im hopping 4 inch superlift with 1 inch body lift and leveling keys with about 1-2 inches on lift also any recomendation from experience for back spacing and offset on rims and width


i cannot put a 3 inch body lift because i have an after market bumper and i would need to make some plates

Please do not buy levling keys. Just crank your torsion bars for free and achice the same amount of lift.

Maxed out yes it will ride a little rougher. To get the 1-2" you want they wont be maxed and it wont be rough. It is your money man. If you wanna spend 100+ dollars on something you can do for free go ahead.

im with stl, my first t-bar crank i did to just level it out, the truck rode fine, didnt start riding like crap till i maxed it out, and even then after a few weeks i got used to the ride.

Since you are gonna do a suspension lift. You will need new shocks anyways. So if they were maxed out the new shocks would probably benefit you over stock shocks with maxed bars.

You can crank them all the way and the ride is not that bad. you will have the same issues that i did with the bars not cranking as high as other rangers thanks to the extra weight. as for actual lifts on it you can go with the superlift and keep the shitty torsion bars which just don't ride well ever or go with a SAS and run a 6" suspension lift fitting 35s without even breaking a sweat.

sas is solid axel swap right? from what im seeing on this it takes a shop where you can work on your vehicle for a few weeks .... correct me if i am wrong ... other than not having the shop where i can leave my vehicle over night i wouldent know where to start :S would love to do it but unless they sell a kit that can be installed in a weekend im screwed on that

What are you trying to do with it bro/mall crawl trucks can get lifted to the moon. Functionally most people wont go over 7" or so with that much lift and trimming there isn't a tire that wont fit. mine sits a little tall in all honesty wish I would have though some things through earlier and gone lower COG and a D60/10.25 to begin with.
