You'd spend more money trying to put an f150 lift on your ranger than you would just buying one meant for a ranger. There is a reason suspension lifts are vehicle specific.

I've heard the front axel of the two is similar one is a d35 and one is a hybrid of a d35. This was drunken mentioned at silver lake about using f150 stuff on a ranger.

I can't mention much more as I was one of the drunken.

I do agree with Quaxu but if you are gonna do a swap, the TTB suspension trucks might be easiest to weld wider shock towers for the fullsize TTB.

That's cheap when you think of not only the price of buying an F150 lift, but the F150 suspension parts, the labor to remove the stock parts, install the F150 lift and suspension so that it's align able, and custom make tie rods to adapt from the ranger rack to the F150 suspension.

That right there at any shop around here is closer to 10k all said and done, with little benefit. Like I said, companies make ranger specific lifts for a reason. If you enjoy wasting thousands of dollars, send me a PM and I'll get you taken care of. Otherwise, stop being stupid and buy a ranger specific lift. If you can't afford a super lift, then you can't afford the other expenses required to properly lift your truck.

I'm not a fan of BLs but that's another option for him.
