2003 Ford Ranger FX4 Body Lifts Hard to Come By???

I am having some issues finding a body lift kit to hook up my 2003 Ford Ranger FX4, it is a 2003, Automatic, 4x4.

Preferably I would like to get it off of a trustable, non-ebay online retailer.


Thanks guys

summitracing, 4wheelparts, and jcwhitney should all have them. Get a Performance Accessories 3" Body Lift.

They are not FX4 specific if that is why you are having trouble "finding" one. They fit xlt to edge to fx4.

Mine was delievered to my house today as a matter of fact. I ordered from summit. Summit does price matching so i told them I saw them cheaper on another site and the guy said ok andgave me the prices I told him.

BL $200
Stick shift extender $35
Gap gaurds $70
I also got a set of add-a-leafs $30

total $335

I see you are an automatic so you wont need the stick shift extender, gap gaurds are just for looks, I am trying to clear 35's so I got the AAL's which you prolly don't need those either.

Probably the Performance Accessories, cause that is the most widely used and regarded bodylift company out there.

Procomp makes Spindles, suspension lifts and AAL's(i am just including lift parts, not all the other parts they make, lol). Which I am guessing he picked up the Procomp AAL's also.

I got Performance Accessories BL, pro comp AAL

I looked around on 4WP but I did not see it listed, i should not have to call them to ask them if they have something if its not on their website I assume they don't have it and I will buy it somewhere else. Summit wanted $215 but they do price matching so I told them I saw it on performancelifts.com for $200 and they gave it to me for $200. Oh well I paid $200 its on my living room floor already so nothing I can do about it now except put it on.

Yeah, I just added pretty much the same line-up to my wishlist, so I can order it as soon as I get all my stuff together.

I need to clear everything with my dad (should be okay with it, although he did have some apprehensions towards body lifts in the past) but I will show him the price comparison between suspension and body lift packages, and I am sure it will change his mind, also the Gap Guards will make it look a lot better than some botched jobs he has evidently seen in the past.

I also think I am going to pick up some AALs they are good and cheap, and that way when I get the money to score new wheels than I can crank the T-bars and have them align everything while they put on the new wheels, (hopefully 33's)

-> ProComp AAL's ~$30
-> Perf. Accessories Gap Guards ~$70
-> Per. Accessories Body Lift ~$215 (I will talk them down to $200)
Total ~$300 No too shaby I must say.


-> In the future possibly these Yokohoma 33's on my Stock 16's

I will keep yall posted on what is going down with my project, should be fun!

Thanks soooo much for all of your help!!
