Re: driveshaft compatability

They are not. 4wd has a built-in slip joint and 2wd slides in and out of the transmission tail housing (lengths are also different)

Re: Helping my son buy his first Ranger

No problem.


You can buy the bodylift with bumper brackets that lift the bumper up 3 to match the body. Youll either have to modify the front tow hooks, get rid of them, or cut the front...

Re: Helping my son buy his first Ranger

Your only lift options for the torsion bar 4wds are adjusting the torsion bars, the 4 superlift drop bracket kit, or a 3 body lift.

Ive never personally installed a body lift, but the process...

Re: 01 Edge T-Bar upgrade from B to 1

Re: Lift kit recommendations for a 2002 ranger edge plus 4x4 3.0

You do bring up a good pint with the torsion bar drop brackets. They are the biggest draw back (other than price) to the superlift kit, and really hurt the break-over clearance (although its still...
