I dont think they have the same driveline as our trucks just by the looks of them. I went to their website and none look like ours. Just go with a 4" superlift then a 3" body lift and itll be cheaper than that thailand lift. You'll be able to fit 35s no problem and anything bigger than 35", your truck will hate you and eat balljoints like its its job

I imagine 7 inches of lift is too much lift for our ranger's drivelines?

I would think so. Going to be some serious angles.

Rotate the rear axel, making the pumpkin point up and put a spacer on the transfer case to lower it.

give it a shot if you want. but if its not advertised in the american market, I doubt it will be easy to work around. I could be wrong, but if it were me, i definitely wouldn't want to be making a $2000 mistake.

Nor would I know why a foreign company would make a lift for a vehicle that doesn't exist in their country, lol. I mean..maybe there's some exported from America but it seems more likely some guy doesn't realize the trucks may be different (I personally do not know how they are diff suspension-wise)

That's what I was thinking. Seven inch drop brackets up front and three inch body lift blocks to drop the t- case for better angles in the back Lol!

I wouldn't do a 7" drop bracket. What would the point be?
3" at most since our American kits are 4-6". Do 2" and rotate the axel to get that magic number. I forget what it is.

I was joking about the 7" drop brackets. I'm pretty sure rotating the axel up and pointing it toward the t case only works if you have a cv driveshaft.
