Few random questions regarding a superlift kit.

So I already have a 3" BL, my truck came stock on 3" blocks in the rear and the T-bars are cranked, giving me plenty of room for my 35s I have, but I want it taller. However, I want to actually gain the 3-4" of lift from the kit in addition to what I have now. Can I keep my t-bars cranked after the kit or will it damage something? And, I will use either AAL or lift springs in the rear since the kit has blocks and I already have blocks.

Also, where is the cheapest place to get the superlift kit? I found it for $1495.00. Is that the cheapest I'll find?

One last off topic question. Are all year ranger wheels a 5x4.5 bolt pattern? And aren't some jeeps the same bolt pattern? I have a set of 33s on the stock teardrop wheels to get rid of.

Thanks for any help.

You'll be fine with your t-bars cranked. You could even go with Skyjacker Soft-Ride lift leafs in the back for a better ride, but they are kind of costly.

Yes all Ranger wheels are 5x4.5 some Jeeps are as well. The newest gen Wranglers switched to a 5x5.5 I think but the gens before that are 4.5

Superlift is just a drop down bracket kit....everthing gets dropped down and is still up to factory specs and geometry. So cranking is no problem. I'm double lifted right now using the superlift and a bodylift. and i love it!

I can get the superlift for 1300 brand spanking new...that's both front and rear kits.

Your rear options are pretty much endless....shackles, new leafs, blocks, etc. The superlift kit is a block that is to be stacked on top of your 2.5" block...creating about 5.5" of lift. I chose against that route.....i went the AAL + chevy 2" drop shackle + stock 2.5" block. Sits perfect as i gained about 3" of lift in the rear, and about 4.5" in the front. My front is only cranked about 70% of the way up. Before i was superlifted, i was maxxed out on my driver side.

On a side note....while installing the superlift, i'd go ahead and replace the torsion bars with #1 bars like i did. Made a world of difference than my 70k beat up saggy B bars.
