new from Oregon

hey guys-

I have a 2000 ranger xlt extended cab, I want to get it lifted, but i'm having trouble finding one. Auto stores are telling me that it's basically a complete suspension rebuild to do it and costing over 2 g's! Is there any cheaper alternatives that would allow me to fit 33's on it and keep things solid? Also, does anyone elses make clunking noise while shifting? Or any ideas on what that could be?

Your choices are Superlift (about $1600) RCD (over $2000), or a body lift ($150) The labor on these will be fairly high as well.

What are your skills man? Welcome from one Oregon Member to another!

Superlift is easy to do... I've done 2 of them in the last 3 months and I have an RCD myself

Easiest lift by far is the Body lift though.... Matthew, you should come to the NW Ranger meet next weekend.... Should be a good one!
