Default 2009 Ranger sport 4x4 Lift

I just got my 09 Ranger 4x4 Sport, and I'm wanting my clearance already.
So first I was thinking of just a leveling kit for the front end, then thought I just wanted a body lift, Then obviously a Suspension lift and tires etc..

Can you guys throw out some lifts for my Ranger. I want to run 33" tires, But don't want to mess up my factory warranty either. Give me some Idea's here guy and gals..

Input is certainly welcome

meh, the body lift might be a good choice if u don't want to screw your warranty. As for suspension check out Superlift. With both lifts you will be able to run a 33in tire.. check out www.ttperformanceinc.com for your ranger needs

Do the PreKey mod(aka leveling kit using 07 and older torsion keys), then do either a 3" PA or Summit bodylift or a 4" Superlift. Steer clear of things advertised as 'leveling kits'...just causes issues with front end wear.

Both are good for 33x12.50 tires.


A real good friend of mine has an '08 that's bodylifted on 33's and she has no trouble getting past the warranty. I'd personally wait til it's a little older in life(like 30,000 miles) before actually lifting it. That way the little stupid bugs are worked out already.

If I were in your shoes, I'd do the PreKey mod, ford wouldn't know anything has changed, and I'd throw on some larger tires(idk what your wheel size is but you can fit up to a 32x11.50 tire if prekeyed). Call it good til those wear out, then throw on the lift and 33's.

Okay, so buying some 07 and older torsion keys will jack it up higher in the front end, then do a 3" body lift aswell to clear the 33 inch tires. I've seen rangers in town with the bumpers sitting in the stock location with the lift though... whats the fix for that?

there are brackets that come with the bodylift to raise the bumpers
