Default Suspension Lift for 2011 ranger

So i have been looking online and i have not seen any posts regarding suspension lifts for the newer models.

Does anyone know who or even if they make suspension lifts for a 2011 Ranger 4x4 Sport model? I'm looking for about 3 inches of lift so i can fit some 33's comfortably.

Thanks

superlift is your only option. unless you do a body lift. any 1998+ 4x4 lift will work for you

I just got off the phone with the guys from SuperLift says that since i have traction control its basically impossible to do a lift and not mess with all of the electrical sensors and such.

I also called Camburg but they only do lifts for the 2wd. I called a couple of other places and they basically told me the same. Seems like there is no money in making a lift for a truck that is no longer going to be around?

Has anyone had any luck with the '11 models and a superlift? I want to steer away from a body lift.

What does it do to the traction control? I have a 2011 XLT 2wd 5 speed and it has the traction control button

It probably just throws off the sensors. You could just pull the fuse for stability control (i know some guys do that when wheeling), but then your dash light would be on. So then you take the dash light out and problem solved!

It won't do anything I have a 2010 with 6" front and 4.5" rear lift and I took out my swaybar. With no issues. As for the super lift it can be done also there is two ford rangers at a local dealership with super lifts installed on 2011, and that's off the showroom floor with warranty!!!!
