Non drop Torsion Lift Kits?

As everyone knows, lift kits for the rangers drop the torsion bar brackets but what about the companies that sell non drop kits? How does that work? I would definitely get a lift kit for my ranger if it did not drop the torsion bars so low.

RCD sells a kit that does not drop the torsion bar bracketry, but it still drops the lower control arms and differential. The RCD ditches the torsion bars all together in favor of coilovers.

On IFS, you've GOT to drop something. Spindle only lifts work on 4x2's, but not so well on 4x4's -- there's generally just not enough clearance for the axle shaft and joint.

you dont have to drop anything with the dixon bros L/T kit :)
dont think of it as a "desert" suspension, wider stance=more stable, 14" travel keeping 4x4, coil overs. WOOOT

Because Chevy t-bars don't go all the way through the lower control arm like the ranger does.
