Default 2001 Ranger XLT 4x4 lift kit?

Hi all,

I have an 01 XLT 4x4 and I want to jack it up at least 3". Ive seen kits online that range in price from $300 to $1,700 and consist of spacers, bigger shocks and extra suspension leafs. I'm a carpenter by trade so I don't know much about mechanics but I have a buddy that could install whatever I need so if anyone could suggest some kind of one-stop solution for me would be boss.

um well theres a 3" body lift from Performance Accesories thats only like 250-300 dollars or less. since you have the 4x4 your only other option is the 4" Superlift for $1600 or the Dixon Bros for like $5000 or some crazyness like that.
for you i would recommend the 3" BL

3" Performance Accessories bodylift WITH the bed support blocks installed. It's priced at $200-250. There's tons of info here on installation and info on the kit and results. My opinion: if you can tighten and loosen a nut and bolt, you can install a bodylift. Max reccommended tire size is 33x12.50R15 or something of similar size in metric form(305/75R16)
