Pa 3" Body lift on 2005 Ranger

I went to summit.com to check out the PA 3" body lift and on applications it says that 2000 is the newest year that this lift works with. Does that lift work on the 05 ranger or does summit just not carry the appropriate lift?

3" body lift does work with the 05 ranger only one problem we have found the 04+ trucks they made the filler neck a little smaller so it is a PITA to put the filler neck extention in. there is a fix though just get longer tubing to begin with...

Yes Zach is right, the kit I installed on my truck was a part number 70033. The filler neck is slightly smaller on the 04+ as Zach mentioned. We got it on there but it was not fun, I have contacted PA and they are aware of it and trying to work something out.

That kit isn't exactly made for the trail buggy or hard offroad mudder. Camburg is a SCORE racing team. Therefor their products are mainly for the Desert enthusiast. I'm not telling you not to get their product. I'm sure it would perform really due to their expertise in offroading.

If you are looking for some more ground clearance so you can run 33"s and have some fun on the trails with your buddies, if you are 2wd I would recommend a Spindle lift from Pro comp or Doestch. They make some really nice products and stand by their name. With an add a leaf in the rear you would be able to do wonders. Now if you are 4wd, your options are limited. There is an RCD lift out that will give you roughly 5.5"s of clearance.



The good thing about this kit is that it removes your stock torsion bars and sticks you with a 2wd similar Front Coil-over suspension set up. This kit will run you around 2,299$ For the kit.

There is also a 4" superlift, that is bolt on. The RCD lift mentioned above will require minor welding but should be done by a professional none-the-less.
The Superlift suspension lift on the other hand is bolt on. It will allow you to run a 33" tire with ease as will the RCD suspension system.

This kit will roughly run you around 1,500$ for the kit.

Now if you are 2wd your options are literally unlimited...
Hope this helps.
Best of luck

Pester DeviousFred over on OffRoadRangers.com. He has the 3 inch PA lift on his '05 FX4LII. Matter of fact, Fred posts here every now and then, but haven't seen him much lately?

I am planning on getting an RCD lift this spring, the reason I am getting a body lift now is because I plan on running 35" tires once my lifting is all said and done. Thanks for the help guys

I am not sure if this will make a difference to anyone but It sounds like what he was describing was PA part number 833. it is for 98-00 rangers.
the correct kit as you mention is the 70033 made for 01-05 rangers. I just wanted to make sure that he doesn't buy the one he is talking about if indeed it is the 833 kit.
also I recently got together with a member of STR-OFFROAD and did a comparison of the 2 body lifts to figure out why there is such a price difference. so if anyone is interested you can see a brief writeup of it at. body lift comparison

It will work just fine, it worked just fine on my 2003. I have installed 2 of them now one on my 2003 and one on Winks's 2004 both of them we did not use the filler thing on the gas line, the hose is long enough stock. Both of them were flareside beds I don't know if it makes a difference.

Yes the one I got from summit is made by Performance Accessory, it had everything I needed front and rear bumper relocation brackets, radiator lowering bracket, steering extention. The only extra things i bought was stick shift extension which is required for manual trannys, and I did it right by getting the gap guards. If you are going to run 33's you don't need the AAL but I got them to clear my 35's. i paid $330 for everything. One day if I get real bored or somebody else has a BL to install I will do a good how to. If you were closer i would come give you a hand.

summit does price matching just call them up 1-800-230-3030
Tell them you saw it advertised on on 4wheelparts.com for $150 and the gap guards for $60 if you need the shifter ext $30. They are all a little cheaper now then when I bought mine.

I was justing saying the only right way to do it is to use some kind of gap guard other wise you have half @ssed the lift. $15, free or buy the one from PA doesn't matter its all done the right way.

Dude nothing against you Zach but man I feel like anything I say somebody picks it apart and questions me on it, dam make me not want to post anymore.
