Not true. Body lift will allow for bigger tires. It's what allows the frame pieces and such to become higher off the ground. Suspension lift does that as well, but at a much higher price. Suspension lifts drop the geometry down to allow for more tire, which turns around and lifts the frame off the ground... I think I may have just run myself around in a circle talking about this... haha

I'm way too tired to be on here right now lol

And the diff will still inhibit you with the drop bracketry. Both allow you room for bigger tires which gives you more ground clearance, which is the same in the end.

No lol you don't have any 4wd components. You can get 3" lift spindles from Doestch or Fabtech.

suspension lift from superlift and or a body lift get you the same end. lifted high enough to put 33's or bigger. body lift 120 bucks superlift add a zero. people wheel the **** out of body lifted rangers. the superlift really does not give you anything more over the body lift, you will still only flex like a stock truck. so it really comes down to how much do you want to spend.

Well for the most part I know I dont have 4wheel parts but I know the suspension is almost the same as I have torsion bars and what not. So what about the rear end?

the rear suspension is the same across the board in rangers. and since you have a 2wd there are many many more lift options for you. cheaper and more effective.

Try searching instead of clogging up this guys thread. Theres info all over the site. Your only option for lifting the front is spindles, rear theres more.
