Copy and paste time


Your lift options are pretty limited for the 1998 and up 4x4 Rangers. You’ve basically got 3 choices.

-adjust your torsion bars using your STOCK torsion keys (don’t waste your time or money on lift keys). You can usually get 1-2” of adjustment out of the stock suspension, depending on how worn the torsion bars are. Any more than that and you start adding excessive wear to ball joints and cv shafts. Also, the more you adjust things, the stiffer your ride will get. This “lift” is free + the cost of an alignment. (Because you have an 08 or newer truck, you could swap your torsion keys and rear lift blocks for those from a pre 2008 truck. This will give you an inch or so of lift)

-3” body lift. This usually runs $250 ish plus instal. It’s basically a bunch of plastic spacers that lift the body off of the frame

-4” super lift. This runs $2,000 ish (with the superlift front driveshaft) + instal. This is the only true suspension lift for our trucks anymore.

- Vegas Desert Fab also offers a long travel kit that increases whelk travel and gives 2-3” of lift, but that’s a lot more money and a whole nother can of worms


I personally run the superlift on my truck, but that’s mainly because I found a good deal on a used one.
