Default Is it possible to lift a 2wd coil front Ranger?

So I've been thinking about lifting my '11 2wd Ranger. Nothing crazy and no Pre-Runner look. I'm looking at some sort of kit that might net me stock level II like height or possibly an inch higher than that. I would like to fit 31 x 10.5's and BFG All Terrains. I don't plan on taking this truck off-road, I just want a more aggressive look. Is this possible or not and if so what do I need to get this done. Thanks in advance.

you can fit 31s stock. get a spindle lift for the front, and either an add a leaf or a block for the rear. or a body lift (cheesy, dorky) for the cheapest alternative. search a bit, it's all been covered multiple times

i did mine, i got these coil spacers. best ones by far, not cheaply made, but a great price. i recomend these highly. i got a recomendation for these from someone here.

i paid to have mine put in, as coil springs are dangerous when compressed, learned that the hard way, ouch!

spacers will level it for you, and doing a bl on top of it would look sick, since thats what im doing

What are these made out of? They look like the rubber ones that lose their firmness and cause the front end to drop over time.

Is there a specific reason you didn't go with the metal/aluminum spacers that are available?

I ask, because I'm still researching/deciding on how to level my truck.

ive seen metal ones crack under pressure. these ones are some poly-material (check theyre site) and there very strong, they will compress a little, but its miniscule. i like how mine have held up and how they look.

theyre not easy.. have to unbolt everything and compress the spring, take it out, and squeeze it out, dangerous. and then get it back up in with the added 2in spacer. i tried with my dad, and got into a mess, put it back together stock, then paid someone to do it.
