Default Best lift kit for 04 4x4 ???

I was looking at getting a suspension lift kit for my 2004 ranger 4.0L 4x4. Does anyone know of a good quality kit for a reasonable price?

Cheapest suspension kit worth anything is 1700$ superlift 4-6"

But you can crank your bars and do a shackel or aal in the rear for about 100 2-2.5"

It will have a stiffer ride.

Superlift is pretty much your only option, you could upgrade the Superlift with a custom coilover conversion. That isn't cheap though

If u crank ur bars...get an alignment done asap..or it will roast your tires..
No it doesnt make it ride that much different.

You probably don't notice since torsion bars suck ass anyway.

Mine road stiffer, not much, but it did.

Coilovers are worth the upgrade if you save your money and wait

I think shocks play a big part too...I cranked my tbars like maybe 1.5-2 inches then had an alignment done.. I didnt really notice much difference in the ride...
