Hey guys, anyone around the houston area has done a body lift before?
I been itching for a lift on my ranger for a while now... was thinking about the spindle... but i dont want to shell out so much money for a set of good spindles and new SS brake lines...

So i want to go with the body lift route... but i have no idea how to do.... so i was wondering if anyone would like to come and help me get the job done =[

You dont need to shell out a ton for spindles. Ebay spindles made by ... somethiMAX (forgot the manufacturer) are built just as good as the Doetsch ones, but mimic the fabtech ones. Im running a set on mine. I have a set of them with shackles and an add a leaf in the rear. Probably paid around $450 total. Theres no need for brake lines. If thats in your budget over a BL, but thats up to you. Id be willing to help out either way.

Well my brake lines look pretty tight on my caliper already...
Doesnt seem like there is anymore slack for a extra 3inch lift....

The maxtrac spindles are not being sold on ebay anymore....
and i was thinking of i get the spindles i might have problems with making u turns/tight turns.... In houston u encounter alot of tight turns u know...

So if a body lift is cheaper and i dont have to deal with losing control over my brakes... i rather do the body lift than spindles....

omg i just tried looking at the PA body lift instruction... is like hell to me.
There is like TONS of stuff need to come off, then put the spacers and put them back on.

Also i have a lund visor coming in next week ^^
Anyone know a paint shop that does it painting at a reasonable rate?

It's really not as bad as it looks lol. Just remove panels, remove bolts, jack up cab, install blocks, and install bolts. Took my dad and I one day to do
