Default Need Lift for 08 Ranger!

In need of major help! Looking for body lift for my ranger and cannot find one credible place for it... All local shops say only a suspension lift will work for my truck and no body lifts are made for it... I read that ne ranger 01 and above there kits will work but i have independant front slame suspension not coils a minor problem i thought til now.... Ne feedback is greatly appreciated...

Ultimate plan is crank t bars add body lift add 32 to 33in tires and live my dream of marrying a supermodel! but all rests with a lift!

Since you have an 08 4x4. You can do the pre-key mod (switch in torsion keys from a pre-06 Ranger, since they dropped the Ranger lower after 05) then crank the t-bars to fit 32s. Or you can leave your suspension as is and not get a harsher ride by cranking the tbars and get a 3" body lift and easily get 33s on there. Any body lift from 01+ will work for yours.

Well if you get some keys from one older than 05 you will be higher as well.

Kinda sucks i just sold a set a keys like that there pre 07. But yeah get a body lift off Summit man anything 98 & newer is pretty well the same.

For saving your quality of ride Remove your Sway Bar. The body roll really isn't that bad hell i'm double lifted and i don't have a sway bar on!

Body lifts really don't change your center of gravity much. Suspension lifts affect it more.

I put a bodylift on an 08 xlt 4x4.....only difference between it and the 98-05 kits were the fuel neck vent tube diameter size. Trip to home depot for somehose barbs cured that.

Just buy the 01-05 PA kit.

only difference that ive heard on the trucks conserning a boby lift is that the bed has two more bolts, but the body lift kit usually come with extra bolts and blocks anyways, theyll fit fine

in 09+ trucks...

kits come with 14 total blocks, at least the PA kits do(12 needed for supercab shortbed/reg cab short bed, 14 needed for reg cab long bed.) If someone wanted to BL a 09+ shortbed, they could order the additional two blocks and bolts straight from PA for about $3 per block and $3 per bolt(or so...idk prices on bolts). 09+ long bed, i havn't a clue how many bolts are needed for the bed.
