You don't need to remove the Red part, it's the only picture I could find. The green arrow is where the adjuster bolt is. You could get some 08+ torsion keys because they're 1 1/2" lower stock.



Or flip your stock keys

Yeah... I'm not sure why Alan & Shane are giving you a hard time. It's true that slamming an edge isn't easy, but you clearly said in the beginning that you didn't want to go very low. Many people have lowered their Ranger edge so don't worry about it, just understand that lowering it beyond the height of a stock XLT is a bit complicated.

This is basically how your Ranger will look:
