Yup he is correct. My 4wd site just as high as t bars cranked. I dont run mine all the way up unless u want to buy new balljoints constantly. Like he said, rangers have horible control arm angles on the ball joint. If you have no lift you cant go more than the 5 inch travel fox coilover. With no extended eyelet. The only way you could use a little longer shock would be to put shock hoops on so that the mounting point of the top of the shock is higher. When i cycle my suspension i cant quite fully extend the shock because the coil hits the upper control arm. Its almost extended all the way. Limit straps stretch to a little. When i cycle it up the shock compesses befor the tire hits anything. Thats why i was thinking of putting a shock hoop on and a 6 1/2 inch travel shock cuz their is room for the wheel to go up a ways further. Im talking fox shocks. A different brand shock with the same travel could have different compressed and extended lengths.
