Lift on a 2007 ranger 2wd

I just bought a new 2007 ranger sport. It is a 2wd truck and I am thinking of putting a 3 inch body lift on the frame plus a 3 inch front spindle kit and rear 3 inch shackles to get 6 inches of lift, also installing 33 inch tires would set me up 2 inches more so 8 inches of lift, I would like to know what everyone else thinks of my idea of a bran new truck getting lifted and over 3000 for the job.

I say screw the warranty! lol, go for it man. IMO, Its better to have your truck the way you want it rather than worry about what "might" break.

I would run 35s with a BL and spindles, 33s will look small.

i have seen a blue sport same model in my area lifted like that, it looks good, ask yourself this, whatever the price of your truck was say 15k for example, if there was a model for 18k with all that stuff but youd have to disemble the lift kit if u took it in for warrenty work would you do it ?

I bought a brand new 2001 Ranger 4x4, double lifted it w/15x10's and 35's. Motor blew at 13,000 miles...Ford didnít say a damn thing to me about my lift. I even ended up suing Ford over it because they phucked it up worse and wouldnít take the truck back and at no point did the lift come into question, had to take it back 12 times after the original warranty work. I won, thatís the reason I have my current 04.
