6+5 TOTAL LIFT FOR 09 and up RANGERS

Just wanted to post on this because I have a 2010 Ranger FX4 4x4 and all I've been able to find for it is a 3" PA bodylift and the big money 3" suspension lift. I was surfing the web the other day and came across a new lift option. It is a key and AAL but adds 3" in the front, 2" is the rear and four new pro comp shocks. Now if I were to add the Big bucks superlift thats a total of 9+8 of lift. Just sticking with the 6+5 for now though. I am ordering it in the next couple weeks and will add a link to the lift. Im wondering if I should order it without the shocks and buy something other than pro comp, or does Pro comp a good shock?

I don't think that the skyjacker lift is for your year truck. Unless they have recently released one. But I would do a body lift and crank the bars with a shackle on the rear. The front torsion keys are normally a no go.,

Pro comps are terrible, I had the es1000 shocks and I swear the forklifts at work rode about the same as my truck, I have bilsteins now and it's better

ive got procomp es9000 and i love em. depending on if you go off roading more or not you may want the es3000's for a softer/better road ride quality.

the superlift is a 4 inch lift. that is the best option. bodylift is 3 inch and cheapest. those keys you are referencing are a horrible idea. they are only good for wearing out everything in the front end super fast. search for keys on here and you will find all the info you need to NOT do it

besides.. they will NOT give you 3 inch lift from the max u can be right now... if u just crank ur t-bars ull gain an inch or 2... i had BL metal bumper/winch and the bars sagged. i wheeled the truck, after i got bored of seeing the huge rack (i did add a leaf for work things not lift) i desided to install the lift keys nad not crank them all the way just to keep the hight i wouldave had with the stock keys cranked.. and the next trip 1 cv broke the other one was ready to go also! just body lift and superlift! either way keys not good

I am trying to understand your math here. You are talking a super lift @ 4" + a BL @ 3" that = 7" - not sure what you mean by "9+8 or "6+5"

As far as your '09 is concerned I would get the early keys and crank them and do the BL - that's what I have and it is about as high as I would want - I am running 33's but could easily run 35' no rubbing.

$2500 is a lot to spend on a 4" lift since you can get 4" from a little crank and BL.
