Default Hockey puck lift

I'm thinking about lifting my 2000 ranger on some hockey pucks cause it's real cheap! What's the general opinion on that?

I say go for it, but all the ball busters on here are gonna say it's unsafe and just to pony up the cash. Id do it tho.

They won't be as durable as a regular body lift and not as safe. I would just get a body lift of summit. Really not that much

hockey pucks !! Great Idea !! Throw them on their and take some pics ! Hockey Pucks sure do take a pounding on the ice - looks like they would work for a body lift too. I may throw a puck on top of my existing lift if I ever get this motor in and running

Hockey pucks take a pounding on the ice...from a wodden stick....they arent sandwiched between steel and torqued and exposed to the elements!!
Go ahead and use pucks..be cheap...and when they crack and bust and cause damage to your truck..dont say we didnt warn u.....

A summit racing body lift kit with everything u need is only $159.

Ok before u even consider using hockey pucks...get a hockey puck and drill a hole thru it...then put it between two steel pieces and run a bolt thru it and tighten it...watch the puck crack...
Then go to summit racing. com and buy the lift kit...

has anyone asked if hes trying to do a coil spacer lift? coil spacers are sometimes referred to as hockey pucks. still, dont do that either. both are bad ideas. get lift spindles.
