Default 2wd ranger coil lift options

Im looking to get like 3 or 4 inches of lift to my ranger. im thinking about doing spindles on the front with shackles and blocks on the rear. Id love to see some pictures to get an idea of what it looks like. this is my truck as of now

Go spindles and a add a leaf. If your patient you can get a deal. 2 years I waited and got maxtrac 3" lifted spindles brand new for $175 off Craigslist. With that you can get 31s or 32s tires to fit.

Very nice. Do your front tires stick out more then the rear, since you did the spindle lift? Mine do for some reason.

yep, but an exploder 8.8 rear axle swap should fix that, as well as the pathetic 1-wheel drive situation.

O cool ya that's the plan. I need 4.10s. I plan to run 33s or even 35s after my body lift.
