Summit probably has the cheapest production body kit. Probably around $150 for a 3".

Now granted if that is too much still you could go with a hockey puck lift.... but that's an entirely different argument. Needless to say I wouldn't do the hockey puck thing. Just wouldn't feel save. The way I see it is if $150 is too much money, you should probably just not look into modifying your truck. Cause it's only going to get more expensive.

Don't you have torsion bars? If so, you could just crank them a little bit to get a couple inches.

If you have a coil sprung truck....i'm sure they have a small polyeurothane leveling kit for it.

If you have torsion bars....crank them bars!!

You could always do the $61 1" body lift mod.

for 2"....pretty much your option is a spindle. I think they make about 1" or 1.5" coil spacers....but that may just be the ibeam trucks.

i got coils in the front and you can get soil spacer that look like horseshoes and a 1 1/2'' spacer gives you about 3'' of lift because of the angle. and then you can do 2'' shackles in the back. cost me about $78

Buy a bodylift. $129.95 at summit.

Or coils for about $100

Or spacers for about $80

Just body lift the front!





lol kidding.

Just find you some spacers since it will be for looks. Then again I know people that wheel the crap out of truck with spacers and have no problems.


EDIT: Will F150 coils fit on the TIB rangers?

From what I remember goody, the hockey puck is the same as a body lift, but you just drill holes in the puck.

no the hockey puck is a super cheap body lift, instead of the black 3'' round spacers you get in teh body lift you use hockey pucks. my kit was fifty bucks and i got it from some guys store on ebay and i found the shackles for the back on another site if i figure out where ill let you know. hte shackles were $22 and the spacers were like $55 or something. anyway i lifted it about 3'' in the front and 2'' in the back and you can't see through the back of the truck like with a body lift and its way easier to install. took about four hours total
