Homemade body lift
 
Does anyone know a cheap way to do a two inch body lift on a 05 ford ranger I don't wanna send a lot of money on it but I wanna get it to fit a lil bigger tires so it's a little higher off the ground

A true body lift runs less than $200.

It's not worth half-assing.

Worst case, there is nothing wrong with saving up some money and buying the kit once you have it.

Too much crap to fix with a 2 inch.. steering ext, bumper brackets, ground strap brackets, Rad drop etc. Its either do a 1 inch or suck it up and spend 150-200 dollars for a 3 inch. Lift and cheap shouldnt go together.

Plus, larger tires would cost substantially more than the body lift would.

The cheapest I've found is like 400 and I don't wanna go big on a body I don't like the Nasty gap it leaves you know I guess I'll just go with the torsion keys those are decent priced

I know tires aren't cheap I got a 1947 Willys jeep on 35 mud terrains

New ball joints and alignments every 3 months add up quick.....

Cranked torsion keys will cost you much more in the long run....

Performance Accessories body kit runs like $200 and change.

Amazon was cheaper than summit, and free overnight shipping!

Either way..It's "cheap"

Yup...so cheap, it was cheaper than new bed bolts and faster to get, which is why my truck got a body lift. Which led to the downward spiral of modding it. Damn it.

I'll have to check summit and I ain't got a bed on my truck but I'll just keep looking around right now I got 31s under my truck but I wanna go a lil bigger
