I am new to the site and would like to ask some advice. I have a 2004 4door Supercab Ranger Edge, it is a 4X2 ( I know wish I would have bought the 4X4 also but I interstate drive alot). Can you put a body lift on a 4X2 and would it look right? I would like to have it set up a bite higher and a more aggressive look. It has the stock 235/75/15's that are due to replace soon.

yes you can body lift your edge it will look good your better off putting spindle lift on it but body is cheaper. some 33x12.5x15 on some 15x8 or 15x10

spindles are REAL easy to put on... hardest part is gettin the ball joints out... go to a shop that does lifts.. talk to an installer and tell him you will take him out to dinner n **** if he helps ya put the lift on, on the side. dinner or beer, you dont know what some ppl will do for a case of beer haha
welcome

Tomorrow I am going to get an ailiment and my T-bar cranked to level off the truck. Next step will be the tires I am guessing.

Welcome!

I have a Fabtech Spindle Lift, larger blocks and a lift shackle, and a bit of torsion crank and I'm running 35's on my 2002, 4x2 Edge. I put an FX4 31 spline rear axle on, and a locker, and it offroads half-decently. Lots you can do with a 4x2 -- though I'm converting this to a 4x4 this spring with a SAS and so on.
