anyone that had the kit.

There's a ranger that runs around here sometimes. a few years ago it was orange with stx graphics and it had the extended radius arms but no lift, it was sold then and the kid lifted it via james duff, body lift and fiberglass fenders all the way around. It looks a little goofy because it was flat black but I saw it at advance auto about a month ago and it has the JD dual shock kit in the front.

heres a link to the cheapest i've seen Skyjacker lifts, just in case you wanna look:

http://www.trsfabandoffroad.com/products/skyjacker.htm

I'll vouch for it cuz its from TRS, and its Jim's way of providing parts for us ranger drivers

One major nice thing about Skyjacker(SJ) is they have the extreme drop pitman arm, WORTH EVERY PENNY! i have one, helped get rid of essentially all bump-steer that i had.
