Hi. Blazed96 here from broward county fla.

WHat's up My name is luis a.k.a. Blazed. I been in to trucks since i was young. Ive mostly been into lowering trucks but never thought about ever wanting to lift anything. i built a 96 4dr chevy blazer and did couple thing to it before i sold it , now i bought a 08 ranger 2wd and was surching for lifts kits when i ran in to this site hope to meet some ppl that can give me some info on lifting.

blazer built it and sold it,

does it have torsion bars or coil springs up front? either way check out fabtech, they make kits for both front ends. and to get 7-8 in. youll have to do a suspension and body lift, check out oh5edge's rig, its lifted about that much.

yah you have to get different wheels, the backspacing on the stock rims will rub the new spindles that you put on

i think its just the fabtech lift, doestech(i dont remember how to spell it) also makes spindles but ive heard nothing but bad things about them, youd be happy with the fabtech lift, i believe you could get some wheel spacers if you really wanna keep your stock rims.

Same as my truck basically...you got coils...so this kit would be good

http://www.modbargains.com/product.a...806_55_coil_BH

or this

http://www.modbargains.com/product.a..._9800_3spin_BH

and you know the body lift.

I wouldn't reccomend prerunner fenders...but if you wanna run em run em!
