My next door neighbor has a F-150 that has a body lift and it messed up the front end.
If or when I get a lift I'm gonna do a Suspension Lift, it'll be more expensive, but I think it'll be worth it from what I have heard.

Lots of people do. That's the main reason for it.

You can fit 33x1250 or 34's with a Flareside and bumper... without a bumper, Flareside can fit 35's like Griggs, but he has a spindle lift. And with out a body lift a flareside can fit a 285/75-16 at most, that's about a 33x11.50.

Stepside (or w/e they're called) can fit 33x1250 without a body lift, like Any Roach (Roach) and Ben (Ranger1)... But Andy has a spindle lift and 35's

Yeah, Doestch/Fabtech/Procomp spindle lifts, RCD Coilover Conversion (removes Torsion bars), Camburg Spindle Kit, various Long Travel kits, and 4x4s get a Superlift

www.jusnesmodified.com has the Fabtech spindle lifts. $700
www.camburg.com has the Camburg one. $1900-2500 ?? 2 diff kits.
www.rockymountainsusp.com has the RCD kit. ~$2200

Long Travel kits go for about 5K and up cause they are all handmade.

That 5.5" lift was probably the Fabtech Ultimate lift... Not for Edges... All the other 2wd Rangers have coil spring suspensions. Our 2wd Edges have torsion bars.

from what ive seen on the 2wd's lifted i like the look of the spindle lift and if you wanna go bigger the 3" body lift is just waiting to be purchased.. make sure you get it with all the extensions!

w-w-w-w-wwrrrrrong.

First of all, flareside and stepside is exsactly the same thing. Rangers with "flat sides" are called "fleetside".

Stepside(flareside) trucks always fit bigger tires in the back. Jus for reference.
