Icon4 2000 Ranger suspension lift options??

I have a completely stock 2000 4x4 Ranger that i wanted to lift and get big wheels and tires for. I want a pretty big lift, hopefully around six to eight inches, and tires in the range of about 35". My problem is that i haven't been able to find hardly any lift kits for a 2000, and the few I have found are at the most four inches and much more expensive then lifts for other trucks. Does anyone have any suggestions or help on where I could find a lift kit for this model Ranger???

search please?




To get good clearence for 35's....you need the following...

3" PA bodylift.
4" Superlift Suspension lift or...
5" RCD coil-over Suspension lift.

Pretty much the only options.


But....when i had no flares and no valence, I was running 35's w/ just a 3" bodylift...

for the 4" Superlift Suspension lift do you really need the replacement front drive shaft?

That's a touchy subject man haha..

I'm rockin almost 9k miles since my lift and i haven't run the shaft (knock on wood).... You can either do it at the start, or wait until the stock driveshaft goes out.. if it does..

I'm waiting until mine takes a poop.

Weird thing is.....that the RCD kit says nothing about a front shaft.. The Superlift kit does. And the RCD is 1" more lift.
