Default 2010 Ranger Suspension Lift

I am the proud owner of a 2010 Ranger Sport 4x4 and I desperately want to put my truck on a suspension lift. I was thinking somewhere in the neighborhood of 4 inches, but the problem is that I have been totally unable to find anything, kit wise. I don't know what it is about the 2010's but parts are hard as hell to come by. If any of you have any suggestions, please let me know

By the way, I am an avid off-roader, so any other recommendations are much appreciated. Thank you!

You have the 4" superlift and that is it...

However I am uncertain about the rear as this is the first year they have disc brakes...so not sure what complications there could be for the rear lift...

2010 parts are hard to come by 'cause they are so new. Give it a few years and it will be more common. I think about 99% of the stuff off of a 2006+ should fit and for certain things you could probably go back even further...

i want a full 6" coil-over conversion suspension system with new leafs springs for the rear to come out from some big suspension company... like say Fabtech, Procomp, BDS, Superlift, Rancho, Skyjacker, etc.. just make it around $2,500 like all the other full 6" lifts for other trucks and i'd be all over that thing in a heart beat no questions asked... it'll probably come out like a month after i get the 4" superlift...

rancho was the only company that even made a prototype which was a 4" coilover conversion lift like RCD. But no plans on producing it

I mean, I think a 4" lift would be sufficient. That would bring me to around the height of an f150 offroad, wouldn't it?

I guess they decided the market wasn't big enough.

The main problem with the RCD is the coilovers that come stock are not strong enough and sag. They are only 650# and I now have 800#. Then the diff drop bracket has a bad habit of breaking, that has been reinforced. I also have extended CV shaft's but the kit comes with spacers for the stock shafts which I didn't have and later bought for my spares. There is also another bracket that some people have had break but I haven't had a problem.
