Body Lift

I'm wanting to put a body lift on my 2wd Ranger edge. I want a decent lift but can't find any good ones. Any ideas or thoughts? Also for future reference what type of tire?

personally you have a 2wd edge...100% best lift for your truck is a spindle lift and doing something to lift the rear it looks 100000000000000x better then a body

With a body lift your frame is where it was, your lucky and have a 4x2 which = cheap lifts via spindles. Roach fit 35's under his ranger with a spindle lift kit.

I did a body lift on my truck because it is 4 wheel drive. If it were 2 wheel drive, I would've saved the extra money for a spindle lift. The bodylift (on my truck anyhow) was a pain in the ***. The spindle lift is more beneficial, and depending on the brand, will probably run you somewhere around $500 for a good setup which isn't a high price to pay.

NHL approved. Seriously dont use that method, might as well be lifting your truck with legos.

Safety over style.

Hockey puck lifts are dangerous, and plain stupid.

$39.99 for a bodylift, wow, I wish a good reliable BL cost that little. Performance Accessories is the company to go with and they only have 3" kits for rangers. You want the 98-00 or 01-02 kit. Yes the 01-02 kit fits your 03. Expect to pay between 159.99 and 199.99 for a PA kit.

Procomp spindles look the best...IMO...If I were you I would go with a spindle lift then a body lift if you want more lift.
