3' Body Lift

Hey guys I have a 92 Ranger XLT i wanna start modding it for offroad and the first mod is gonna be a 3' body lift. Ive never done anything like this before how hard is it to do a body lift or does anyone have a link to a walkthrough of some sort. also what size tires will i be able to fit on it with a 3' bl?

On a standard 4x4, and a 3" bodylift.. you can comfortably fit 33x12.5 tires, the lift itself is very easy, just takes some basic mechanical skills, a T-55, and a T-50 torx bit.. along with a set of normal tools :-)

IMO, you have the cheap easy truck to lift. So a suspension lift, you won't regret it. Suspension lifts are cheap for 97 and older trucks. Do it.

To fit 33's on a gen2, you need 3" body lift and at least a 2" coil spacer lift. The wheel wells are smaller on your truck vs. our trucks.

Yes, 31s will fit with a 3" BL. WowMike was thinking your truck had the IFS front suspension not the TTB.
