Depends on how much you want to spend. I wouldn't say you would go threw ball joints left and right, but I would not say they would not wear out prematurly.


If you are just doing minor offroad I don't see anyreason to no go with a super lift.

But before you buy ANY SAS parts do ALOT of research and make sure you have the re-sources and people with knowledge

You might get a set for 250, but you will probably be putting in $1000 bucks to get each axel road worthy.

Man I am scared. Guys please do not think that all Canadians are like this....

Beyond a lift kit, there is nearly nothing you can do for rangers. We are the Red-headed step child of the aftermarket world.
