Default 3" Hockey Puck Lift With Manual Transmission.

Hello everyone, I was online and saw a cheap body lift that involved using hockey pucks. So my question is can a body lift be done a a Ranger with a 5 speed Manual Transmission without modifying the clutch linkage? Also the lift would be a 3" body lift.

I would steer clear of the hockey pucks, I am pretty sure you need the linkage extension

on the manuals there is no linkage, its just hydrolic lines, there should be enough room for them to make it. The only extension that is critical that I know of is the steering shaft ext.

So, yeah it theoraticaly should work and probably would, you'd just have to figure out the shaft ext.

I have a BL on my manual, had no problems with any of the lines.

I have seen people use a shifter from an f-150 also, instead of the shifter ext. I don't have on in mine, It still works fine but the shiter is just lower, I actaull like it. Since both my trucks are manual I have one of each
