2004 Ford Ranger 2" Body Lift

I know alot of guys are interested in knowing what it would take to buy 2X3" lift blocks and create a 2" BL since noone makes one for the newer rangers( mine is a 2004). I personally think 1" isnt worth the time and effort and the 3" is just too much for me they sell the blocks on ebay for $3 a piece and you can find bolts at a hardware store but I didnt know if the clearance issues would be the same as a 3" BL or not has anyone done this or have any insight??

Im pretty sure with a 2 inch you have to worry about the steering shaft, and all the grounds. Basically everything you would have to do with a 3inch. 1 inch is as far as you can go with out moving grounds and such.

Yeah so if you really wanted a 2in to do it the correct way and make sure its done correctly, buy your blocks and a 3in kit, use your blocks..
